New Contents policies
Tower does not currently provide the optional benefit for Gale, windstorm, hurricane, or cyclone cover on any new Contents policies in Vanuatu.
Existing Contents policies
- If you have an existing Contents insurance policy without Gale, windstorm, hurricane or cyclone cover, you will not be able to add this optional benefit.
- If you have an existing Contents insurance policy with Gale, windstorm, hurricane, or cyclone cover, you will need to contact Tower prior to the policy renewal date and engineer's cyclone certificate expiry, for this optional benefit to be considered for renewal. It is your responsibility to ensure that you acquire and submit a new valid engineer's cyclone certificate for your house prior to its expiry and prior to the policy renewal date.
It can be difficult to know how much any specific item is worth, especially after you've owned it for a few years. As a rule of thumb, consider how much it would cost to replace your contents. Not just your electronics and jewellery, but your clothing and kitchen utensils.
To help you estimate this cost, look at prices for similar items. Be aware of sales while you do this. To be safe, always use the standard retail price.
Damage to your contents through daily life, ageing and normal wear and tear is not covered.
We will cover contents of the named policy holders and their family members who live at the same address as you. If you have flatmates, boarders or guests they will need to have their own contents policy for any items that belong to them.
