Compare Guru
2016-08-17
It is hard to decide on who is the best and who is the worst car insurance company in South Africa. But at least with the Ombud’s annual complaints report, you can make an informed decision.
Who is the best and worst car insurance company? The Ombud for the Short Term Insurance industry can help answer this with their annual report. 

Percentage of Short-Term Insurance Complaints 

The total number of complaints in 2015 showed a 5% decrease from the previous year. From nearly 10 000 short term insurance complaints received for the year, just under 50% were for motor insurance.

At Times, Insurers Intimidate Consumers

The Ombud also noted some worrying trends of unfair treatment towards the consumer. Specifically, in the industry as a whole. There trends were:
  • Policy drafting in unclear language
  • A general lack of consumer understanding of the precise nature of motor cover
  • Unreliable state laboratory tests on legal alcohol limits that were then used to repudiate (reject) car insurance claims
  • Intimidating or aggressive insurance assessors trying to bully people who lodge claims
