If you need your contents insurance policy to include cyclone cover, you must provide us with a cyclone certificate for your house.

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.
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.
Important information: Tower contents policies are underwritten by National Pacific Insurance (American Samoa) Limited trading as Tower Insurance.
