    Default Comprehensive car insurance

    I'm searching for a good car insurance company. Df is getting a new work car this week and we aren't happy with our last insurer. I've been looking at online reviews for a few companies and they all have mixed reviews so it's not really helping much.

    Who would you recommend?

    Thanks!

    H was with NRMA and swears by them- never had a problem in all the years he was with them.

    We are with AAMI and have found their prices very reasonable and they've been easy to deal with when we've needed to.

    We switched from RACQ to Suncorp last year, after being with RACQ for almost 10 years. Suncorp are slightly more expensive for us (between 2-5% extra) but we were happy to pay this for what we deemed as better coverage.

    I'm with RAC (WA arm), and I have never had any issues with them. They were great when I had an accident earlier this year (that was CLEARLY not my fault).
    Really happy with the price as well.

    We are with AAMI for our home and one car. We will change the other car over as we got insurance through Allianz through the car dealership.

    I find AAMI great to deal with, always talk to someone on the phone and their prices have been better for us.

    Make sure you read the PDS and know what you are and are not covered for.

    NRMA came out cheapest for me. I haven't had an issue yet but I have not had to make a claim or anything yet either

    Thanks everyone! We are already with AAMI for contents insurance and business insurance so was leaning towards them for car insurance too. Good to hear others have had good experiences with them.

    It's tricky with all the reviews online being so mixed.

    Thanks again 😊

    You will probably find you will get a discount if you already have other insurances with them too.
