What policies are available?

Comprehensive cover

Etiqa’s most comprehensive plan offers protection over and above a standard plan. It includes cover against loss or damage caused by accidents, floods or civil commotion. You’ll also get personal accident benefits and liability cover as standard.

This policy provides cover for loss or damage to your car which results from fire or theft. It’ll also offer you liability cover, protecting you if you cause damage to another person, their car or property.

Other benefits of getting car insurance with Etiqa

One of the attractive advantages of getting your car insurance with Etiqa is that you can customise your coverage with several different add-ons:

  • No Claim Discount (NCD) Protector. You can add on this benefit to maintain your no claim discount in the event that you need to make a claim. This applies only to policyholders who have at least a 50% no claim discount. This will allow you to retain your 50% NCD should there be a claim made against your policy within the period of insurance.
  • Adjustable Excess. Having this option means you can opt to have a cheaper premium but pay a higher excess should there be an incident of claims.
  • Have the freedom to choose your own workshop by opting-in to this rider.

What won’t be covered?

There is no cover available for a claim under your Etiqa Car Insurance policy due to:

  • Depreciation, or wear and tear to your car.
  • Mechanical or electrical breakdown of parts.
  • Damage to tyres, unless other parts of the car are damaged in the same accident.
  • Loss of use of your car or any other indirect or consequential loss.
  • Your car’s driven by an unlicensed driver.
  • Your car’s driven by someone who was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Your car’s driven by someone that is under suspension from driving.
  • Your car’s being used for any use other than the uses shown on the certificate of insurance.
  • Your car’s being used or driven when it is not registered under the road traffic act.
  • Death or bodily injury to the driver in the course of that person’s employment.
  • Loss or damage to property that is being carried by the car.

Bottom line

Etiqa is 69% owned by Maybank, the fourth largest banking group in Southeast Asia with more than 22 million customers worldwide in 20 countries. The brand is not new to Singapore – Etiqa has been protecting Singaporeans since 1961 with a wide range of general insurance plans. If you’re looking for a reliable car insurer, Etiqa Car Insurance is certainly worth considering. However, it is always good to take your time to compare across the many other car insurance available in Singapore to suit your needs.

How do I make a claim?

After an accident, you can take the following steps to make a claim:

  • Report and bring your damaged vehicle to one of Etiqa’s Approved Reporting Centres within 24 hours (or by the next working day, if the accident happened on a weekend or a Public Holiday).
  • If your car’s stolen, you must give Etiqa immediate notice of the theft, as well as make a police report. If you receive any official communication related to an accident involving your car, such as court documents, you must immediately inform your insurer before you respond.
  • If you are making a claim for damage to your car, you must write in to report within 14 days of the event.

Etiqa makes it easy to submit claims of up to S$5,000 through its 30-minute fast claims approval policy.
