Should you booking direct or through an online travel agent?

If you book directly through the One&Only Resorts website, you can earn points with a number of popular frequent flyer programs, including Qantas, Velocity and KrisFlyer.

Comparatively, if you book through an online travel agent (OTA) such as Expedia or Hotels.com, you’ll earn points with their own rewards program as well as cashback if you are a Cashrewards member.

Here’s a list of points earn rates for One&Only Resorts:

Booking channel/frequent flyer programPoints earn

British Airways Executive Club2 Avios per USD spent
Emirates Skywards1 mile per USD spent
Etihad Guest1 mile per USD spent
KrisFlyer1 mile per USD spent

Expedia+ and Cashrewards5.5% cashback + 2 Expedia+ points per AUD spent
Hotels.com and Cashrewards5.5% cashback + Hotels.com booking credit
KaligoVaries depending on hotel and price

Our take

It all comes down to price. If prices are comparable and you are loyal to a particular frequent flyer program, then it may make sense to book direct and earn points in that program.

However it’s worth remembering you can score night credits or points from OTA programs from the likes of Hotels.com or Expedia. Start by reading our guide to how to earn cashback with Cashrewards and booking through an OTA.
