Qantas Frequent Flyer and Australia’s innovative taxi booking application, ingogo, have today announced a partnership that will allow Frequent Flyer members to earn one Qantas Point per dollar spent on taxis booked through the ingogo app.

To start earning, Qantas Frequent Flyer members simply need to save their membership number into the ingogo app.

Users can book their taxi ride up to 48 hours in advance, which will benefit those travelling to and from the airport in particular, enabling them to skip airport queues or have to flag a last-minute cab on the day.

Furthermore, users can better budget the trip, with ingogo’s Australian-first Fixed Fares system letting them know exactly how much they’ll pay for the journey before even getting into the taxi.

“Qantas has 11.5 million Frequent Flyer members,” said Hamish Petrie, ingogo founder and CEO (pictured above).

“In other words, around half the Australian population can now start earning Qantas Points simply by using the ingogo app and taxis to get around.

“While they can earn Qantas Points on any ingogo journey, catching a taxi to the airport and back is an integral part of the travelling experience for many Qantas Frequent Flyers, so it makes sense to be earning them on that part of the trip too.”

The Qantas Frequent Flyer partnership will also be integrated into ingogo’s business solution that enables corporates to save up to 20 per cent on employee taxi travel, along with streamlined expense management processing.

Qantas Loyalty CEO Lesley Grant added, “Whether it’s on the ground or inflight, we’re always looking at giving our members more opportunities to be rewarded.

“Qantas Frequent Flyers already have lots of ways to earn points through their everyday spend, as well as when they’re on holiday or a business trip. Using the ingogo app and benefitting from its Fixed Fare feature, our members will know exactly how many they’ll be earning before they’ve even begun their journey.”

Qantas Frequent Flyers can use the ingogo app on their iPhone and Android devices.

To celebrate the partnership, members will earn 250 Qantas Points on each of their first three ingogo trips taken before 31 March 2017.
