Qantas is offering 30% off the points required when you book economy Qantas or Jetstar award seats, known as ”Classic Flight Rewards”.

The sale covers Qantas operated flights with a QF flight number and Jetstar operated flights with a JQ flight number. Travel is between 17 April 2018 to 29 December 2018 and bookings need to be made via the Qantas website.

As usual, business and first class redemptions are excluded from the promotion, and there’s no discount on taxes, fees and carrier charges. The full terms and conditions can be found on the promotion page here.

It’s worth noting that Qantas offered a sale of 50% off selected international economy award tickets back in December. However, this current sale could still represent significant value, particularly for families who can nab seats during peak travel periods like school holidays.

If you’re comfortable flying Jetstar, you’ll find that redemption costs are even lower than Qantas, as a 20% discount is applied on Jetstar award flights via the Qantas Website.

I love to travel the world in comfort and style. In fact, there’s really nothing I love more than sitting in a plane at 36,000 feet, a glass of Krug in hand, watching the clouds go by.
