A. Yes, if you've chosen business use cover, however we don't cover business use for:
A. Market value is the reasonable cost to replace your car with one of the same make, model, age and condition at the time of loss or damage. It doesn't include any allowance for warranty, stamp duty, transfer costs or dealer profit. Agreed value is the amount we agree to insure your car for during each term of insurance. The value may change each time you renew the policy.
A. Yes, it may be protected for a small additional premium, provided:
This protection will allow you to make one claim during the current period of insurance, or two claims in a three-year period without affecting your NCD.
You won’t lose any NCD on renewal following a window glass claim, or if the other car in a collision is entirely at fault and the driver is identified to us. For other claims, your NCD may be reduced at renewal.
You can protect your Rating 1 (maximum no claims discount) by selecting our NCD protection option. This allows you to have one claim per 12-month policy period, or up to two claims in three years without affecting the rating.
If you have NCD protection with us for two consecutive claim-free years, you qualify for a Rating 1 for life (which means all car insurance claims have no impact on your NCD for as long as you have NCD protection).
A. There are several ways to make your premium more affordable. These include:
A. You can choose to spread the cost of your insurance by paying in monthly instalments instead of one bulk sum. If you choose to pay by the month, please make sure payments happen on time (or your policy may be cancelled without notice).

A. Try not to panic. The first thing you should do is report it to the police and ask for an incident number.

Or, if you have purchased the Choice of Repairer option you may choose to nominate your preferred repairer. Please note that should our assessor consider a repairer’s quotation is not competitive, or that the repairs would not be completed to a satisfactory standard, we may decide not to authorise repairs and have the car repaired by an alternative repairer chosen by us, or pay you the reasonable cost to satisfactorily repair the car, as determined by us.
A. Our Comprehensive cover automatically includes a hire car if your car is stolen or if it is involved in a no fault accident.
If we agree to pay your claim for the theft of the car, we will reimburse you the reasonable cost of hiring a similar car, until the car is recovered and repairs have been completed, your claim is paid, or up to a maximum period of 14 days, whichever occurs first. The maximum payable under this benefit is $1,000.
If we agree to pay your claim for a no fault accident, we will arrange for a compact hire car for you to use until the car is repaired, your claim is paid, or for a maximum period of 14 days, whichever occurs first.
If you purchase the Accident Hire Car option, after we agree to pay your at fault claim we will arrange for a compact hire car for you to use until the car is repaired, your claim paid, or for a maximum period of 14 days, whichever occurs first.
A. You’ll be required to pay:
The dollar amounts of your Basic Excess and the additional excesses are shown on your insurance certificate and can also be viewed in your online account.
A. Yes – you can change your Basic Excess at any time. If you increase your excess, we’ll lower your premium (and vice-versa).
A. If an excess is applicable to your claim and your car is repairable, we’ll ask you to pay the excess before the repairs start.
If your vehicle is written off, we’ll deduct the excess from the final settlement amount we pay you.
Before switching providers we recommend you compare all policy features and find out if cancellation fees apply. Approved applicants only.
