Aviva Customer Experiences

In general, the most common complaints refer to the length of time taken to have a claim processed, which is actually fairly common among home insurers.

Others complain that the cost of the service is not competitive, not least for renewal costs that can be higher than most expect.

Otherwise, the company has a good customer care record.

Overall Review for Aviva Home Insurance

Aviva Home Insurance receives a surprising number of complaints, especially considering the otherwise well received and praised insurance services otherwise provided by Aviva.

However, most complaints seem focused on the length of time to get a home insurance claim completed, which is a remarkably common complaint raised across most home insurance providers.

The main thing to watch for is a price increase on renewal, so it’s probably worth shopping around after your first year, or else challenging Aviva to match its original quote.
