Latest reviews of Shannons Home & Contents Insurance

  • Overall 5/10
    Good for one insurance category only

    I have been with this insurer for a number of years, for home and contents and car insurance. Car Insurance is great, no problems. Pay the excess and that's it. Home insurance however is not. I made one claim in (about) 7 years that I have been with them. It was for my ducted air conditioning unit. Cost of repairs was $1800 and I had to pay the excess. Fair enough. They phoned me and offered me just $900 and I still had to pay the excess. Pretty sad.

    They don't have great home loan policies

    I'm sure Shannon's are good in their specialist area, but for home claims, not at all. I don't feel particularly protected by the home and contents policy. I have only made two claims, one for accidental breakage and one for electrical damage: both were rejected after a drawn out process in which I had the feeling that loophole's were being sought. Also Shannon's doesn't offer pensioner's or senior's rates.

    Friendly and family oriented

    I like this insurer for so many reasons but one was so helpful with family and nice to talk to Aussies.
