How to make changes to your cover

Need some help making changes to your online policy?

Please note you can only make changes to an active policy. If you have set up an inactive policy incorrectly, simply cancel and you will be fully refunded (if cancelled before start date) and redo a new quote. You cannot change from a monthly policy to an annual , but you can change from an annual to monthly policy upon renewal.

Where to start?

You first need to log into your initio dashboard, either click on the “Login” button in the top corner, or click here. Once you have successfully logged in, you should see your dashboard with any active policies listed.  If you need to make a change to a policy simply click the circled “Make a change” button from the right-hand side action menu.


Changing cover?

Click on the “Cover” button to make changes to your policy. After you have made your changes,  click ‘confirm’ at the bottom of the page to proceed to the confirmation and payment sections, where you will either be refunded or required to pay a difference based on the changes made.



Update policy type

Not living in your own home anymore and have turned it into a rental? Simply click on the property description drop down box and change it to ‘Rental Property’. Need help deciding what policy type you require? Contact us.


Update cover selections

Need to increase your replacement value or adjust your excess? Here’s where you can make these types of changes.


Review and confirm

Review your new cover details under ‘Confirm Change’, the smart quote system automatically adjusts the price of your policy according to your changes.  If a refund is due we will process this within the next 1-3 working days.



You can make more than one change at once. Each time you make a change, the premium will recalculate and show you any difference in cost (calculated upto the policy renewal date). If you change your mind, cancel the transaction and no changes will occur. If you want to proceed with a change, click confirm and pay the additional premium (or confirm the refund). Alterations take effect immediately. A current certificate of insurance is also available on your dashboard.

Changing Insured Name or Interested Party

Click on the “Insured name” or “Interested party” buttons.  Select whichever Interested party applies (select ‘other’ if yours is not listed) and enter either your name, company or trust name (whoever owns the property) as your Insured name then click ‘Submit’.



After making changes, your online certificates and documentation will be updated and a copy sent to your registered email address.
