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 No Claim Bonus discount, up to our maximum level, the more years you go without making a claim.
Your excess is the initial amount you have to pay yourself if you make a claim, and we offer options of nil excess, $100, $250, $500, $750 $1,000 and $10,000. The higher the excess you choose, the lower the premium you’ll pay.
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.
