Don’t forget to renew your motor insurance cover before renewing your policy

Motor insurance is mandatory in Singapore for every vehicle on the road. If your car insurance policy is due for a renewal soon, it is well worth reviewing the benefits of your cover before going ahead with the renewal.

By now, you would have had your motor insurance for at least one year and should have a better understanding of the benefits that you, as a driver and your car will need.

Renewal is a good time to reconsider whether you would like to add more benefits or remove benefits that you don’t have any use for. When you renew your car insurance premium with InsureDIY, you get a chance to save money and a chance to reconsider your car’s coverage. In this way, you can ensure that you’re getting your money’s worth from a policy that will truly benefit you.

InsureDIY lets you view and compare the quotes offered by the top insurers in Singapore, such as MSIG, Sompo, NTUC Income, Hong Leong Assurance (HLA), Liberty, and AXA. All of these insurers offer comprehensive motor insurance for cars in Singapore.

They also offer a variety of benefits and add-ons as part of the policy coverage. InsureDIY allows you to customise your car insurance coverage based on your preferences.

A fuss free way to purchase a car insurance policy worth your money 

As soon as you have input the required details, InsureDIY will present to you a panel of car insurance plans for your selection, complete with actual premium rates. This fuss-free approach allows you to get multiple quotes without having to visit several websites to input the same details many times.

You get to choose the most value-for-money plan for your chosen benefits with Insurediy. Often, consumers think that price is the most important consideration. However, cheap premiums usually come with no-frills cover. Investing in a good policy with all-rounded cover is the best way to ensure you are well-protected in a claim event.

At InsureDIY, we help you make a detailed comparison between each features of a plan, presenting you with the most competitive premium rates at the same time.

Below are some of the optional benefits you can toggle to add-on or remove on InsureDIY:

Authorised workshop only benefit

When you take up an Authorised Workshop Only benefit, you are choosing to go with the Insurer’s panel of workshops when your vehicle needs to be repaired. Choosing this option can lower your premium significantly and should definitely be considered if you are not particular on the choice of workshop. If your car is relatively new however and you wish to send it to the manufacturer’s workshop, you should still opt for the “any workshop” option.

Loss of use benefit

Loss of Use benefit is a transport service provided by your insurer when your car is at the workshop due to a reported accident. You are either provided with a transport allowance or a replacement vehicle. This benefit allows you to carry on with your daily life, getting from one place to another without any loss.

No claims discount (NCD) protector

In Singapore, if you have been a good driver and haven’t made a claim against your policy, you are entitled to get a NCD discount upon renewing. The longer you hold a car insurance policy without making a claim, the higher your NCD discount will be. The limit is set at 50% if you have 5 years of claim-free driving.

NCD protectors are set up by the insurer to protect the driver’s NCD. While the NCD follows the driver, the NCD protector follows the insurer. If your existing NCD with your insurer is at 50%, despite having made a claim, it will remain 50% due to the presence of a NCD protector. If you opt to renew with a different insurer, you will be asked to show your claim history and your NCD will reduce back to 20%.

If a claim had been made, it makes sense to renew with your existing insurer to keep your 50% NCD. Otherwise, it is possible to also add-on a NCD Protector with a new Insurer, if the overall premium package is competitive.

Adding a NCD Protector will usually increase your premium by about 10%.
