QBE has made it possible for you to enjoy a range of discounts on your premium:
The more secure your property is – through deadlocks, window locks, and either local or monitored alarms – the less you may have to pay.
Continue to earn a no claim bonus discount, up to our maximum level, the longer you go without making a claim.
An excess is the amount you’ll need to pay if you make a claim. You can tailor your premium by choosing an excess of: $100, $250, $500, $750, $1,000, $10,000 or nil excess.
If you’re retired and no longer working more than 20 hours a week, your premium will reflect the lower-risk nature of your circumstances.
If anyone named on your policy is over 50 and no longer working full time, you can enjoy an additional discount.
