Rest assured, your contents insurance will continue to cover the belongings you leave at home while you're on holiday. If you're going on holiday within New Zealand, the contents you take with you will be covered too.
It's important to note that an additional excess will apply if you are away from your home for more than 60 days. This excess will apply from day 61 of your home being unoccupied and only applies if you need to claim for any items kept at your home. The unoccupied excess is $1,000 and is noted on your policy schedule.
If you're traveling overseas, our contents policies are unable to provide cover for any belongings you bring with you. However, our partner product AA Travel Insurance does have policies available to cover your belongings while you're overseas.
