    I just got this instead of my usual renewal email from QBE:

    When I got a quote via Tesla's offering (backed by QBE) it was significantly more expensive than going direct to QBE so I went direct instead. I guess this will also chuck a massive spanner in the 4 year/100000km "New for Old if written off" when insured from new which was a large reason for choosing QBE in the first place.

    So annoying.

    Are QBE still the underwriters of Tesla's offering?

    Not sure re QBE, but I went RACV as they are the cheapest for me. New for old first 2 years (unlimited km's), on market value now......no claims for me in a long time and I think like a $2k excess...have a few other cars insured so got max discount also....less that $100 per mont....

    After a quick ring around RACV are on par with QBE (actually a bit cheaper). I tried YOUI first and got $1000 over my usual QBE renewal and was worried I was in for a rough time.

    I always shop around every year. I will just go with the best deal each year.
    I have a friend in insurance, who told me that 'loyalty' is a resource they exploit. It's always better to shop around, don't blindly stay with one insurer.
