Get real REAL INSURANCE having checked my statement it came to my attention that my partner and I both have contents insurance for the inside of our house insurance co didn’t pick up on this only found out when we were talking about direct debits so ring insurance co spoke to five ppl and they can not find my partners policy yet they take payment each month now we have to fax his bank statements to Sydney so they can trace it what a joke so what if we make a claim can we both claim or just one of us they won’t answer that question what about if we claimed for the same things ????????

  • It would serve them right if they had to pay up twice…..Cant see that happening!

  • You are kidding! How can they direct debit if they don’t even have the paperwork?

  • Bizarre. Paperwork and businesses always seem to be a problem.

  • So weird, but you should be refunded for all the payments you have made , that were doubled up.

  • Wow, that’s crazy!!! Just goes to show that the insurance company isn’t cross referencing their policies.

  • A simple solution would be to cancel the direct debits for a policy they cannot find and leave the one remaining policy. The financial industry ombudsman may be able to assist if they do not resolve your complaint.

  • Very unfair. They should refund you.

  • The other day i was get quote for all my insurances as they are all up for renewal. It was only then that i realised i had no paper work on our house insurance. A quick phone call and they emailed it to me. if anything happened to me my hubby would have know idea of who we were through for anything. I should do a if I die folder.

  • I would say that they should have to refund one of you the payments but I bet they don’t.
    They will say it’s your fault for not picking it up.
    Hope you get some answers soon.

  • They should refund for one as you can’t insure contents twice. I’d go to the Insurance Ombudsman if they don’t play fair.

  • Obviously your insurance company will only allow one claim, but I do agree that the company should have told you earlier of the situation.

  • oh wow that is not good at all, I would cancel both policies and go with someone totally different.

  • I would be angry if I were you as well. I hate it when companies make an error and then make it your problem.

  • I hate it when you realise a company has made an error, but you have to fight to get them to realise it!

  • In that case currently if something happened you would both be able to claim IF you could provide BOTH your policy details.
