You give coles insurance 5 star public only give 1.5

published

How can you give coles car insurance 5 stars when the public rate it 1.5 stars.
Your opinion means nothing.
It just makes canstar look stupid. The public are affected by poor quality insurance.
You rate 5 stars based on what....not public opinion.

So basically it means nothing to get a 5 star from canstar.
All that counts is what people think.
The price if that is what you go on is $350 higher than the last year.
They don't really offer much. How do you justify 5 stars for such poor insurance.

Reliable, unbiased and persistent.

The information provided I can rely on for accuracy. I find it both useful and, often, a prompt to check a few things out for my own situation. The emails come regularly enough to "irritate" me into taking some action, even if it is only to confirm something I'm already doing.

I really enjoy reading the information they provide, the topics are quite varied which is good because sometimes you learn something you didn't know you needed to know. They are my 'go to' for reviews. The reviews and articles are easy to read and informative.

A little confused

published

When I look at ratings, say for instance superannuation, the first choices that greet me are companies that pay for advertising. Confused. So, say, they were one of the companies listed to send Ltrs to their members as they have underperformed, would you still carry the advert?

You haven’t commented fully to my review. What happens if you advertise a company that has to inform the members to seek another fund as they have underperformed. Do you still carry their advertisement?

Some product is relevant

Some time product reviews doesn’t reflect broader reviews and it’s convince to buy the product looks like only certain communities and people is involved for their experience and views based on opinion

I have been looking into Term Deposit Rates and JUDO BANK stands out big time. I would like to know what checks and balances are done to ensure that this bank is sound. Like most people I would like a decent return on my money but I am wary as "if it looks to good to be true then!!!!

Hi Barbara, you may be interested to look into the Financial Claims Scheme, which is an Australian government guarantee that provides protection for people with money deposited in eligible accounts held with participating banks, credit unions and other financial institutions.

The scheme covers deposits (e.g. your savings) up to $250,000 per account holder, per institution in the unlikely event of the financial failure of an authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI for short). If this happens, the scheme aims to return deposits to account holders within seven days of the guarantee being activated.

Judo Bank is one of many ADIs participating in the Scheme. A full list of participating ADIs can be found on the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority’s website: https://www.apra.gov.au/list-of-authorised-deposit-taking-institutions-covered-under-financial-claims-scheme.

Canstar’s most recent Term Deposit Awards highlighted Judo Bank and BankVic as top providers for term deposits. You can read more about Canstar’s Term Deposit Award methodology and winners here: https://www.canstar.com.au/term-deposits/term-deposit-awards-2021/ and compare Judo’s current rates to other providers across a range of terms using Canstar’s term deposit comparison tool: https://www.canstar.com.au/compare/term-deposits/.

My suggestion would be to do some research on every insurance company you're aware of. I tend to use the product review site to help me find answers - so in your situation, I'd do a search for 'XYZ Insurance Company' and read all the reviews. If it hasn't been reviewed here yet, then search elsewhere. No one can ever tell you what the best this or that is for you - it ultimately has to be a decision you reach for yourself, based upon your own research and/or experience.
