Travelers can now earn Qantas frequent flyer points without boarding an aircraft as part of the airline's new auto insurance plan.
Qantas Car Insurance was launched on Tuesday and the program gives customers 20,000 points for signing up.
People are also entitled to an additional 6,000 points every time their vehicle's brakes, engine and tires are checked.
Qantas members also receive an extra point for every dollar they spend on their premium.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said that within a year of the new car insurance program, travelers could have accumulated enough points to fly to Bali.
& # 39; These are competitive products with the added benefit of earning points, and we've seen that this works well with health insurance policies and credit cards. We expect Qantas Car Insurance to be popular for the same reason & # 39 ;, said Joyce.
& # 39; Insurance can be a grudge, but in the first year you have Qantas Car Insurance, you can earn enough points to fly from Brisbane to Singapore or Sydney to Bali. & # 39;
In a survey of more than 700 frequent flyers from Qantas, more than half said they only had one or fewer cars a year and a third did not know how to check their own brakes.

Dr. Darren Wishart, an expert in road safety, said that regular car inspections were vital.
& # 39; Road conditions in Australia can vary greatly, so simple things like checking the air pressure in your tires is a small but crucial step that can be done to help you stay safe on the road, & # 39; he said.
The airline currently has 13 million frequent flyer members.
Joyce said Qantas' next plan is to launch its own home insurance program next year.
