Qantas has added yet another financial product to its suite of offerings with the launch of Qantas Car Insurance.

The insurance, underwritten by Auto & Genera, offers Qantas Frequent Flyer members different types of cover along with the opportunity to earn Qantas Points.

The three cover options are: comprehensive; third party property, fire and theft; and third party property only.

Customers will earn 1 Qantas Point per $1 of the premium paid. They can also earn up to 6,000 bonus Qantas Points when they complete tasks that will help keep them and their vehicle safer and log them via the Qantas Wellbeing app. This includes such things as checking the tyre pressure and getting the car serviced.

As a special promotion, Qantas is also offering up to 20,000 bonus Qantas Points. Customers who purchase a Qantas Car Insurance policy between 29/10/19 and 20/12/19 will earn up to 20,000 points, with the exact amount depending on the policy. You can expect that less expensive cover will earn fewer bonus points.

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

“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 the same reason.”

As a non-car owner I’m not sure how these products compare with other policies in the market, but it should go without saying that it’s wise to compare your options before deciding on any particular policy.
