Despite being a relatively safe country to live in, the rate of motorcycle theft in Singapore has skyrocketed over the decades. If you find yourself feeling constantly anxious over the fact that your bike might get stolen or damaged, do consider enhancing your insurance policy with our new for old optional benefit.
With our new for old coverage, we will offer a new motorcycle replacement of the exact same or similar make and model should your motorcycle be stolen in Singapore or written off within the insurable period of this coverage. This is regardless of the prevailing selling price. In the event that we are unable to replace a brand new motorcycle of the same or similar make and model, we may offer cash compensation instead so that you can buy an alternative yourself.
However, kindly note that we cannot guarantee the acquisition of the new Certificate of Entitlement (COE). If your first bid of the COE is unsuccessful, we may, at our discretion, pay the published first successful bid price for that particular COE tender.
Getting the New for Old Motorcycle Insurance Coverage in Singapore
The new for old benefit is available as an optional add-on for drivers insured under the Comprehensive (COMP) cover type only. This benefit applies to motorcycles under three years old – which means that it will not be renewable once your vehicle reaches three years of age from the vehicle registration date.

What do I have to do if an accident occurs?
