Please read all the related documents to make sure you understand what covers are provided and the terms and conditions of the said covers. Also, the Certificate of Insurance in the Policy Pack should always be kept in the insured vehicle as proof of insurance.

- Certificate of Insurance
- Frequently Asked Questions
- Receipt of Payment
- Do I have full insurance cover immediately after the product purchase?
Yes, but only a third party insurance cover is guaranteed immediately after receipt of payment. The additional cover(s) will ONLY take effect after the inspection of your vehicle within 72 hours after receipt of payment. Failure to facilitate the inspection of your vehicle within this timeframe may lead to a cancellation of the policy.
- Will I be required to provide additional documentation during the vehicle inspection?
Yes, if you have not provided us the required documentation during product purchase, you would be required to provide such documentation during the vehicle inspection. The required documentation includes;
- A copy of your Driver's Licence
- A copy of the Proof of Ownership Certificate
- A copy of the Vehicle Licence
- What is the appropriate value to insure my vehicle?
You are expected to insure your vehicle using its market value. The market value of your vehicle represents the cost of replacement of your vehicle with another one made by the same manufacturer, in the same year and of the same model and specifications (the colours may vary from that of the insured vehicle).
- What is Under-insurance and what is the financial implication as a result of this?
Under-insurance occurs when you insure your vehicle for a value lower than the market value. In the event of a claim, the settlement amount will be prorated in the same proportion as the underinsured value compared to the actual market price as at the date of the claim (please refer to the appropriate clause on your Policy Document).
- What is an “Excess”?
An Excess is a portion of the claim amount you are required to bear in the event of a claim. It is compulsory on all motor insurance policies to ensure reasonable caution is exercised by the insured when using the vehicle. However, Excess will not apply to you if you purchase our “No Excess Charge” (Excess Buy Back) option.
