Consumers still choose Santam as the best South African short-term insurance company

Insurance companies promise a lot of things. That they’re faster and cheaper than the next guy. Or that they’ll always be there for you. At Santam, we’ve always said that we do insurance good and proper. Insurance with no ifs, no buts and no maybes. Insurance that looks for reasons to pay you, rather than reasons not to. It’s this commitment that has led to both consumers and brokers voting us the most reliable personal insurer when it comes to paying claims and satisfying their insurance needs.

Santam ranked top performing insurer

The South African Customer Satisfaction Index (SAcsi) is an industry benchmark survey and it has just revealed that for the third consecutive year, Santam is the top insurer in South Africa. That means that when it comes to paying claims, responding to complaints and the overall value we provide, South Africans think we are the best.

What’s more, we are well-loved by brokers too. In 2016, we were voted Personal Insurer of the Year by the Financial Intermediary Association (FIA). So when your broker recommends Santam, it really is his/her preferred choice of insurer.

Value vs. price

Results from the SAcsi survey showed that consumers are not just comparing insurance on price but also on value. We know that when it comes to insurance, cheaper doesn’t always mean better.  For example, if you’re buying car insurance based on price alone, you could end up paying more money than you bargained for.  If you’re involved in an accident, your excess structure – the amount you have to pay your insurer first in the event of a claim - could put you completely out of pocket. So before you decide, ask yourself if buying cheap insurance is worth it and how likely your insurer is to pay out your claim.
