There are many companies that can provide insurance. Insurance protects people and things that you value
in the case of accidents or emergencies. Insurance is important if you have property or belongings of
value that could be damaged during an accident or emergency. This is particularly important if you own
a car or a house and it also applies to the items in your house.
An insurance policy requires you to pay premiums (regular payments). When your property and
belongings are damaged or destroyed, you will receive monetary compensation equal to their value.
There are several insurance companies operating in New Zealand and they can be found in the Yellow
Pages of the telephone directory. Information can also be found on the website of the Consumers Institute -
There may be times when you feel you have been duped or been conned out of money that you believe
you are owed.
If you believe you have not received a fair deal either with a business, a shop or a particular person, there
are several options available to you.
