Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad is the first insurer to provide three benefits – accident cover, hospital income and an All Special Perils Full Sum-Insured Protection- with its latest product Allianz Motorcycle Plus with no added premium.
“Motorcyclists are very vulnerable on the road. In 2018, motorcycles were the leading cause of motor vehicle fatalities with a total of 3, 179 deaths. Just because you put on a helmet, and buckle up, does not mean you are protected against accidents or injuries. There is just not a lot of protection when you are on two wheels. And as insurers, we had to ask ourselves – what are we going to do about that?” said Horst Habbig, Chief Sales Officer for Allianz General.
“That is why we are going above and beyond what is profitable and coming up with a product that is necessary and looks out for our customers. While conventional motorcycle insurance coverage protects the vehicle, Allianz is doing one better by offering protection for the vehicle and its rider. With Allianz Motorcycle Plus, we are able to offer the millions of motorcycle owners in Malaysia, an affordable product with the best protection and the best coverage that money can buy,” added Habbig.
Motorcyclists can now choose between either Allianz Motorcycle Plus (Comprehensive) which comes complete with Accident Cover of RM5,000 (for death or permanent disablement), Hospital Income of RM50 a day (up to 60 Days) and the All Special Perils Full Sum-Insured Protection (covering flood, landslides or any natural disasters) or Allianz Motorcycle Plus (Third Party Only) which offers Accident Cover of RM5,000 (for death or permanent disablement) as well as Hospital Income of RM50 a day (up to 60 Days) with no added premium.
From 1 May onwards, those riding motorcycles under 245cc can purchase Allianz Motorcycle Plus to enjoy added protection at no extra cost.
