Regular Driver Misrepresentation
This is one of the most controversial claim rejection reasons. The reality is that short-term insurance for young people is high, and for good reason. There is a massive difference in the risk, experience and behavior of young adults when compared to that of their parents.
The difference in risk is indicative to the premiums charged, so when the young adult quotes himself as the regular driver of a vehicle, he could find that the insurance premium is higher than the monthly finance installment of the vehicle. Bad advice from friends or even family leads the individual to change the regular driver on the policy to a parent for a more affordable premium, believing that nothing will happen, or thinking that the insurance company will never know. Unfortunately, all too often, the first claim arises before the client even receives his policy schedule.
Identifying a misrepresentation on the regular driver at claims stage is not as difficult as people think. The bad advice the individual took quickly turns into a nightmare when the claim is rejected and the client find himself having to pay finance for five years on a vehicle he no longer owns.
Regular driver misrepresentation is common and financial advisers should ensure that they warn clients against incorrectly insuring the vehicle.

Compliment you on one of your staff membersGood day Philip, I trust you are well. I just want to compliment you on one of your staff members Stefan. Since I started at this company he’s always been helping me with queries, claims and payments that was not even his. He’s never once not assisted me, always been more than kind, eager to help and slow to anger/NEVER angry when I’m was lost/misunderstood. ALWAYS give feedback… I have never come across anyone who’s as dedicated and helpful as Stefan. Goes the extra mile and even make it his responsibility to help. He’s a true asset to your company and should be in a manager’s position if he is not yet… I wish him all the best and hold on to him for he is living the company values!!! Kind regards Bianca
