I have started my insurance in 2014 for $ 460 comprehensive and now I am about to renew the insurance for the same car $728. I would not have any clue how they work out the price? As the car depreciate in its value every year but the insurance is getting appreciated How? unlike Health insurance that they are not paying for maintenance unless at the time of an accident. I have no claims for the last 3 years. is there anyone can make it clear for me, please? Ta

My parked car was recently hit by another car. the other driver did hit a note. I have a market value policy and according to Redbook the private price guide is between $3,800 to $5,600. The car has very low kilometers and excellent condition and yet I was offered a substantially lower offer from the assessor to scrap the car. Can any one advise how to get a fair value? Ideally I want the car to be repaired and the repairer quoted $4,500 for the repair. I am happy to keep the car for another ten years. It is a beautiful car to drive and I have fixed everything and put in four new tyres recently.

Just got a call from Coles insurance confirming the offer to settle the claim. They somehow plug a figure of $2,750 for the vehicle and have to deduct $700 for the unpaid balance of the annual premium. I have since written to them that I would not accept anything less than the mid figure of $4,800. There is only one car on the market for $5000. I believe I am being very reasonable and I will stick with my figure and take legal action if necessary. Be very aware of market value policy and these unpaid premium business. I am not at fault at all and I seem to be out of pocket by thousands of dollars. I probably would have better off not having insurance at all and demand the other party repair my car. I thought that your comprehensive insurer is supposed to be on your side. Not giving up without a fight.

For a comprehensive policy, would I be entitled to claim if the car is on a parking lot and damaged by an unknown hit-and-run vehicle?

I would love to know after reading one complete page of "peoples terrible experiences" with Coles car insurance, how the hell are Coles allowed to operate ANY INSURANCE whatsoever!!! Surely Fair Trading know about Coles Insurance and their sneaky operations trying to manipulate people. Come on Fair Trading, pull your finger out and get rid of Coles completely as an insurer!!
4 answers
Good question. Although I rang then when renewal premium arrived and got a new insurance provider it hasnt stopped them sending me messages to renew. The sooner someone gets rid of them the betterHi Helen you must understand, if fair trading started proceedings against Coles insurance, it would take them years to clean them up because of the amount of claims on feedback alone!! JohnI simply would not go past either NRMA or GIO for car insurance. That's it!!

Did Coles car insurance from the start have a loading on top of the base premium for "pay by the month"? I was under the belief that they did not but was informed by their phone support people that they have always charged extra for this service. It is not itemised on any policy renewal documents I have but now is clearly shown on any online new quotes. Could it have changed with past takeover by IAG?

Hi Phill, our Insurance pricing is set by IAG and reflects the increasing costs of providing insurance cover. We are confident Coles Car Insurance remains competitively priced with a great range of benefits.

My wife had an accident and she had a head injury and was taken to hospital by emergency services. Her car was completely damaged due to the hit from back by another truck. We gave them reference number given by the cops and I was told by coles customer care that they cant get incident report from Victoria Police. If all insurnace company can get information from Victoria Police why not for coles insurance?

Email to complaint to financial ombudsman service. Email them whatever has happened.Consult your solicitor.Hi Inda, we're sorry you've had a difficult experience with us. Please respond to our private message if you'd like for us to look into this for you.Yes... I am facing the same situation. A car with COLES insurance hit my car. The guy accepted the fault and informed the Coles at the time of lodging the claim in front of me. When I called to get an update and to repair my car, Coles telling me that I have to wait till they get the excess from their customer. Bloddy Joke?? That is their problem, we are third party, if they are at fault need to act quickly to rectify the issue. Still I am waiting for an answer almost week gone, I am spending $57/day every day for hire cars.
