We understand that occasionally issues may arise and you may have a complaint. We take complaints seriously and have a process through which we seek to resolve them.
Hearing or communication needs
The first thing to do is talk to one of our consultants or email us about your concerns. Our consultant will try to resolve your complaint to your satisfaction and if not, escalate it to a manager.
The consultant or manager will attempt to resolve your complaint within 5 days. If more time is required we will let you know and respond within 15 business days of receipt of your complaint.
Call us on: 1300 265 374 (Weekdays 8am-9pm and weekends 8am-6pm AEST). Please note that public holidays may affect opening hours.
If you have already tried Step 1 and we have not resolved your complaint to your satisfaction, you may request the matter be referred to our independent Customer Relations team for review.
Customer Relations is an independent team and will treat your complaint as a dispute. Customer Relations will assign one of their team members to conduct an independent review of the matter. They will contact you with a decision usually within 15 business days of receiving your dispute.
Call us on: 1800 045 517 (Weekdays 9am-5pm Mon-Fri AEST)

If you have already tried Step 1 and 2 to resolve your complaint and are unhappy with the decision, you may wish to seek an external review. Customer Relations will provide you with information on external review options, such as referring you to the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).
Please note that AFCA can only assist if you have already tried to resolve your complaint by talking to the Customer Relations team.

You do have a say in what your standard excess will be. This amount is set when you take up the policy and cannot be changed during the policy period. There are other excesses that may apply in the case of a claim – to find out more please refer to our Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).
You can cancel your policy at any time by contacting our call centre on 1300 265 374, a cancellation fee may apply. If you pay your policy annually you may be entitled to a refund of the unexpired portion of the premium, less any cancellation fee and non-refundable government charges.
