Claims as easy as 1, 2, 3If you need to make a claim on your car insurance, you can choose between completing an online car insurance claims form or calling 13 10 13 to speak to one of our friendly consultants.

How to make a claim

  • Have as much detail as possible, including the date, where the damage occurred, and the people, vehicles and property involved
  • Fill out our online motor claim form or call 13 10 13.
  • Quick processing of claims will get you back on the road.

What should you do if you have an accident?

Take precautions to prevent further loss, damage or liability.

Notify the police as soon as possible if necessary.

Get as much information as you can - the more detail the better. Record the name, address, phone number, email address, licence number and insurer of other drivers involved, and the registration numbers of their vehicles.

Also make note of whether the car is owned by someone else other than the driver and take down their details.

Other information that will help in the claims process include:

  • Colour, make, model and year of other cars involved and the extent of damage to them
  • Photos of the scene as well as of the damage to other cars
  • Notes about the condition of the road, weather or other external factors that may have played a part in the accident.

Do not admit fault or liability at the scene and don't attempt to settle any insurance claim made against you. You may think you are at fault immediately following an accident, but legally you may have been in the right.

Try to get names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of any independent third-party witnesses to help in the event of a dispute over who was at fault.

If your vehicle is not driveable and you have comprehensive or Third Party Property Damage, Fire and Theft cover, arrange for it to be towed somewhere safe or call us on 13 10 13 and we will arrange for a tow truck operator to attend the scene. Make sure you obtain the address details of where the vehicle is towed to.

Dispute resolution process

Allianz strives to resolve disputes as amicably and as quickly as possible.

As a signatory to the General Insurance Code of Practice we offer an Internal Dispute Resolution Process (IDR) in the event a customer is not satisfied with either the outcome of a General Insurance claim, or any aspect of its handling. To start the IDR process, call us and ask to speak to the Claims Team Leader.

We will do everything to reach a resolution within the terms of the policy. If, however, you are still dissatisfied with our decision, you may choose to refer the matter to an independent external dispute resolution body, the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). The FOS Scheme offers claimants an impartial alternative to litigation. Like our IDR process, the FOS Scheme is free to claimants.
