For the first time, Qantas Frequent Flyer members can earn points on their Australian motorhome holiday through a new partnership between Apollo and the national carrier.

With the Covid-19 global pandemic closing international borders and forcing the tourism sector to pivot to the domestic market, Apollo and Qantas Frequent Flyer are rewarding members who choose a road trip holiday.

Apollo CEO Luke Trouchet said the partnership is an exciting new step for Apollo to expand its domestic profile and offer another way for frequent flyers to earn Qantas Points.

‘Travelling in a Motorhome is a great way to experience Australia, and a lot of the time taking a road trip does mean flying to a new destination to pick up your RV’ he said.

‘Qantas enables our guests to get to locations outside of their own cities and experience more of Australia. We are thrilled for Qantas to recognise Apollo as a strong partner with a quality product offering and to be the first RV rental partner in the program’.

Apollo operates 10 locations across Australia, all close to major airports. Prior to Covid-19, Apollo guests were predominately international visitors.

‘Now that domestic borders are opening and flights are increasing, we are seeing a surge in domestic travel as Australian’s are eager to get out and explore more of their own country’.

The partnership means Qantas Frequent Flyer members booking with Apollo or through travel partners are able to earn Qantas Points for each dollar they spend on the rental rate for their road trip holiday. Depending on the time of year bonus point offerings will also be available through special promotions.

‘We know the 13 million Qantas Frequent Flyers value quality service and experiences, so we are happy to offer them the ability to earn points on a road trip with us’ Mr Trouchet said.

‘This strategic partnership is aimed at promoting road trips to a wider audience that may not have considered this type of trip before’.

The partnership launches 26 May 2021 and will be available for all new bookings in Australia.
