How to earn Qantas Points with GoCatch rideshares and taxis

GoCatch and Qantas Frequent Flyer joined forces back in October 2015, offering Qantas Points for regular taxi bookings made through the app.

Since then, they have expanded their offerings to compete with Uber, including rideshare and premium services and expanding to all major Australian cities.

You can earn 1 Qantas FF point per $ spent on all GoCatch rides, as long as you pay by credit card or PayPal.

To earn points with goCatch, you’ll need to add your Frequent Flyer number via their iOS or Android app before you make a booking.

Pricing and services

GoCatch Economy (rideshare service)

Pricing is determined by off-peak (most of the time) and peak (Friday and Saturday nights) periods:

GoCar pricing

As you can only pay by card, there is no surcharge on card payments, unlike the taxi service.

GoCatch Taxi (regular taxi service)

GoCatch charges a booking fee of either $1.50 or $2 depending on your state, and you can either pay the driver directly or pay via the app. If you pay via the app the payment fee is 5% of the ride—and that’s the only way you’ll earn Qantas Points.

If you pay the driver directly, you won’t earn points, so it’s not a great deal if you were going to/prefer to use cash anyway, which would avoid the 5% fee.

Other services

GoCatch also offers Maxi for bigger vehicles and Premium for luxury vehicles.

Summing up

More points earning options are always a good thing.

GoCatch now offers a range of rideshare services for different types of vehicles and a valuable earn opportunity with Qantas Frequent Flyer.
