Business as Usual for the Qantas Carer Concession Card
For Qantas domestic travel within Australia, customers who require a carer to travel are eligible for a reduced fare for both themselves and their carer, provided that the customer holds:
- a current Carer Concession photographic identification card issued by People with Disability Australia Incorporated (PWDA),
- a current Carer Concession photographic identification card issued by the National Information Communication Awareness Network (NICAN.),
- a current Centrelink Pensioner Concession Card with blind entitlement; or
- a current travel pass for Person with Vision Impairment issued by a state or territory authority.
The Qantas Carer Concession Card was previously administered by NICAN, who ceased operation in July, 2015. All current cards issued by NICAN will be honoured until they expire. Holders of expired NICAN issued Carer Concession Cards wishing to renew can do so with PWDA.
Details regarding Carer Concession Card applications and renewals can be found on the PWDA website or by phoning PWDA on 1800 806 769.
