Qatar Airways Easy Deals are the airline’s discounted award fares that work along similar lines to Flying Blue’s Promo Awards and which can offer some truly fantastic value if you look carefully.

Back in June travelers could use Qatar Airways Easy Deals to fly Business Class between Europe and Doha for just 21,000 miles and in July you could book 17+ hours in Qatar Airways Qsuites for just 54,250 miles….and now Easy Deals are back!

Thoughts

The key thing to note here is that you have to be logged in to your Qatar Airways Privilege Club account to see these deals – if you’re not logged in you’re likely to see an error which looks like this:

Also, be aware that you can use the Qatar Airways Qcalculator to see how much awards would normally cost (to ensure you’re getting the deal you think you’re getting).

As always, each person’s travel plans and location will dictate which of these deals are the most attractive but the ones that look most tempting to me are the Business Class awards between Europe and Doha combined with a few of the awards available for travel between Doha and various cities in Asia.

Here’s an example of an award I like:

Right now you can book Qatar Airways Business Class for travel between Brussels and Doha for just 29,000 one-way across a multitude of dates…

…and then pair that with another Business Class award between Doha and, for example, Hanoi for a further 33,750 miles.

One-way Business Class between Brussels and Hanoi for a total of just 62,750 miles is pretty good going when you consider the distance being traveled, the quality of the Business Class cabins you’d be flying in and the fact that you could turn this into a two-center trip.

Also, because Qatar Airways bases the cost of its awards on the distance traveled, you can book a shorter trip between Europe and Doha (like Bucharest – Doha) and save yet more miles.

This particular route costs just 21,000 miles one-way or 42,000 miles roundtrip.

With a 50% discount, the one-way fare would cost just 21,000

That’s fantastic value!

Bottom Line

Make sure you read the terms and conditions (below) so you know exactly what’s being offered and make sure you check the normal cost of awards so you know what’s a good deal and what isn’t.

Some of the better deals are for travel between Europe and Doha in this set of Easy Deals (it’s a shame that no US routes have been included this time around) and don’t forget that if you’re fortunate enough to have a healthy balance of Citi ThankYou points these can be transferred over to Qatar Airways Privilege Club in a ratio of 1:1 – that may help get your Qmiles balance high enough to allow you to snap up whatever award you’d like to book.
