Qatar Airways Treasure Hunt - Find The Golden Ticket (Example: Adelaide / Melbourne <-> Pisa under $700)Affiliate

Look for flights to and from your Australian city to the following destination in months listed:

DXB - Feb, March, April, May, Jun
BHX - Feb, Apr, May (but saw dates in early Jul)
PSA - Feb, Mar, Jun (but saw dates in early Jul)
EVN - May
TBS - Apr, May
DUB - Jul

From this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ogRfX7JMYoA

"What is a golden ticket? A golden ticket is a single, zero-fare ticket to a specific destination, valid for travel between 11 January and 15 December 2017. Only taxes and surcharges apply."

See this page for more information: http://www.qatarairways.com/au/en/offers/travel-festival-tre...

I just booked Adelaide to Pisa (Italy) return for under $700pp (2 people). Amazing.

There are some golden tickets in both directions if you can find them. Happy hunting, share your finds in the comments below. Today only (for flights out of Australia) by the looks of the promo page.

You can't stack with existing coupon codes, if you put that in the search field it stops the golden tickets appearing.

Examples:

Melbourne <> Pisa - May 30th, returning July 4th - 679.54 AUD (per person)
Melbourne <> Dubai - May 16th, returning late May (various dates) - 173.84 AUD (1 ticket only on first leg)
Adelaide <> Pisa - May 30th, returning July 2nd - 686.97 AUD (per person)

Looking like this may be end of life, so expiring it. I note that Adelaide is one of the destinations in some of the later in the week promo's so might still be possible to book something then.

    I know some one here is smart enough to create an algorithm to find this treasure

  • +5 votes

    If you go to their flights page and search for the destinations in the video from Australia.

    Choose the month which they tell you in the video in the top left.

    Then once you do the search click on "More Dates".

    It then shows you a calendar screen with 15 days worth on there with the cheapest pricing. Quite easy to find the golden tickets this way. They all seem to be one way though.

    Eg. In May 13-27 going from Tbilisi to Adelaide is $78 (however in the same promotion period the way there is around 770). So basically one way is free. Really good deal!

      It's funny as Italy is listed under:

      Friday
      13 January 2017 Late morning
      Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom.

      So really you could find a ticket anywhere.

        Pisa was one of the listed airports in the video though.

      • +3 votes

        I could be wrong, but I think that means that those traveling/booking from Italy can participate on that day? Appears they have staggered worldwide release to try and keep things smooth?

        •  

          Yes l agree, that's the way l see it

        •  

          Wonder if a VPN for a participating country would work. Guessing probably not, more about departure cities.

          EDIT: Just tried China VPN and that didn't work.

  •  

    so you have to get them return?

    • +1 vote

      Not if you find a golden ticket on the way there, from my searching vast majority are the return leg that are the discount rate.

  •  

    How often do they have this sale/game? I had $178 return from ADL - TBS but wouldn't let me pay

  •  

    p.s. in the T&C's how much is it to move the date? I haven't checked…

  •  

    Is there anything to south america?

  • +7 votes

    MEL to DXB return for $173 if anyone wants it.

    Depart 16 May, with lots of return dates

  •  

    it alson works from the 27th May to the 4th July, incase you want to go on a longer trip

    has anyone seen anything from Sydney?? cause I have not :(

    There are some golden tickets in both directions if you can find them

    THIS would be GOLD (literally, twice). I would book any destination for around $120 return on a premium airline

    • -3 votes

      Not so sure l would call them Premium we flew them last year Melbourne to Paris CDG 4 hours delayed leaving Melbourne missed connection flight, 2 out of 4 suitcases were damaged to the point they were not repairable problems claiming, and they were not cheap suit cases on that.

      Probably having a sale because of ongoing problems, l wouldn't fly them again, if l were paid to do so.

      •  

        thought they were ok

        suitcases mustve been thrown. that sucks, can happen with a lot of airlines (especially US). claims via travel insurance possible?

        hear the cabin (A350) is spacious even economy. ive flown etihad and it was acceptable. and qatar ranks higher? i mean, for around 700 return to europe. that would be a new record.

        what was the food like? edible?

        ive known emirates to even wait on the tarmac for 4 hours with no info. and they're supposedly premium. i think arab airlines dont really give a shit about cattle customers. i'm sure the rich kids had plenty of champagne in the lounge.

  •  

    Anyone find any flights return to dublin i checked all of june and july ?

  •  

    Plenty of PSA - MEL in May and August for $117.70 but nothing outbound to hook up with it that I've found….yet. :D

  •  

    Dates for MEL/PSA?

    •  

      See OP, return July 2nd/3rd/4th or carlenet mentions above there are some dates in May/August, then find an outbound to match.

      •  

        Yeah coming up as $2000 two people. Which dates did you book?

        •  

          Just double checked and still shows this for me:

          Melbourne <> Pisa - May 30th, returning July 4th - 679.54 AUD (per person)

          $1359.08 for two. $1,235.28 there, $123.80 back.

          Make sure you don't have any coupon codes in your search filter.

          I booked from Adelaide.

        •  

          @Bullion Baron: Thank you. Have purchased tickets, worked out to be around $2000 for two.
          Just wanted to ask there is a comment above about more deals on Sunday. Would these apply? I had a look at a video and Adelaide is a destination. I'm thinking would it be possible to book a ticket FROM Adelaide to a destination and return to Australia?

    Perth is feeling unloved again!

    There's nothing for SYD to any of those destinations, just searched all except EVN since I have no intention to go near a war zone.

    •  

      hahahahah, i like the logic you used there

    • +2 votes

      If you fly Qatar Airways to Europe you'll be flying over Iran, near Armenia, before turning left and flying over Turkey. It's becoming difficult to avoid troubled countries if you're flying to anywhere in Europe.

      I flew to Kiev, Ukraine in September. Sometimes you just need to go.

    •  

      Smart traveller says most of Armenia is still good. But they haven't updated since the last skirmishes in the past week. http://smartraveller.gov.au/Countries/europe/eastern/Pages/a...

      •  

        It's all good, I've read about Armenia don't think I'll enjoy travelling there. Just telling others it's the only location I haven't searched for cheap flights from SYD, if anyone else is looking.

        •  

          It is one of the most beautiful and historic places in the world. Extremely safe and with a cafe culture better than Europe in the middle of Summer.

      •  

        The skirmishes are not in Armenia. They are on the border of Azerbaijan and Karabagh, well away from Yerevan.

  •  

    where d F are u golden tix from sydney!!!!!!!!

    saw 139 flight from psa to melb for next month

  •  

    ADL-BHX, $870 return 1 May to 15 May. A screaming bargain to get to Europe.

  •  

    So I can find normal price to Dubai, but with a Golden ticket on the way back. Though if I book 1 way from DXB-MEL it is the normal fare price. Its my understanding though that on Sunday once the UAE fares become available, we may potentially get DXB-MEL one way for Golden Ticket prices, if that makes sense.

    Just a heads up, we recently did a return trip to Europe and had a number of issues regarding the flights which I will not go into. Just to say their customer service is non existant regarding problems that needed a reply from them. Their email feedback is non effective and they will not reply to email messages .. I sent two over a 5 week period and they just ignore them. Ours were in regard to business flights booked through an agent!, so make sure your bookings on the net are exactly what you want. Do not expect assistance if your bookings go pear shaped, you could contact an agent to price match the price online. We did just that. The planes we were on were very new, as is their main airport Hamad International. A stop in Doha is worthwhile, and the Islamic Museum is stunning and well worth a visit.

  • +2 votes

    None from BNE to PSA/BHX/DXB… searched the whole year.

    Also their plane going over from DOH-PSA is an A319/320. Interesting… the flight is just under 7 hours, but it looks like the pitch is decent (32").

  •  

    I do not care for rat races.

  •  

    Hey guys and girls. I am trying to find Melbourne - PISA but those dates don't work anymore. Has anyone found any other dates for PISA?

  •  

    Doesn't seem to work, maybe expired?

    •  

      I crossed out the examples I found in the OP. It may be that all the golden tickets have been sold or just fewer of them left to find.

  •  

    ozbargained

  •  

    couldn't find anything to anywhere

  •  

    Looks like this may be end of life, so expiring it. I note that Adelaide is one of the destinations in some of the later in the week promo's (from other countries) so might be possible to book something then (but perhaps not for the other Australian capitals).

  •  

    Check outside the dates that OP posted, there is golden tickets throughout the year

  •  

    misinterpreted this whole deal. thought there would be more coming later in the week.

  •  

    Qatar to Adelaide deals on Sunday which could potentially give us DOH-ADL one way on a golden ticket.

    • +1 vote

      Adelaide is also a destination also from:

      Thursday
      12 January 2017 Early afternoon Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey.

      Friday
      13 January 2017 Late morning
      Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom.

      I don't know whether it will be possible to book these return from Adelaide, but worth a look!

  •  

    Ah damn, missed on this one, would be amazing to see family based in Qatar :(

  •  

    Does anyone know if you can still get adelaide to europe flights?

  •  

    anyone having any luck with the qatar flights?

  •  

    Rescheduled. Stay tuned for more updates.

    for eastern europe. damn.

  •  

    Looking for flights to any Eastern European/Eurasia countries in APR/MAY. Is there anything left?

    •  

      as above. delayed.

      i just noticed if i use AU - english and book from eu->au, it's really expensive. change location and it's normal price. so check that if you're getting outrageous fares.

  •  

    Thursday
    12 January 2017 Rescheduled Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Croatia, Georgia, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Turkey.
    Was excited for a moment. Qatar site is slow at the moment. See when this goes live :)
