I trust Allianz since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living homestay for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can to move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz instead of the previous service. Allianz is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Having lived in Australia for 2 years, I’ve been reliant on AHM OSHC to pay for my health care, which supports me for other expending. Last year, I sent my claim requests for several times and always received the claims within two days. Everything is easy, fast and simple.

Thanks to Allianz, every time I claimed my medial receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.

My homestay was very comfortable and convenient. My host was really kind. He showed me where to shop, which buses to catch, where the nearest train station is, to get off at which station so that I wouldn’t be taken to another suburb. Travelling was easy since the place was close to public transports. It only took 30 minutes to get to my college, actually I could go to anywhere easily!

When told that I was going to live with an Italian family, I was pretty nervous and doubted whether they could speak good English as the local people? Yet it was no longer a problem when I saw them. They knew the problems of people who first came to Australia and always tried to help me. I learned so many things about both Australian and Italian culture and enjoyed tasty Italian meals every time. Awesome!
