Bendigo Bank Landlord Insurance policy
Here are the landlord insurance policies Bendigo Bank offers:
This covers the property itself, which can include in-built pools, spas, garages, sheds, fences and decks. It also protects infrastructure (e.g. supply of electricity, gas, water, Internet and phone), but not contents or belongings at the property.
Building & Contents
This policy covers both your building and the contents kept at the property. It's suited to landlords who want ultimate peace of mind knowing that the building and belongings are covered. You're insured for events including fire or explosion, theft, landslide or subsidence, impact by a vehicle, water damage, vandalism, storm, flood, rainwater or wind and more.
This cover is suited to landlords whose building is already insured by an owners' corporation or strata, so you only need insurance for the contents kept at the property. This can include carpets, blinds, non-in-built swimming pools and spas, curtains, furniture, white goods and more.

Bendigo Bank landlord insurance excesses
An excess is a payment you have to contribute towards the cost of a claim. Bendigo will let you know when and if you need to pay an excess when you make a claim.
The type of excess that applies to your policy and the amount that you need to pay will be listed on your policy schedule. In some circumstances, you might be required to pay more than one excess. If you make a claim for loss or damage that occurs as a result of an earthquake or tsunami, your excess will be increased by $250. Even if you make one claim for separate incidents, you'll most likely need to pay an excess for each incident.
