Service network coverage of 99.6% of postcodes within 100kms of a capital city in Australia and New Zealand is a service coverage calculation based on the number of repairs per month with less than 1 per cent “GAP” area (i.e. where a repair agent is unavailable).
Our customers get
Unlimited claims against accidental damage and common faults (e.g. limescale and blockages)
Monthly installments with no annual upfront fee and no fixed-term contract
Cover against theft
Award-winning customer service and a dedicated Australian-based call centre
Enhancing customer loyalty

Our monthly payments allow customers to choose their period of cover and cancel at any time. This removes the annual upfront costs of the traditional extended warranty model. With the flexibility to cancel anytime, customer loyalty has improved significantly – we've seen around 40% of monthly pay customers retaining their policies beyond five years.*

Better value for our customers

In 2019, 99.2% of customers covered by Domestic & General products had their claims resolved^. This is just one example of us providing value and peace of mind for customers. We’ve also made sure that our monthly pay insurance programs include features that customers actually need. With accidental damage, theft, and common faults covered, customers have comprehensive protection when they need it.

Our retail partners get
Broad coverage of appliance categories, ranging from accidental damage to theft
Partnership with a trusted, experienced insurance provider
Approved repair agents who are monitored for service quality and customer satisfaction
Doing more for our retail partners

Our in-house local call centre gives us better control of our service levels. This, alongside our evolving repair management system, enables our retail partners to have better visibility of their customers’ experience. All of our repairers are appropriately selected to make sure they have the public liability required. That way, we make sure the 2 million appliances that we cover get the best possible care, including authentic parts wherever available.

Retail partners benefit long-term

Monthly pay insurance programs foster longer customer relationships, and retail partners enjoy multiple long-term benefits from the program. This can result in a considerable increase in partner revenue both from commissions and indirect sales from replacements.

*40% of Domestic & General’s monthly pay customers remain on book for over 5 years.
