Here are the tips to pay less for your motor insurance.
1. Put a reminder in your diary two months before the expiry date of your motor insurance policy.
2. Get the following particulars of your motor car:
Particulars of car (model, engine capacity*, year of registration, market value*)
Particulars of owner (age, years of driving experience, occcupation)
Type of cover (comprehensive, third party only, third party with fire and theft)
No-claim discount for past year
Any claims during the current year?
Previous year's premium
* these data are optional and may not be asked by some insurers (as they can figure them out using your car model).
Normally, you ask for Comprehensive cover. If your car is too old, the insurer may offer Third Party cover only.
3. Get the hotline number of the top motor insurers, e.g. NTUC Income, AIG, AXA
4. Give a call to the hotline and ask for a quote. Ask them if you give you a discount for calling them directly. If they charge a higher premium than for your previous year, ask them why they are charging more. (They may give you a discount to attract your business).
5. If you are not sure about the quality of the claim service, call the claim hotline now (i.e. do not wait until you have an accident) and see if it is easy to get through and if the staff is polite and friendly.
6. Make your decision two weeks before expiry.
Here are the contact numbers of the insurance companies that are active in motor insurance. You can send a fax to them or call their hotline to ask for a quote for your motor insurance.
