You don't have to tell us if your house is unoccupied for a short period of time – you'll still be covered. But please let us know if your house will be unoccupied for more than 60 consecutive days. An additional excess may apply if your house in unoccupied for an extended period.

New House policies
Tower does not currently provide the optional benefit for Gale, windstorm, hurricane, or cyclone cover on any new House policies in Vanuatu.
Existing House policies
- If you have an existing House insurance policy without Gale, windstorm, hurricane, or cyclone cover, you will not be able to add this optional benefit.
- If you have an existing House 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 prior to its expiry and prior to the policy renewal date.
Damage to your home made through daily life, ageing and normal wear and tear is not covered. However, we do cover you for gradual damage caused by water leaking from a concealed water pipe, tank or hose. Limits apply.
We are pet lovers too, and know that from time to time they are not always as well behaved as you may like. Unfortunately, our policies don’t cover damage to your house or furnishings caused by your pet.
