RAA home insurance review

RAA home insurance comes with lots of benefits and savings but it’s only open to SA residents.

4.3 ★★★★★ (56 reviews) Write a review

Our verdict

  • RAA home insurance benefits are pretty unique. You automatically become an RAA member and get access to extra benefits, from Big W discounts to money off AFL merch.
  • RAA home insurance comes with lots of discounts, including a 10% multi-policy discount, 10% seniors discounts and you can pay monthly at no extra cost – lots of other insurers we looked at charge you more for this.
  • It's not for everyone – you can only get a policy if you live in South Australia.
Sorry! We currently don't have this brand on our panel. But don't fret, you can head to the RAA home insurance website or compare a bunch of other home insurance companies with Finder.

  • Asbestos
  • Defects including faulty workmanship or design
  • Earth movement including erosion or landslide

Here's some information on RAA home insurance complaints

We reviewed some of the latest complaints data from the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA) between July 2020 and June 2021. This data looks at how different underwriters respond to and resolve complaints.

Here are some things we noticed about RAA home insurance:

  • RAA is considered a medium-sized firm but it does have a relatively high number of complaints when compared to others of its size.
  • This is the same case with AIG; however, you can see that RAA has a higher percentage of claims that were resolved directly with its customers.

This is the bottom line about RAA

RAA home insurance comes with a stack of included benefits along with many chances to save on your premium. Plus, your policy comes with an RAA membership so you can take advantage of the many discounts and rewards for policyholders.

The downsides? One big one is that you need to live in South Australia to get a policy. If this doesn't sound like the one for you, you can compare other home insurance brands side by side so that you end up with a policy you're happy with.

      Hi M,

      Thank you for reaching out to Finder.

      Depending on the settlement of the claim, you may request this directly to the company representative if it is possible to have the claim converted into cash instead. Hope this helps!

      Cheers,
      Reggie
