Voted Most Trusted General Insurer* by NZers for 10 years running

Home Insurance Policy Benefits:

Replacement Cover

If you have taken steps to set an accurate Sum Insured and size of your home, unless the damage to your home is caused by a natural disaster, we will settle your claim using Replacement Cover. This means you’ll be covered for the full cost of the repairs or rebuild of your home. If you’re not sure how to do this please check out our Sum Insured page .

Temporary Accommodation

If your home becomes uninhabitable as a result of an event covered by your policy, we will pay the reasonable costs of alternative accommodation for you, your family and your pets. This is usually limited to $20,000 and for 12 months, however if you’re claiming as a result of an earthquake/tsunami this can extend the 12 month limit to $40,000.

Replacement of keys or locks

If the security of your home is at risk following a burglary, theft or loss, we’ll pay to replace your keys or locks, or change your key codes.

New building work

Renovating your house? Minor renovations and unfixed building materials for renovations under the total value of $50,000 are covered. See more.

Optional extra

Excess-Free Glass Cover

Adding Excess-Free Glass Cover to your policy means you won’t need to pay any excess if a claim is made on glass for windows, doors, and built-in furniture. See more.
