    How much does it cost(top)

    Program costs depend on where you live (due to the Australian GST), and if you join the program as an individual or via a corporate membership scheme.

    Your first payment will include a one-time joining feel, and your first annual membership fee (paid for either one or two years).

    To best determine the price of membership, you can use the online quote form which will ask the relevant questions to give you the right price.

    Corporate membership(top)

    Reduced price membership may be available through various professional and industry associations or through membership schemes which can be setup by a collective of individuals.

    Depending on the type of corporate membership, you will either manage your own corporate membership (known as individually managed), or have a central contact for scheme payment and membership enquiries (known as group managed).

    Guest passes(top)

    In addition to the guest quota provided with your membership, you can also purchase an annual guest pass, which allows you to bring one additional member per guest pass into the lounge.

    Prices and information on guest passes are available using the online quote form.

    How do I join(top)

    The easiest way to become a member is to join and pay online.

    For individually managed corporate membership(top)

    If you are joining as a member of an individually managed corporate membership, you will need the relevant Scheme Number to receive their allocated rates.

    Paper form and group managed corporate scheme(top)

    If you want to join the old fashioned way, or you're signing onto a group managed corporate scheme, then you will need to use the paper membership form.

    Your membership card(top)

    Once your membership is accepted, you will receive a Qantas Club membership card. You should keep this with you to access the lounge, specially when travelling domestically.

    If you are already a member of Qantas Frequent Flyer, you can use this card instead of your QFF membership card.

    Please note, your Qantas Club card does not currently display your Oneworld membership status (Ruby) if you are a Silver QFF member. In this case, you may need your Silver card when travelling on International Oneworld partners.

    Where are the lounges(top)

    A full list of lounges for each region can be found below:

    How do I access the lounges?(top)

    To access the lounge, simply enter and hand over your card and boarding pass to the Reception.

    In lounges at major Australian and International ports, you may also find a black bar-code scanner atop the reception counter (similar to what you'll find at a boarding gate).

    If reception staff are busy, you are welcome to scan either the back of your membership card or boarding pass barcode for entry. You can proceed once the light goes green, but be prepared to either flash your card or boarding pass when reception staff look up.

    Access rules(top)

    Qantas provides an easy-to-read access matrix showing which lounge types you can access, when you can access them, and if and how many guests you can take with.

    How do I renew?(top)

    If you've joined as an individual or as part of an individually managed scheme - then renewing your membership is as simple as logging into the Qantas website, then going to the renew Qantas Club pages. You also can renew over the phone by calling the Qantas Club service centre.

    If you're part of a group managed corporate scheme, contact your scheme administrator.
