Using your Queensland Seniors Card interstate and in New Zealand
Each Australian state and territory has their own Seniors Card scheme and some reciprocal arrangements are in place for using your Queensland Seniors Card in other states.
Businesses in one state will generally recognise cards from another, however, it is best to ask the business if it provides a discount for interstate Seniors Card, Seniors +go and Seniors Business Discount Card holders before making a purchase.
To find out more about participating businesses and available discounts in other states, you will need to contact the relevant interstate Seniors Card office.
A reciprocal agreement between the Queensland and New Zealand governments gives Queensland Seniors Card, Seniors Card +go and Seniors Business Discount Card holders access to discounts and special offers on goods and services from businesses participating in the New Zealand SuperGold Card program. Access to government concessions is not included.
Search the SuperGold online discount directory or look for the “SuperGold Cards Welcome” stickers when travelling in New Zealand, and ask the salesperson if they also accept the Queensland Seniors Card, Seniors +go or Seniors Business Discount Card. If a business does not offer discounts for Australian seniors, this will be noted on their website under ‘exclusions’.
Visiting Queensland from interstate and overseas
If you hold a New Zealand SuperGold Card or a Seniors Card issued by another Australian state or territory and are travelling to Queensland, you can search the online discount directory to find businesses offering discounts to visiting interstate and overseas cardholders.
