Mozo snapshot

With Westpac’s home and contents insurance there are three levels of cover to choose from, Essential, Quality and Premier. Both Essential and Premier Care Residential cover scooped up awards in the 2020 Mozo Experts Choice Awards! Premier Care for Exceptional Value and Exceptional Quality Home and Contents Insurance and Essential Care for Exceptional Value. All levels of care provide cover for storms, fires and theft.

Key features

No matter what your home or contents go through, from fires to glass breakage and explosions, it’s safe to say that Westpac’s Residential Care home and contents insurance has got it under control. 

All three levels of cover provide cover for storms, lightning, floods, fires, theft, malicious acts and up to $20 million of legal liability. Cover for items such as jewellery, sporting equipment, artworks and CDs and DVDs is included with Essential, Quality and Premier Care. However, how much you are covered for will vary depending on what level of cover you choose. For instance, for jewellery and watches Essential Care will cover you up to a maximum of $3,000 per claim, whereas Premier Care will cover you up to a maximum of $20,000 per claim.

Premier Care even provides up to $10,000 worth of cover for gardens and landscaping. Although it should be noted that Essential and Quality care do not. Both Premier and Quality Care provide up to $5,000 worth of emergency accommodation cover for pets.

It should be noted that power surges, identity theft, any stock or inventory and uncut gems will not be covered.

Any catches

While Westpac Premier Care Residential aims to provide a bulletproof policy, keep in mind that they don’t offer cover for identity theft. 

Also keep in mind that what you are covered for, will depend on what level of cover you choose.
