We are very excited to announce a brilliant prize competition courtesy of our friends at Qatar Airways.  It is, depending on where the winner wants to go, potentially the biggest flight giveaway we have ever done.

You could win two Business Class tickets from any UK Qatar Airways airport (London Heathrow, London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and Cardiff) to almost any destination on the Qatar Airways network*

Given that Qatar Airways has an extensive network of destinations, this means Bangkok, Tokyo, the Maldives or even Sydney could be on the agenda if you win this fabulous prize.

About Qatar Airways

We’ve always enjoyed travelling with Qatar Airways due to its excellent in-flight experience, but you don’t need to take our word for it!  Your fellow HFP readers voted Qsuite as the ‘Best Business Class Seat and Service” in the Head for Points 2019 Travel & Loyalty Awards (a picture from our winner’s dinner is below).

Qsuite, with its acclaimed design and fully closing door, has become a real game-changer.  You can find out more about Qsuite on the Qatar Airways website here.

Qatar 2 HFP Awards 2019

Rob wrote an extensive review of Qsuite back in October (read it here) and we’ve also covered the herringbone business class seat found on Boeing 787-8, A380 and part of the A350 fleet.

Qatar Airways flies to over 160 destinations so the network is very extensive.  If you win our competition you will be spoilt for choice.  There are several interesting new routes starting in 2020 including Siem Reap (Cambodia), Osaka (Japan) and top of my own list, Cebu (the Philippines).

You’d think that all of these accolades could come with sky high prices.  However, there are excellent deals to be found with Qatar Airways, particularly for anyone willing to start outside the UK.  Rhys wrote about Qatar Airways’ low Business Class fares from Oslo a few weeks ago and these are typical of what is out there if you are willing to dig around.

You can visit the Qatar Airways website to find out the latest offers and destinations.

Good luck.

    Thank goodness it’s still open when we get back from Asia…hate not to be able to enter this one!

      • The Original David says:

        Plenty of cheap VPNs on the market, an essential piece of kit for the frequent traveller, I’d say!

        • TripRep says:

          Yep, don’t travel without one.

          Vital for security on airport/lounge/hotel WiFi etc

          • RussellH says:

            The only VPN I have tried is the free version of Tunnel Bear, which is often worse than nothing as a lot of sites refuse to connect via it
            Hilton (and anything else using one of the wretched picture captchas to log in) and the old SPG site particularly come to miond, but the have been others.
            And it did not help my partner check her National Lottery ‘winnings’ [the site is only accesible from the UK] from France, Belgium or the Netherlands.
            Maybe paid ones work better, but are they really worth it?

          • Doug M says:

            Any site or host worthy of anything should be using encryption. When you use a https:// site the data is encrypted from your browser to the site. When you use a VPN, you’re adding the potential that they’re monitoring all the sites you visit, and you could argue that’s less secure than not using one, as you’re adding an additional layer to the the route. VPNs have their place, but regardless of whether it’s a coffee shop, airport lounge or wherever, you should not be using non secure sites and protocols.
            The number of people that use repeat passwords, or slight variations of, and then use these on non secure sites is a problem, but the better workaround for this is decent password management, not a VPN.

    Frustrating not to be able to enter as I am travelling in South Africa and the competition is not available in my jurisdiction.

    • Eli says:

      Team viewer to a UK computer should sort that problem out.

      Can’t a Friend in the UK enter for you?

  • Michael C says:

    Rob, is it true we’re allowed to dump 6-yr olds at the HFP office for a few days while the two of us enjoying our winning flights?! ;o)

  • Sam G says:

    Just done the outbound of an Ex-EU with Qatar from Gothenburg – we weren’t the only Brits so hi to anyone who flew out on Monday morning! We stayed overnight prior at the airport hotel which was cute and definitely a less stressful way to do it.

    Possibly controversially we weren’t big fans of the QSuite on our Asia leg, it was a full flight and the crew really struggled to get the service done quickly (which is always desirable on an overnight) – it seemed not being able to see us easily really interrupted a “natural” service flow + it was incredibly hot. Though I’ve since read that the window seats have air vents, so we’ll take two of those for our return instead and eat in the new Singapore lounge prior to the flight

    But it was fantastic value for money and we’ll definitely be doing it yearly to lock in our BA silver !

    • The Savage Squirrel says:

      Any advice re: room requests or menu at the hotel? Staying in a couple of weeks time.

  • Rob says:

    Great competition although disappointed by the restrictions. Competition closes 29th Feb.
    Must be used by end of June. The whole of May is blacked out, a big chunk of April is too.
    Don’t get me wrong I want to win but it’s surprisingly restrictive!

    • Bs says:


    • TimS says:

      I thought the same.

      As the winner won’t be announced until March 1 at the earliest, and there are only 4 weeks to book it, and 11 weeks (including the 4 week booking window) in which to COMPLETE the trip, it isn’t as good as first appears unfortunately.

      Also, almost three entire continents are excluded from the choice of destinations, which rules out over half of Qatar’s available destinations (though admittedly not close to half of their flights).

      It is still a generous prize, but not as generous as it initially appears.

      • Rob says:

        No-one is going to to the US, Canada or Europe via Doha so South America is the only real loss.

        • Lady London says:

          You know what ? On QR I wouldn’t necessarily ‘not’ go to the US via Doha if the price was right.
          Capetown via Doha geographically more sensible, of course !

    • DV says:

      Never look a gift horse in the mouth!

  • Aron says:

    Looks like I’ll be going away on my own since my partner is a teacher and the holidays are blacked out (smh).

  • Alastair says:

    Not yet 7am and already more than 1,000 entries plus 1, so 2,000 .

    • MattB says:

      I would imagine most will enter in own and partner’s name so will get far more entries than readers, then extra when it hits freebie/competition sites.

      • ankomonkey says:

        I bet some people enter using their cat’s name for an extra entry. The same real or not-real cat they used for Tesco pet insurance…

  • Elspeth Gibson says:

    Looking forward to choosing from the wonderful range of Qatar flights as part of this competition
