And that’s not the only good experience he’s had with Youi. In fact, there’s been a few. He said he had to make a claim on his house recently, and loved that he could handle most of it online and on the app. The times he did speak to Youi about the claim, they were nothing but friendly and helpful, ‘like real people’. Further to that, when Jason’s fiancé moved in, changing the policy was easy: just a few clicks on the app and they’re away.
The savings meant more than just a bit of more money to spend. Now stuck between jobs and with so much uncertainty floating around, the extra savings gave him more confidence to enjoy the quiet period.
“Cookie, the dachshund, loved it. She was getting heaps of walks, heaps more attention. More time at home with us. That was definitely a positive. Plus the chance to just chill out for a bit. Have a bit of quiet time. Catch up on sleep, catch up with friends online.”
“Yeah, that sort of thing. It was nice.”
There was another big change though. Jason, of all things, is also a racer. He races on water skis, being pulled behind a vintage 1976 timber water ski boat. And, as you can imagine, he loves it.
“Unfortunately, due to COVID, we couldn’t do that anymore. They would usually run down in Victoria. So that was that for us too. Yeah, a funny year.”
Jason’s in a new job now, a new industry altogether. Which has been a learning curve to say the least. But he’s looking forward to spending his savings, and getting back on the skis.
