Mozo snapshot

When you’re not jetsetting to new holiday or business destinations, you can still ‘fly’ with Qantas via Qantas Comprehensive Car Insurance. This policy considers all the basic costs you may need to cover if you’re involved in an accident – like damage to your vehicle and towing from the scene – as well as handy extras such as hire car and emergency travel and accommodation coverage. Plus, simply by signing up and paying your premium, you’ll be racking up Qantas points along the way.

Key features

If you like to cover your bases and get rewarded for your diligence, Qantas Comprehensive Car Insurance could be your ideal policy. You’ll be protecting your wheels against all the usual suspects: fire, theft and damage caused in an accident (plus up to $20 million in damage to other vehicles). Plus, if your snazzy new car is written-off within two years and has travelled less than 40,000km, it'll be replaced with a new one.

You’ll be covered for a hire car for up to 14 days following a theft, or in the case of a not-at-fault accident, until your car is repaired or a claim paid. Emergency travel and accommodation costs after an accident are also included in the policy ($200 per-day, up to $1,000), and if you’re towing a trailer or caravan, it’ll be covered for up to $1,000.

The list of insured items really goes on with this policy. Baby seats are covered for theft and damage up to $750, as are any personal items kept in the car. You also won’t have to stress if your keys are lost or stolen – they’re covered for up to $1,500. There are a few general exclusions to remember, including tyre damage caused by punctures, cuts or bursts, hiring the car out, or using it in a rideshare service.

But what of the rewards program, you say? Well, by signing up to the policy, you can score up to 20,000 Qantas points, based on your premium costs. Plus, for every $1 you spend on your premium, you’ll nab another Qantas point.

Who is it good for

This far-reaching policy is well suited to drivers who want to sleep easy knowing their car is covered in a wide range of circumstances. The Qantas points rewards program also makes it a top choice for frequent flyers.

Any catches

There is a young driver's excess of up to $600 for people under 21, and if you want to pay your premium in monthly instalments, you’ll have to fork out a little extra cash.

And remember, if you’re planning on using your car working for rideshares like Uber, Ola or any other paid taxi service, this won’t be covered.
