How do Qantas Explorer fares work?

When booking an international Economy flight to Australia or New Zealand, Qantas Explorer allows you to add flights within each country at a discounted rate. To work out where you can fly and get an idea of the cost of each flight, each applicable route (available as two-way travel) has been divided into three zones.

Swipe to explore each zone.

Zone information

Travelling around Australia is easy with flights operated by Qantas, Jetstar and QantasLink. Whether you’ve dreamed of visiting Byron Bay’s iconic beaches or the Red Centre’s rolling dunes, you’ll find every destination placed into one of three zones that help determine its fare.

Routes found in Zone 1 offer the lowest fares for hopping between some of Australia and New Zealand’s most iconic cities, beaches and landscapes. The routes in Zone 2 and Zone 3 cover greater distances to some of our most breathtaking destinations at an increased fare.
