Default AIG Insurance Contact?

Good afternoon RVers!

I am looking to see if anyone has a contact for AIG to get an insurance quote for a -10?

I've looked around their website and all I can find are corporate office numbers not directly related to aviation.

Thanks in advance!

Go through a broker. Call Leah Ringheisen at Gallagher, or Haley Peek at BWI.

You will need to go through a broker, they don't sell direct.
Try Gallagher or BWI.

I'll be surprised if AIG is your best quote............she'll probably find something better with a different carrier.

Since you sound new to this: All but one aviation insurance company use independent brokers. In principle any broker will get you the same quote, so you shop for a broker by their level of service. Gallagher has a good reputation (disclaimer: thatís who I use). Your broker should get quotes from all the companies (there arenít that many). The one exception is AVEMCO. If you want a quote from them you need to contact them directly. Most Vans owners have found them very much more expensive.

AIG was by far the best quote I got for my RV-9A. Identical experience requirements and transition training, and almost identical premium between the quotes obtained by Gallagher and BWI. But the one from Gallagher included an open pilot warranty and waiver of subrogation. The one from BWI did not, and I was told that including those would add a lot to the premium.

IIUC, however...insuring an RV-10 can be a very different situation.

I don't know about praise...I have no idea if they're any good as an aviation insurance company and hope never to find out. But the premium quoted was about 1/3 that of Avemco, and required 2 hours of transition training as opposed to the 15 hours of transition that Avemco wanted.

I go through AOPA and for years AIG was my best option. However last year things changed and AOPA gave me two quotes to consider: AOPA and Global. The AIG quote had increased quite a bit while the new Global quote was much closer to what I had been paying. Guess what. I changed to Global.
