Your Real Home Insurance claim will not be paid if:
Also keep in mind that there are fixed claim limits in place for some items of contents, for example a $1,000 limit for bicycles under Essential Contents cover.
Cost is always an important factor when you’re shopping for insurance, and there are several factors that can influence the price of your Real Home Insurance premiums.
When you make a claim on your Real Home Insurance policy, the excess is the amount you need to pay for each insured incident. Depending on your policy and your individual circumstances, a number of excesses may apply to your cover. For example, a fixed excess of $100 applies to claims made under the optional cover for electrical motor burnout or portable valuables. In addition, a $500 excess applies to claims of earthquake and flood.
However, for other claims you are able to select the excess you pay, and the level of this excess is reflected in the price of your premiums.
If an incident occurs that may lead to a claim, make sure to take all reasonable steps to prevent any further loss or damage. Next, call Real Insurance’s claims team on to report the incident, making sure to provide as much detail as possible about what happened. Of course, if the incident involves theft, vandalism or malicious acts, you’ll also have to report it to the police as soon as possible.
If Real Insurance requests any further information or documentation to support your claim, it is your responsibility to provide this in a prompt manner. This may include police incident report numbers, proof of ownership, photographic evidence, court notices and more.
If you want comprehensive insurance cover for your home and contents, consider the policy options offered by Real Home Insurance. However, as always, remember that it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of multiple policies from competing insurers to find the right cover for you. Ensure you read the product disclosure statement to find out if this policy is right for you.
