Key features

Westpac’s Residential Care contents insurance will protect your belongings in a range of circumstances. Insured events include storms, lightning, flooding, fires and theft.

You might also be happy to know that Essential, Quality and Premier Care provide emergency accommodation cover. Emergency accommodation cover for Essential Care is capped at $5,000. While for Quality and Premier it is up to 10% of the sum insured or the cost of accommodation for up to 12 months, whichever one works out less.

Plus, if you have furry friends, Quality and Premier also provide up to $5,000 worth of emergency accommodation for pets. Quality and Premier also provide cover for emergency storage of your contents and cover for contents in a commercial, storage facility. It should be noted that Essential Care does not provide cover for either of these.

Premier Care also provides up to $500 worth of veterinary expenses cover and up to 20% of the sum insured for contents in transit.

When it comes to protecting your contents, you can rest easy knowing nearly all of your standard household items will be covered. Things like cameras and their accessories and other valuable items like jewellery are covered. Although it should be noted that the level of cover you receive, will depend on which level of cover you choose. For instance, while Quality and Premier come with no limit of cover for sporting equipment, cover with Essential Care is capped at $2,000 for these items.
