What’s on offer with AA Insurance’s Home Insurance?

This policy includes Replacement Cover, unless the damage to your home is caused by a natural disaster. Replacement Cover essentially protects you against the cost to rebuild or repair your house. As well as this, you will be covered for temporary accommodation if your house is damaged to the extent it is uninhabitable. You, your family and pets may be eligible for up to 12 months of accommodation. This is usually limited to $20,000, however if you’re claiming as a result of an earthquake or tsunami this could be extended past the 12-month limit, up to a maximum of $40,000.

You’re eligible for replacement of keys and locks if the security of your home is at risk following a burglary, theft or loss. Minor renovations and unfixed building materials for renovations under the total value of $75,000 are also covered. At an extra cost, you can add Excess-Free Glass Cover, meaning you don’t need to pay an excess for damage caused to windows, doors and built in furniture.

What’s on offer with AA Insurance’s Contents Insurance?

AA Insurance offer two levels of contents insurance – Contents Insurance and Limited Contents Insurance.

With this policy, you will be covered for the cost of personally owned business tools and professional equipment, in the event they need to be replaced. There is cover up to $3,000 per event, however, you can choose to increase the limit if it is required.

The policy also offers two optional benefits for an additional cost, Excess-Free Hearing Aid Cover and $100 Excess on Eyewear. It also includes excess-free cover for food spoilage – up to $1,000 – when a fridge or freezer stops working, the power supply was accidently disconnected or there was a power surge.
