    I think you need to look at what's out there and choose what's best for you. Insurance companies all serve the same purpose and apart from the initial deals they use to entice you they're all similar in one way or another.

    Personally I'm with insured AAMI. Can't say they're the best as I've never had to make a claim (hopefully never have to) but I get a discount for insuring my PPOR and IP with them.

    You only really find out how good an insurance company is when you make an actual claim. I have been with Suncorp for many years and had about 3 claims with them over those years and they always paid out. Not to mention customer service and their prices are very competitive. Check them out.

    We've been with several companies. As we were knocked back by Suncorp when we had water in, and they refused our claim, and then increased next year's premium by about a third again, we moved to Youi. Now we have everything with Youi.

    We've had good experiences claiming on vehicle insurance with them, and also when we had an IP that had hail damage (windows repaired and new roof) they made it easy to deal with them and their nominated repairer/s. We had one supervisor looking after all trades required for this major repair. I was very impressed.

    We get a nice discount as we have multiple policies with them, and best of all in my opinion is that I don't have to scratch about working out which vehicle or house is with which company.

    PPOR or IP?

    If IP: EBM or Terrischeer have the best landlord insurance policies. You would want your land lord and building insurance to be with the same company so they can't try and handball the claim. So I'd pick one of those two.

    I'm with RACV with all my investment properties. Great service and have multiple discounts as I have been a customer for years and also have all my cars insured with them.

    That's good to know as I have often wondered about Youi. I did get a quote from them last year for car insurance but they were more expensive than others and I ended up going with Bingle instead, which is part of the Suncorp group oddly enough.
