Muckup on their end this time.

published

Been with AAMI for 7 months now, never had an issue with my payments. There's always been money in the bank, for them to deduct the payments automatically. Wokeup this morning to an email, the payments been declined for insufficient funds LOL. Checked my bank money still in it, so had to manually process the payment through. If it wasn't AAMI fault, then I apologize. Only leaves one culprit then, Westpacs been messing around with my pennies ...tsk tsk tsk.

5 stars for the person in Melbourne 1 star for the call taker in the phillipines

published

Always been with AAMI and they are great. They are competitive on price for long term customers HOWEVER. They Now have call takers in the Philippines I almost left them because of this. They are hard to understand and even thought they try they can't trully empathise with a fire that has consumed my fence.

Update: went with Budgetdirect which saved me almost $500.
Went through fine print on both contracts and the cover is very similar and completely adequate. Now looking at shifting home and contents insurance from AAMI to Budgetdirect.

Could be better

published

EDIT! I think all the insurance companies are much the same. Make sure if you get Comprehensive Car Insurance with AAMI you buy the unlimited (it is 21 days at most though) hire car, it could save your butt. They could be better with communication, some of their phone operators need to learn how to read files properly (more training), they need to call you back if they accidentally hang up on you after leaving you on hold for 30 minutes. The "free taxi" service they offer actually involves you paying for the taxi and them reimbursing you, which seemed more trouble than it was worth.

There are probably worse insurance companies tbh. Would be nice if they all improved their service considering how much money they make off us.

Does NOT offer vehicle towing

published

Bought AAMI roadside assist along with the insurance. They were the most affordable I could find, but one day my car was bogged in sand and I called roadside assist, and they said they don't do bogs. They do flat batteries, flat tyres, but not bogs. I had to call RAC and sign up with their roadside assist to get unbogged. I'm going RAC in the future.

Have no branch, hard to contact.

published

Initially the policy was good value for money and used to go into the branch to pay and talk about the policy, ever since branch closed down, hard to contact people over the phone about claims and policy changes. wait for ages and sometimes not even helpful.

Three Claims

published

I made a few claims (kangaroos) and had no real dramas. Would have been nice if they'd rolled the first two into one as the car hadn't been repaired yet and I hit the second roo in exactly the same part of the car two weeks later.

I made my claim over the phone , they switched to operator within one minute.
Operator was not rude,answered all of my questions. At first time, I arranged a report . At the second time, I arranged claim and rental car as my policy covers rental car.

I hope the remaining part of my process proceeds as smoothly as it can.

May 13th 2016 Update:
Today, I bring my car to capital smart.inspector, receptionist were friendly, it took me 10 minute to finish assessment
As I have car rental provision, they arranged me taxi . There is no problem at all.Aami provide me good service up to now.

it always needs a push

published

Everyone I think how this company works is to push HARD, bargain HARD, TRY VERY HARD

I have been an aami customer for years and had 2 claims, 1st one was an easy one as I was under the 3rd party policy

2nd one under full insurance, car got stolen, need to call them like EVERYDAY to PUSH the process. At the end I got paid out and haven't been waiting for long. It was all about PUSHING I think, without the work I couldn't got solved that quick.

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!!!

Car Insurance - Comprehensive

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?

AAMI Car Insurance

Details

Underwritten by the Suncorp Network, AAMI offers four car insurance policies: CTP green slip for NSW, ACT and SA, Comprehensive, Third Party Property Damage Only, and Fire, Theft and Third Party Property Damage.

Points of praise for AAMI:

  • AAMI's top score was given for its timeliness in responding to claims.
  • Friendly and personable customer service was appreciated. Two customers reported AAMI ‘going above and beyond’ by helping them generously during times of financial hardship.
  • Multiple reviewers reported that AAMI offered to organise Ubers from the repairer to and from their homes. Others enjoyed a smooth and hassle-free experience when making claims, with quick response times from AAMI.

Pain points with AAMI:

  • AAMI’s chosen repairers and roadside-assist contractors were thought to be low quality
  • Premiums increasing considerably even with no claims being made (this increase in premiums appeared to also apply to customers who had taken out multiple policies with AAMI, e.g. home and contents insurance along with car insurance).
