Qantas Car Insurance launches with 20,000 bonus points offer
Customers can also earn Qantas Points for paying premiums and additional points for safety checks.
Qantas Car Insurance launched today and will give frequent flyers the ability to earn points on premiums in addition to conducting safety checks through the Qantas Wellbeing App.
For a limited time, frequent flyers can also score up to 20,000 bonus Qantas Points when you sign up for Qantas Car Insurance. That's almost enough points to fly from Brisbane to Singapore or from Sydney to Bali in economy.
20,000 is the maximum number of sign-on Qantas Points that can be earned on annual premiums of $2,000 or more. The bonus points will be awarded after the policy has been held for 60 days and the offer ends 20 December 2019.
You'll also earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 spent on premiums plus up to 6,000 Qantas Points by completing safety tasks as well as weekly step and sleep challenges through the Qantas Wellbeing App. The safety tasks include checking your tyre pressure and entering it into the app, answering questions about your brakes and booking services. Any answers to these questions will not impact a member's policy or premium.
You can also earn 1 Qantas Point per dollar spent on Qantas's Roadside Assistance membership.
Qantas is currently offering three different types of car insurance cover, including comprehensive; third party property, fire and theft; and third party property only, and it's underwritten by Auto & General.
In Qantas's 2018 Annual Results, the airline announced it would launch more Qantas-branded financial products this financial year. The launch of Qantas Car Insurance follows on from Qantas introducing travel insurance over a decade ago and health insurance more recently in 2017.
Qantas's next foray into insurance will be the launch of home insurance cover in 2020. In other news for frequent flyers, Qantas will soon be launching its Points Club with more options to earn status credits and lounge passes through spending on the ground in the near future.
If you want to earn Qantas Points and don't already belong to the program, see Finder's guide to joining Qantas Frequent Flyer to get started and save on the membership fee.
