Qantas customers can 'fly now, pay later' with a new payment option.
Announced earlier this week, customers can book domestic and international flights through the airline's website using buy now, pay later provider Zip and earn Qantas Points.
Frequent Flyers will also be able to choose to earn Qantas Points through Zip's loyalty program, Zip Rewards, when making some everyday purchases.
Specifically, frequent flyers can earn:
- 3000 points when they sign up and link their Zip account and complete their first transaction
- 500 points each time they reach their Zip Rewards goal
- 1 point for every $3 spent on eligible flights on qantas.com with Zip
Qantas Loyalty CEO Olivia Wirth said this is the first time the airline has partnered with a buy now, pay later provider to offer the payment option for flight bookings.
"The option to buy now, pay later through Zip gives our customers more choice in how they pay for their flights. With Zip they can spread the cost over time choosing flexible repayments, and also earn Qantas Points on the payment as well as the flight itself," she said.
Zip ANZ Managing Director, Cynthia Scott said the company is giving customers the option to pay for their trip before they go, or when they get back.
"Our research shows that Buy Now, Pay Later users are more likely to travel in the next 12 months compared to non-users," she said.
"This means our alliance with Qantas is incredible news for our 3.1 million customers. In fact, more than 75 per cent of Zip customers intend on travelling in the next 12 months."
