Things to know

Before changing your flights, there are some things you need to consider.

  • Check your Fare Type for the conditions that apply to your flights and any fees that may apply. You may also need to pay a fare difference.
  • Any changes you make to your flights will apply to every passenger in your booking. If you want to change flights for individual passengers, you'll first need to separate them from the booking. These passengers will be placed in a new booking with a different booking reference and then you can make the changes you need.
  • We're here to help. If you don't have access to make the change online, call your local Qantas office. A change booking fee may apply.

Travel agent and third-party bookings

If you made your booking through a travel agent or other third party, and your fare rules permit changes to your booking, contact your booking provider for assistance.

If travel is imminent and you're not able to contact your travel agent or third-party booking provider, call your local Qantas Office (Service fees may apply).

Ancillary products

If your booking includes pre-selected seat requests or pre-purchased additional baggage, refer to the applicable terms and conditions for more information.

If your booking includes a car or hotel reservation, or travel insurance purchased when booked with your flight, contact these providers directly if you require changes to your booking.

Flights changed by Qantas

Changing your booking online

If the fare rules permit you to make a change to your booking (check your Fare Type), then you may be able to make these changes yourself online. You may need to pay a fee and a fare difference may apply to any changes made to your booking.

The type of changes you can make also depends on if your booking was made with Qantas Points, either a Points Plus Pay - Flights booking or a Classic Flight Reward.
