Nearly made me homeless

(2.5 out of 5 stars)
by Cross Jul 08, 2019
...Had an 89 Toyota Tercell back in 1995 and was in a car accident that nearly ended my life. I was on comprehensive coverage and it was like pulling teeth to get my claims from them. They were so slow with the claims process that I had to force my injured self back to work to make ends meet. Nearly reinjuring myself again in the process. What a terrible way to take someone's money and do not return the value of the car back to them for so long a time. Shame on Wawanesa, I will never go with them again. I remember calling so many times to check back with them and they kept giving me the brush off and a bunch of excuses that made me feel that I was forgotten. Promising me 2 weeks, then 3 weeks, etc. Disgusting...

If you have a good driving record in AB, you should pay around $110/month (women - $105/month and men - $113/month). Do you overpay? Get an Alberta car insurance quote to start saving.

Wawanesa refuses to help me

(1.2 out of 5 stars)
by Abandoned by wawanesa Jul 04, 2019
...I am a US citizen, female travelling alone on a road trip in Canada. My car was broken into, windows broken, and all my belongings and passport and money was stolen. I called Wawanesa immediately to report it. They said it was a glass only claim because they don’t cover anything but just the glass. I have been on the phone with Wawanesa every day since then, for 5 days. I call the US Wawanesa to help me and they say they can’t help me because I am in Canada (they cover Canada), so they give me the Canadian Wawanesa number to call (Wawanesa is a Canadian company), I call them and the representative actually angrily hung up on me after telling me that I was not his problem because I have a US policy. I call the US side back and they also say they cannot help me. And this has been happening for 5 days while I am SLEEPING IN A CAR WITH NO WINDOWS, while it rains and I am open to being physically assaulted. If anything happens to me, it is WAWANESA FAULT. There have been some kind and understanding phone representatives, but still after 5 days NOTHING has been done. I keep continually being volleyball’d back and forth between the Canadian and US Wawanesa claims Departments and no one will help me at all...

Delay due to system upgrade.

(1.5 out of 5 stars)
by Annoyed insured. Jun 29, 2018
...Had requested a change in policy back in April/18... it is now June and no changes have been done. My broker "Westland Insurance" advise me that Wawanesa is having a system upgrade... Due to the delays I cancelled the insurance beginning of June.. and guess what.. they did not cancel the they owe me 3 months worth of adjustments. Terrible service...

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.

Withheld policy 3 weeks later

(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by One unhappy lady Mar 08, 2018
...3 weeks ago we went to the local all set up, even was given our temporary slip. We then went and had our car plated (we just moved from another province) which we could not do until we had Alberta insurance. THREE WEEKS later we get a phone call telling us our policy is being withheld due to an outstanding balance owing to another insurance company until it is paid (we were not aware of this owing but neither here nor there in this matter... so long story shortened... we got insured (or so we thought), they allowed us to drive around not knowing that they had put our policy on hold for 3 weeks! What if we had an accident or just got pulled over??? We would be in big trouble and it would be their fault! Not impressed at all. This should have been told to us way sooner than 3 weeks. At this point, I don't understand how they can legally even do this...
