|Expiry: 11:59pm Tuesday 12 October 2021|
We generally don’t recommend redeeming Qantas Points for hotel bookings as the value is quite low. But it can be a good idea to earn points on your next stay when booking a cash rate through Qantas Hotels.
There’s not much in particular you need to do. Just visit Qantas Hotels and book a stay. Your 9 points/dollar rate will automatically be displayed at checkout. As an example, here’s how it would work for a stay worth $478.40.
- Normal Qantas Hotels earn (3pts/$): 1,434 Qantas Points (worth $27.25)
- Special Qantas Hotels earn (9pts/$): 4,302 Qantas Points (worth $81.74)
- If you’re a Points Club member (+25%): 5,378 Qantas Points (worth $102.18)
- And if you’re a Points Club Plus member (+50%): 6,453 Qantas Points (worth $122.61)
With a triple points offer, you’re getting real value back in Qantas Points – particularly if you’re also a Points Club or Points Club Plus member!

If you don’t frequently stay at one particular hotel chain, often it can be more lucrative to earn airline frequent flyer points instead. Qantas Hotels is worth including in your price comparison research versus Hotels.com, Expedia and the like, given that all hotels booked through their platform are points-earning.
Read our separate detailed guide to earning points when booking accommodation through Qantas Hotels or through Airbnb. Plus, we explain how you could directly earn Qantas Points through hotel loyalty programs such as Hilton Honors or IHG Rewards Club.
With all other things like price being equal, you are earning a points kickback worth ~6% when booking through Qantas Hotels if you value your Qantas Points at 1.9 cents per point. That reaches closer to ~18% when there’s a triple points offer!
