Home and contents insurance reviews

We compare 64 insurance policies from 29 brands including AAMI, Allianz, Suncorp and more.

Last updated: 17th January 2014

It's important to protect your most valuable assets, but the type of home and contents insurance you need depends on your unique situation. We obtain quotes and policy details from 29 insurers based on four scenarios, which take into consideration the occupants' ages, family size, house types and sum insured.

Our independent review and comparison will help you decide which policy is right for your home and budget. Among other things, we look at:

  • under-insurance protection for home insurance
  • limits for various items under contents insurance
  • cover for flood, fire, storm surge and tsunami.

Not sure if you need home or just contents, standard or top cover? Start with our new home insurance buying guide and other inside information here.
