Renters insurance

A renters insurance policy can provide coverage to either repair your insured contents or replace them with new ones; so you won't be hundreds of dollars out of pocket following an incident.

Protect your valuable belongings while you rent

As a tenant, it’s sometimes hard to know what contents you need to cover. If you’re renting a house, unit or share house and want to protect your belongings, you might want to consider taking out renters insurance. Landlords are responsible for insuring their rental property building and any contents they own. However, landlord insurance policies generally do not cover tenants’ contents – their furniture, whitegoods, electrical appliances, clothing, personal effects and other possessions.

A great claims service

We go out of our way to make the claims process hassle-free, and pay valid claims as quickly as we can. After all, you’ve got other things to worry about.

New for old

If your saggy old sofa is damaged in a fire or flood, we’ll replace it with a new one. In other words, with our new-for-old replacement there’s no depreciation on your contents.

A roof over your head

Worried about where you'll sleep at night if the rental property you live in is significantly damaged as the result of an incident? As a tenant, CGU looks after you, providing temporary accommodation for up to 12 months.
