Insurance gets personal

Faced with increasing choice when it comes to car insurance one insurance company has taken the plunge and is offering consumers the ability to pick and choose exactly what sort of cover and additional protection they want and the ability to adjust their excess and the value of their car.

Said Real Insurance CEO and Managing Director of Hollard Australia Group, Richard Enthoven: “The beauty of our Build Your Own approach is that it gives consumers the ability to pick and choose exactly what they want. More importantly it gives them the flexibility to play around with the options in order to adjust their premiums to fit their budget.

“Whether it is basic cover, comprehensive cover, third party or a pay as you drive option for those who drive less kilometres than most, people have the choice to leave out or add on as much additional protection they require.

“We believe consumers should have the right to be in control when it comes to buying their insurance. With this in mind, as you build your insurance cover option online you can see, in real time, exactly how much it will cost as you add or subtract different elements of cover or as you adjust your excess and vehicle’s insured value.

“Effectively we have given Australian consumers more choice, more control and as a result more savings options than they’ve ever experienced in the insurance sector. We’ve taken it a step further by giving them new and additional options such as bike and pet cover.”

Customers using the Real Insurance Build Your Own car insurance product have access to a range of extras. These include: windscreen, third party property damage, collision, theft and malicious damage, natural events, fire, new for old vehicle replacement, lifetime guarantee on repairs, the ability to pay monthly at no extra cost, an agreed value, emergency repairs and towing costs, personal property cover, trailer and caravan repairs, emergency travel and accommodation costs, emergency repairs, lock and key replacement, transit cover, substitute vehicle cover, child safety seats and prams, pet, bike and 24/7 roadside assistance.

Consumers who insure their car online could save up to 15%.

Real Insurance policies are backed by the Hollard Insurance Group, one of the world's leading insurers, with more than 6.5 million policies worldwide.
