Win two tickets to (just about) anywhere with Qatar Airways and Head for Points

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

For the next couple of weeks – until 4th June – we are running a great competition in association with Qatar Airways.

One lucky Head for Points reader will win two Economy Class tickets to their choice of Qatar Airways destination!

Whilst the tickets are Economy Class, your booking will be flagged for an upgrade to Business Class subject to availability at check-in.  The upgrade will be at the discretion of the check-in staff and so, for simplicity, we are describing the prize as two Economy Class tickets.  Hopefully, though, you will end up in something better.

A lot has been happening with Qatar Airways lately and there seems no end to it:

Qatar Airways is a member of the oneworld alliance.  This means that you will earn Avios points and British Airways tier points when you fly with Qatar Airways, and can also redeem Avios points for Qatar Airways services.  (Don’t forget that Qatar Airways also has its own loyalty programme, QMiles.)

We have reviewed Qatar Airways business class on its 777, 787 and A380 incarnations, as well as A380 First Class, and genuinely believe that it deserves its reputation as one of the very best products out there.  The new Qsuite in Business Class. launching very soon, will set the bar even higher.

Qatar 350


There is one pair of Economy return tickets on Qatar Airways to (pretty much) anywhere to be won with a possible / hopeful upgrade to Business Class on the day.

There are some restrictions on how and where you can go:

Your trip must start and finish in the UK (London, Birmingham, Manchester or Edinburgh). Connecting flights are not included.

You cannot backtrack from Doha. This means that North American destinations, for example, are excluded.  The decision of Qatar Airways on what it considers backtracking will be final.

You can only book flights operated by Qatar Airways.  Codeshares are not included.

Tickets are strictly non-transferrable. The winner MUST be one of the passengers and both tickets must be booked for travel together.

The winner must book the trip by 20th March 2018 and complete their travel within three months of booking.

There is no guarantee that Qatar Airways will be able to offer the exact date, flight and destination you request. Flexibility may be required, especially at peak periods.

The tickets are Economy tickets with possible upgrade to Business Class at the check-in desk, subject to availability.  This upgrade is not guaranteed and will be at the discretion of the check-in agents.  Travelling at off-peak periods will maximise your chances of being upgraded.

You are responsible for arranging transfers, accommodation, visas, innoculations, insurance etc for your trip

You will not have to pay any taxes or charges for your tickets

Your tickets will not earn any frequent flyer miles or status points

The full list of rules are in the Gleam widget.

The competition will remain open until 4th June.

    Hi Anika

    Just got an email from O2 with the exact same prize.

    I assume this is not the same competition


  2. I cannot see any mention of if the prize is 2 x one-way or return flights?
    “…tickets to their choice of Qatar Airways destination” implies one way only, which would take the shine off it.
    But “trip must start and finish in the UK” implies return flights.

    Clarification, please?

  3. I need a room for 2 Nights in belfast on the 16th and 17th June ,
    Are there any Deals out there that I could use ?

    • Look at our Hotel Promos page and have a look at the deal on there, either for points earned back or discount codes. The Hilton public sector deal is always a good one if you are paid by the Government.

  4. I get an error message “sorry this promotion is not available in your region”

      me too but in recommendation on previous posts using the same gleam (UK only) app, I installed tunnerbear on my mobile and it let me enter….

  5. Just got a letter in the post saying Supercard by Travelex service is ending in July

    Hi Rob

    When I tired to enter it states that I need to further log in with Social Media. I am a dinosaur with no FB or other SM accounts. Seems I cannot enter this completion without one of these. 🙁

    Hi Rob

    When I tried to enter, it stated that I needed to log in further with a Social Media account. As I am indeed a dinosaur, I have no Facebook or any other SM accounts. Seems I cannot enter without one of these. 🙁

    • Try again with a different email – or via InPrivate Browsing in case any existing cookies are conflicting.

  8. George Mitchell says:

    Although I’m great at duplicating messages 🙂

    • Normally happens when you’ve signed in to the Gleam app with a SM a/c prev – easiest solution seems to be to use a fresh email address…

      • George Mitchell says:

        Hi Alan

        Never signed into Gleam app before and as I mentioned, I’ve never had a SM account. Will give it a try with my wife’s email address later.

  9. Peter Taysum says:

    Nothing on the very small, hardly noticed “slight problem” BA have had today? I’m surprised Alex Cruz isn’t stating customer’s have asked for this…
