Is it time to update your home insurance coverage to protect against flood, fire and theft?
Check whether your current home insurance coverage provides the level of protection you need to help protect you against financial loss from extreme weather events and opportunistic thieves.
Devastating floods, severe storms, summer bushfires, golf ball-sized hail and even earthquakes… if the past few years have taught Victorians anything, it’s that the next extreme weather event can happen at any time.
While extreme weather poses health challenges and can even cause the loss of life, the increasing severity and frequency of extreme weather events also has implications for the way we protect the things we own and treasure the most, such as our homes, contents and motor vehicles.
In particular, the transformation of Victorian homes to places of work, education and entertainment in the wake of pandemic means that home insurance coverage for homeowners, landlords and renters should be strongly considered.
“Home insurance helps provide protection for what’s important such as your home and contents, in case of an insured event like fire, flood, storm or theft,” explains Kirsty Hayes, Head of Home & Business Insurance at RACV.
“It gives you peace of mind and confidence that if something unexpected does happen to you, like an extreme weather event, you’re able to get back on your feet.”
