The Qantas Frequent Flyer program has announced a new partnership, promising simple alternative members to get points without setting foot on the plane.
In fact, members now have the opportunity to get thousands all from their car seats.
Starting today, anyone who owns a vehicle will be rewarded with an Australian airline that is launching their own car insurance program.
By registering, members will immediately get 20,000 Frequent Flyer points, as well as points for every dollar spent on their premium.
But the airline said there would be three simple ways members could increase their number of points with an insurance program, and all ended with a simple inspection.
CEO of Qantas Group, Alan Joyce, said up to 6000 points can be obtained when members apply brakes, tire pressure or general engine checks after applying to the insurance program.
The launch of the car insurance program follows the airlines' success to health insurance, life insurance and travel insurance, with cars being the next clear step for the airline. Mr Joyce said he hopes the new program follows in the same footsteps as their health insurance, which has "become one of the largest and fastest growing health insurers on the market today."
"Insurance can be a grudge purchase but in the first year of having Qantas Car Insurance, you can get enough points to fly from Brisbane to Singapore or Sydney to Bali," said Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce.
Mr Joyce said the airline would venture into home insurance by 2020, and hoped that
The change came from the back of a renewed decade-long partnership between the Frequent Flyer program and Woolworths Rewards, which earlier this month announced the conversion rate from Woolworths Rewards to Qantas Frequent Flyer points would increase by almost 15 percent (meaning 2000 Woolworths Rewards Points will now be converted to 1000 Qantas Points, up from 870 points).
As part of a rebuilt relationship, Qantas customers can now link their accounts and register for the Woolworths Prize on the Qantas website. Woolworths Rewards has also introduced a simplified two-click process for Qantas conversions on its website.
The Qantas Frequent Flyer prize program has nearly 13 million members, while the Virgin Australia Velocity program has just passed 10 million, with many people being part of both schemes.
In June, Australian airlines announced the biggest overhaul in the 32-year history of the Frequent Flyer program.
The changes, which have been launched sporadically since the announcement, change the way members can redeem points on Qantas flights, and follow members' years of feedback.
At the time, Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce said that under the changes, there would be more seats available to be redeemed and costs would be deducted, but if you expect to upgrade to a premium cabin, you will be charged more points.
