Understanding your policy

The better you understand your policy, the easier it will be if you ever have to claim.

Here is a limited summary of the benefits of a building and contents insurance policy. For full details, of the terms, conditions, limits and exclusions that apply please read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), and any applicable supplementary PDS before making a decision to purchase the insurance. The Home Buildings and Home Contents Key Fact Sheets (KFS) also set out some information about the cover.

Select the cover to suit your needs. Effective 22 February 2021.

  • Cover for storm damage - Rest easy, within the first 72 hours following a storm, Allianz provides cover for loss or damage caused by soil movement, landslide, mudslide or subsidence caused by a storm.
  • Making your buildings environmentally friendly - If your buildings are totally destroyed and need to be rebuilt, in addition to your buildings sum insured, Allianz will pay up to $5,000 (after deduction of any government or council rebates) to help you make the new buildings more environmentally friendly.
  • Alternative accommodation for you and your pets - If your Building or Contents are damaged by an insured event during the period of insurance to such an extent that you can’t live in your home buildings, Allianz will help pay the additional costs for temporary accommodation for you up to 10% of the building or contents sum insured (as applicable) and up to $500 for temporary accommodation for your pets in a commercial boarding establishment.

Some portable contents must be specified as Listed Portable Contents with the full replacement value to be covered away from the home.
  • Motor burnout - The Motor burnout option covers you if an electrical current damages your household electrical motors. This cover is automatically included if you have taken optional Accidental Damage cover.
  • Flood cover - Flood cover may be available as an optional cover to your buildings and/or contents. A 72 hour exclusion period applies.

Home and Contents Insurance questions and answers

Do what you reasonably can to prevent further loss, damage or liability. Tell the police as soon as reasonably possible about any malicious damage, theft, attempted theft, burglary or loss of insured property. Contact the Claims Call Centre on 1300 555 030 and advise the Claims Consultant of what has happened: the Claims Consultant will help you through the home and contents insurance claims process.

In order to be sure that you are covered under this policy you should always contact Allianz for approval before you incur expenses you wish to claim. If you do not, Allianz will pay for expenses incurred to the amount we would have authorised had you asked Allianz first.

It’s up to you to decide the sums insured, and the type and level of cover that you want to take out. People generally want enough insurance to cover the property’s estimated replacement value. If you don’t have enough cover, you could end up having to cover some of the costs yourself.

Remember, Allianz will only pay up to the amount of your loss or the sum insured, whichever is the lesser - so you should also be careful not to over-insure.

Before making a decision, please consider the relevant Product Disclosure Statement available here, any applicable supplementary PDS and Home Buildings and Home Contents key fact sheet/s also available for reference.

1. Online discount - When you buy a new home insurance policy online a discount of up to 10% is applied to your first year’s premium including for the following optional covers (if selected); Accidental damage, Flood, Motor Burnout and Portable Contents. This discount is not applied on renewal.

2. Combined - A discount of up to 10% for combining Buildings and Contents covers on one policy is applied for Building and Contents, Motor Burnout and Accidental damage cover where applicable. The combined policy discount does not apply to the optional Flood or Portable Contents covers. This combined discount does not apply to Landlord Insurance policies.

4. Minimum premiums - If you are eligible for more than one discount, Allianz applies them in a predetermined order. This means any subsequent discount will be applied to the reduced premium amount after applying any prior discounts and the effect of the subsequent discount will be reduced. For example, the aggregate effect of applying two 10% discounts consecutively means that you will not see the full benefit of both these discounts. Discounts do not apply to taxes or government charges. Discounts do not apply to optional covers for Domestic Workers Compensation / Landlord Workers Compensation, and may not apply to other optional covers (if available and selected). Any discounts/entitlements may be subject to rounding and may only apply to the extent that any minimum premium is not reached.

6. Instalment premiums - If you choose to pay your premium by instalments you do not pay us any more than if you pay your premium in one lump sum annually. The premiums payable by instalments may be subject to minor adjustments (upwards or downwards) due to rounding. Note: Your financial institution may apply transaction fees to instalment payments.
