What does Everyday Home Insurance offer?

Everyday Home Insurance offers 3 types of home insurance: building insurance, contents insurance, and a building and contents insurance policy. After choosing your policy type, you can also select your level of cover from either standard or comprehensive. This is handy if flexibility is important to you and it's a feature that's not very common in Australian home insurance.

On top of that, Everyday Insurance also offers cover for landlords as well.

These policies are designed to cover events that can cause damage to your home. Here are some examples:

Everyday Home Insurance (AR No. 245476) is backed by The Hollard Insurance Company Pty Ltd. – a popular insurance underwriter in Australia. Everyday Home Insurance offers a few different levels of excesses so that you can choose an amount that you're happy with. On top of that, it has a 14-day cooling off period which is a little bit under industry standards.

      Hi Belinda,

      We’ve read your message, Thanks!

      Our home insurance page is an ideal page to visit to see your options. We covered the most critical topics to help out our users. For trouble-free navigation, we’ve gathered the things our users often check on our drop-down menu on the right side of our website. Simply select what you want to do on the list to be automatically taken to the part of the page where the topic is covered. For instance, if you chose Compare policies side-by-side, you’ll be rerouted to our comparison table to see the covers available.

      Please note that our table will let you compare policy features side by side, but it can’t give you a price just yet. That’s because the cost depends on specific details of your home – such as value and location. Instead, consider which features are most important to you. You can click on ‘More info’ to be rerouted to our review page to check the type of policies the provider offers, exclusions and cost. You can get a fuller breakdown (i.e. policy’s temporary accommodation, tools of the trade, guests content, and more) by clicking ‘View details’. Select ‘Get a quote’ to request an estimate.

      Before applying, please ensure that you review the relevant Product Disclosure Statements/Terms and Conditions when comparing your options before making a decision on whether it is right for you.

      Hope this was helpful.
      Cheers,
      Nikki

      Hi Colleen,

      Thanks for getting in touch. Finder is a comparison service and not an insurer. If you would like to get in contact with Woolworths, you can do so by heading to their contact us page.

    Does Woolworths offer House only Replacement cost insurance? Does Woolworths give an actual cash value settlement in the event of the policy holder choosing not to rebuild. Who underwrite Woolworths home insurance policies?

      AvatarFinder
      RichardMay 9, 2016Finder

      Hi Fleur,

      Thanks for your question. Woolworths do offer building only cover. According to the product disclosure statement:
      “If you decide not to proceed with the rebuild or repair of your building we will pay the lesser of:
      •The rebuild or repair cost
      •The difference in the value of your building and the land it is situated on before the damage occurred and the value of the building and land after the damage has been sustained

      Woolworths Home Insurance policies are underwritten by The Hollard Insurance Company Pty Ltd.

      I hope this was helpful,
      Richard
