If you are renting, have you considered how much it would cost to replace all the contents in your home if they were destroyed by fire or storm? Or in the event of theft or burglary? Allianz can help you protect your belongings from loss or damage caused by insured events such as fire, theft and storm.
The better you understand your policy, the easier it will be if you ever have to claim. Here is a limited summary of the benefits of a contents insurance policy. For full details, of the terms, conditions, limits and exclusions that apply please read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS), any applicable supplementary PDS and the applicable Key Fact Sheets (KFS) before making a decision to purchase the insurance.

What does it mean if I take the Accidental Damage cover option?
This optional cover provides even more protection – it covers you in the event of damage caused by unexpected mishaps that are caused unintentionally not just the specified insured events.
If you have contents cover and take this option, the sort of mishaps you’ll be covered for include when you spill red wine on the carpet or lounge.
