Qantas Club Membership Guide
Qantas Club members have access to 24 airport lounges in Australia, as well as dozens of overseas lounges when flying with Qantas or Jetstar. Qantas Club lounges offer complimentary food and drinks, wifi, showers, newspapers and work stations, making them a great place to relax and refresh before your flight. Membership also includes benefits such as extra baggage allowance when flying Qantas.

Upon reaching Qantas Gold or Oneworld Sapphire status, frequent flyers can enjoy complimentary access to all Qantas Club lounges. But if you don't quite fly enough to earn Gold status, purchasing a Qantas Club membership will also get you into the lounge.

Most Australian credit cards charge international purchase fees of around 3% - in addition to any margin the bank is making on the exchange rate - which can really add up over time. So, if more...
