Our Verdict

  • You get lots of Kogan.com benefits, including $10 off purchases over $100, once a month.
  • Kogan home insurance is issued by QBE Insurance (Australia) Limited, one of Australia's biggest insurers. It means you're in trusted hands but your policy is similar to other QBE insurance products.
  • Its 16% discount isn't market-leading – Budget Direct, St.George and Westpac all offer more.

What does Kogan home insurance cover?

You can choose from combined home and contents, contents only, and landlord insurance.

Here are some of the main events a Kogan home insurance policy can cover you for.

Kogan home insurance comes with a 21-day cooling off period which is the standard among most insurers. This means you can cancel within 21 days of taking out a policy and you won't be charged, so long as you don't make a claim. Like all insurers, you'll also need to pay at least one excess when you submit a claim.

  • Monitored alarm attendance

Optional add-ons

Kogan doesn't offer an extensive range of optional add-ons, just the basics. These are benefits you can pay extra for. They include:
  • Accidental damage
  • Portable valuables
  • Rent default (landlords only)

Exclusions

Kogan's general exclusions are similar to other insurers. Here are some of the main events you won't be covered for:

  • Action of the sea
  • Bushfire, storm, rainwater or flood within 72 hours of taking out cover
  • Gradual deterioration
  • Home unoccupied for longer than 90 consecutive days
  • Inherent defects or maintenance failures
  • Any earth movement except as otherwise covered
  • Tree roots
  • Cleaning with heat or chemicals

Make sure you read Kogan's PDS for a full list of exclusions. You can also find out more about what home insurance doesn't cover here.

Wondering about Kogan's 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 Kogan's underwriter, QBE, did:

  • It received significantly fewer complaints compared to other insurers of its size
  • QBE has a fairly low rate of resolving its complaints directly with its customers compared to Hollard and Insurance Australia Limited.

Bottom line about Kogan home insurance

Kogan home insurance is good if you want an insurer that's underwritten by a big insurer like QBE but comes with Kogan.com perks.

If you're not yet ready to take out a policy, you can compare other home insurance policies side-by-side here.
