Frequently Asked Questions

Is my policy still valid if I have carried out modifications to my car?

Yes, your policy remains valid even if you have had modifications done to your car, provided these modifications are LTA compliant and/or approved. Additionally, if you have a car camera, in-vehicle entertainment system and/or solar film in your vehicle, DirectAsia’s optional benefit “My Accessories” can cover these modified accessories at an additional premium.

In what countries am I insured to drive?

Your car insurance coverage will apply as long as your car is in Singapore, West Malaysia and Southern Thailand (this is the part of Thailand within 80km of the border between Thailand and Malaysia).

We also cover you when your car is crossing the straits between Singapore and Tanjung Belungkor, Johor and when you cross the straits between West Malaysia and the Malaysian islands offshore of West Malaysia.

Is my COE covered under the insurance policy?

Yes. We usually factor COE in with the market value of the car. In this regard, our appointed surveyor usually scrutinises various media (print and online) for similar vehicles of the same/make/model and year to establish the prevailing market value of your car.
