$100 Excess on eyewear
You can choose to reduce your excess to $100 if you need to make a claim for spectacles, sunglasses or contact lenses.

Information for landlords
If you want to calculate your sum insured for Landlord contents, please refer to the policy document as there is limited cover in this instance.
