Help with Qantas taxes

Hi all

I am trying to estimate taxes and other charges for a "free" ticket using the Qantas booking engine. I log in as a frequent flyer and go to the booking engine and it says that my taxes will be estimated on the 2nd page. As I don;t have enough points are present I get an error saying that i need more points. Also the taxes are not listed.

How can I see what the fees and charges for various one way and return itineraries on Qantas if redeeming points for a "free" ticket?

cheers Peter

I always find expedia.com.au accurate for Australia originating itineraries (find the flights you want, click to second screen and it should itemise the taxes).

Use ITA Matrix and look at the taxes/fees/charges. Usually the majority of the cash component is carrier charges and not taxes.

Qantas never advertises an award ticket as a "free" ticket.

If you post your itinerary I'm sure a kind FT person will confirm the amounts for you.
