Auckland, 27 November 2017 – AA Insurance has taken away two golds for customer service at the 2018 Reader's Digest Quality Service Awards, scoring top ratings in both car, and home and contents insurance.

The awards highlight companies that go beyond customer expectations, and show the public who they can turn to for an excellent level of service.

A representative sample of 1,500 Kiwis were asked to nominate companies based on: the individual customer experience, a demonstrated insight into customer needs, quick and easy dealings, consistency of high-quality service, and meeting or exceeding customer expectations.

“We’re delighted to be rewarded by these awards for our level of service,” says Chris Curtin, Chief Executive, AA Insurance. “Our team is dedicated to helping our customers every day, whether they’re updating their address or making a claim, so the awards offer superb recognition of their dedication. I couldn’t be prouder.”
