Like many in NSW I had to cancel my New Years plans with the recent COVID spike. This included a road trip from Sydney to Gold Coast (w/2 kids) for which I booked a stay each way to break up the long drive. I had a surplus of points not going anywhere in the current situation.
I now need to cancel these bookings. Qantas is trying to keep business of course and offering a 1,000 points bonus if instead of a full refund (points for me) they will give me a credit + the bonus points. I’m not needing the money back and happy to use it again for travel later on. Is this a good deal? Does this voucher equal good value for points comparison?
Note: voucher can only be used for Qantas hotels (no flights)
One night stay cost $413
Paid 54,816 points (full refund will simply be this back to my account)
Qantas offer is $413 voucher + 1,000 bonus points
