Qatar Airways Privilege Club members can now earn and redeem Qmiles at hotels and car rental locations worldwide, following the launch of a new Hotel and Car Rewards programme.

The service has been powered by loyalty technology company Points, and enables members to earn and burn miles at over 20,000 car rental locations and 350,000 hotels, with examples given being the Sharq Village and Spa in Doha, Intercontinental London Park in London and Le Royal Monceau in Paris.

“At Qatar Airways, we are continually striving to enhance Privilege Club and offer our members more value and opportunities to earn and spend Qmiles,” said group CEO Akbar Al Baker.

“We also want to make the experience of earning and spending Qmiles as seamless as when our loyalty members travel with us across the globe. Hotel and Car Rewards provides our members’ convenient ways to spend for hotel stays and car rentals using Qmiles or to use a combination of Qmiles with Cash.”

Qatar Airways recently extended status benefits within its Privilege Club programme as a result of Covid-19, with Silver, Gold and Platinum members whose tiers are due to end this year seeing their status extended until December 31,2021.
