When you take out a Qantas Life Insurance policy, you’ll be given the option to choose between stepped and level premiums. Stepped premiums usually start out cheaper but will usually increase each year as you age, while level premiums cost more to start with but generally don’t increase each year. If you choose level premiums, your policy will automatically revert to stepped premiums at the policy anniversary after your 64th birthday.
There are also several factors that can impact upon the cost of your premium, including:
Premiums can be paid by direct debit or credit card (Mastercard, Visa or AMEX) either:
If you need to make a claim on your Qantas Life Insurance policy, you’ll need to phone 13 49 60 from Monday to Friday, 8:30am to 5:30pm (AEST). You’ll then be assigned a claims manager who will oversee your claim from start to finish, advise you of the next steps, and answer any questions you may have.
To reduce hassle, many details of your claim can be provided over the phone. However, your claims manager will let you know what documentation will be needed to support your claim, such as medical reports, a death certificate or a statement from your doctor.
If you take out optional 'Inflation Protection' then your Qantas Life Insurance policy is indexed to provide protection against inflation. The indexation rate is 5% or the Consumer Price Index (CPI), whichever is greater, for Life, TPD and Trauma Insurance. If you have Income Protection Insurance, the indexation rate is the greater of 3% or the CPI.
The other change you may need to be aware of is that if you hold a Life, TPD or Trauma Insurance policy with level premiums, these will revert to stepped premiums at the policy anniversary after you turn 64.
It’s important to be aware of when your Qantas Life Insurance policy won’t provide any cover, but the general exclusions vary depending on the type of insurance you have. With this in mind, it’s essential that you read the PDS closely to learn what is and isn’t covered and decide whether a policy is right for you.
Under Qantas Life Insurance, no cover is available if your claim arises because you visit a country for which the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has issued a “Do Not Travel” warning.
In addition, other exclusions may apply based on the covers you select as part of your policy. For example, if you select Accident Cover and Illness Cover but no Adventure Sports Cover, no claim will be paid if:
A number of other exclusions also apply, so check the PDS for full details.
*General conditions you should consider. A minimum monthly premium of $25 is required to earn points when you sign on and you'll also need to hold a policy for at least 9 months to receive the maximum amount of points for how much you pay in premiums. In order to earn 100,000 points a minimum monthly premium of $300 is required (and the policy must be held for 9 months). Be sure to check the full terms and conditions when you apply.

finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature.

We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.

We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
