APT is the latest operator to announce an alliance with the Qantas Frequent Flyer program, with travellers now able to earn points on every APT booking they make (TD breaking news Sat).
The agreement covers all APT trips, with two points per dollar spent available for APT river cruises, and one point per dollar for all other APT product including classic journeys, 4WD adventures, small group discoveries and small ship cruising itineraries.
The move was unveiled on Sat during a presentation by APT chief commercial officer Debra Fox at the Helloworld Owners and Managers Conference in Adelaide.
However, astute agents would have also spotted the new bonus on APT’s advertising in mainstream newspapers the same day, which for the first time featured the Qantas Frequent Flyer logo and details of the offer.
Points could be earned on APT bookings made in Australian dollars effective 01 May 2018, with APT ceo Steve Reynolds saying “for agents booking APT trips the additional sell point will help secure bookings”.
Points aren’t awarded on airfares bundled with an APT holiday, on cancelled trips or on travel industry discounted rates.
Qantas Points will be credited to the QF frequent flyer member’s account within seven days of the trip departure.
