MSIG MotorMax Private Motor Insurance Review

  • 2 comprehensive plans for your vehicle: MotorMax, and MotorMax Plus
    The differences between them are
    (a) the amount covered in different areas, and
    (b) MotorMax Plus has transport allowance, vehicle replacement, and loan protection benefits.
    (c) MotorMax only allows repairs done at MSIG authorised workshops while MotorMax Plus gives you your choice of workshop.

  • Get medical expenses cover for policyholder, authorised driver and/or passenger (up to legal seating capacity) for both plans.
  • MotorMaxPlus offers $100,000 worth of car loan benefits to cover any outstanding car loan if the policyholder meets his/her demise in a car accident.
  • Both plans also cover you for emergency repatriation or evacuation in the event of a vehicle accident overseas (Malaysia and Thailand). This might be an attractive feature for drivers who frequently drive from Singapore to Malaysia and/or Thailand.

    MSIG MotorMax Plus Plan

    Just started with msig this year after comparing with a few other insurance companies based on price and claims coverage. Choose the motor max plus plan as it gives choice of workshop and any driver approved by insurance buyer. Price was only slightly higher than the basic plan so decide to go with it. Online application was smooth and got confirmation shortly after completing it online. Ably to pay in installment/ full. Called their hotline to enquire about the plan before applying for the plan and staff were helpful to answer questions.

    I have used MSIG's car insurance for 3 years. Can't comment on the claims process as I have not done any yet. I chose MSIG as it covers explicitly covers driving carpool services, which I do occasionally. The renewal process is quick. Their rates are comparable with the online motor insurance companies, with a trusted brand and big presence, so I will recommend to others to consider them.
