Insured in 3 minutes
Rather than taking 30 minutes to get you covered, we can do it in 3 minutes. Honey’s technology identifies info about your home like size and number of rooms, to help make getting you covered faster and simpler.
Cover the right stuff
Take the guesstimating out of contents insurance. We couple the info you give us with data about your home to help you select the cover that works for you. We don’t expect you to be an expert in insurance – that’s our job.
Made for all places
Wherever you keep your stuff, Honey has you covered. Working from home, living with a flatmate, moving house, it’s all good. With our standard cover and extras, we can protect your precious things when mishaps happen.

Smarter questions you can ask about renters insurance
What is renters insurance, and why is it important?
Renters insurance can cover the contents within a home, including all of your valuable belongings following an insured event. This includes protection of your contents from unpredictable weather and the impacts of cyclones, floods, storms and bushfires. Renters insurance also protects you against things like theft, damage and legal liability.
What am I covered for?
Renters insurance covers your contents against loss or damage as a result of an insured event. For a full list of the insured events we cover, please refer to our Product Disclosure Statement.
My contents aren’t worth that much. What is the point in having insurance cover?
Another way of thinking about this is to consider the cost of replacing all of your items, rather than just their current value. In the event of a claim, and if you need to replace all your items, you may not have the money available to do so. This is why it’s recommended to have contents insurance.
What insurance should I get if I am a tenant?
We offer smart insurance for renters that’s as flexible as your living situation. Wherever you keep your stuff, we have you covered. Working from home, living with a flatmate, moving house, it’s all good. With our standard cover and extras, we can protect your precious things from things like storms, theft, and accidents – even when you take them out on the town.
How much should I insure my contents for?
We aren’t able to provide you with advice on the replacement costs of your contents or how much to insure it for. Instead, we use the information you give us and data sourced from third parties to recommend an amount of cover you should have. You should use this recommendation as a guide.
Your contents sum insured should include items such as fixtures and fittings (e.g. carpet, blinds, curtains), furniture, electrical goods, and all personal items. Items of value that you want to list on your Certificate of Insurance – such as jewellery, media or artworks – should also be included in the overall sum insured.
We recommend that you use a contents calculator to determine independently an appropriate sum insured for your needs, which you can then compare to the guide provided by us during your quote.
