Our verdict

  • BankSA includes flood cover as standard on all its policies – a plus because many other providers charge extra or include restrictive exclusions.
  • You can choose to pay your premium monthly and not be charged extra.
  • While BankSA may offer 2 attractive sign-up deals, its 10% policy saving for combining home and contents insurance doesn't get close to Budget Direct's saving of 30%.

What does BankSA Home Insurance cover?

BankSA Home Insurance offers 3 main policy types to suit most Australians: building insurance, contents insurance and combined home and contents insurance. You can also find cover for both landlords and renters.

BankSA Home Insurance is issued by Allianz Australia Insurance Limited, one of the biggest insurance companies in Australia. It offers customers the choice of their excess amount (from $500 to $10,000) and has a cooling off period of 14 days.

Exclusions

Home insurance policies are usually very clear about what they will and won't cover. You can find a list of general exclusions that apply to BankSA's home insurance in its product disclosure statement (PDS). Here are a few of the key exclusions to be aware of:

  • Actions of the sea
  • Deliberate, intentional, malicious or criminal acts
  • Inherent defects including faulty design
  • Insects, birds and vermin including native animals
  • Lost property
  • Rust, damp or chemical damage
  • Soil movement
  • Wear and tear

Make sure you read BankSA's PDS for a more detailed breakdown of exclusions. You can also head to our general exclusions guide for more information.

Here's some information on BankSA Home Insurance complaints

We looked at home insurance complaint data from the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) between July 2022 and June 2023. The data breaks down different underwriters and compares their business size to the number of complaints processed.

When comparing insurers, keep in mind that insurers with a larger market share serve more customers, so can potentially get more complaints.

Here's an overview of how BankSA (Allianz Australia Insurance Limited) did:

  • Allianz is categorised by AFCA as a very large general insurer, which means it's normal to see a large number of complaints. Comparatively, it received much less than insurers of similar size like QBE.
  • It does, however, have a lower percentage of complaints that were resolved at the first stage of the complaints process.
