Fraud

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by R.L. Sep 05, 2020
...They are stalling my auto for the past two months when there is none of my fault my car was stolen from the street and all they are doing is nothing! My adjuster is ignoring and blocking my calls. I don’t think anyone keeps a check on the employee's call records. Moreover, the adjuster never called to provide any information. They promise a rental but they don’t provide it and they will stall and stall and cut their monthly payments...

Do not get this insurance.

...Do not get this insurance! In the recent hailstorm that hit Calgary this June 2020, I was if not first one from the first people that started the claim, the rain was still falling, all the neighbors couldn't believe what was going on and I did my claim right away. Well, today July 7th my car is just going to start getting fix, all my neighbors cars are fixed or claims settled. We have the worst adjuster we had ever dealt with. She never called us, we had to do the entire process by ourselves, she is useless, to the full extent of the word!!! We had to follow up with the entire process, she never called weeks pass and we never hear from her. Every time I had to call the tow company, to get a rental, to tow it to the other repair facility, and so for. Having this adjuster and nothing is the same! In July 2nd we called the call-center to ask about what was going to happen to our rental (because the adjuster didn't do her job at all and nothing was getting done! We did all the calls and followed up, thanks to us the car is getting fix, not the useless adjuster) that 10,000 claims were made is not an excuse, other insurers did by far a better job than this 3 people together. Worst customer service ever. SO in the call center, the lady said "Don't worry honey, I have been doing this for 25 years, I will extend your rental 1 more week. Then the next day at about 4 pm someone called and left a message saying that our rental has to turn back, it was Friday 4 pm, after listening to this we tried to call back but all adjusters were gone. So Monday we called and spoke to our adjuster she was a useless sound like a broken record with no listening skills at all. So we asked to talk to the Manager, he listened and understood that they made a mistake but didn't want to take responsibility for it, what kind of manager do that. Zero management skills at all. So we did return the rental today Monday and had to pay for 2 days out of our pockets for a CALL CENTER REPRESENTATIVE MISTAKE and a useless adjuster and a manager that all she knows to say is "yes, they need some coaching" of course they do and in the meantime, it is costing me money and finally a rude, unprofessional, manager with zero skills! I Can't wait to switch insurance. Get a real insurance company, not this joke...

Worse company ever

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Lorie Jun 20, 2020
...I was not impressed with this company at all, every time I would ask them something they would have an excuse and not give a straight answer. Also, they are money grabbers! I got an accident last year with one vehicle and female driver just under 25 and for no reason at all my premium went up to 400 dollars which is insane I have had other companies offer way lower, even with the COVID discount they didn’t offer it to me I had to ask and still waiting didn’t get even though told them I’m not working. Not a company I would recommend at all...

Only Friendly Until Claim

 
(2.5 out of 5 stars)
by DD May 21, 2020
...Rates were pretty competitive and customer service was good on the sales side but found very different treatment when I had to make a claim. Zero fault auto claim started with high pressure, low ball offer when they wrote off my truck. When I asked questions about the settlement amount, the adjuster started cancelling my extras, like no extension on my rental car. That was followed by threats of storage fees applied to my wrecked vehicle if I did not settle by a certain date. After being bullied into accepting their offer, they took two weeks to release my claim amount citing COVID delays. I certainly wasn't allowed the same courtesy...

Accident Forgiveness is a SCAM

 
(2.5 out of 5 stars)
by PC Apr 13, 2020
...I joined Belair during 2016 when they had their big “Accident Forgiveness” campaign. Now, four years later, after my first collision, I find out that accident forgiveness was not added to my policy and no one at any point told me it needed to be added. Then the person on the phone said I could add it with my next car, forgetting that I JUST HAD A COLLISION and am no longer eligible. She made sure to highlight they’re the only Canadian Company offering accident forgiveness, but that doesn’t matter if it can’t actually get it. Once they pay me out for my car I am likely never dealing with them again...

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.

Avoid Belairdirect

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Customer review Mar 10, 2020
...Worst customer service ever! If you ever have to file a claim, you’d have to quit your job just to make sure anything is done right. It took for almost 3 months for my claim to be resolved. And in the end, I was paid a fraction of my car’s value. I would give them a 0 star if I can...

Way overpriced

 
(2.5 out of 5 stars)
by TT from Ottawa Mar 05, 2020
...I've made three claims with this company, once for my home, which was NOT paid, and twice for my vehicle, one of which was an at-fault accident. We paid for accident forgiveness, and then we had an at-fault accident and my insurance spiked by about $450 per year. Why am I paying for something and not receiving it? I am sure if I followed up with them, I would get a bunch of excuses about industry standards, blah, blah... but considering for that first claim, I had to shell out an extra $1200 for OM parts when my vehicle was brand new, that blather isn't going to be well-received. The insurance adjuster for that at-fault claim was an absolute incompetent on a power trip. I would be changing insurance companies if I could. But of course, without already having accident forgiveness with another company, we're pretty much screwed for a couple of years...

Worst experience.

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by Josh Mar 05, 2020
...I’ve dealt with multiple insurance companies, Belairdirect is by far the worst. They will happily take your money but will do everything possible to get out of paying money or simply doing their job. I had an accident in November, got injured and my car was totalled. It’s now March, haven’t gotten a penny. And now they are trying to push off the injury payment to the insurance company I signed up for a month after the accident occurred. The whole time, I am still being told to pay insurance (for a car that isn’t on the road anymore) so that my account stays open in hopes of eventually getting coverage for the damage done to my car. If looking for insurance, Belairdirect is cheap, but don’t follow through with anything committed...

The worst experience ever

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by ET Feb 29, 2020
...This company will not do their due diligence when it comes to an accident claim. I was left weeks without knowing what my outcome would be when I got into a minor accident which I later found out only through the other insurer that my claim was going to be 100% my fault even though I had evidence otherwise. Then got dropped, no call, no email nothing. Then when I call I deal with some foreign person who was extremely rude and unprofessional blaming me. If I knew I would have been able to have my claim investigated further I would have gladly done so but because this terrible company screwed me over I never bothered to pursue which was my biggest mistake. Don't ever trust this company with your life they don't care about you and just want your business and nothing more regardless if you are not at fault they blamed you. Better off going with a more reputable company and I'm happy I never have to deal with them ever again. Goodluck if this company is your insurer...

Worst company

 
(1.0 out of 5 stars)
by chaudhry Feb 25, 2020
...My vehicle was vandalized, reported and claim initiated. The adjuster took one month to make fraudulent links to assess my claim. I could not verify where she got prices so low that did not exist anywhere. Her Unit manager took over, after I complained included 2 legitimate links and kept 4 previous bogus links and evaluated my claim. When I requested reference to 4 (bogus) links could not justify. Stopped calls and answering to my quires. Claim transferred to another adjuster who is sitting on my file from the last 13 days. Not responding to my calls or emails. Extremely bad service, no regard for customers, Belairdirect is the worst company when you need help...
