Mozo Experts Choice Awards 2020 Badge

Now in their seventh year, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards provide a platform to recognise and award products in the marketplace we believe offer great value to Australians.

For the 2020 Home Insurance awards, the Mozo Experts turned their attention to finding the best policies, assessing 62 home insurance policies available to Australian households.

“Your house is probably one of the biggest purchases you’ll make in life and with your prized possessions inside of it, it’s important to make sure your insurance policy includes the right level of cover for a price you can afford.” said Mozo Experts Choice Awards judge AJ Duncanson.”

“What a lot of people don’t realise is that what you pay for home insurance depends on a number of factors like your postcode, house size, whether you live in a high risk area and how much you choose to insure your home for. We conducted a detailed assessment of available policy features and price premiums of more than 50 policies and whether you’re looking for a good value policy or best cover available you can be confident that our list of award-winners are ranked among Australia’s best.”

A big congratulations to Budget Direct who have been awarded Value Insurer of the Year for 2020.

In addition to consistently offering low prices, Budget Direct’s policies also maintain solid cover limits which is why they took out our Value Insurer of the Year title.

Taking out Exceptional Quality awards for all three of the product categories we assessed - Car, Home & Contents and Landlord, made awarding NRMA as the Quality Insurer of the year for 2020 a very easy decision. 

With over 90 years in the insurance market and with a long-standing reputation, those willing to pay a bit more for the assurance of top level insurance cover, NRMA is the one to beat.  Even their products that offered regular benefits were still good enough to qualify under our Exceptional quality candidates!


Exceptional Value Home & Contents Insurance


There’s not a lot that is more valuable than the roof over your head, so it’s important to insure your property and contents should the unthinkable occur. But this peace of mind shouldn’t have to cost you a fortune.
