Effective 22 February 2021
If you take both Buildings and Contents insurance, here’s how they can work together if the unexpected occurs.
Plus, you will only have to pay the applicable excess(es) once in respect of any single claim if your buildings and contents are damaged by the same insured event.
Scenario 1: Your house burns down
You could lose all your buildings, and everything in them. With adequate sums insured under Buildings and Contents covers, you could rebuild and replace your insured belongings.
Scenario 2: A fire damages your kitchen
You could repair or rebuild built-in damaged parts of your kitchen, such as benchtops, with Buildings cover. Then you could replace damaged items like blinds and kitchenware under your Contents cover.
Scenario 3: Home break-in
A thief smashes your window, breaks the lock and steals your belongings. You can fix the window and lock through your Buildings cover and replace the items that were stolen under your Contents cover.

Travel Insurance customer
What a pleasure it has been to enquire about travel insurance with Sinead. She was so professional and helpful at all times. She was a pleasure to talk with and answered every question I had regarding travel insurance and above all returned my phone calls quickly with any questions she wasn't sure of. National Seniors Insurance are blessed to have such a delightful, helpful person working for them and I would recommend Sinead to any of my friends for travel insurance.
Mandy, 73 - QLD
Travel Insurance customer
I would like to say that Sinead was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in quoting for insurance for a couple of policies we were getting for comparison for. She is very friendly, easy to talk to and makes you feel like a friend rather than just another customer, which I like. I would recommend anyone to contact her for their insurance quotes.
It’s up to you to decide the sums insured, and the type and level of cover that you want to take out. 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 these calculators. They work as guides to help you estimate the replacement value of your home buildings and contents.

Information contained on this website is general information only.
1. Online discount
[Home] When you quote and buy a new home insurance policy online a discount of up to 10% is applied to your first year's premium including the following optional covers (if selected); Accidental damage, Flood, Motor Burnout and Portable Contents. This discount is not applied on renewal.
[Applies to Home & Contents only] A discount of up to 10% for combining Buildings and Contents covers on one policy is applied for Buildings 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.
When you take out a new policy, we calculate your No Claims Bonus based on your home or landlord (as applicable) insurance claims history. To qualify for the maximum No Claim Bonus of 30%, home insurance customers must have had no Buildings or Contents insurance claims in the preceding five year's. Landlord customers must have had no landlord insurance claims in the preceding 3 year's. However, customers who have had claims may still qualify for a reduced No Claim Bonus.
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.
5. Excess reduction
Not available when an additional compulsory excess or imposed excess applies. Minimum Premiums apply.
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.
For more information about promotional or other discounts, please visit our Comprehensive Motor Insurance website here.
7. 72 hour waiting period
We do not provide cover for any loss of or damage to your property caused by cyclone, grassfires and bushfires, during the first 72 hours after you first purchase a policy or increase your cover under an existing policy.
8. Earthquake excess
An additional imposed excess amount of $250 applies for each claim or loss or damage caused by an earthquake or tsunami, or a series of earthquake or tsunamis, during any period of 48 consecutive hours.
