Honda Malaysia has introduced an enhanced Honda Insurance Plus (HiP) insurance package for all Honda owners. First introduced in 2002, HiP has provided comprehensive protection and coverage to its customers. The new HiP package has been enhanced to deliver more benefits in terms of Rescue, Protection and Savings.
“As a car owner myself, I understand the importance of having the peace of mind knowing that my passengers and I are well-protected throughout the ownership of the car. The all-inclusive and wide-ranging HiP is the best insurance plan for Honda owners because it is developed by Honda, for Honda customers and with our Honda cars in mind. At Honda Malaysia, we are dedicated to offering competitive and comprehensive protection packages for our customers and this HiP plan has been designed to be one of the best in the industry. We believe that this exclusive insurance plan will be able to provide the assurance to Honda owners that they and their cars are well taken care of and they are able to fully experience the Joy of Owning and Joy of Driving a Honda car,” said Honda Malaysia Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Mr. Toichi Ishiyama.
Rescue – The Honda Insurance Plus rescue team is on-call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and provides 24/7 towing assistance* in case of accidents, breakdowns and floods. In the event of a mishap, affected cars will be sent to an authorised Honda Body & Paint Centre within a 450 km round trip from the location. Meanwhile, roadside repair service offers free labour up to RM200 per event (excluding spare parts costs). Further, the 24/7 roadside repair service is also available for incidences such as flat tyre, out of fuel or flat battery. HiP members can also be assured of an efficient and hassle-free claim assistance, with constant updates during the claims process.
Protection – HiP members are provided with high quality workmanship on all body and paint repairs at all authorised Body & Paint Centres. Only genuine Honda parts are used for repairs. These parts come with six months or 10,000 km warranty. HiP members whose cars are repaired at an authorised Body & Paint Centre will receive speedy pre-approval for claims below RM20,000*. Besides that, HiP members will be given medical assistance (minimal fees apply) such as medical referral and arrangement of appointments, dispatch of medication which is not available locally, and medical evacuation or repatriation if required. As an additional new protection benefit, 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.
Savings – Honda Insurance Plus enables members to enjoy the benefit of Savings which received the most enhancement in the overall package. The extended coverage terms and better savings from replacement costs are meant to help ease the financial burden of HiP members. The vehicle age term for the HiP 100% insurance payout* based on the agreed value if the car is stolen or severely damaged in an accident, has been upgraded to 13 years, from 10 years. Other newly introduced privileges include Unnamed Driver where HiP provides coverage for all drivers under private registration with no additional names and compulsory excess payment required; flood allowance of up to RM1,500*; special relief allowance of RM1,500* in the event of theft or total loss; and RM1,000* for lost key reimbursement. Additionally, HiP members are also entitled to 100% coverage for 10 years with no betterment fee that allows old parts of a Honda car damaged in an accident to be replaced with new original parts.
All existing and new Honda customers can renew and apply for HiP at their nearest Honda authorised dealer.
