These are all the extra ways your travels can help you start to build your Qantas Points balance now.

Make the most of your trip to a new place by going past the city limits. In Sydney? A day-trip to the hazy Blue Mountains is a must. Visiting Perth? You can’t leave without zipping down to Margaret River to sip a few local drops (with a designated driver, of course). And no jaunt across the Tasman to Queenstown is complete without a scenic detour through the rolling hills, snow-dusted peaks and glorious natural wonders nearby. Hiring a vehicle to get to all of these fascinating places means you can make as many stops for snacks and photos as you need.
Qantas Car Hire: Earn 4 points per $1 spent with Avis and receive a Double Upgrade in Australia when you book between 22 and 30 July for travel until 18 December; or earn 700 points for rentals in New Zealand and receive a Double Upgrade when you book between 22 and 30 July for travel until 15 September.
