“Only renting”?

All across Australia, people say they’re “only renting” like that’s a bad thing.

But renting can be a great opportunity to focus on what’s important to you, instead of worrying about building repairs or mortgage payments. Nearly 2 out of 3 renters say renting is a better fit for their lifestyle3.

Plus, you can focus on protecting just the things that matter to you. Like with Renters’ Contents Insurance, which covers important things including your furniture, TV, computer and more, without also paying for buildings cover that you don’t need.

Do you know how much the items in your home are worth?

Things you should know

  1. If you’re renting the home (a tenant), we pay the extra rent costs we agree are reasonable for you, your family and the pets you normally keep at the home.

  2. We don’t cover actions of the sea, such as tides and waves. Check the PDS for a full list of exclusions. If we give you the option to remove cover for flood, rainwater run-off and storm surge and you choose to do so, you won’t be covered for loss or damage to your home caused by flood, rainwater run-off or storm surge.

  3. Based on the October 2020 YouGov Contents Insurance Study involving 884 home owners and renters.
