House insurance premiums

Posted in Insurance Data

THIS PAGE HAS NOT BEEN UPDATED SINCE EARLY 2011.

It is being made available only for archival purposes, and reflects the situation prior to the Christchurch earthquakes.

It does not reflect current premium rates or coverage. Do not use it for current reviews.

 

IMPORTANT: Following the Christchurch earthquakes, the cost of all house and contents insurance nationwide will rise substantially. It is expected that the rates listed on this page might rise by about 50% over the next few months, although the relative levels will probably stay similar.

We are reviewing this data, but given the uncertainty of individual rate changes it may need to be withdrawn soon.

In the meantime, it will still be useful for features, and for relative price positioning.
