Qantas moves into the world of car insurance, with big frequent flyer benefits to boot

Motorists will now be rewarded with Qantas Points for performing brake and tyre checks and booking their car in for a service with the launch of Qantas Car Insurance.

The airline’s 13 million frequent flyers can now earn up to 20,000 Qantas Points when they sign up for Qantas Car Insurance, as well as one point for every dollar spent on their premium.

Up to 6,000 additional points can also be earned when members complete tasks that will help keep them and their vehicle safer.

Qantas Car Insurance will offer Comprehensive, Third Party Property, Fire and Theft, and Third Party Property Only cover. Members can tailor their level of protection to suit their needs and budget.

Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said: “The power of Qantas Points to influence purchasing decisions has seen us expand into new areas including financial services and insurance.

“That’s opened up new revenue opportunities for us and new ways for members to get closer to their next holiday or upgrade.

“These are competitive products that have the added benefit of earning points, and we’ve seen that work well with health insurance and credit cards. We expect Qantas Car Insurance to be popular for same reason.

Joyce noted that while insurance can be a grudge purchase, members who have Qantas Car insurance could earn enough points to fly from Brisbane to Singapore or Sydney to Bali in the first year of taking out a policy.

“Qantas has a proud safety reputation, which is why motorists who insure their car with us will be rewarded for maintaining a safe car,” Joyce said.

Qantas Car Insurance is underwritten by Auto & General, with Qantas Loyalty providing marketing and customer experience.

The airline will also look to expand its Qantas Insurance portfolio to include home insurance in 2020.
