Committed to you
and our people.
We’re continuing to listen closely to the advice of relevant health authorities and put plans in place to limit the impact of Coronavirus. Due to the high demand for our temporary premium relief we are at times experiencing service delays in our call centre. Our phone lines are still open, but to keep you from waiting, here are some options that could make things quicker.
Temporary premium relief
We’ve extended Car Insurance Premium Relief and introduced Home Insurance Premium Relief.
Already receiving Car Insurance relief? We’re giving you 10% relief for another 3 months. No need to do anything!
If you or someone at your house is under quarantine or feeling unwell due to an infectious disease, such as Coronavirus, or are expecting to be due to travel, please contact us on 13 YOUI (13 9684) to reschedule your service provider appointment for assessment or repairs until you complete your quarantine period.
To see the progress of your existing claim, you can access our online claims tracker using the unique code provided in your claims lodgement email.
Keeping you up to date
With the situation around Coronavirus constantly changing, we want to keep you updated about the plans we’re putting in place to limit its impact. Continuing to provide you with the information and services you need around your insurance, while making sure our people aren’t put at unnecessary risk, is paramount right now.
We feel that by being proactive now, it will put us and our company in a better place later. And importantly, allow us to maintain the high level of service you’ve come to expect from Youi.
Proactive safety measures
When it comes to face-to-face meetings with customers for claims and assessments, our staff and service providers are actively enacting measures to keep our employees, contractors, customers and members of the public safe.
We will continue to monitor and enact all measures as recommended by the Australian Government in response to the emerging COVID-19 outbreak, including travel restrictions and quarantine periods for our people.
