Buying insurance online

You might use our Website to find out more about us and our products. But if you decide to buy online then there are some important things you should know.

Buying insurance online is a two stage process.

Firstly, you should apply for an online quote, by providing the information requested on our quote pages. Subject to our underwriting guidelines, we will then give you a quote, and a quote number. You can save that quote and we will honour that price for up to the next 60 days.

If you decide you want to purchase an insurance policy online, based on that quote, and we offer you that option, you should provide us with the information requested, and submit a request to purchase. Stage two is complete when:

  • Our server has received the electronic instruction offering to purchase insurance from us; and

  • That instruction is recorded within our database, your application is accepted by the insurer, we let you know, and we show your new policy number on the screen you have been using to apply for insurance. You will know that we have entered into a binding contract with you, when you have received your policy number. If you haven't received a policy number from us, then you won't have purchased an insurance policy with us.

Purchasing an insurance policy using this Website involves you sending an electronic instruction to us, making an offer to us to purchase insurance, and then our decision to accept that offer. Once that has happened, we will notify you on the screen you have been using to apply for insurance. We will assume that an electronic instruction is authentic. We have no obligation to authenticate the person issuing or transmitting the electronic instructions, or to verify the accuracy or completeness of the electronic instructions. We may act on the electronic instructions sent or received through our Website, without any reference to you.

Any insurance policy purchased via this Website must be paid for by one of the credit cards we accept. Before you buy, you will need to provide us with either:

  • Type of credit card

  • Card number

  • Name of credit card holder; and

  • Expiry date

The amount or amounts due must be paid in full by clear funds by the due date. Details of your payment plan will be provided with your policy documents.

Product information

Any application for insurance made using this Website is subject to compliance with your disclosure obligations, our approval process and the terms and conditions of the insurance policy which are set out in our Product Disclosure Document. You should read the relevant Product Disclosure Document available from this Website before making any decisions regarding the products.
