Contents insurance protects the belongings you have at the insured address: from your furniture and appliances to your BBQ and even your clothes, shoes and handbags. So, if any of the insured events happen during the period of insurance, we’ll generally pay to repair or replace your contents – up to the policy limits.
BankSA will cover your contents for loss or damage caused by an insured event both at your new and old address for up to 14 days after you first start to move. No cover is provided for loss or damage whilst contents are in transit (unless you have Accidental damage cover).
Cover for contents intended to be kept outside, like your barbeque, outdoor furniture and children’s play equipment up to $2,000 in total.
If your home building is damaged by an insured event and is unable to be lived in, BankSA will pay to move and store your contents for up to 12 months.
If your refrigerator or freezer breaks down and you lose your perishable food or medicine as a result, BankSA will pay for you to replace it. If you claim for this benefit, excess will apply. If the spoilage is due to a natural disaster (declared by BankSA, the government or the Insurance Council of Australia) the maximum BankSA will pay is $500. No excess will apply.

It’s up to you to decide the sums insured, and the type and level of cover that you want to take out. People generally want enough insurance to cover the property’s estimated replacement value. It’s important to have the right amount of insurance to cover the cost of replacing your home contents in today’s dollars if the unexpected happens. If you don’t have enough, you may have to cover some of the cost yourself and if you have too much, you may only be paid an amount that covers your loss. That's why we've provided these calculators. They work as guides to help you estimate the replacement value of your home contents. ^
If you purchased your Insurance before 12 December 2021, here’s where you can find more information about your policy.
1. Online discount When you buy a new home insurance policy online a discount of up to 10% is automatically applied to your first year’s premium including for Flood, and the following optional covers (if selected); Accidental damage, Motor Burnout and Portable Contents. This discount is not applied on renewal.
2. Minimum premiums If you are eligible for more than one discount, Allianz applies them in a predetermined order. This means any subsequent discount will be applied to the reduced premium amount after applying any prior discounts and the effect of the subsequent discount will be reduced. For example, the aggregate effect of applying two 10% discounts consecutively means that you will not see the full benefit of both these discounts. Discounts do not apply to taxes or government charges. Discounts do not apply to optional covers for Domestic workers’ compensation (if available and selected). Any discounts/entitlements may be subject to rounding and may only apply to the extent that any minimum premium is not reached.
3. Instalment premiums If you choose to pay your premium by instalments you do not pay us any more than if you pay your premium in one lump sum annually. The premiums payable by instalments may be subject to minor adjustments (upwards or downwards) due to rounding. Note: Your financial institution may apply transaction fees to instalment payments.
5. Only primary policyholders can see policies alongside their other BankSA accounts.
