Some people love it, some people hate it; everybody needs it. Whether it’s car, life, health, house, business or pet, insurance is an absolute must for any person who can afford it (and even then, it’s still needed and should be planned for).
One of the troubles with insurance, however, is the fact that there are literally hundreds of companies offering “the best insurance” for you. All you need to do is turn on the TV, and you’ll more than likely come face-to-face with an advert for insurance. Or look at a street pole. Or drive next to an insurance company-branded vehicle.
With so many insurance options out there, and so many more insurance company options to boot, we thought we’d do everyone a favour and provide the unadulterated, unfiltered and unfettered list of the top five insurance companies according to the popular review site, HelloPeter.
You can thank us later.
With a trust index rating of 10 out of 10 and a 91% 5-star review record on HelloPeter, dotsure.co.za is a solid and reliable insurance option for anybody needing any of the above-mentioned cover.
They pride themselves on their efficient and friendly customer service, as stated on their website, “Creating fans, not policyholders.”.
4. King Price Insurance
Widely known for its car insurance and its promise to keep your premiums cheaper than anywhere else, King Price has done a great job at marketing its services to the South African people.
With over 38 000 customers satisfied to the tune of a 5-star review on HelloPeter, King Price Insurance is a good option for anybody looking to save some bucks. Oh, and they cover all the general stuff, too, not just cars!
3. Prime Meridian Direct
A car insurance company that, in their own words, “believes that all South Africans should enjoy affordable car insurance products with fixed premiums”.
Fixed premiums? As in, they don’t change?
Yup! It’s any wonder it’s rated the third-best insurance company on HelloPeter. Prime Meridian Direct car insurance offers a wide range of affordable, customised cover for the everyday South African motorist.
2. MiWay Insurance
Coming in at number two on HelloPeter is the popular MiWay Insurance. They offer competitive and affordable car, home, personal and business insurance. Over 110 000 people have given them full marks on HelloPeter, which has got to count for something, right?
They’re definitely a serious option if you’re looking for insurance!
Quite possibly a surprise to many who may be reading this, but Bloom is a partner of Momentum, which makes a little more sense as to why they’d be number one. Strictly a health insurance provider, there is little online that’s negative about them, which is an achievement in and of itself.
In their own words, “Bloom was founded to make private healthcare accessible and affordable without sacrificing the quality of care. Our name represents our desire to improve the lives of all South Africans, enabling growth through health.”
Happy Insurance Hunting!
