To ensure you have the vacation of a lifetime, it’s important to do two things when purchasing QVI Points:

  1. Take careful note of the validity period because they vary
  2. Plan and book your holiday within the validity period (your travel dates do not have to be within this period)

QVI Points products validity period differs depending on which one you purchase. For QVI Points Privileged Access, validity ranges from six months to one year from date of activation. For Repeat Purchase, validity is three months from date of activation.

Please note that the validity of your QVI Points bought from the Repeat eStore will be linked to the validity of your QVI Points Privileged Access. For example, if there is 1 month left on your Privileged Access, then even though you have just bought a quantity of Points with a 3-month validity, those Points will expire in 1 month when your Privileged Access expires.

Here is an example to explain QVI Points Validity and Expiry Dates:

If you purchase a 6-month QVI Points Privileged Access Classic on 1 Jun 2012 and activate it immediately, the QVI Points will expire on 1 Dec 2012.

If you then buy QVI Points Repeat Purchase 1 from the eStore on 1 July 2012 and activate it immediately, the validity of those QVI Points will expire in 3 months’ time i.e. on 1 Oct 2012. This is well before 1 Dec 2012, the expiry date of the QVI Points Privileged Access Classic.

However, if you buy and activate QVI Points Repeat Purchase 1 from the eStore on 1 Nov 2012, those QVI Points will only be valid until1 Dec 2012, which is the expiry date of the QVI Points Privileged Access, even though generally QVI Points Repeat Purchase may have a 3-month validity.

Since extensions of QVI Points products are not allowed, be sure to make your holiday bookings within the validity period of your QVI Points product. Please note that your travel dates do not have to be within the validity periods, just the date of your bookings must be.
