Do quarantine packages earn points?

Do quarantine packages such as in Qatar earn points? The package would be booked through a government website. e.g https://www.qatarairwaysholidays.com...oking/overview

This may depend on the property. My experience with ASQ in Bangkok was yes, we got points. In Thailand there is a government(?) website that lists quarantine hotels and you link through that to book with the hotel via email directly with the hotel.

I think it may be hotel specific. I've gotten points on two quarantine stays, both booked thru government required websites.

Thank you. I don't suppose anyone would have specific experience of hotels in Qatar?

It really comes down to whether youre booking directly with the hotel or through a third party.

In Thailand you can still book through a third party - eg Agoda - and you will not get points / elite benefits. You can book quarantine packages directly with the hotel and you will get points and benefits.

The booking will be made through QatarAirwaysHolidays.com website.

I can confirm my experience. I asked hotel reception to add my HH number in case anything is possible. I received no points but did get two nights credited.

Did you get points for the whole package (which includes the PCR test, airport transfer, etc), or just for the underlying room rate?

According to the booking email from the hotel, only the room and meals portion would earn points, but when I checked my Hilton account it looked like the entire package earned points, maybe I lucked out that time.

Yeah, sounds like you did. I only got points for the underlying room rate. I might write and ask, as the package details seemed to indicate that I would get points.
