Honda Malaysia has introduced an enhanced Honda Insurance Plus (HiP), an auto insurance plan exclusively for all Honda owners, first introduced in 2002. The new HiP package offers Rescue, Protection and Savings benefits and here’s what it entails.

RESCUE

This offers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on call service by the Honda Insurance Plus Rescue Team. It also includes 24/7 towing services in case of accidents, breakdowns and floods. The affected cars will be sent to any Honda authorised Body & Paint centre within a 450 km round trip from the location while the roadside repair service offers free labour of up to RM200 per event, excluding spare parts.

The roadside repair service also includes unforeseen incidences such as a flat tyre, running out of fuel or replacing a flat battery. As for insurance claims, HiP members will be updated constantly throughout the claims process.

PROTECTION

Honda Insurance Plus members can rest assured that only Honda Genuine Body and Parts replacements are used at all authorised Honda centres. They come with 6 months warranty or 10,000 km mileage warranty.

HiP members who repair their cars at Honda Authorised Body & Paint Centres will receive speedy claim pre-approval for claims below RM20,000. Also, HiP members are entitled to medical assistance such as medical referral and arrangement of appointments, dispatch of medications which are not available locally, and medical evacuation or repatriation if required. Even better, HiP members are now entitled to Personal Accident Coverage of up to RM15,000 in the event of Accidental Death or Permanent Disability in the Named Vehicle Car accident.

The 100% insurance payout based on the agreed value in the event the car is stolen or severely damaged in an accident for vehicles up to 10 years old, has been extended to 13 years. Other newly introduced privileges include Unnamed Driver whereby the HiP provides coverage for all drivers under private registration with no additional names and compulsory excess payment required.

Flood allowance is also provided, up to RM1,500, a special relief of RM1,500 in the event of car theft or total loss and RM1,000 for lost key reimbursement. HiP members are also entitled to 100% coverage for 10 years with no betterment fee that allows old parts of a Honda car damaged due to accident to be replaced with new original parts.

All existing and new Honda customers can renew and apply for the Honda Insurance Plus at any nearest Honda authorised dealers. For more information, customers can call Honda’s Toll Free number at 1-800-88-2020 or log on to the Honda Malaysia official site to discover more about the enhanced Honda Insurance Plus.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
