Car Insurance with AA

Ray from Te Atatu South

We have been with AA for at least 30 years and have been happy overall. We have not had many claims at all and any claims for car insurance have not been mine or my wife's fault.
I accept that each year the premium increases but this year I was shocked when receiving the increase of 29.7%

We have been with AA for at least 30 years and have been happy overall. We have not had many claims at all and any claims for car insurance have not been mine or my wife's fault.
I accept that each year the premium increases but this year I was shocked when receiving the increase of 29.7%
I dont bear a grudge insurance companies having to increase their policies but for long time service people 29.7% is totally unacceptable and should be taken up with the Insurance Ombudsman. If anybody can point me to the Ombudsman I would be very much appreciated. Other insurance companies are the same - Wow what a surprise!
They keep blaming Gabrielle but fur us and especially on a pension, being long term members (my wife is 42 years) with 1 or 2 claims none of which were my fault is unaffordable and unless the Superannuation is increased accordingly there is no way that we will find it viable to hold on to a car and lose independence Again attack the old
Can somebody please help me in finding the right person to talk to (even though it will probably do no good but at least try) AND even organise a protest of some kind that would get national tv involved.

Any help and advice would be really appreciated and the old saying is "Put something good out and always some good will come back"
PLEASE HELP

Not all Ryman residents can claim viral internet sensation status – but Patrick Hogan Retirement Village’s Doug Lineham sure can!

It was during the live televised name reveal for Ryman Healthcare’s new Cambridge village on TVNZ’s Breakfast that presenter Matty McClean happened upon Doug.

The resulting hilarious sequence of dry, but complimentary-to-Ryman, one-liners left the audience calling for Doug to have his own show. One fan even touted him as the next PM!

What viewers didn’t know, however, was that behind the droll exterior, Doug was dealing with the loss of his beloved wife Jan.
