AXA Car Insurance Review 2020

  • 7 comprehensive core plans to choose from, depending on your needs
  • Add-ons provided can be bought at a lower price if you choose value pack add-ons.
  • The most basic comprehensive plan, SmartDrive Essential, has the usual Third-Party, and Fire & Theft related coverages, plus windscreen coverage, and 24/7 towing services.
    The 6 other more premium plans that precede Essential, will cover the above and more
  • Plans are pricier than most, not suitable for budget-conscious drivers
  • Choose SmartDrive Essential plans if you own a car that is no longer under warranty – can claim as long as you go to an authorised workshop.
  • Conversely, SmartDrive Flexi plans are best for new cars that are still under warranty.

    Epicly retarded claims process. What can be fixed in 3-4 days outside in a private workshop took more than 3 weeks through AXA. And they had the cheek to quote exclusions on my rims. I would quite literally rather die than give AXA my business ever again. These retards managed to make NTUC Income look fast, efficient and professional. And for those who have dealt with NTUC before, you know thats quite impossible. Yet AXA managed it. I will never again buy anything from or related to AXA.

Does my AXA Smardrive Car Insurance cover me out of Singapore as well?

It depends on the plan you hold on to but the basic policy covers West Malaysia and Republic of Singapore including all the islands (anywhere you do not need to show your passport). if you transit by direct sea route across the straits between Penang and mainland of West Malayisa, this can also cover. Lastly, you are covered when its a direct sea route across the straits between Changi point, Singapore and Tanjong Belungkor, Johore Peninsular Thailand but this is subjected to 14 days for each travel trip.

Anyone tried AXA Smartdrive Car Insurance before? Which plan should I go for?
Unfortunately, this is the only review from Seedly: https://seedly.sg/reviews/car-insurance/axa-smartdrive-car-insurance Generally when making a choice, you may wish to evalaute on whether you are comfortable with authorised workshops (and location), or if you prefer to go to your trusted mechanic. Personally, this is one of the first consideration for my own policy. Other than that, most of the benefits are pretty standard (unless we scrutinise one by one). On the whole, you need to evaluate whether you are capable to settle all the potential paperwork on your own and whether you need advice. If so, you may wish to work with your agent or to look for one. This is because when an incident arise, you will be able to seek advice from someone experienced. Accordingly, this gives you a peace of mind and allows you to become more confident in the choice that you make. I share quality content on estate planning and financial planning here.

AXA Car Insurance Review Verdict:

Pros:

  • great variety for plan personalisation - catered to different driver profile and needs
  • AXA car insurance plans will be ideal for those who already what coverage they want but can't find those permutations at other insurance providers and do not mind shelling out more money.

Cons:

  • Prices are not competitive, even for the most basic plan
  • However, the sheer amount of choices and additional packs available might be confusing and daunting to some.

Our Recommendations:

  • Choose SmartDrive Essential plans if you own a car that is no longer under warranty – can claim as long as you go to an authorised workshop.
  • Conversely, SmartDrive Flexi plans are best for new cars that are still under warranty.
