Everyone knows the best rewards are the ones you get by doing the things you love, right? Well here’s something for those of you with a bit of wanderlust.

When you book a stay at one of over 200,000 hotels worldwide with Qantas Hotels, you'll get rewarded with Qantas Points for every dollar you spend. 

If you’re not familiar with Qantas Hotels, don't fear. It’s a hotels booking platform with the added benefit of earning coveted Qantas Points on your bookings. What's more, they even have a price match guarantee so you won't have to worry about paying more for your stay*.

Here’s the deal: you’ll earn three Qantas Points per A$1 spent on the site. Those points can then be put towards your next stay, so you’ll be paying less, which means you can go away sooner**. Earning those extra points is also a super compelling reason to plan your next getaway, right? Sounds pretty peachy to us.

Below we’ve selected four very appealing accommodation options you could go on with Qantas Hotels.

Spend winter in the Hunter Valley and spring in Provence

A really good win-win situation is hard to come by for those looking to relax and spend quality time with your loved ones. Don’t fret though, we’ve got it sorted it for all you lovebirds. Book yourself in for a cosy winter escape at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley in New South Wales’ famous wine region, and you could be adding to the Qantas Points needed to stay at the incredible Renaissance Aix-en-Provence Hotel in the south of France. Think about it, while you’re sipping on a bold Shiraz and cosying up by the fire, you could be gearing up to see Provence's beautiful spring lavender fields and enjoying a lovely light rosé while you do it.

Spend winter in Cradle Mountain and spring in Canberra

Cradle Mountain is unmissable in winter – snow covers jagged-edged mountain tops and forests full of pines reflect in lakes making Tassie look straight out of a fairy tale. Earn Qantas Points while you sleep at the secluded Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge which you can put towards your next getaway in spring. Why not head to Canberra when the flowers begin to bloom? Come in September and you’ll be arriving just as the annual Floriade Festival begins. This ultra-colourful floral showcase is the country’s biggest celebration of spring and it’s truly a sight to see. Top off your Canberra stay with a couple nights at the Hyatt Hotel Canberra, which has you perfectly placed to enjoy all the Floriade fanfare.

Spend winter in Queenstown and spring in Port Douglas

Jump over the pond to Queenstown for some spectacular sightseeing (the mountains! The lakes! The views!) and, naturally, some top-notch ski action. Snow-seekers of all ages will enjoy all that the Remarkables ski area has to offer and can rest easy (and comfily) at the cool QT Queenstown hotel in town. You can use your Qantas Points towards a spring stay to properly defrost at the Pullman Port Douglas Sea Temple Resort and Spa which sits right where the reef and the rainforest meet in Port Douglas. Have a dip in the plunge pool, order a Mojito and spend several lazy days contemplating the existence of paradise.

Spend winter at Lake Louise and spring in Dubai

There’s a reason thousands of people have Lake Louise as their computer background. It’s a place so beautiful you find yourself gobsmacked that it actually exists in real life. If you’re headed to the Canadian Rockies, winter is the prime time for some true ice magic (not the sugary sweet chocolate stuff). Stay overnight at the extravagant Fairmont Lake Louise where you'll witness Lake Louise in all her frozen glory and even go on a sleigh ride like the true Christmas king that you are. While you’re sleeping you’ll earn Qantas Points for your next holiday – maybe a stay at Fairmont the Palm in Dubai? Spring is the perfect time to visit Dubai as the weather isn’t sweltering, meaning you’ll be able to experience all that this exceptional city has to offer, including the hotel’s epic infinity pool.
