Pre-Book Your Next Honda Online For An RM99 Fee
Digitalisation is now a huge part of the consumer experience and while some car companies have been a little slow to adapt, the race is now on to avoid being the last to game. Honda Malaysia is the latest company to create a dedicated car ‘Pre-Booking’ online platform for their customers.
With a minimum fee of just RM99, customers can now pre-book their next Honda in just four easy steps. We’ve outlined them below:
- Click ‘New Car Pre-Booking’ on the Honda Malaysia website and select your preferred dealer
- Fill in your details and select your preferred car model, variant, colour and accessories
- Review all information and model selection
- Make the pre-booking payment in the amount of RM99
Upon completion of these steps, customers will receive a confirmation email with all the details of the transaction as well as a reference number. Customers will be designated a Sales Advisor from their selected dealer within 72 hours of making the pre-booking.
We’re not entirely sure what comes AFTER the pre-booking process though or whether the RM99 is refundable should the booking not transition into an actual registered car. Also note that for now the number of dealers that are participating is still rather low, but this may change with time.
This platform also allows customers to track the status of their booking on their own devices. Right now the ‘New Car Pre-Booking Online Platform’ is only available on the company’s website, but by early 2021, it will be available on the HondaTouch app on iOS and Android devices.
Here’s the press release with more information.
