Temporary accommodation expenses benefit

There is a difference to note between the Temporary accommodation expenses benefits with house and contents insurance. Here's a run down. 

House

You can purchase the Temporary accommodation expenses benefit with our residential house insurance. This benefit is extended to pay your reasonable temporary accommodation expenses up to $25,000. This includes kennel or cattery fees for your pets so that everyone is taken care of.

This benefit provides cover if your house is listed on your certificate of insurance as residential and

  • suffers loss or damage for which a claim is accepted or which is covered under EQCover

and 

  • your house is uninhabitable as a result. 

No temporary accommodation expenses will be paid after repairs have been completed or your claim has been paid.

If you have this benefit with us under any other policy then the maximum amount we will pay for all policies is $25,000.

 

Contents 

With our contents insurance, the benefit is automatically included for you. This is referred to as a standard benefit. This benefit is extended to pay your reasonable temporary accommodation expenses up to $25,000. This includes kennel or cattery fees for your pets.

This benefit provides cover if your contents:

  • suffer loss or damage for which a claim is accepted or which is covered under EQCover

and 

  • your house is uninhabitable as a result 

No temporary accommodation expenses will be paid after repairs have been completed or your claim has been paid.

If you have this benefit with us under any other policy then the maximum amount we will pay under all policies is $25,000.
