Perodua Total Protect Offers Unrivalled Peace of Mind to Owners
Perodua and its insurance panel officially launched a “Perodua Total Protect” motor insurance programme today. This new programme provides additional benefits and long-term protection for Perodua customers.
The “Perodua Total Protect” provides full coverage of the sum insured for the first five years of the vehicle’s age.
“In the event of a total loss or theft, the customer is entitled to the full sum insured and not based on the market value at the time of the loss,” Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director Dato’ Dr. Zahari Husin said.
Perodua’s President and CEO, Datuk Dr Aminah Rashid Salleh was also present at the official launch.
“Perodua Total Protect” offers 10 years’ coverage on access, loading and betterment. This means that the insurance panel which under this programme will waive any additional or access and betterment charges up to 10 years.
In addition, this programme also gives advanced Auto Assist free towing service coverage. This includes 24/7 coverage assist (TnC apply).
“Those requiring assistance under the programme are welcomed to call our toll free number and we will dispatch a team to you,” Dato Dr. Zahari said.
This version of auto assist also offers roadside assistance, for example, to help change a flat tyre or jump start a battery.
Another advance feature under Perodua’s Auto Assist is the emergency evacuation service. In the event of an accident, the Auto Assist team will send those covered to the nearest hospital or medical centre.
The Auto Assist team will also contact members of the family or loved ones as a complementary service when utilising the emergency evacuation services.
When waiting for repairs, the Perodua Total Protect also offers alternative transport assistance by providing a discount for car rental services of up to 30% and even free hotel accommodation for accident cases.
The Perodua Total Protect Programme also covers flood damage reimbursement, loss of personal belongings from break-ins or vehicle theft and even non-insurance repair claims.
The programme also covers bereavement expenses and the coverage of this programme also extends to Singapore and parts of Thailand.
Above and beyond that, Perodua are also introducing a ‘GAP-RTI’ coverage. Those who opt for this will be able to ensure the vehicle for its full price for up to 5 years! In other words, a new Perodua owner will be able to claim the original purchase price of the vehicle in the event it is written off.
“Of course, with this programme, our customers are also guaranteed genuine parts when repairing their Perodua vehicles at our authorised after sales facilities,” Dato Dr. Zahari said.
“We welcome our customers and the general public to speak to our authorised sales advisors to learn more about Perodua Total Protect,” he added.
