Over the past two years 40 MIGA clients won 500,000 Qantas Points simply by renewing their insurance with MIGA!  Hear from our lucky clients who share their travel highlights. 

Punta San Carlos is a secluded coastal desert famous for its waves and winds, making it the perfect kitesurfing destination for one brave-hearted and adventurous medical practitioner.  The small fishing village on the west coast of Baha, Mexico is where Dr Bushell (SA) recently travelled, thanks to the half a million Qantas Points he won when he renewed his insurance with MIGA . “I used the Points for a holiday to Mexico for a kitesurfing week,” Dr Bushell said.  “I camped right along the ocean, atop cliffs in Punta San Carlos and also used the Points towards business class flights because I went back to work the very next day.”

Dr Bushell is one of the 40 lucky MIGA clients who won 500,000 Qantas Points as part of MIGA’s Win a Share of 10 Million Qantas Points competition.  Renewing with MIGA has never been so rewarding, with each renewal period for the past two years seeing 20 winners receive an enormous boost to their Qantas Points balance.

Booking a holiday is a sure-fire way to cure any mid-year slump and take a break from the demands of work. This is exactly how many of the winners have used their Qantas Points.  From a short family getaway to Byron Bay for Dr Brookes (NSW), to international holidays to Bali and Japan for Dr Brownstein (VIC), and Europe for Dr Humphries (WA), MIGA’s renewal competitions have enabled winners to jet around the world.

When it comes to their work in healthcare, there is no questioning the altruism of our hard-working doctors.  For Dr Wong (VIC), this selflessness has also extended to him treating his parents to a trip to Thailand. “This used up about half of the Points, so I still have the other half left,” Dr Wong said.

Practising medicine involves a busy and highly dynamic work life, which means for other winners, they have yet to switch off, take a break and treat themselves to a holiday.  Nonetheless, the Points have been a welcome help to the travel demands of work, advanced training, and career ventures.  Dr Bolton (SA) is currently completing an Orthopaedic Fellowship, which involves a busy and expensive schedule.  Most of her Qantas Points have been used to meet the cost of travelling to exams and conferences for her training.

For midwife, Amberley Harris, winning 500,000 Qantas Points came at the perfect time.  “I am making a Breastfeeding Documentary so the Points will go to flights for my filmmaker and I, as we travel around the globe making this showpiece,” Mrs Harris said.  “I can’t thank MIGA and Qantas enough!”
