Honey insurance

Honey Home and Contents insurance

Honey won this year's Finder Award because it covers more than the majority of insurers and comes with higher limits. Its home and contents policy comes with automatic flood cover, up to $20,000 towards your home office contents, $6,000 towards jewellery and you can pay monthly at no extra cost. You also get smart sensors (worth $250) when you sign up to help detect and prevent household accidents.
