utu is proud to welcome Qatar Airways Privilege Club, the loyalty programme of the World’s Best Airline, as its latest partner.
As part of the biggest upheaval in the history of tax-free shopping, this new partnership will reward travellers with a significant value addition to their international tax-free shopping experience.
From January 18, 2022 members of Qatar Airways Privilege Club will be able to benefit from a 25% increase in the value of their tax refunds by converting them into Qmiles, making their tax refunds even more rewarding.
utu provides a simple way to boost tax refunds on purchases made abroad and convert them into Qmiles. Travellers can benefit from higher tax refund values simply by entering their utu Tax Free Card number on their tax-free forms, and choosing Qatar Airways Privilege Club from the utu Tax Free app as their preferred refund method.
By leveraging the virtual utu Tax Free Card in the utu Tax Free app, Privilege Club members will now be able to boost their VAT refund value by 25%.
As a special launch offer until March 31, 2022, Privilege Club members will collect 1,000 bonus Qmiles in addition to 4,167 Qmiles for every tax refund transaction above USD 100.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, stated: “Our partnership with utu will allow Privilege Club members the best value out of their trips.
“Starting today, members will not only be able to enjoy tax free shopping at 50 countries and earn Qmiles on their travels, but they can even get more value out of their tax refunds when converted to Qmiles.
“This collaboration is a testament of our dedication towards introducing new ways to earn Qmiles, offering members more unique opportunities to bring them closer to their next reward.”
