It's up to you to decide the sums insured, and the type and level of cover that you want to take out. People generally want enough insurance to cover the property's estimated replacement value. If you don't have enough cover, you could end up having to cover some of the costs yourself.

Remember Allianz will only pay up to the amount of your loss or the sum insured, whichever is the lesser – so you should also be careful not to over insure. That's why we've provided these calculators. They work as guides to help you estimate the replacement value of your home building and contents.

  1. Online discount
    When you buy a new home insurance policy online a discount of up to 10% is applied to your first year’s premium, including for the following optional covers, if selected: Accidental damage, Flood, Motor Burnout and Portable Contents. This discount is not applied on renewal.
  2. Combined
    A discount of up to 10% for combining Buildings and Contents covers on one policy is applied for Building and Contents, Motor Burnout and Accidental damage cover where applicable. The combined policy discount does not apply to the optional Flood or Portable Contents covers. This discount does not apply to Landlord Insurance policies.
  3. NCB
    When you take out a new policy, we calculate your No Claims Bonus based on your home or landlords (as applicable) insurance claims history. To qualify for the maximum No Claim Bonus of 30%, home insurance customers must have had no Building or Contents insurance claims in the preceding five years. Landlord customers must have had no Landlord insurance claims in the preceding 3 years. However, customers who have had claims may still qualify for a reduced No Claim Bonus.
  4. Minimum premiums
    If you are eligible for more than one discount, Allianz applies them in a predetermined order. This means any subsequent discount will be applied to the reduced premium amount after applying any prior discounts and the effect of the subsequent discount will be reduced.  For example, the aggregate effect of applying two 10% discounts consecutively means that you will not see the full benefit of both these discounts.

    Discounts do not apply to taxes or government charges.

    Discounts do not apply to optional covers for Domestic Workers Compensation / Landlord Workers Compensation, and may not apply to other optional covers (if available and selected).

    Any discounts/entitlements may be subject to rounding and may only apply to the extent that any minimum premium is not reached.
  5. Excess reduction
    Not available when an additional compulsory excess or imposed excess applies. Minimum Premiums apply.
  6. Instalment premiums
    If you choose to pay your premium by instalments you do not pay us any more than if you pay your premium in one lump sum annually. The premiums payable by instalments may be subject to minor adjustments (upwards or downwards) due to rounding. Note: Your financial institution may apply transaction fees to instalment payments.
