What home insurance cover does AAMI offer?

AAMI offers the normal 3 types of home insurance: Building, Contents, and a combined Home and Contents policy. They also offer optional extras so you can tailor your policy, and Landlord Insurance to protect your investment properties.

An AAMI Home Insurance policy can cover you for these insured events and more:

AAMI offers varying excesses from $200 up to $3,000. You can choose a different excess for the building part of your policy, and a different excess for the contents part. This will impact the cost of your policy, but it also gives you the opportunity to choose an excess you feel comfortable with.

AAI Limited issues AAMI Home Insurance policies, and there's a cooling off period of 21 days in case you change your mind.

Here's a review of AAMI complaints

We looked at home insurance complaint data from the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) between July 2022 and June 2023. The data breaks down different underwriters and compares their business size to the number of complaints processed.

When comparing insurers, keep in mind that insurers with a larger market share serve more customers, so can potentially get more complaints.

Here's an overview of how AAMI (AAI Limited) did:

  • AAI was able to resolve most of its complaints by the end of the overall complaints resolution process.
  • While it's quite common to see very large firms with a high number of complaints, AAI Limited has the highest volume of complaints compared to Insurance Australia and QBE. It also has the lowest percentage of complaints resolved.

Here's the bottom line about AAMI Home Insurance

AAMI is a well-known brand in the home insurance space. It offers unique benefits like Complete Replacement Cover and AAMI Home Assist which is something that most other companies don't do.

One thing to note is that AAMI's underwriter has historically had a large number of complaints, so make sure you read the PDS to understand what you're signing up for.
