We hope to make your renew car insurance as easy as possible. Below is the list of commonly asked questions about motor car insurance renewal. If none of these questions/answer address your concern, please feel free to contact us.
1) Is Your Insurance Premium Cheaper?
Comprehensive and Motor Third Party Fire and Theft will be liberalised. Liberalisation will drive fairer ways of pricing premium/takaful contributions based on risk profiles, which will encourage road users to be more responsible. Comparison of motor insurance premiums/takaful contributions before and after liberalisation:
Before 1 July 2017 - Determined by tariff rates based on model, age and engine capacity of vehicles, and discounts in the form of NCD.
After 1 July 2017 - Determined by individual insurance companies and takaful operatorsbased on individual risk profile.
2) How Do I know My NCD (No-Claim Discount)?
Your NCD entitlement is usually mentioned in your renewal notice from your existing insurer. However, you can check your NCD entitlement here.

7) What’s a “NO CLAIM DISCOUNT” (NCD) entitlement?
No Claim Discount (NCD) is given to the policy holders upon renewal of motor insurance policy if no claim was made against your policy within 12 months coverage. Once you have claimed on the motor insurance then your NCD will be forfeited and falls back to 0%.
8) Will I lose my NCD if I make a claim?
If any claim is made on your motor insurance policy during the period of cover, your NCD will be forfeited and revert to 0%. You will have to start to accumulate your discount in a new cycle. However, this excludes no-fault Own Damage claim and windscreen claim, provided if an additional cover for windscreen is purchased.
9) If I have insured more than one vehicle, will the same NCD apply for all?
No, one NCD percentage can only be applied to one vehicle only.
10) Can I transfer my company registered car’s NCD to my personal car?
No. You can only transfer your NCD to another vehicle that belongs to you (registered under your own name).
11) How much do I insure my vehicle for?
You are advised to cover your car based on Allianz agreed value at the time of renewal.
Example: In the event if your car is under-insured (insured for a sum less than it’s Allianz agreed value) at the time of any loss of damage, the Average Clause in the policy will apply when the insurance company settles your car insurance claims. You shall bear the difference and the rateable proportion of the loss when the market value of your car at the time of loss exceeds the insured value. For example, if your car is under-insured by 20% than its market value, the insurance company will compensate you 20% less for each claim.
If your car is over-insured (insured for a sum more than its Allianz agreed value) at the time of any loss of damage, the insurance company will settle your claims enough to cover the loss incurred up to the market value of your car. If you over-insured your vehicle, you would have paid higher but unnecessary premiums.
12) What should I do when I meet an accident?
After an incident that could lead to a claim you should notify Allianz immediately by calling the Allianz Accident Roadside Assistance (ARSA) Hotline: 1-800-22-5542 if you required towing service to send your car to Allianz approved panel workshop only. (Please note thatthe towing service is only cater for Comprehensive Cover).
If there is a third party vehicle involved, note down the vehicle registration number, nature of damage sustained and the insurer concerned.

You may send your car to any of Allianz or ETiQa approved panel workshop nationwide. Allianz & ETiQa approved panel workshop will undertake to arrange the repairs.
