Our verdict

  • Its membership benefits are pretty good. When you take out an RAA landlord insurance policy, you automatically become an RAA member and get access to benefits including Big W discounts and money off other insurance products.
  • It's one of the few insurers that also offers short stay landlord insurance, ideal if you're looking to rent out a holiday home or Airbnb.
  • It's not for everyone — only people with property in South Australia can get a policy.

RAA landlord insurance policies

Here are the policies that you can get through RAA:

Landlord (Permanent) Rental

This type of policy is for traditional rentals and cover you for several insured events such as storms, theft, fire and vandalism.

Short Stay (Holiday) Rental

RAA is one of a handful of insurers that provide short term rental insurance for landlords looking to rent out their holiday home or property. To be eligible, your property must be used primarily as a rental property and you mustn't be there for more than 50% of the time, unless RAA has agreed with you otherwise. Like Landlord (Permanent) Rental insurance, you can get cover for the building only, the contents only or a combination of the two.

Here's some of the main insured events you'll be covered for with RAA landlord insurance.
