    Qantas has introduced a price guarantee of up to 5 days when agents shop and book using the Qantas Distribution Platform.

    Qantas said this will allow agents to have the confidence that the price of their booking will not change and streamline the ticketing process.

    The new capability, called the ‘Price Guarantee Ticketing Time Limit,’ was introduced following travel agent and technology partner feedback and is part of the airline’s continued investment in the capabilities of its NDC program, the Qantas Distribution Platform.

    Qantas is one of the first airlines globally to offer a price guarantee (including the fare, taxes and surcharges) and is the only carrier in Australia and New Zealand to offer a price guarantee for NDC content.

    The price guarantee is up to five days after the order is created and is subject to change. If an agents’ ticketing time limit is less than five days the price guarantee will be equal to this.

    Price guarantees are an emerging capability for agency bookings and are unique to NDC.

    They can only be accessed on Qantas indirect bookings via the Qantas Distribution Platform.
