TREVO has introduced TREVO Guard, a motor insurance renewal service accessible through the TREVO app. This service is one of TREVO’s initiatives to expand the ways it is helping car owners reduce the burden of car ownership.
With TREVO Guard, the insurance policies offered are also curated to focus on those with special policy features catering to the mandatory insurance needs of car owners in the modern P2P (peer to peer) car-sharing and e-hailing ecosystem. Currently, new motor insurance policies from Allianz are available via TREVO Guard.
“This new service builds on our R&D efforts to continuously offer innovative services and features to customers and tap on the capacity of our apps to serve as one-stop sources for everything drivers need to reduce the hassle of car ownership. Car owners in Malaysia often lead hectic lifestyles, so we wanted to make motor insurance renewal easier, faster and better via a convenient service plus added perks – to further free them from the worries that come with car ownership. This service is timely as demand for contactless renewal solutions has gone up exponentially since the rise of the pandemic. With our TREVO Guard renewal service, all users can also easily offset their insurance premiums by making their car available for sharing on the TREVO platform. To further reinforce the spirit of car-sharing, we also offer all customers a certain number of free car replacement days on our SOCAR and TREVO platforms when their cars are in the workshop,” said Leon Foong, Group CEO of SOCAR and TREVO Malaysia.
Perks For Early Adopters
As an introductory offer for the first 1,000 TREVO Guard renewals, car owners will enjoy a number of perks courtesy of TREVO. Perks include a Free Temporary Replacement Car of the same model or similar segment, for up to 7 days per year if the insured car is unable to be driven. Additionally, there is the complimentary use of a personal ‘buddy driver’ to drive them in their own car for 2x 2-hour trips per year. Meanwhile, TREVO Hosts who are among the 1,000 new renewals will also receive a cash rebate of RM128.
“At TREVO, we’ve seen more and more people embracing the P2P marketplace, in the 14 months since we launched. From the Klang Valley to our expansion into Penang, Kota Kinabalu and Johor Bahru, we’ve grown our membership to 121,000 people, with more than 4,600 cars listed. This is a clear indication that while private car ownership remains popular among Malaysians, they also want new ways to alleviate the burdens and hassles that come with owning a car. For TREVO, we want to improve the overall experience of car ownership, so with TREVO Guard, we are going beyond making motor insurance renewals more convenient for Malaysian car owners, by offering additional peace of mind through attractive benefits such as Free Temporary Replacement Cars, complimentary personal driver service for your own car, plus rebates for TREVO Hosts who are early adopters,” added Susan Teoh, General Manager of TREVO Malaysia.
