Contents Insurance Star Ratings Summary
CANSTAR has rated 120 home and contents insurance products from 49 providers.
You can use the Canstar contents insurance comparison table to help you find the best insurance policy for you. The table enables you to compare Australian insurers online and provides information on important contents insurance features. Our five star products have been determined through a value based weighting of both product price and features against a set of profile criteria outlining level of cover and location.
When it comes to insuring contents only in 2014, CommInsure and OnePath have both repeated last year’s success as National award winners. Both insurers offer an outstanding combination of price and features. CommInsure has taken out the state awards in south Queensland, South Australia and Tasmania and OnePath has taken the prize in northern Queensland and Victoria. Both providers placed highly in each other state as well. A standout feature of both is the generous item limits available on things such as jewellery, laptops and electrical items. At the state level our contents insurance winners included ANZ insurance, OnePath, Suncorp insurance and Comminsure.
Our rating methodology is transparent and extensive, aiming to provide consumers with as much of a market comparison as possible. The methodology compares home, contents and combined home & contents insurance in Australia and accounts for an array of policy terms such as: accidental damage, accidental breakage, flood cover, storm cover, ease of claims process and item limit information.
