Travelling together, but want to pay separately? Pay Per Person takes away the stress about who's settling the bill. When making payment, each traveller on the same booking can pay for their flights and added extras separately using their own credit or debit card, or share the same card for a few travellers. Payment must be complete for each passenger using their credit or debit card at the time of making the booking. If full payment is not complete, the booking will be cancelled. Credit card fees may apply. Payment cannot be made using a Qantas Flight Credits.
The option to Pay Per Person is available for all flight bookings with a maximum of nine travellers and nine payment cards. Pay Per Person is not available for itineraries that include Carbon Offset. If you're the person making the booking, you must have permission from all individuals to make the booking on their behalf, which includes including their credit or debit card details for payment.
When making your flight booking, you may wish to use more than one form of payment.
Payments for online bookings can be a combination of:
- one credit or debit card per person, per booking (refer to Pay Per Person for more information), or
- Qantas Points plus a credit or debit card per booking.
If you choose to make a booking through your local Qantas office, you may pay with up to two different forms of payment per person per booking:
- two credit or debit cards,
- Qantas Points plus a credit or debit card, or
- Qantas Flight Credit, Qantas Credit or gift voucher plus a credit or debit card.
Days are calculated as a 24 hour period, not calendar days.
