Upgrade to Home Plus
Home Plus is premium protection for your home. It gives you all the benefits of our standard home insurance, plus extra features and automatic cover you don’t usually find in other policies.
With Home Plus you get:
- An extra 25% on top of your insured amount to rebuild or repair your home (if you need it)
- Automatic cover for accidental damage
- Automatic cover for electric motor burnout or fusion in things like air con and pool pumps
- Cover for up to $2,000 of damage to plants, trees and shrubs.
To get Home Plus, select Upgrade to Plus cover at the end of your quote.
Have a question? We can help
Accidental damage cover protects you when things go wrong around your home.
For example, you'd be covered if your child accidentally knocked your TV over and broke the screen. Or if you were up in your roof and accidentally put your foot through the ceiling. Whether your building or contents are covered (or both) depends on your policy.
Accidental damage cover's automatically included with Home Plus and can be added to standard home insurance.
We have a network of Partner Repairers and suppliers. We engage these preferred repairers to assist in your claims process so they can help in returning you to the position you were in before your claim.
Rest assured that we only engage suitably qualified repairers and leading retailers that we work closely with to assist with your claim. We will also offer a lifetime guarantee on the workmanship of repairs authorised with one of our preferred repairers.
Yes, you can choose who repairs your home.
However, if you decide not to use one of our Partner Repairers, we won't be able to warrant the workmanship or repairs that are completed, or assist in managing the repairer throughout the repair on timeframes or quality.
We'll also only pay you the fair and reasonable amount that the repairs should cost.
Yes you can.
The calculation that's provided is a guide only. It's up to you to make sure your home is insured for its full replacement value.
However, if you insure your home for more than the cost to repair, replace or rebuild, we only pay the actual cost of repairing, replacing or rebuilding.
We operate in New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory, Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.
