About Our Company
AA Insurance has been offering general insurance to New Zealanders for 20 years. Our products have all been developed right here in New Zealand with Kiwis in mind. We pride ourselves on offering competitive and flexible cover while delivering the best customer service in the industry, we think these independent awards endorse just that:

- Kiwis have voted us Reader's Digest 'Most Trusted General Insurer' since 2011.
- We’ve been recognised by Reader’s Digest in the Quality Service Awards for Car, Home & Contents Insurance since 2015.

We employ more than 700 staff throughout New Zealand and are proud to be named as New Zealand’s Best Large Workplace in the IBM Kenexa Best Workplaces Survey for 2016 and 2011. On top of that, we have consistently been a finalist since 2008.
We have over 385,000 customers and look after over 745,000 home, contents, vehicle and small business insurance policies.
Our purpose and values
We aim to eliminate stress and provide certainty for our customers. We believe if we get this right, everything else follows.
