If your house has been broken into and a window has been broken or a lock removed, leaving your house accessible for anyone, you are able to have the window or lock fixed, to ensure that your property is secured. You are able to do this before an assessor has viewed the property or the claims team has contacted you. Make sure that you keep your receipt as TIO will reimburse you for the cost of fixing the damage inflicted in the break-in, if the claim proceeds.

1. Minimum premiums may apply

Any discounts/entitlements may be subject to rounding and only apply to the extent any minimum premium is not reached. If you are eligible for more than one, we also apply each of them in a predetermined order to the premium (excluding taxes and government charges) as reduced by any prior applied discounts/entitlements. Discounts may not be applied to the premium for any optional covers, including flood (where relevant).

2. 72 hour waiting period for loss or damage occurring from cyclones, storm surge or floods

As the Territory is subject to catastrophic weather events, it is necessary for us to apply a 72 hour waiting period for loss or damage occurring from cyclones, storm surge or floods. This means if you arrange new insurance or make a mid-term alteration such as increase sums insured, you will not have cover for these events until 72 hours after purchase or alteration.

3. Optional disaster cover

Only available in conjunction with buildings cover. Following a significant event that causes widespread property destruction, like cyclone, earthquake or flood, it is common for building costs to increase significantly in line with demand.

If you select Disaster Cover, we will increase the sum insured on your buildings by 30% for covered loss or damage caused by a named cyclone (including storm surge), flood or earthquake (including tsunami).
