You can make the full payment when purchasing your policy or, depending on our underwriting criteria, you may have the option to place a downpayment followed by monthly instalments.

If you are given the second option, you can choose a downpayment amount of 15%, 20%, 25% or 30% of your total policy cost. The remaining balance will be due over 10 months via monthly instalments.

If you choose to pay for your insurance in installments, you will have to pay a down payment upfront. We ask for a minimum 15% down payment of your total annual premium to begin a policy with us. The total left to pay is divided into 10 installments and paid in arrears. This means that you are paying for the month after you have received cover for it. Once your premium has been paid in full, your down payment will cover you for the rest of your policy.

So, let’s look at an example. 

If you have an annual premium of $5,000 and pay the minimum 15% down payment, you will pay $750 at the time you purchase the coverage, with $4,250 premium left to pay.

$425 will be paid each month over the next 10 months with your down payment covering the cost of your final 2 months of coverage.

If you have any further questions about this, please contact us:

*Please note that your premium and payment amounts are subject to change based on any endorsements made to the policy (or during the policy period).

You purchase your policy quickly and easily via our app through our secure payment system.
