Complaints to Compare Club

Unhappy with our service?

The Compare Club team aims to meet the highest possible standards for our customers but there may be times when you feel we’ve fallen short. We want to make sure we can put things right.

We take all feedback seriously. We’ll work with you to address the complaint quickly, and aim to find a resolution that is fair and reasonable. In reaching this we will be guided by our Complaint and Dispute Resolution Procedure. This document is available on request.

How to complain

Below is a summary of our Complaint and Dispute Resolution Procedure.

  1. Let us know as soon as possible if you have a concern. We accept complaints in writing or over the phone. Please make sure you supply any supporting documentation or records.

  2. A specialist will aim to resolve your complaint within 3 working days for health insurance and 5 working days for life insurance, energy and home loans.

  3. If your complaint is not resolved within 3 working days for health insurance and 5 working days for all other products, it will be addressed by a Team Leader.

  4. If you’re not satisfied with the Team Leader’s response, we’ll refer the matter to our Compliance Manager, who will try to resolve your complaint. This process will take approximately 5-7 days to complete.

If the complaint relates to benefits or services provided by one of our partners, we can help you lodge your complaint with this partner.

If we can’t resolve your complaint

We aim to resolve all complaints within a timely and satisfactory manner. If you’re still unhappy with the resolution, you may contact the relevant regulatory body.

Privacy complaints

We take your privacy seriously. If you believe your privacy has been interfered with and wish to make a complaint, please contact our Compliance Manager at compliance@compareclub.com.au.

The Compliance Manager will investigate your complaint and notify you of the outcome.

If it appears from your complaint that there has been an interference with privacy by a person other than CCH, the Compliance Manager may discuss the complaint with that person in an attempt to resolve it.

If you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your complaint, or you do not receive a response to your complaint within 30 days, you may make a complaint to the Office of the Australian Information Commissioner (OAIC).

Complaints to the OAIC must be made in writing.

Where possible, complaints to the OAIC should be made through the online Privacy Complaint form, available at www.oaic.gov.au/privacy/privacy-complaints.
