The claims assistant was desperate to categorise my referral to a cardiologist as a pre-existing condition. I reported slight heart tremors in June but was given the ok by doctor. He asked how long had I had the heart tremors and he was desperate for it to be 3 months so it was before my policy started. No it isn’t the same thing, no it isn’t a pre-existing condition. I now have to wait four weeks for a doctors appointment to fill out a form then a further five days for Aviva to make a decision. Unacceptable. I would be seen quicker with the NHS (that’s if I haven’t collapsed with heart failure by then).

Aviva are completely crooked, they failed to settle my claim after a four and a half month wait
I provided everything they asked and more including photos of the accident
My vehicle had been involved in a hit and run
Aviva disputed that it could of happened the way it did and may as well called me a liar although I had been with aviva for ten years having never had a claim in the past from them. The acted in a very unprofessional manor and never returned my calls even when I called them repeatedly over a four and a half month period
Very bad business in my opinion
Completely unprofessional
I’m taking them to court
And shall continue to post my experience.
I hope you don’t find out the hard way, like I did,
About aviva
When you look at there own web reviews page, it paints a picture of happy customers, but all the reviewers on other sites seem to feel the same way as I do
Look for yourself

Rubbish Website & Awful Customer Service Response Times

My employer has just swapped to Aviva as my Pension Provider and I am already having a very bad experience. The Website is very hard to use when it comes to swapping from my existing investment option to different funds. I tried phoning up their customer support and was put through to the wrong department. It has already taken 27 minutes (still waiting) to register a complaint. I haven't even managed to get through to someone that knows what they are doing yet!
My recommendation is to swap your money to a more professional organisation such as Hargreaves Landsdown, AJ Bell or Fidelity.

I pay a high monthly premium, but recently when I was advised by my GP to have some moles on my body investigated to makes sure they were not cancerous, I have still ended up with bills totalling £711.00. They seem to cover nothing unless you are at ...

What a joke of a company!!! Beware if you ever get into an accident with one of their customers, shocking customer service no compassion in regards to the victim only money! As soon as a bad offer for your written off car is given they off hire a courtesy car and leave you in total distress!
You have to call them as they simply do not return calls! Bring back good old fashioned Customer service with company’s that care about individuals.

Rant over but don’t use Aviva
