About buying insurance online
WHO CAN BUY INSURANCE ONLINE?
Only Australian residents are eligible to buy insurance online through us.
HOW CAN I APPLY?
You can apply for an online quote by completing and submitting the information requested on our quote pages (Quote Application). Provided we have the requisite information, we may issue you a quote on behalf of one or more insurers (Quote).
If you decide you want to purchase an insurance policy online based on a Quote, and we offer you that option, you will need to provide us with any further information and confirmations requested and submit a request to purchase (Insurance Application). Your Insurance Application is complete when it is recorded within our database and is accepted by the Insurer.
We will let you know when your Insurance Application has been accepted by providing you with a confirmation email containing a transaction reference number. If you don’t receive a confirmation email from us then your Insurance Application has not been accepted. If your Insurance Application has not been accepted then we may contact you using the details you have provided, or you can contact us on 02 8623 4000 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we will assume that an electronic instruction is authentic. We have no obligation to authenticate the person issuing or transmitting the electronic instructions or to verify the accuracy or completeness of the electronic instructions. We may act on the electronic instructions sent or received through our website without any reference to you.
Any application for insurance made using this site is subject to disclosure obligations, an approval process and relevant policy terms and conditions.
HOW CAN I PAY?
Any insurance policy purchased via this website must be paid for in full upfront by one of the credit cards we accept, by electronic funds transfer (EFT), by BPAY or by monthly instalments via a loan through Hunter Premium Funding.
If paying in full by credit card, you will need to provide us with the following details:
- Type of credit card
- Card number
- Name of credit card holder
- Expiry date
- CVV (upon request)
If you choose to pay via EFT or BPAY, you can find the payment details on your invoice.
The amount or amounts due must be paid in full by clear funds by the due date.
Details of your payment plan if you choose to take up our premium funding option (if applicable) will also be provided with your policy documents.
For your convenience, we seek your consent to store your credit card details for future renewals, unless you let us know otherwise by following the procedure below.
By providing credit card details to us, you confirm the following:
- you are the cardholder or have express permission from the cardholder to save and use this card; and
- you authorise us to charge the applicable amount to the credit card to renew your policy;
until you let us know otherwise in writing.
Automatic renewals using your stored credit card details will generally be processed on the inception date of your renewal policy. We will send you a reminder about our intention to auto renew your policy using your stored credit card details as part of your renewal package which will be sent at least 14 days prior to renewal. A subsequent reminder will be sent to you at least 7 days prior to renewal. Please contact us at least 3 business days prior to your renewal date if you do not wish to renew using your stored card details so that you avoid any unnecessary fees or charges. If there are any issues with charging your card on file, we will likewise be in contact with you to let you know.
You can otherwise opt out of paying your renewals using your credit card details stored on our file, or update your credit card details, by contacting us at any time at: (02) 6190 0958 or email@example.com.
Please note that if you elect to pay your renewal by any other method (such as BPAY or premium funding) or let us know you do not wish to proceed with renewal, we will cancel the auto renewal authority using your stored credit card details.
Pay by the Month: Premium Funding Loan Rollover
We may offer to arrange a premium funding loan to help spread the cost of your insurance premiums over the year via our alliance partner, Hunter Premium Funding (HPF). Your premium funding loan arrangement is a loan agreement between you and HPF and is subject to HPF’s terms and conditions, as agreed by you.
Where you elect to pay by the month using premium funding, you automatically appoint Aon as your agent for the purpose of arranging future funding on your behalf as set out in our FSG, until you let us know otherwise by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us at 1800 702 738. This means that on renewal we will automatically arrange on your behalf for:
- Hunter to issue and provide to you via Aon Direct, subject to continuing loan approval, an updated payment plan based on the policies that are due for renewal, together with any other policies from time to time as part of your renewal package, at least 14days prior to expiry of your existing loan; and
- your renewal policy to be paid using a rollover of your existing premium funding arrangement with HPF unless you let us or HPF know in writing that you do not wish to renew funding by contacting us at email@example.com or calling us at 1800 702 738.
Automatic renewals using rollover of your rollover premium funding arrangement will generally be processed on the inception date of your renewal policy. We will send you a reminder about our intention to auto renew your policy using your premium funding arrangement with HPF as part of your renewal package which will be sent at least 14 days prior to renewal. A subsequent reminder will be sent to you at least 7 days prior to renewal. Please contact us at least 3 business days prior to your renewal date if you do not wish to renew using your rollover premium funding arrangement so that you avoid any unnecessary fees or charges with both Aon and HPF, in which case we will cancel the auto renewal authority using your funding arrangement.
Important Information about Auto Renewal
Please note that standard policy renewal terms and conditions apply for auto renewals via the processes set out above.
If you have opted for premium funding, any rollover is also subject to ongoing loan terms and conditions as set out in your loan agreement with HPF.
Each renewal is a separate policy, not an extension of the prior policy. As part of the renewal packages we send you, we will remind you of your legal duty of disclosure and request that you review and update your renewal and coverage information if needed. If no updates are required, you do not need to do anything if you have consented to the auto renewal processes set out above as we will automatically renew on those terms and deduct/charge the new renewal premium from your credit card or by applying your new rollover loan via HPF on your behalf, unless you tell us not to.
Please contact us if you do not wish to take up any renewal offer. Similarly, if we are unable to offer renewal of your policy, we will let you know in writing.

- NSW Stamp Duty Exemption: You may be asked to provide a declaration about your eligibility to claim the NSW Stamp Duty Exemption. The NSW Government amended the Duties Act 1997 (NSW) (the NSW Duties Act) to provide a stamp duty exemption for eligible small businesses on certain insurance products taken out on or after 1 January 2018. If you are considered a small business, you will not be required to be stamp duty on:
- Commercial vehicle insurance – for a motor vehicle used primarily for business purposes;
- Commercial aviation insurance – for an aircraft that is used primarily for business purposes;
- Occupational indemnity insurance – insurance covering liability arising out of the provision by a person of professional services or other services (other than medical indemnity cover within the meaning of the Medical Indemnity Act 2002 (Cth)); and
- Product and public liability insurance – insurance covering liability for personal injury or property damage occurring in connection with a business or arising out of the products or services of a business.
The above list may be modified from time to time, you should check Revenue NSW’s website for an updated list of eligible insurance products.
To obtain the benefit of the exemption you must be an eligible small business. In summary, you are a small business if you are an individual, partnership, company or trust that:
- is carrying on a business, and
- the business has an aggregated turnover* of less than $2 million.
* Aggregated turnover is your annual turnover plus the annual turnovers of any business entities that are your affiliates or are connected with you.
If you are unsure whether the definition of small business applies to you for the purposes of determining your eligibility for the stamp duty exemption or to view the most up to date listing of insurance products that are eligible for the tax relief, visit Revenue NSW’s website for more information or obtain qualified tax advice. Aon is not able to provide tax advice, such as whether you are eligible for the stamp duty exemption.
If you believe you are eligible, you must provide an acceptable form of small business declaration to your insurer or your broker on behalf of the insurer by following the instructions provided to you from time to time.
It is your responsibility as the insured to determine your eligibility for the exemption. Your insurer will rely on this declaration in applying the stamp duty exemption for small businesses on relevant insurance products in NSW. If you claim the small business exemption and are not entitled to it, you may be required by the insurer to pay an amount equal to the duty, together with any interest or penalty tax payable. The insurer may recover this amount as a debt if the amount is not paid. You may also be liable to penalties under relevant laws. Neither Aon nor your insurer is responsible or liable for incorrect or dishonest declarations.
A new declaration is required at each renewal period to satisfy legislative requirements.
