Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia (MBSM), the financial services arm of Mercedes-Benz Malaysia, today introduced two new insurance and takaful plans under the Mercedes-Benz Protection Programme for Mercedes-Benz owners in Malaysia.
The new Star Protect and Star Protect Plus insurance and takaful plans, billed as a “first-of-its-kind” in the premium motor insurance and takaful category, offers a temporary Mercedes-Benz replacement vehicle benefit for up to 20-days, if the insured car is in an authorised Mercedes-Benz workshop for accident repair.
The plans also include new benefits such as a unlimited-mileage nationwide towing service for breakdowns and accidents, and even floods. Under the towing plan, customers can also utilise the 24-hour minor roadside repair service, as well as free assistance in arranging value-added benefits such as accommodation, taxi transportations, and cross-border towing services – customers will only have to pay for these benefits if used.
As standard, the new insurance and takaful plans now cover basic loss or damages resulting from accidental collision, burglary, housebreaking, theft and attempted theft, or any malicious acts. Additional protection is also provided for impact damage caused by falling trees.
Additionally, the new packages also offer coverage for car key replacements, compensation for loss due to window snatch theft, flood relief allowance, as well as personal accident (PA insurance) coverage for the driver and up to four passengers. The Star Protection Plus plan offers additional tyres and rims protection – the only difference between the two plans.
The new insurance and takaful plans are underwritten by Allianz General Insurance, AmGeneral Insurance, MSIG Insurance, Zurich General Insurance, and Zurich General Takaful. Star Protect and Star Protect Plus insurance and takaful plans are now available at all authorised Mercedes-Benz Malaysia dealerships. More information on the new insurance plans can be found on the MBSM website, here.
