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 Credit.

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, including their credit or debit card details for payment.
