Premium Theft by Aviva

(1.0 out of 5 stars)

...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...

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.

...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...
