KUALA UMPUR, 15 September 2021 – Homegrown eWallet Boost today announced it has expanded its insurance offerings with the launch of CarProtect, a car insurance with comprehensive coverage for private cars. CarProtect offers customers protection in your pocket, alongside a seamless and convenient way to customise their car insurance plan best suited to their needs. Additionally, customers can also renew their road tax at the same time and have it conveniently delivered to their doorstep.
As an added safety feature, Boost built in an Emergency Button for CarProtect customers that gives them 24/7 access to car assistance. The Emergency Button is a fast and convenient way that directs users to the emergency contacts including insurance claims, panel of workshops as well as Boost’s roadside assistance partners in the event of an accident or breakdown. With this, users no longer have to frantically search the Internet or their phone book for help during an already stressful emergency situation.
CarProtect offers a one-year coverage for damage to the car insured due to accident, theft or accidental fire, as well as liabilities to third parties including bodily injuries, death, property loss or damage. Additionally, it also features customizable add-on coverages for windscreen, flood & special perils as well as a waiver of compulsory excess (inclusive of additional drivers). This insurance plan is underwritten by Great Eastern General Insurance (Malaysia) Berhad.
From now until 31 December 2021, the first 5,000 users to purchase their car insurance with Boost will receive RM100 cashback in the Boost Partner Wallet, whereas subsequent users will receive RM50 cashback. The cashback in the Boost Partner Wallet can be used to pay for any Boost transaction.
