Always a loophole
Have home insurance with them, doesn’t cover electrical faults or accidental damage.
Seems you’d be lucky to have it cover anything, we had a hot water system explode. No cover, we had damage someone else’s animal, no cover. Changing to a decent insurer today.
They charge you cancellation fees of $40.
Also, it is not through Auspost, Insurance is through Auto & General Insurance. I had home insurance with AusPost for almost a year. They increased the premium from $40 to $47 straight & it is expensive than my current insurance provider (which has more cover). When I canceled the policy, AusPost charged $40 terming it as early cancellation fees.

Know better, choose better.
it may be cheap but you get what you pay for
this was a complete waste of time and money.
I had flooding downstairs from a big storm.
I advised them over the phone. before they came out I had to pay for someone to look at it. and if they considered paying out I needed to pay them the excess outright which could have been $1000?? I've never known an insurance to do this??? I didn't bother. I changed my insurance straight away.
Fast and Easy Sign Up
I have used Australia Post Insurance to insure my car for the last few years, and always found the service efficient and fast. So I decided to use them for my Home and Contents insurance. The whole process was done via the Internet, and the price that I obtained for my cover was well under what I was quoted by my previous Insurance Company.
I haven't made a claim, and hope that I never have to, but if the standard is the same as they offer on their Car Insurance then I am not expecting any problems.
Dishonest and Unprofessional
And that's the only good thing I can say about my experience with this organisation.
I change my insurers every year. This year I did my usual search for a suitable Home & Contents insurer and Aus post came up as the cheapest but only when I factored in the $100 'complete stranger sign up bonus'. 'What's that?’ I hear you ask mimicking the real life insurance advert. Well, we all know that corporate Australia couldn't give a tinkers cuss about existing customers, loyalty does not exist in their vocabulary, if you can't spend it, can't measure...
