Who is Insurance Watch?
In 1999 Insurance Watch launched Australia’s first online comparison website for life insurance, including TPD, Trauma and income protection insurance. Since then we have helped thousands of Australians to find great deals on their insurance.
Insurance Watch is a fully licensed insurance broker. We can provide a full suite of services, unlike some other comparison websites who have no in-house expertise in the products they compare. Our team of qualified advisers have drawn on their years of experience to produce the consumer friendly guides and general information featured on our website. And if you request advice on your personal situation this can be provided. Insurance Watch can also help you to manage your policy, including making changes to your cover and providing support if you need to claim.
Insurance Watch Pty Ltd (ABN 49 073 368 171) is a corporate authorised representative No. 301423 for Synchronised Business Services Pty Ltd (ABN 33 007 207 650) AFS License No. 243313 for life insurance products. Both Insurance Watch and Synchron are privately owned.
Our Financial Services Guide explains who we are, what services we provide, how your personal information will be dealt with, how we are paid by the insurance companies (we do not charge you any fees for our services) and your rights of complaint.
Rather than spending money on TV advertising we have chosen to share some of the commission we receive with our clients. Under the Insurance Watch 20% Reward we will refund 10% of the premiums you pay in the first two years of your policy. You won’t get this deal from other insurance brokers or from the insurance companies direct.
Buying life insurance without sales pressure
Using the Insurance Watch website you won’t be hassled by telephone salesman. You can use our online resources and compare quotes without supplying any personal information.
We compare policies from Australia’s largest life insurance companies. We provide not only premium comparisons but also detailed comparisons of product benefits. We explain the purpose of Life and TPD insurance, Trauma insurance and Income Protection insurance – what they are intended to cover, why each is different and providing tips on the features to look for.
We also compare the life insurance companies themselves – who owns them, how big are they, what awards they have won and how many claims they pay. Insurance Watch has become an online forum for customer reviews and ratings based on their experiences with insurers.
With our online tools you can research your insurance options in an environment free of sales pressure. Our life insurance needs calculator helps you to estimate how much Life, TPD, Trauma and income protection cover you may need. Our BMI calculator will help you to see if you qualify for some of the latest discounts on offer.
The Insurance Watch Compare Insurance Quotes Online (or “DIY Insurance”) service and other content featured on the website is designed for consumers seeking general advice only. As such this content and any operator assistance provided will not take into account your objectives, financial situation or needs and there is a risk that any product you select may not be appropriate for your circumstances.
You are able to request personal advice on your situation from one of our qualified advisers through our Get Advice service. Before recommending a specific policy, cover level or strategy to you they will first need to assess your personal circumstances.
