Increase your odometer limit online for Drive Less Pay Less car insurance 

An easy way to avoid paying additional excesses with your Drive Less Pay Less insurance is to keep within the odometer reading you've nominated on your policy. 

If you've driven more than you planned during the year, don’t worry - as long as you let us know, you won’t be impacted if you need to make a claim. You can update your End Odometer Reading within My Insurance Portal. It's important to note that your premium may change when you make adjustments to your policy.

Why it's important to keep your 'end odometer reading' up to date 

When you purchase Woolworths Drive Less Pay Less cover, you will be required to nominate your 'start odometer reading'. The start odometer reading is how many kilometres your car has travelled at the time your policy starts.

As part of your Drive Less Pay Less policy, you'll also nominate how many kilometres you'll drive throughout the year. This is the maximum kilometres you think your vehicle will travel, and becomes the 'end odometer reading' for your policy.

When it's time to claim, if you've driven more than your maximum nominated kilometres, you're still covered but an additional Outside Odometer Excess will apply.

You can check the 'end' and 'start' odometer readings on your Certificate of Insurance.
