5 Reasons You Should Say ‘Why Not’ And Book Your Next Trip

Stop delaying and start travelling.

Brought to you by Qantas Frequent Flyer

You don’t have to wait for your pay to come in before booking your holiday. Why not use your Qantas Points instead? That way you can avoid the wait.

You know that trip you’ve so desperately wanted to go on, but have never actually gotten around to booking? Maybe you’re waiting for the right sale, waiting for a week of uninterrupted sunshine or just waiting for the right time to treat yourself.

The thing is, it doesn’t always pay to be patient, and no matter how long you wait, chances are, there’s never going to be the perfect time. Here’s why you should say, why not? and book those flights.

#1 Avoid FOMO

Sitting at home alone on a Saturday night, scrolling through your Instagram feed while everyone you know is having a blast trekking through Europe or sipping from a coconut on a white sandy beach sucks. The fear of missing out is all too real (especially if you were the one who pulled out last minute).

Instead of falling victim to FOMO, create some for yourself. It’s not too late – book some last-minute flights and join the party. It’s summer somewhere, right?

#2 You deserve it

Whether you’re hitting the books and acing your mid-semester exams or kicking goals left, right and centre at the office, we know you work hard, day after day – so you don’t have to tell us that it’s time to treat yo’self.

We both know you deserve the trip, but don’t stop there — fly in style and maximum comfort by upgrading to Premium Economy. Upgrade with Qantas Points and you can be treated to a private cabin of around 40 seats and your own crew of dedicated and experienced flight attendants. Plus, all the extra space you’ve ever dreamed of.

#3 You have reason to celebrate

Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or another milestone, treating yourself or your loved ones to a trip away is a uniquely special gesture. Some roll around just once in a lifetime, and are the most perfect excuse to book that getaway: not only will you score massive brownie points with whoever you bring along for the trip (hello, boyfriend/girlfriend/daughter/son/parent of the year!), you’ll also get that warm-fuzzy feeling that comes with doing something nice for someone you love.

#4 It’s been on your bucket list for the longest time

All of us dream about those bucket list destinations that we’ve never had the opportunity to visit. Instead of waiting another five years, take five minutes out of your day to nut out some solid plans for finally getting to your dream destination.

Take it from us – you’ll never be let down by somewhere you’ve been dreaming of seeing your whole life. In fact, we’ll promise you it’ll be better than you ever thought possible.

#5 Some things don’t come around all that often

There are some things in life you simply can’t wait around for forever. Whether they happen only once in a blue moon or are forever changing location, it’s important to see as much of the world as you possibly can, while you can.

There are also some events that don’t come around as often as we’d like so, when they do, it’s in your best interests to get amongst it. Whether it’s your favourite team’s first grand final premiership, your favourite sportsman’s first final in years or natural beauties, like Uluru’s Field of Light – don’t let the opportunity pass you by.

With so many ways to earn and use Qantas Points, it’s easy to say ‘why not?’. Find out how to make the most of your points and treat yourself here.
