What excess do I need to pay?
An excess is the amount you contribute towards the cost of your claim. There are 3 types of excesses:
- Age (touring caravan only)
- Hail or cyclone (not applicable for Tasmania).
The type of excess you need to pay depends on what you are claiming. For example, when you make a claim for loss or damage caused by hail or a cyclone, you must pay a hail or cyclone excess in addition to the basic excess. Your certificate of insurance will show the amount and types of excess that apply to your policy. A claim is only accepted if the total amount you are claiming for is more than any excesses that apply to your claim.
How do I make a claim?
You make a claim in three simple steps:
- Collect details if they apply to the incident, such as: full name, residential address, contact number for all drivers involved, make, model, registration number and insurance details for the vehicles.
- Lodging your claim via the NRMA Insurance website: nrma.com.au/claims or calling the 7 days-a-week/24-hour claims line: 131 123
