When it comes to getting insured, everyone on the planet wants to find the right company and, thus, the right deal for them. Scouring through insurers can be a meticulous and lengthy process, but it’s one that needs to be done in order to achieve financial and mental clarity. Here we’ll talk a little about Aviva Insurance (formerly known as Hibernian Insurance Company Ltd.) and what they can do for a customer in Ireland and beyond.
They provide more than just an insurance service. As a money company, they have many articles and posts that can advise any visitor about how to behave with their finances. Whether it be regarding pensions & pension annuity, savings, investments, or other methods of financial protection, they’ll probably have it covered. Dealing with dividends and equity is also within their scope. They hand out advice to underwriters and brokers regarding potential future work, too.
As one of the world’s leading insurance companies, people of Ireland will no doubt have many queries regarding their work, their history, and their reliability. Here are some more pieces of information regarding this public limited company for you to delve into:
Aviva (together with Aviva Ireland), led by CEO Maurice Tulloch is an insurance and asset management company that covers a wide, wide range of life’s aspects. With over thirty-three million consumers worldwide and a registered office in counties all over, they are a leading insurer in Ireland. Despite a dispute with the Central Bank, they are, of course, a successful part of the Aviva group which is prevalent and present across Europe, Canada and Asia. Each year, Aviva pays its customers an average of nearly thirty-five million euros in claims and benefits across all markets.
Customers choose to go with Aviva due to their ability to continually churn out the right results. They’ve been established as an option for well over three hundred years, so they know a thing or two about insuring people in need - Irish or otherwise. That kind of experience doesn’t come around all that often, so they have that history to offer people over similar companies. At this stage, Aviva is a more than recognised brand – especially in the UK and Ireland. The name and brand will have been seen by the vast majority of eyes on these particular shores due to advertisements and sponsorships alike. In 2010, they even struck a deal and would later announce Lansdowne Road as the Aviva Stadium, a moment in history that the Irish will remember. They boast sponsorships regarding many other venues around the globe.
These kinds of moves put them high up in the estimations of customers, potential customers and leads.
As previously mentioned, Aviva Ireland has an eclectic mix of regulated markets and policies for their customers to engage in. While they have healthcare and life cover policies, they also have many other kinds for customers to sink their teeth into. Car insurance, home insurance, investments, dealing with a mortgage, and retirements are all considered, too. Their general policies away from life insurance are more than broad, to say the least.
In order to pay Aviva insurance premium online, you simply have to sign up and input all the correct details into the server. Your quote depends on the details you input - though there’s always a minimum premium. Once you’ve done that and everything has been confirmed; you’re pretty much good to go in terms of getting your cover. Discount codes are available through different sources. You’ll be paying a monthly direct debit for Aviva’s services. If you are unable to fund a monthly installment payment, then your credit rating may take a hit as a result. This could then make it more difficult for you to obtain credit in the future.
If you wish to change payment details at some point, then you can get in touch with Aviva via the phone. Just be sure to contact the correct office as they have different lines for different policies.
The process of claiming insurance from Aviva plc is very simple, thankfully. You can head online and apply for the product you wish. The interface is very easy on the eyes, so you’ll be able to pick out exactly what you need with little restriction. Once you’ve selected the correct claim, all you’ll have to do is login and follow the steps laid out on the screen. Whether it be home insurance, motor products, health products, or anything else, you’ll be able to get things sorted in a matter of minutes.
Of course, if you’re not currently in possession of a computer and/or smartphone with access to the internet, then there’s always a phone number that you can use to contact Aviva directly.
In order to cancel your Aviva Car insurance, you must phone up and speak directly to them. You cannot log in to your MyAviva account and do it that way, unfortunately. You can also email them if you feel as though that’s the best way, but you may get a delayed response due to the volume of emails they receive on a day-to-day basis.
When something suspicious looks as though it has taken place in terms of your involvement with the company, your account may lock up. This is simply to protect your details, data and funds from being compromised in any way, shape, or form. The account will stay locked indefinitely. This isn’t too much of a problem for you, however, as you’ll be able to unlock it with a fairly simple set of steps. All you have to do is visit their ‘forgotten details’ page and do as instructed. Once that process has been completed – depending on whether you inputted the right data – you’ll have your account back.
Of course, if the problem persists after that, then you can always get on the phone to them and speak to a staff member. They have a customer service email, too, if you feel more comfortable with that form of contact.
If you’re ever in a significant motor accident or anything similar that could compromise your health, then you’ll need to follow a few steps.
You’ll firstly have to make sure you and anyone in the immediate area are safe. Then you can check around for anyone slightly further away. Make sure the car’s engine is turned off before you leave. Other drivers may not be aware that a significant event has taken place, so watch out for the traffic still on the road.
Once you’ve made sure everyone is okay, contact any necessary emergency services. You should also exchange details with whoever is involved (provided they are a policyholder), and get in touch with your insurer to discuss your Aviva policy, whether it be motor insurance or life cover, and see what they can provide you with next.
