Comminsure Boosts Home & Contents Insurance Features And Flexibility

14 December 2004

CommInsure, the Commonwealth Bank’s insurance arm, has added new features and adopted a more personal approach to home and contents insurance to give customers more options, choice, flexibility and ultimately a more tailor-made solution, designed to suit their own life situation.

CommInsure’s Managing Director, Peter Beck, said new and updated features, including age-based rating, choice of claims excess, and loyalty premium discounts, give customers more choice and control over their home and contents insurance.

"It’s all about customers paying the right price for insurance that meets their needs as individuals. For example, unlike many of our competitors, we don’t have our best rates kick in only at age 55 - we aim to give the customer our best price as soon as they deserve it, rather than making them wait", Mr Beck said.

Similarly, CommInsure’s new range of claims excess options provides greater flexibility. Customers can now trade a higher claims excess for a premium reduction.

"CommInsure wants to reward our customers for their business with lower premiums and flexible, contemporary policies. By introducing all these options, we are providing more choices to match customers’ individual needs now and over the long term, and we’re providing better customer service," Mr Beck said.
