What cover options does Comminsure have?
Comminsure does not have different levels of cover or packages. The premium you pay is based only on the value you wish to insure your property for. You can also adjust the premium by changing the amount of excess you are willing to pay. For an additional cost, you can include optional cover for accidental damage, domestic work and portable contents. Premiums are payable monthly or annually, depending on your preference.
What am I covered for?
A Comminsure home and contents policy insures your possessions against the following events:
- Accidental glass breakage
- Animal damage
- Burn out of electric motors
- Escape of liquid
- Legal Liability
- Malicious acts
- Riot and public disturbances
What are some other benefits of getting this policy?

- Demolition and debris removal
- Domestic pets
- Loss of rent

What excess do I need to pay?
The excess is the amount you must contribute if you make a claim on your insurance. When purchasing your insurance, you will be able to choose the amount of excess you wish to pay. The excess amount will be stated on the certificate of insurance. The excess amount will be deducted from the settlement amount before you are paid by the insurer after a claim. In some instances, you will need to pay the excess to Comminsure before the claim is settled. You are only required to pay the excess amount once per claim. If you have a different excess for your building and contents policies, you will have to pay the higher amount of the two. If you choose optional portable contents cover, there is a fixed excess of $100 for each claim.
How can I make a claim?
To make a claim, contact Comminsure at 13 24 23 as soon as possible. You must take all reasonable actions to prevent or stop further damage to your property and be honest when making your claim. You must also report the incident to the police if the claim relates to theft or malicious acts. You will need to prove ownership of anything you are claiming under the contents policies. You can use the following to establish ownership:
- Warranty certificates
- Instruction manuals
- Original packaging
- Bank or credit card statements
- Valuation certificates
