AXA Affin General Insurance Bhd (AAGI) launched its SmartDrive – Sharing that are meant specifically for drivers carrying e-hailing (fare paying) passengers in Malaysia. The recent legalisation of e-hailing services will pave way for the protection of e-hailing drivers as comprehensive private motor insurance does not cover e-hailing services. This also means e-hailing drivers are exposed to risks from not being covered by their private motor insurance and potential claims by passengers in the event of accidents.
In supporting the government’s initiative, AAGI’s AXA SmartDrive – Sharing is a motor insurance add-on that provides e-hailing drivers with 24/7 comprehensive protection and peace of mind, whether they are driving for e-hailing services or private usage.
This plan covers:
- Loss or damage to a driver’s vehicle
- Liability to a third party
- Legal liability to/of passengers
- Driver’s personal accident up to RM10,000
Drivers will also enjoy AXA’s suite of services such as fast claims approval in 5 working days upon full documents submission and roadside assistance with AXA SmartDrive Assistance Plan, including a 24-hour hotline service, towing, six-month repair warranty and more.
