...Don't use Aviva insurance. Very unprofessional and terrible customer service! I've been with Aviva insurance for about 6 months now. When I signed up with my visa debit card, just like I did with my last car insurance company, I also pay several other bills without any issue. Well, in August I couldn't figure out why my payment hadn't been taken out on the 16th. So I waited a few days thinking they are just late taking my payment out. So on August 20th, I called to find out why it wasn't taken out yet. The guy says it's against their policy to accept Visa Debit they needed my checking account info. I said that everything was fine, however, I disputed my 50$ NSF fee. Because I had the funds in my account and it was their mistake to not inform me that they don't accept Visa Debit when I started the account. So he said he'd wave the 50$ fee. So in September, I called to give them a change of address and give them my bank info. The agent informed me that my policy would be an extra 500$, which is ridiculous, to begin with, but I agreed. As far as I'm concerned that's a verbal contract. I get my new policy today and it's a 546$ increase. That's an extra 46$ more than I agreed to. Continuing with that 2nd agent, at the end of the call she told me my amount owing for September was 50$ more than usual. Without getting a chance to respond, she hung up. So I called back immediately, realizing the mistake. The first 2 calls I got through to an agent in less than 20 min. I waited an hour before I could speak to the next agent. So, they've obviously flagged my number now. Anyways, I finally talk to an agent and informs me that I still have the NSF fee from August. She tells me they can only way to wave the NSF fee if I show the bank documents. She didn't give me an email address or anything to send the bank documents. Something the first representative should have said to me in August and it would have been dealt with. Being very frustrated now, I asked to speak to a manager to straighten this out. She informs me that she doesn't have a manager available. I said to her I pay good money for your services and it's unprofessional not to have someone to deal with this. She said the only thing she could do is make a note and have her manager call me back. Being a Friday Monday was the soonest I could get a callback. Monday was when my insurance was due. So I ended up paying the 50$ fee. Waited all week for a callback. I had one voicemail that I couldn't understand, which must have been them. So today I got my new policy in the mail with the extra 46$ added to my policy and still having paid the extra 50$ last month. So, I called today to deal with it again. Another one hour wait on hold. As soon as I get an agent, I insisted that I speak to a manager. Apparently, the manager isn't available again. The agent I was speaking to was one of the most condescending people I've ever spoken to. Spoke to him for about 30min. By the end of our conversation, he was literally mocking me. I worked in customer service and sales for a couple of years. I know my rights as a consumer. If it was anyone else besides the insurance company I would be compensated with free services. Which I've done several times in the past! Not to mention I would have been fired on the spot if I talked to anyone like that. If someone knows a good place where I can post this I would really appreciate it. This kind of customers service should not be tolerated...

...It was very stressful dealing with this company. So hard to get a hold of them, they take their time to reply or don't reply at all given that the circumstance is Urgent. The people I dealt with are very unprofessional and rude. They did not pay me the value of my car, ended my rental and refused to extend it, they have no sense of communication and on top of that, it took them 6 months to send a check after the fact that I agreed to their settlement. If I could give them 0 stars I definitely would. I would not ever advice any of my friends, family or associates to go with Aviva. Not even my worst enemy...
