Desjardins Insurance Review
Online reviews do not necessarily portray insurance companies accurately. This is because, statistically speaking, people are more likely to leave a review when their experience is bad than when it is satisfactory. For this reason, we recommend you do not base any decisions solely on online reviews.
Like some other insurers, Desjardins has no Google reviews. Some companies use this strategy to prevent frustrated customers from damaging their online presence.
We did find some reviews about Desjardins on Insureye — and they are mostly negative. The insurer only managed one star out of five stars, which is a poor performance by any standard.
