    FWD Classic Plan

    [Customer Service] FWD has a great customer service team. It's very easy to get in touch using the chatbot or hotline. Agents are also friendly and helpful. [Purchase Process] One of the things I like best about FWD. It's so easy to buy online. Great user interface, simple journey, from quote to checkout, it was a breeze. [Insurance Coverage] Coverage is pretty standard/competitive. I like that FWD doesn't make you name other drivers or pay extra to cover them. Anyone you trust to drive your car gets covered (other than young drivers under 26—that's a pretty standard extra) [Others] I received an SMS and email 2 months prior to my renewal date to renew early for 2%+3% early bird and loyalty discount. Plus, the site was offering a 25% promo code as well so I got a pretty good deal.

    Very good service from call centre staff. Simple to understand policy. Instant approval. The lifetime NCD coverage is a great bonus to have.

    Very good and patient customer service which I just called to enquire. As I was really unsure and like to know more, they are very patient and understanding with me. Also assisted to analyse and suggest which insurance plan suited me more. I find that is value for money. Also, once when I needed to make claim, it was very easy and fast in the process. 😀👍 definitely one of your choices to consider!

What Is FWD Lifetime NCD Guarantee?

This is a benefit that is uniquely FWD.

As long as you have a comprehensive plan with FWD, you are eligible for Lifetime NCD Guarantee when your NCD is 50%.

And once you get the LIfetime NCD Guarantee, it means that your NCD will remain at 50% no matter how many claims you make.

This doesn't mean that you should get into more accidents, because even though your 50% NCD is guaranteed, your premium might be affected.

What Kind Of Add-Ons Are Available With FWD Car Insurance?

Want to add even more protection or flexibility? Choose from options like:

  • 1. NCD Protector : Protects your No-claim Discount of 30% or 40%. Good for one claim only
  • 2. Overseas Booster: Enhanced emergency assistance and coverage while driving in Malaysia and parts of Thailand
  • 3. Young Driver Excess Waiver: Option to pay more to waive the high excess for young drivers (27 years old and below)
  • 4. Your Preferred Workshop: For the flexibility of choosing your preferred, non FWD authorised workshop
