Savings account advise
Used Canstar to source the best Bank to use for a high interest savings account, heard the name a lot, saw it on the news, assumed it would be an objective source of information. Highly disappointed, after several hours of research on two banks that you have awarded and recommend as your top choices for savings accounts, I find that the general population deem these banks to be something out of their nightmares! Both banks had an ungodly amount of reviews for extremely poor customer service, poor technology and an unwillingness to rectify issue...s brought to their attention for years. I almost trusted Canstars advice and opened an account online, got the gut feeling it was a little too good to be true, thank god I second guessed that decision! Saved myself a whole lot of trouble. Want everyone to know that your service is sham and should not remotely be considered good advice!

I reviewed various travel insurance options via Canstar. I purchased a product recommended by Canstar however it was $13.69 (10%) dearer going via their link as opposed to going directly to the insurance provider.

But in my case I was charged for the service which I request be refunded by Canstar. I would recommend using their service to compare products but once you decide go directly to the provider rather that clicking on the Canstar link.
I will never make that mistake again !!
more constar than canstar
surveys by canstar are private and nobody knows how they conduct their "surveys"
perhaps they just called a few of their mates
Constar gave RAC travel insurance 5 stars
Our own experience with RAC insurance is the opposite: I found them to be liars and downright thieves
They constantly make false and misleading statements and commercials.
Take their current TV commercials where they spruik being "local"
When you make a complicated travel claim they are anything but local. We called their help line but from then on we were transferred to their ...
