Limited Contents Insurance Policy Benefits:

Cover for burglary, fire, storm, flood or natural disaster

Protect the things you value with cover for loss or damage to your contents caused by burglary, fire, storm, flood or natural disaster.

If you need cover for accidental loss or damage in events other than these, our Contents Insurance policy may be right for you.

New for old

If something you own is stolen in a burglary, or damaged beyond repair - we'll replace your item with a new one or with the nearest available equivalent.

While most items will be covered by new for old cover, certain items such as clothing, footwear and cosmetics, or those items which don’t have an equivalent replacement item available, we will pay the Market Value.

Business tools and professional equipment

If you have business tools and professional equipment but don't require additional business cover, these are automatically covered under your Limited Contents Insurance Policy for up to $2,500 per event.

If you need additional business cover, our Small Business Insurance may be right for you. Please call us on 0800 500 231 to discuss further.

Adjustable event limits

You don’t need to list individual items, but you might need to tell us the total combined value for things like jewellery, cameras, bicycles and business tools.

Check our policy document or contact us to discuss whether you need more cover for any items.

Legal liability

If you accidentally damage someone else's property, such as breaking a vase in a store - we'll cover you for any claim they make, up to $2million.
