expired Woolworths Car Insurance (Free $75 Fuel Card + 1yr Roadside Assistance + Upto 20% Discount)

252
WOOL20

Was just having a look around for a cheaper and reliable car insurance cover and found this.
Got nearly $100 cheaper than renewing with current insurance company plus the freebies(petrol and roadside assistance).

Woolworths car insurance is running a promo providing :
$75 Fuel Gift Card#
FREE Roadside Assistance in your first year#
http://insurance.woolworths.com.au/carpromo/

And when you add the promotional code "WOOL20" you get upto 20% discount.

I got the promo code from here and even though it said as expired last year..it still works…

Edit: I purchased a third party property damage on a 1999 Daewoo Lanos and woolies quote for it was cheaper than the others.

Edit2: I have fixed the link and should be able to get online quote from it. Its a pain though trying to get a quote from a mobile device.

**For people getting crazy high quotes —You could try calling them and checking if they price match…

    where do you put in promo code?

    •  

      Can't find it either…

    they want 1470 from me when I currently pay 800.
    no deal.

  •  

    Not a deal when it is only available with a phone salesperson rather than an option to do it online

  •  

    Not even close.

  •  

    Yeah got a quote and turned out to be $200 more than my current insurer. No deal.

  •  

    my current insurer AAMI is half the price. But good way to entice people with $75 gift card and free roadside for a year.

  •  

    Got the cheapest quote for third party property damage cover. But do not know whether the $75 fuel card is for comprehensive only?

  •  

    They don't offer insurance for my Hiace Commuter 2000 lol….

    •  

      lol I got the exact same 2000 Hiace, no deal for me either!

    Absolute waste of time for NO QUOTE at all. Entered every little detail only to be told at the very end that my type of vehicle is NOT covered. This is something that should and could have been advised when the vehicle details were entered at the START of the quote.

    Where are you supposed to add the promo code?

    they are also the worst company i'd dealt with when making a claim. would not recommend to anyone.

    •  

      I was with them last year and had to make a free windscreen claim… I found no problems, and the whole process was very quick and easy

  •  

    @ethanol — Promo code comes up in the third or fourth page of details…
    @chincilla yes the $75 gift card and road side assistance comes with third party property damage as well..

    •  

      i still cant find where to enter the promo code?

    Once I add on all the extras that my existing QBE policy already has, it is no cheaper and actually is more by $100 plus who is the underwriter as I we have made a few claims on the car from being rammed in the back from useless drivers. We are currently dealing with an uninsured guy who drive into the back of us in the car park of the apartments where we live while we were waiting for the boom gate to open.

    So this 'deal' is posted by the rep and he writes: "Was just having a look around for a cheaper and reliable car insurance cover and found this." ….
    Dodgy.

    Stop wasting our time, thanks.

    PS. it's not cheaper than other insurances. I have just done a comparison and this one was more expensive than then one I eventually went with (one of the big ones).

    Plus, no way to enter code (rep claims it comes up at the very end) but I'm not going to enter all my personal details including car reg and so on to do this.

    Waste of time, would recommend this 'deal' to be unpublished because it's not a deal.

    •  

      I m not a rep…not sure y it shows as store rep and no way to untick it..

      Also I told in my instance I got a cheaper quote ..did not guarantee everyone will get a cheaper quote as its based on many factors…

      Found that they are expensive if you had a claim in last 5 yrs even if u were not at fault..

      Would provide a screenshot of where to enter the promo code..

        Did not have a claim and driving a regular Toyota…still more expensive.

      • This is resolved, you had clicked store rep on your previous Woolworths deal. Thanks

      •  

        Vrusabh..please upload screen shots on where to enter promo code
        cheers

    •  

      I took out 3PP+theft on my 15yo 4WD with WW last year (with a bounus Visa card) and it was significantly cheaper than the other half dozen or so providers I tried - including NRMA, AAMI, GIO, Coles, Allianz. Many simply wouldn't insure the vehicle, others were $hundreds dearer. Horses for courses.

      •  

        WW were also the cheapest by far for me (3PP+theft) - I have a 1999 Mazda 121.
        I also got $50 Wish gift card at the time, all good!

  •  

    I think by mistake op ticked 'store rep' button.

    Also woolies doesnt have price beat guarantee but Coles do have…

      Coles MAY have - that is IF they'll insure your vehicle in the first place. They had no interest in insuring either my older 4WD nor the wife's Mazda 323 despite sending me at least 3 Little Red offers via their generally-rubbish Flybuys program. We both have no claims and very good driving records, live in a safe suburb. If you won't insure then your claims/gaurantees of cheapest/best are total rubbish imo.

      •  

        Coles beat my Bingle premium by $2 yep, TWo whole dollars, but I had to snail mail a photocopy of my renewal notice.
        Nett gain $1.30 (60c stamp 10c copy fee)
        No Deal for me.

  •  

    Third party property for my Mercedes E200 at $500. Cheapest anywhere else is $400. But this one comes with $75 fuel and one year of roadside assistance. So this is a better deal.

  •  

    I'm one of the lowest risk/costs an insurer can find yet they all run a mile from me…

    Has to be my car, probably 10 or so in Australia. Still, wouldn't trust woolworths as far as I can throw them!

    Wow they flat out won't insure you if you have a performance air filter lol what the hell is with that? Or a performance exhaust.

    •  

      The thing I find stupid is you'd think they would be hunting high performance/V8's. They'd sell more fuel…

    A bunch of Insurance quotes for my Grand Cherokee back in Nov, all the same extras, hire car, windscreen etc..:
    Everyone gets a different result, for me it worked out as beneficial.

    Woolworths (replace car for 12 months) $881, excess $600
    GIO Platinum (replace car for lifetime) $967, excess $650
    AAMI (replace car for 24 months) $1,119, excess $625
    Allianz (replace car for 24 months) $1,151, excess $850
    Coles, (don't know about car replacement) $1,287, excess $850
    Bingle, (don’t know about car replacement) $1,200+
    Youi (AKA- you have got to be fkn kidding me) $2,500, excess - who cares

    At the time Woolworths also gave a $50 card, and an extra 4cents off per litre at the servos.
    Make sure you do the Drive Less Pay Less section, it makes a big difference.

    Because the misses has staff discount it became $681.34
    No surcharge for monthly payment

    Just did this and got $285.31 cheaper price than my renewal.

    OLD: $600 excess, $11900 covered, unlimited km
    NEW: $800 excess, $10660 covered, 9000km

    For almost $300 saving… the differences don't bother me.. plus I get the $75 card.. and roadside assist!!

    Not to mention that I've never had a claim.. so not intending to claim here either.. haha.. (best laid plans)
