Premium Theft by Aviva

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by mcadef Sep 25, 2019
...I have, soon to be 'had' home and auto insurance with RBC - Aviva Insurance for well over 15 years. In order to jack up their rates, they'll terminate your policy for a made up reason and then re-quote you as a new customer without the long-standing good credit customer 'discounts'. To terminate my existing insurance they sent a letter with a blank form via regular mail to be completed with all my personal information with instructions to send it back by regular mail no later than September 15th. The letter is dated August 13th during prime vacation season when people are away. I received it and called them immediately the next day on September 5th to confirm if this was not a fraudulent request, they validated that it was true. During that same call, I asked if I could complete it online or email it because it contains a lot of personal information. They said no, only new customers can use the online service that I just need to complete it and mail it. I completed the form and put it in the mail that same day, September 5th. With 10 days to go, I didn't think much of it. Today, I received a registered letter that because the form was received by them September 18 they will cancel my insurance when this current policy expires. I can't speak to or guarantee Canada Post and their timelines of delivery. But this is how Aviva chooses to operate in order to terminate your insurance. There is nothing incomplete in the form... it is just 3 days late. And my policy expires in over a month, so there really is no issue. In the same breath they then offer to sign you up as a new customer ...over the phone/online with all that same personal information with a much higher premium. What's most frustrating is that customer service will admit that they see on my file that I called on September 5th and confirm that the context of my call was to validate the form and if I could email or complete it on line. I'm sure all carriers have their issues, but this is simply pure fraud to jack up their premiums/income. The service representatives on the line were sympathetic, they know they can't do anything about it... they're just doing their job...

Terrible Terrible Company

...I have the same experience as most other people. After paying premiums for 15 years, my car insurance was cancelled after a no-fault accident and now my house is in cancelled because of a $10,000 flood claim. They downgraded my driving rating to a new driver for a no-fault accident. This company is not accredited by the better business bureau and I'm surprised that RBC associates themselves with such unscrupulous business practices...

...Aviva raised my rates for 3 cars and home from $2100/year to $3360/year and demanded full payment upfront. I have a driving and credit rating that would make a veteran police officer look like a punk kid. Some of us didn't deserve this, life is hard enough...

Stay Away from this company

(1.0 out of 5 stars)

...Would give less than 1 if possible. Must be said that AVIVA/RBC are the same. Have had nothing but nightmares dealing with adjusters (Never call back or answer emails, send incorrect info, etc). We lost our cars due to a tornado and took 4 months to get things resolved. But the latest just kicks the bucket. My daughters insurance (perfect driving record, no claims) went up 48% because they decided to remove the typical discounts that are available everywhere else such as Student discount, multi-vehicle discount, web quote discount, winter tire discount. We have been with them for almost 12 years. Will be moving to another company (4 cars, 3 houses). Unbelievable how this company does not care about its clients...

62% increase Car rates 2019

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Daveb Aug 31, 2019
...As a family we have two vehicles with Aviva and we have no claims, no tickets ( perfect driving records), are both over 64 years old and out of the blue our new insurance rates have gone up 62% year over year with ‘no’ explanation and less than one month to explore all options. Customer service has no explanations except to blame all other drivers for this increase and no empathy or care for their clients. We have been with RBC for over 15 years and will now explore how to explore the appropriate changes in advance of the 2020 renewals as we look to change. Too late for this year but rest assured our house, cottage and vehicles will no longer be with Aviva next year. Please check carefully your policy renewals and start the process of finding the right rate in a very confusing industry with only corporate profits as the motive for change...

Did you know that on average Ontario drivers with good driving records pay $1,805/year in auto insurance? Is your insurance rate higher? Get a free car insurance quote and start saving today.

Cancellation notice

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Scollier Jul 30, 2019
...Thank you RBC and Aviva Insurance... after 28 years with RBC Insurance and now Aviva they cancel our insurance because my 24-year-old son was driving 140 in a 100 zone on a 400 series highway....yup, going way too fast for sure. He is 24 and his only ticket, no tickets or accidents for my wife and me or accidents. I estimate over 28 years we have paid over $236,000 in premiums for our life insurance, home, rental properties and auto without a single claim....currently we pay a tad over $1,000 per month in premiums with Aviva for all of our business....absolutely blown away that for one mistake over 28 years, we are dropped at renewal date. Isn't insurance for when you make a mistake or have a claim? After speaking with RBC, the operator said " thank you for calling RBC and we value your business " lol, they simply do not care about relationships...oh well, I am sure another provider will value having our auto, life, home and rental property policies...
