Earning Qantas Points
For bookings made from 9 December 2020, QFF members can earn 1 Qantas Point per AU$1 spent on Eligible Bookings. Eligible Bookings are Journey Beyond Rail Expeditions and Journey Beyond Rail Expedition Holiday Packages and exclude airfares packaged with a Journey Beyond Rail Expedition Holiday Package; bookings made with a promotional or discount code including staff, companion or Friends and Family discounts, travel industry discounts, trade and press familiarisations or prize winners; bookings of Groups and Charters (a Group is 10 guests or more travelling together on one booking. A Charter is when a dedicated train departure is booked by one group or organisation); and bookings made via a distribution partner who is already a participant in the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, including but not limited to Abercrombie & Kent, APT Luxury Travel, Exclusive Travel Group, Intrepid Travel, Luxury Escapes and Peregrine. To earn Qantas Points, a QFF member must make an Eligible Booking via journeybeyondrail.com.au and add their QFF details to the booking prior to the departure date. If you add additional QFF members to the booking and include their QFF numbers, the total points amount will be split equally. For example, if the entire booking will earn 10,000 Qantas Points and you add two QFF members details, each member will earn 5,000 Qantas Points. Points will be credited to the relevant Frequent Flyer account within 8 weeks of the completion of the journey. Qantas Points will be awarded to you based on the final amount of the travelled booking, where a refund is applied after your return, the Qantas Points will be determined by the final amount paid less the refund. Qantas Points will not be earned on cancelled bookings.
From 9 December 2020, QFF members will be able to redeem Qantas Points for Classic Rail Rewards on Eligible Rail Expeditions. Eligible Rail Expeditions are Gold Twin or Gold Single Cabins on Rail Expeditions excluding The Overland. Classic Rail Rewards can be redeemed using Qantas Points only.
Qantas Points will be deducted in full at the time of booking.
Qantas Points will not be earned on Classic Rail Rewards.
Classic Rail Rewards are fully refundable if you change your mind within 14 days of the completion of your booking. However, if you book within 45 days of the departure date and cancel the booking, you will not be eligible for a refund.
There will be a cancellation fee of AU$200 or 25,000 Qantas Points per person if a booking is cancelled more than 14 days after booking and more than 45 days prior to departure. At the time of cancellation, you can choose how you wish to settle the cancellation fee.
When the fee of AU$200 per person is selected, this must be paid directly to Journey Beyond, prior to the full Qantas Points amount being credited to the QFF member’s account. It may take up to 30 days for the Qantas Points to be credited to the Qantas Frequent Flyer account.
There will be a 100% cancellation fee for any booking that is cancelled less than 45 days prior to departure (you will not receive a refund in points).
Changes to the travel date for Classic Rail Rewards bookings may be made by calling 1800 019 642 up to 14 days prior to departure. Changes are subject to the availability of the Classic Rail Rewards fare on the new travel date. An amendment fee of AU$35 per booking (including GST) will be applicable.
