11am – First look at the Qatar Airways sale deals

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

The Qatar Airways January sale, called ‘Global Travel Boutique’ this year, is now livesee here for the UK site.

On the face of it, Business Class discounts appear to be lower than we have seen in previous years, but we need to see what is teased out over the course of the day.  I will update this article as I see interesting deals posted or I dig up anything myself.

Please note the bookings dates – most of June, all of July, August and early September are excluded.

  • Sale period: 9 until 16 January 2018.
  • Travel period:  9 January until 10 December 2018. All travel must be completed by 10 December 2018.
  • Blackout dates: 9 June until 10 September 2018.

From the UK, promo code UKGTBAFFILIATE gets you an extra 5% off the base fare.  Outside the UK, try code PCGTBGIFT for a further ‘up to’ 5% off the base fare.

Qatar Airways is also offering DOUBLE Qmiles if you credit your flight to Qatar Privilege Club click here for details and to register.  In most cases, however, you will want to credit to British Airways Executive Club because of the 560 tier points available for a return flight to Asia from Europe.

  1. OT but with the Etihad “devaluation” arriving on 15th January, has anyone a clue about where the numbers might post shake up ?

    I can book now but can’t really confirm dates and you cannot change Etihad redemptions, no matter what they say as the costs end up too high. But if the points shift against me (LHR-AUH-BKK) then I won’t have enough points to reach the 75% cash and points threshold.
