Contents Insurance for Renters

   

Cover when you’re moving house

Allianz will cover your contents for loss or damage caused by an insured event both at your new and old address for up to 14 days after you first start to move. No cover is provided for loss or damage whilst contents are in transit (unless you have Accidental damage cover).

Alternative accommodation for you and your pets

 

If your 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 pay the additional costs for temporary accommodation for you up to 10% of the contents sum insured and up to $500 for temporary accommodation for your pets in a commercial boarding establishment.

Debris removal

Allianz will pay up to 10% of the contents sum insured for the removal of debris from the home building if your contents are damaged or destroyed by an insured event.

Food or medicine spoilage

If your refrigerator or freezer breaks down and you lose your perishable food or medicine as a result, Allianz will pay for you to replace it. If you claim for this benefit, excess will apply. If the spoilage is due to a natural disaster (declared by Allianz, the government or the Insurance Council of Australia) the maximum Allianz will pay is $500. No excess will apply.

Guest, visitor and domestic helper property

Allianz also provide cover for property belonging to your guests, visitors and domestic helpers up to $5,000 (included in your contents sum insured), if it is lost or damaged as a result of an insured event that you are claiming for.

Cover for events

Allianz will cover you up to your contents sum insured for loss or damage caused by storm, cyclone, rainwater and run-off (provided run-off is not combined with flood waters). For cyclones, floods, grassfires and bush fires a 72 hour exclusion period applies.

Cover for storm damage

Legal liability

Allianz will cover your legal liability up to $20 million for payment of compensation relating to death, bodily injury or illness, and/or physical loss of or damage to property caused by an accident (or series of accidents). If you have contents cover, it does not cover any legal liability you may incur as owner of the buildings unless the buildings are defined as a lot.

Accidental breakage cover for your rental property

Allianz will cover you for accidental breakage of a fixed glass or ceramic item, like a window, cooking surface, sink or toilet if you are legally liable as a tenant to pay for the breakage. 

 

 


Optional Covers

Apply to add any of these optional covers for an additional premium and greater cover.

Optional cover – Accidental damage

The accidental damage cover option helps protect you in the event of accidental unexpected mishaps that are caused unintentionally – giving you greater coverage for your home building and/or contents.

Optional cover - Portable contents

You can choose optional cover to protect your portable contents such as mobile phones, cameras and engagement rings in the event of theft or an accident at the insured address and when you take them out of your home, even when you are temporarily outside Australia for up to 120 continuous days in any period of insurance. Some portable contents must be specified as Listed Portable Contents with the full replacement value to be covered away from the home.

Optional cover - 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.

Optional cover - Flood cover

Flood cover may be available as an optional cover to your contents. A 72 hour exclusion period applies.

Optional cover - Domestic workers’ compensation cover

Cover for a domestic worker (e.g. gardener or cleaner), if they are injured   while working for you at the insured address.  Only available in ACT, WA and TAS.

Contents > What’s covered?

Contents > What’s covered?

Contents insurance protects the belongings you have at the insured address: from your furniture, carpet and appliances to your BBQ and even your clothes, shoes and handbags.

So, if any of the insured events happen during the period of insurance, we’ll generally pay to repair or replace your contents – up to the policy limits.

Policy Documents and Key Fact Sheets

We do not provide advice based on any consideration of your objectives, financial situation or needs. Terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply. 

Before making a decision please refer to the Home Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) any applicable supplementary PDS and Home Contents Key Fact Sheet also available for reference.

Home Contents Calculators

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 (subject to the policy terms and conditions) - so you should also be careful not to over insure. That's why we've provided this calculator. It works as a guide to help you estimate the replacement value of your home contents.
