FREE TO READ:INFO: Discount flights!!!

January 7, 2016

PWDA (People With Disability Australia) are now administering the Qantas Carer Concession card (it used to done by NICAN but they were defunded) so you can now get a renewal or apply for the first time if you haven’t already. http://www.pwd.org.au/what-we-do/qantascarerconcession.html

The card is a little more expensive than it used to be ($50 for 3 years) but it is available again!

The card effectively gives a person (or child) with disability (who *needs* assistance *while* actually on the plane) AND their Carer 30% each off *any* domestic Qantas flight – including all sale fares – (or 50% if you fly business class).

You have to book any tickets via Qantas on the phone – do read the link to learn the fine detail. If you have a Companion Card, just attach a copy of it to your application for guaranteed approval.

This does NOT include any discount for international flights. When you book, check the fares online first and make sure they do NOT charge any phone booking fees as you can’t book online. If your operator questions this, or whether it applies to discount fares, just ask them to check with a supervisor and all should be solved! Happy and safe travels!
