Additional benefits 

In addition to the standard roadside assistance coverage, Quest offers the following benefits up to a $500 claim limit. If the vehicle undergoes insured repairs after being authorised, the owner is entitled to these additional benefits.

  • Accommodation of up to $360 - If the nominated vehicle breaks down more than 100 kilometres from your home and requires warranty repairs, arrangements will be made for the driver and passengers up to a maximum of 3 nights at a rate of $120 per night. However, if the driver chooses not to use the accommodation entitlement, the replacement vehicle's hire period can be extended. 
  • Alternative transport of up to $120 - In the absence of a replacement vehicle, or if the driver prefers, Quest will arrange for the most comfortable and convenient mode of transportation like bus, train, or plane to allow the driver of the nominated vehicle and any travel companions to continue their journey, up to a maximum of $120 per incident.
  • Finance Instalment of up to $200 – If a repair takes more than 30 days from the date of authorization, Quest Insurance will contribute $200 to the cost of instalments related to vehicle finance, if applicable.
