    Hi Anna,
    I can’t point you toward any specific company – but I wanted to share some very useful words that came to us recently from someone who has years of experience in the Insurance Industry. You will hear that from his words and the ideas he has presented here for us.

    I was astounded on first reading his comments, and I am happy to point you to them, so you too can be more aware of “what to look for” when hunting down insurance.

    Personally – I’d stick with the larger companies. I went with a cheaper/smaller one once and it was a massive hassle trying to make a claim (they persistently tried to avoid paying out when the evidence we had was quite strong).

    Cheers

    The key is understanding that cheap doesn’t equal good. Insurance profitability vs likelihood of making claims – so if they’re offering cheaper premiums where are they making the money?

    There are still good cost effective options out there – but the number 1 thing you should be looking at is what you’re actually getting for your money in terms of the PDS.
