- Property and contents basic excess. This applies to all claims unless they let you know otherwise. You have the option of choosing a higher basic excess which will reduce your premium.
- Loss of rent – Insured event excess. This applies in addition to any other excesses you might need to pay and is applicable when you claim for optional cover loss of rent.
- Malicious damage and theft excess. This applies when you make a claim for a malicious act, theft or attempted theft claim caused by your tenant or someone who is at the property with you or your tenant's consent.
- Earthquake and tsunami excess. This applies in addition to other excesses and is applicable when you make a claim for loss or damage as a result of an earthquake or tsunami.
- Additional excess. Additional excesses may apply based on the level of risk you pose. This should be outlined to you when you buy a policy.
