Qantas Frequent Flyer members can now earn Qantas Points for booking and catching a taxi through Australia’s favourite taxi booking app goCatch.

Qantas Frequent Flyer members can earn one Qantas Point per dollar spent on taxi fares over $10. In addition, new goCatch customers will be entered into a competition to win a share of 500k Qantas Points when they add their Qantas Frequent Flyer membership details to their goCatch account and book and pay for taxi travel over $10 between 9 October and 9 November 2015.*

Qantas Loyalty Chief Executive Officer Lesley Grant said Frequent Flyer rewards are well within reach for those who maximise their points earn across their everyday spend.

“Today we offer well over 15,000 opportunities to earn points through day-to-day activities and adding goCatch means our members have yet another chance to effortlessly boost their points balance and reach rewards sooner,” said Ms Grant.

“Members can effectively double-dip on points when catching a taxi if they use goCatch to book and pay for taxi fares over $10 on a Qantas Points-earning credit card.

goCatch CEO Ned Moorfield said the partnership with Qantas signalled a significant corporate milestone for goCatch.

At goCatch, we strive to provide fast, reliable and convenient transport solutions for our customers, just like the national carrier, Qantas,” said Mr Moorfield.

“We already know that over 350,000 Australians have downloaded goCatch – so now there’s an even more compelling reason to book and pay through our app for taxi travel.

“This partnership highlights our ongoing commitment to offering the very best products and services by allowing our customers to get where they are going faster and earn Qantas Points at the same time.”
