Also surprised at the lack of rewards seats. Wonder if they’ll pop up later.

Re the Q website. I mucked around and selected book with points, then clicked on show classic rewards only and Jetstar on points popped up :puke:So will probably take my chances and book them, savings will pay for accommodation.

We're spending a week in mid August doing some mix of MethvenHeli-Craigieburn-MtHutt-whatever is open.

Just booked accom and car but it already looks busy. Feels like a ton of pent up demand is ready to explode

Noticed the same when I booked.

Trying to find some more info as to what happens with flight bookings and payments if you test positive on the pre flight test. It all seems a bit murky. Hopefully it’s not an issue by the time I go but it’s good to know the facts before committing.

Does it cover Covid? I didn't think it did.
I believe some insurers are now covering travel disruption due to Covid. I need to check up on mine. For my trip I got travel insurance automatically via the Amex card used to book flights. Underwritten by Chubb I think. I saw somewhere that T&Cs had been updated to include Covid travel interruptions. But need to confirm. Before reading this though I was about to purchase another travel insurance policy that did cover it, can’t remember which outfit though.

Just about to hit the button on Jetstar with QFF points…couldn’t do it.

Booked on Air NZ instead, 7 nights end of July.

Now for accommodation…recommendations? Looking at the Novotel, seems central for dining and bus?

Anything that doesn't involve walking up a hill in QT is a win .

Have stayed at the Novotel a number of times. Always excellent.

Still got all that faffing around with RATs though. Though I did like the post somewhere here earlier, as in you free to provide the result that best meets your circumstances for the later tests.

From my reading .
From 31st July.

You have to have a supervised RAT in Australia. Before departure.
Show immigration in NZ.
Show your vaccination record (Medicare is fine).

Medicare record is fine but needs to be the blue international one

Bang for buck. The 4 star hotels in qt are decent.

Makes Jindabyne look n’ken embarrassing.
I’ve been booking Queenstown and Jindabyne this week. Can confirm there is a big difference. No coincidence I’m staying 8 nights in Queenstown and only a few days in Jindabyne.

The Covid Response Minister has told the Health Select Committee at parliament this morning that the pre-departure test requirements are likely to be scrapped ‘sooner rather than later’.
Thanks for the info, I had booked a trip prior to the full border opening announcement and I am due to arrive in QT around midday on 31/07. I am hoping they will scrap the pre-departure test else I might change my booking, had 2 trip cancelled last year...

Obviously I don’t know the exact timing but I wouldn’t be surprised if it happened quite quickly given where we’re at with Omicron over here.
