Here are 5 essential things that should be discussed before taking out cover:

  1. Make sure you disclose to your broker all material information with regards to your current and previous insurance history. This includes all claims, as well as those paid out of your own pocket.
  2. The person who drives the car the most must be the person noted on the policy as the primary driver.
  3. When it comes to items that are taken out of the house, make sure you have the out of home cover that protects them.
  4. Make sure that you know what the minimum requirements are for securing your home and implement them. For e.g. the minimum requirement is burglar bars on opening windows, and security gates on external doors; alternatively a linked alarm.
  5. When it comes to claiming you need to prove your loss. Keep all slips, and certificates for items you have purchased.
