Hassle-free insurance renewals
Insurers often change the terms and coverage of their policies yearly, without much notice or you realising. If you dig to the bottom of your email inbox, you’d probably find an email inviting you to “Read the updated PDS”…
Like most people, you probably renew the policy and pay thinking you’re covered… Little do you know, the insurer may have increased their price and offered slightly less cover.
According to a Consumer Action Law Centre (CALC) study, 86% of Australians would find clearer information about their premiums in renewal letters helpful.

Frequently Asked Questions
Your insurance needs will change frequently while you hold your policy. Your yearly renewal is a great opportunity to re-evaluate your needs, update your details, and make sure you’re not over or under-insured.
Under the Insurance Contracts Act 1984, you have a duty to not make a misrepresentation. If you do, your insurer could use that against you to reduce or deny your claims entirely. This means it’s important to ensure the details on your policy are accurate and up to date.
Your business, home and vehicle are some of the greatest investments you’ll make in your lifetime. It’s important to ensure there aren’t any nasty surprises in the event you need to make a claim.
It can be easy to forget what changes have occurred throughout the year. While we recommend updating your broker at the time of any changes, these questions can help keep your policy up-to-date when renewing your insurance:
- Are you offering any new goods or services?
- Does your company store or exchange customer information?
- Has your business’s legal structure changed?
- Do you expect your revenue/personal income to change?
- Have you purchased or sold property or equipment?
- Have you renovated your home or changed your business fit-out?
- Has your building or home value changed?
- Are your property/ies insured for full replacement value?
- Have staff numbers changed?
- Do you use subcontractors, or has your use of subcontractors increased/decreased?
