Understanding the Benefits of Honda Insurance Plus (HiP)
Honda has been Malaysia’s favourite non-national brand for 4 years in a row. It’s not just their great products that have given them that result, but the value-added services they offer too. Honda Insurance Plus (HiP) is a good example of this.
Many owners who buy new Hondas drive away with HiP protection, and here’s what they benefit from:
With HiP, you don’t have to worry about whether your insurance package includes roadside assist. You’re covered 24/7. Just call 1800-18-1177 and you’ll get support sent to you anywhere in Malaysia.
Whether it’s an accident, a breakdown or a flood that has you stranded, an official tow truck will get you and your car to the nearest Honda Authorised Body and Paint Centre.
This rescue service also applies to minor issues like a flat battery or tyre or even an empty fuel tank. Up to RM200 of labour fees will be waived per event, but you’ll still need to pay for parts.
Because your car is guaranteed to be sent to an authorised Honda Body and Paint centre, it’s protected. Certified technicians with the right equipment will ensure a thorough and accurate diagnosis and repair is carried out.
Plus, you have peace of mind knowing that all replacement body and parts are 100% genuine with a 6 month/10,000km warranty from Honda. For pre-approved claims under RM20,000 repairs tend to be quick and customers can get their cars back faster than they might expect.
HiP’s other advantage is that it comes with extended coverage terms that you might not find on other insurance plans. Because it’s from Honda Malaysia claims with HiP also give you more savings on replacement costs. You can even get 100% pay-out in cases of car theft or total loss based on the insured sum. In addition, cars that are less than a decade old won’t be charged extra on new replacement parts for accident repairs (I believe what insurance companies call ‘Betterment charges’.)
HiP is available to existing and new Honda customers alike. You can check out their package details at your nearest authorised Honda dealer or head www.honda.com.my.
