About Our Insurers

How we select insurers and products for you

At Insure Online, we carefully select every insurer so that we can bring the best available insurance products to you and to ensure your interests are always placed first.

Each insurer we work with must be licenced to underwrite general insurance products in New Zealand and they must hold a AAA, AA or A credit rating, as rated by Standard and Poor's Rating Services. This is important as it is your reassurance that our insurers will be able to pay your claims now, and in the future. For a description of the credit rating scale, please visit the Standard and Poor's Rating Services website.

Our insurers must embrace the highest ethical standards in their interaction with employees, their community, suppliers, shareholders, customers and distributors. We prefer to work with insurers and suppliers who give consideration to the long term impacts of their decisions and actions. They must abide by the Fair Insurance Code, a code of practice that sets minimum service standards for insurance companies and describes the responsibilities that customers and their insurance company have to each other. For information on the Fair Insurance Code, please view the Insurance Council of New Zealand website.
