What types of deals and discounts are available?

Loyalty discounts

Loyalty discounts are offered by almost all insurers if you keep your insurance with the same provider for more than one year. Discounts start at 5% and can go up to about 15% when you stay for a significant period of time e.g. 25 years. Conditions are as follows:

  • You must hold policies with the insurer for more than two years in order to benefit.
  • The discount increases each additional year the policy is held.

Loyalty discounts are applied to any existing or new policies. For joint policies, the discount is calculated based on the partner who has the longest existing relationship with the provider. Businesses are treated as a separate entity, so your personal insurance policies won’t contribute to loyalty discounts for a business in your name.

Rewards programs

Just like supermarket and airline rewards programs, some life insurance products allow you to collect reward points. These programs allow you to accumulate discounts on life insurance payments or accumulate points towards other rewards programs e.g. frequent flyers.

Key features:

  • Provides benefits when you take out an insurance policy.
  • You may be able to contribute points to any existing rewards programs you have with financial institutions or airlines.
  • Can include special deals for movie tickets, flights or experiences.
  • Bonus insurance benefits or cover may be awarded if you hold your policy for multiple years.

Multi-policy discounts

Most large insurance companies that offer a range of products will give you a discount when you take out more than one policy. Discounts start at around 5% and increase to about 15% for 10 or more policies.

Key features:

  • Policies can be for the same or different types of cover for items such as cars, home, life and travel.
  • To get the maximum discount you may need to hold policies for more than 25 years.

While life insurance policies might count towards discount eligibility, they may not be discounted themselves. For instance, if you take out life and car insurance with the same insurer, you might get a discount on the car insurance, but not necessarily on the life policy.

Businesses are treated separately for multi-policy discounts, so policies for a business cannot contribute to a discount for personal policies. However, a multi-policy discount can be combined with loyalty discounts, so you could get a total discount of up to 25% for 10 or more policies and a 25-year or longer relationship.

Joint cover discounts

Couples or families who take out a policy together may be able to get a joint cover discount. As the cost of insuring a couple is less than for a single individual, you should get a discount when purchasing your policy.

Key features:

  • Joint cover can be taken out for a family as well as with a partner.
  • The policy must include everyone’s name at the time it is established.

When taking out joint cover, additional discounts are based on the loyalty benefit of the policy member who has the longest relationship and most policies with the company. For instance, if one partner has held multiple policies for many years, then the loyalty and multi-policy discount for the joint policy will be calculated based on that person's discount eligibility. However, the other partner can include the joint policy for any future discount eligibility.

Free life insurance for first month

Some insurers offer free life insurance cover for the first month. You still have the same level of cover during the premium-free period, but payments aren’t taken until the second month.

Key features:

  • You don’t pay a premium for the first month of cover.
  • In some instances, you will be refunded a months worth of cover after holding the policy for 12 months.
  • You can still benefit from other discounts, such as multi-policy of loyalty discounts, when you become eligible for them.

Large-sum discounts

If you purchase a large amount of cover, you may get a further discount. These can be up to 30% for amounts over $500,000.

Key features:

  • Discounts range from roughly 10% for $300,000 to 30% on an insured sum of $500,000.
  • They can be combined with other discounts such as joint policy, loyalty and multi-policy if applicable.

Regardless of any discounts available, you should always compare the prices and inclusions of of a range of policies before purchasing. There might be one that better suits your needs, even without a discount.
