Your protection starts when you purchase the policy through the Zip app and is valid for 12 months from the start date. You can find your protection's start and end dates in your policy wording, which you can access through the Zip app.
To view your policy in the Zip app, go to the Pay tab, click ‘Buy Product Protection’, go to your ‘Active’ policies and click on the policy you want to view.
You can also view your wording by logging into your XCover account here
Your policy will automatically renew after 12 months, but you will have the option to opt out of the automatic renewal without cancelling the existing policy.
