We realise that the needs of our customers are constantly changing and when it comes to paying bills you need a fast and efficient method of payment. At Zurich we try to make things more convenient by providing a number of alternative payment options.

You can pay by:

  • Cheque/Bank Draft
  • Credit/Debit Card
  • Direct debit instalments through our Starplan facility.

    This plan gives you the option to pay your premium over monthly instalments.

    A deposit of 15% of the premium is required for first time applicants. The remainder of the premium is payable over 9 monthly instalments.

    After the first year, premiums can be paid over 10 equal instalments. No deposit is required for renewable business.
