Where you can go

published

I've been browsing insurance companies today. As always, I check reviews submitted on product review, too. Consumers, if you are having issues with your claim contact the Australian Financial Complaints Authority. It is a free and independent service to assist with the resolution of consumer claims.

Super easy claim

published

Just had a super easy claim experience for personal electronics which I appreciated . Lodged Wednesday and received a call on Thursday. No hassles with the claim (noting I had already provided the required evidence) and staff member was very friendly and helpful.

Good customer service, but inexplicable rate increase.

published

Very easy and professional phone assistance.
But I started this policy 1 year ago, and the renewal premium just increased by 25%!
I have never filed a claim, so no comment in this regard.

28 years of cover

published

We have had our house and contents insured with GIO for about 25 years and have had several claims all have been resolved in a reasonable time frame and to our satisfaction with minimum fuss. Workmanship has been very good on most occasions. Policy price has certainly increased over the years but isn't excessive.

GIO claim service was friendly, proactive and helpful.

published

Our home was significantly damaged after the Berowra Heights 20/12/2018 hail storm.
GIO was friendly, proactive and helpful - During the claim process.
The face to face presentation organised by Suncorp, for hail damage affected customers, was excellent.
I have spoken to a number of Berowra residents affected by the hail storm. The Suncorp customers I have spoken with seem happy. There are a number of non Suncorp customers, quite unhappy.

Fast claim resolution

published

Yesterday my expensive glasses broke while cleaning. As I have insurance for portables I've decided to claim it. Today, they've deposited money into my account for the claim. They were very nice. They've accepted quotation from my optometrist even though they are using different one. Very happy with the outcome.

Questions & Answers

mickscottasked

I would be very interested to hear from somebody at GIO about their reviews here and what I consider a very poor rating of 2 stars from 122 reviews . Does this even concern anybody at GIO ? It concerns me to think my family has been paying thousands of dollars every year for the last 45 years for what seems to be second rate insurance . Very disturbing for a staunch loyal 45 year customer .
