  1. If you are insured with Vero through the Vero brand you are generally eligible for up to a 10% multi-policy discount. The discount is applied to the company premium and natural disaster premium for each of the Eligible Insured Assets. The company and natural disaster premium will be displayed on your policy schedule.
  2. The multi-policy discount does not apply to fees, levies or GST which may be charged on the premium for the Eligible Insured Assets. The multi-policy discount is applied to the premium before fees, levies or GST are added.
  3. The multi-policy discount does not apply to premium charged for the Excess-free Windscreen and Window Glass Optional Additional Benefit. 
  4. The multi-policy discount does not apply to premium charged for the Accidental Damage to Contents, Cover anywhere within New Zealand, or Replacement Value for Contents Optional Additional Benefits.
  5. The multi-policy discount applies once the period of insurance for any Eligible Insured Asset overlaps with the period of insurance for at least one Qualifying Insured Asset.
  6. The multi-policy discount applies to all Eligible Insured Assets from the time when the Qualifying Insured Asset is insured with Vero.
  7. If you no longer have at least one Qualifying Insured Asset, you will no longer be eligible for a multi-policy discount on any Eligible Insured Assets. The multi-policy discount will be removed from the premium charged for any Eligible Insured Assets that remain insured with Vero at our discretion. The multi-policy discount may remain on the policy and only be removed at the next renewal for any remaining Eligible Insured Assets.
  8. Where a policy for Eligible Insured Assets is changed mid-term because of a change in circumstance, such as a change in the insured address, and this results in a change in premium for the Eligible Insured Asset, the multi-policy discount will be applied to the policy change and subsequent premium change.
  9. The Qualifying Insured Assets and Eligible Insured Assets must all be insured as personal policies or as trust or business policies. A multi-policy discount does not apply where:
    1. one Qualifying Insured Asset or Eligible Insured Asset is insured under a personal policy and the other is insured under a trust or business policy; or
    2. one Qualifying Insured Asset or Eligible Insured Asset is insured under a trust policy and another under a business policy
  10. Each Eligible Insured Asset has a minimum premium threshold (‘Minimum Premium’) which is the lowest premium that can be charged for the insurance cover for that asset. The Minimum Premium changes depending on the type of asset insured and the type of cover selected. Any discounts applied cannot reduce the premium for an Eligible Insured Asset to less than the Minimum Premium. This means that the multi-policy discount may not be applied in full or at all in the following scenarios:
    1. Where the premium for an Eligible Insured Asset is already at or close to the Minimum Premium;
    2. Where other discounts applied to the Eligible Insured Asset, such as no claims discounts, staff discounts or other discretionary discounts, result in the premium for an Eligible Insured Asset reducing to the level of or close to the level of the Minimum Premium;
    3. In rare cases, where the premium for all Eligible Insured Assets is already at Minimum Premium, the multi-policy discount will not reduce the premium at all.
