About the authorised representative or distributor

If an authorised representative or distributor of ours arranges this policy:

  • they will be acting with the authority of CIL Insurance and be our authorised representative or distributor, not your agent, in all matters concerning this insurance,
  • they will receive a commission, and
  • neither the authorised representative, distributor nor any of its related companies guarantees the benefits payable under the contract.

Important information

It is important that you:

  • read all of the PDS before you buy this insurance product to make sure that it gives you the protection you need, and
  • are aware of the exclusions, conditions and limits on the cover provided and the amounts we will pay you, and the excesses that may apply to a claim.

Some words used in the PDS have special defined meanings. The definitions of these words can be found in the Terms Explained section.

For the policy limits:

  • some of these will be stated in the PDS (these are our standard policy limits), and
  • the remainder will be stated in your policy schedule.

Cooling off period

After you take out this insurance or renew your policy for another period of insurance, you have 30 days to consider the information in your PDS. This is called the ‘cooling off period’. If you wish, and provided you have not made a claim, you can cancel your insurance within 30 days from the day cover began or was renewed. We will then refund in full any money you have paid and you will not be able to make a claim.

To cancel at other times, please see “Cancelling your policy”.

Exclusion for new business policies

We do not insure you for any loss or damage caused by flood, a named cyclone, bushfire or grassfire occurring within 72 hours of the start of your policy, unless your policy commenced:

  • the day you bought your caravan, or
  • immediately after another policy covering the same caravan expired (the policy did not expire if it was cancelled) without a break in cover.
