Why AAMI has my comprehensive car insurance increased by more than $140 dollars since last year from $343.40 to $487.84 for this renewal??????? I haven't paid it yet and feel inclined not to. That is a ridiculous increase!!!

I had a trolley driver damage my car while it was parked. 'Hit and Run' situation and there is shopping centre video evidence showing what happened. However, AAMI in their wisdom have decided to deem that the excess paid to have my car repair will not be refunded on the basis that I did not provide the at-fault person's details? How could I as I was not there when this happened. Seems like a clever way to avoid the work involved in clearing me and going after the trolley-company contractor's insurance company to pay for my damages. It this not part of the Insurance service?
How do you decide who is at fault for collision
It goes by the road laws. For example, if the other person was supposed to give way and you were already in the intersection, then the other person is at fault.
Hi Wendy! Well it depends if you think fault of the other party, of course they will fight for you but it needs justification. Proof thanks

My car is a VX Comodoore 2001 model agreed value of $3200. I hit a kangaroo and sustained minor panel damage. If I submit a claim and pay $695 and the car is written off (told by AAMI that this will be the case because of age of car), I will request a price to get the car back, then put second hand panels on it and use the car. If I get to the point of requesting the buy back price of the car and then I consider it to expensive AAMI have just told me I cannot cancel the claim and the car is no longer mine.
The question is at what stage can I cancel the claim, get my deposit back and drive the roadworthy car?
I pay thousands of insurance to aami each year having 3 cars several houses 2 businesses
I am absolutely in the service of my car claims that I need for one of my businesses
first they had me being responsible for car rentals as they didn't advise the car rental place and keep them upto dates with repairs
now I am doing paperwork and going through bank statements and have realised that the claim was made on the 18 nov 2018 aami took out 695 excess from my bank on the 22 nov 2018 and then at the completion of the job also took the 695 excess from the payout figure that was left to pay out the car
so I in fact have paid two excesses for one claim and now am on the phone arguing with them if I will get it back
they have made an illegal debit of the excess on my card provided for monthly payments after I specifically said no I would pay excess when I pick up car which I did
48 mins now on the phone and they are arguing with me that they don't have to pay back 695 which is all clearly stated in bank statements and invoices and also they can see on the computer they did take the illegal payment out
I think we have made a big mistake being with this insurance company after we were also ripped off by gio and now I find out they are the same really
just ridiculous I will be changing the rest of my insurances
They all are from a same boat mate.
My car was written off and aami charger me for the excess, remaining registration (11 months) and remaining insurance money(7 months).
I also was with them 3 years so in total i ended up paying more than they gave me $3500.
I was told by aami rep when a claim is made we still have to pay excess until its proven that we were not at fault regardless if the other party admits fault or not.
But after more than 17 years I will never look at aami again. They lost 2 house insurance ( my mum and me ) 3 cars (my mum, me and my partners)
All because of the horrible service they gave. "No loyalty when you're with aami" should be the slogan
My car ran out of rego last week was just about to re register and it got hit my hail
Today badly I have full comprehensive insurance am I still covered???
That is absolutely untrue trojan horse, but I do appreciate the laugh from your misspelling of whether, considering the question. If the car was parked on private property at the time it was damaged then you are covered. If you were driving at the time, or even parked on a public road, and they know it was unregistered, they will not pay and will have the legal right not to as it was not legally allowed to be on the road and you were actually committing a crime when it was damaged. Apart from the PDS probably stating you must have registration on it to make the policy valid, I would imagine it won't take long to find the clause stating that you are not covered if you are committing a crime at the time the vehicle is damaged. I recently insured an unregistered vehicle and it was pointed out to me that until it was registered, they would only pay any claim where it was not on a road at the time (eg. it got stolen from my driveway or weather damage while parked in the driveway like in your case). On a side note, I would pay closer attention to keeping up on registration. You could be pulled up 60 seconds after it runs out and the fine is $600 upwards here in SA. Also, no matter the circumstances of any accident, you are at fault and not covered by insurance. Some hole in a Mercedes rear ends you at the lights while not paying attention because he is counting all his money while sipping his latte or something, and suddenly you're the one struggling to pay off a luxury car, never having actually owned it. Hardly worth risking over the effort involved in setting an alarm on your phone to repeat every 3 months, say 1 week before your registration runs out, or something similar to remind you. Regardless, you'll be fine since the car was stationary in the driveway, right? *wink*
Can pay off my car insurance monthly?
Instead of it, being in one big payment
Hi Samantha. Yes you can. I do. When you are signing up, during requesting for quotation, you can select annual or monthly payments. Check their website or call them if you can’t find it.
Yes you can. On renewal it tells you the price of the monthly option and you can call them to arrange it. You do save money paying annually.
But you could have got the correct answer by contacting AAMI
Why is aami so slow to respond to hail damage incident? Almost 4 weeks and no contact.
If they sre so busy why not organise manpower to cope with demand. Also give the option to go to a repairer that is not so busy.
they are slow because they don't care they are just interested in taking your money
So you already know that this is not the AAMI website and you know that they don’t respond in this forum.
As you have made no mention of contacting them directly I can only assume that your concerns are rhetorical.
I would have posted in the Review section.
What is SMART Auto Approver?
Not sure where you read this. There is a company called Capitol Smart where aami sends cars to as the first stop for repair. Invariably all are told it takes 3 days only. But they only do simple body work. Any major damages the car will be sent to other auto repair shops.
Thank you Samw!
Hi I'm being threatened that someone might steal or damage my car tonight I just got car and don't have insurance and it's not in my name I don't think yet but I want insurance to cover me this second how can I get this done?
Any insurance company will give you insurance immediately and there’s usually a 30 day cooling off period. Gives you the chance to lock something in now but then shop around in case you can get a better deal elsewhere. Does the owner of the car have insurance? If you are a named driver on their car you’re covered anyway. If you haven’t lodged the car sale transfer papers yet technically I’m guessing it still belongs to the previous owner and his/her insurance.
