Eligible bookings

Bookings that can be refunded

We'll refund flight bookings made directly with Qantas on this website, via the Qantas app or through a Qantas office, that: 

  • were flights for travel within or from Australia,
  • were paid with cash, a mixture of cash and Qantas Points, Classic Flight Reward bookings, or a combination of Classic Flight Reward and non-Classic Flight Reward bookings, and
  • were made more than 30 days before departure of your first flight.

We'll also refund any amounts for eligible ancillary products included in your flight booking, which are:

  • pre-paid seat requests, 
  • pre-paid additional baggage allowances, and 
  • to offset flight carbon emissions.

Bookings that cannot be refunded

We're not able to refund flight bookings under this policy:

  • For travel departing outside of Australia.
  • Outside the 24-hour cooling off period. The 24-hour cooling off period starts when you make your booking.
  • Booked through a travel agent or other third-party provider.
  • Where the ticket hasn't been issued. If you booked using BPay and transferred the funds within the 24-hour cooling off period but the transfer is processing, contact your local Qantas office for assistance.
  • Made using a Flight Credit.
  • Where your first flight is within 30 days of booking.
  • That have previously been changed or reissued.
  • Bookings for unaccompanied minors
  • Split bookings (where one or more passengers have been separated from the original booking)

We're also not able to refund:

  • Car or hotel reservations, or travel insurance purchased when booked with an eligible flight, and you'll need to contact these vendors directly to request any changes or refunds. They may charge you a change or cancellation fee.
  • Any booking fees paid for bookings initially made through your local Qantas office.
