Key benefits

  • Demand surge

    If a natural disaster, flood or storm increases the cost of labour and materials, we may increase the sum insured to cover the costs of rebuilding your home by up to 15%.

  • Temporary accommodation

    Up to $30,000 for temporary accommodation expenses. It means you'll have somewhere to live if you have to move out of your home because it's uninhabitable as a result of a claim we've accepted.

  • Carpets extended replacement

    If your carpet is damaged, we’ll pay for their replacement. Plus, if you’ve got matching carpet in every room and we can’t find a suitable match, we’ll replace the lot.

  • Full replacement for fire

    We’ll rebuild your house following a fire even if the cost is more than your sum insured. Excludes fires following natural disasters.

  • One event, one excess

    If one event means you need to claim on multiple Tower car, home and contents policies, you’ll only need to pay one excess. It’s the highest excess that will apply.

  • Glass excess buyout

    You'll only pay a $50 excess when you claim for broken windows around your property.
