Qantas expands its insurance portfolio to the home

After signalling its intention last year, the flying kangaroo has officially hopped into the home insurance space and placed a nice little bonus points offer on the table for Qantas Frequent Flyers.

Members can earn up to 40,000 Qantas points when they sign up for a Qantas Home Insurance policy by 28 February 2021, and a further one point per $1 spent on their premium.

Policyholders can also earn additional Qantas points each year by using the Qantas Wellbeing App to track household safety tasks like unplugging unused electrical appliances and checking smoke detectors.

Qantas Home Insurance includes home, contents, renters’ and landlord insurance, allowing customers to tailor their level of protection to suit their property and budget.

Olivia Wirth, CEO of Qantas Loyalty, said expanding on the success of its existing insurance range gives members more ways to earn points for everyday expenses on the ground.

“The products we’ve launched through Qantas Insurance have seen frequent flyers pocket billions of points,” she said.

“Part of that success has been offering ways to earn points in ways that are relevant to what you’re insuring.

“In the same way that we’ve rewarded our health insurance customers for exercising and car insurance customers for checking their tyres, home insurance customers will be able to earn points by doing some basic household safety tasks.”

Qantas Home Insurance is underwritten and issued by Auto & General, and is the newest product to join the airline’s insurance portfolio together with health, travel, life, and car insurance.

It means that frequent flyers opting to combine their car and home insurance can now maximise their rewards by taking out policies with Qantas Insurance.
