Buying motor insurance and making claims (or not)
Make sure you know what’s covered under your policy
As you shop around for the most suitable insurance policy, be sure to also check what each policy does and doesn’t cover. There’s always a risk that you may find yourself in a situation wanting to make a claim, only to find out that you are not covered or have become ineligible for some reason.
Finally, a reminder for current/ future Grab drivers and those who like to drive to Thailand or Singapore. You need to be aware that basic insurance coverage doesn’t include situations where you use your car as a taxi (including e-hailing), to carry commercial goods, for racing, or for competitive purposes. You may also not be covered if you want to make claims for accidents that occur outside of Malaysia (e.g. Thailand or Singapore).
