Does my car insurance policy cover storm damage?
Last updated 28 March 2017
If you have Comprehensive Cover your vehicle’s insured for loss or damage caused by a storm, including hail and flood
You won’t be covered for loss or damage that’s caused by a storm, hail or flood with the first 24 hours of your policy commencing, unless:
- You’re renewing or replacing an existing policy and there’s no break in cover
- You’ve owned your vehicle for fewer than 24 hours before the policy commencing
You can find more information under the Insured Events Storm, hail or flood damage in the PDS.
