How we compare contents insurance

We collect publicly available product information on insurance policies, and send surveys to insurers asking for quotes for a range of scenarios. 

Premiums differ from home to home, so we can't estimate how much a policy will cost you. To compare policies on price we obtained quotes for five different customer scenarios in two locations per state and territory (one in the capital, one in a high-risk area) as well as northern Queensland. By comparing the results of these tests we can see how each policy stacks up against the competition in each region.
