What is iBanding’s Motor Insurance Award (MIA)?

The Motor Insurance Award (MIA) is an annual award organized by iBanding an independent insurance education website. The Award is given out to the Best Motor Insurance and Takaful companies voted by Malaysians.

Luke Roho, Director of, explains: “Our reports and rankings help Malaysians to understand better the quality of service that companies provide. In today’s age with so much information at our fingertips, it is not a secret anymore whether a company offers excellent or bad service. Malaysians freely write and share exceptional customer experience to help their friends and families to enjoy the same benefits. On the other hand, if they experience bad service, consumers are also quick to share it on social media to help others from making the same mistake. Our iBanding’s survey and model captures that experience independently and summarises it in a ranking so that every Malaysian can benefit from that information. “

Why is the Motor Insurance and Takaful Award important? How does it help?

Since the start of the Motor Detariffication or also known as “Liberalization of the Motor Insurance Tariff”, insurance companies are allowed to set their own prices for their motor insurance products, unlike the previous system where all prices were controlled by Bank Negara. With more and more insurance companies starting to charge different prices for their products, it has become increasingly important for Malaysians to compare not only the price for their motor insurance policies but also the quality offered by different companies.

Everyone can check the prices for insurance online now. Over 10 companies offer online quotation. You can find the latest list of insurance here.

However it is difficult to compare the service quality between the insurance companies. iBanding conducts the Motor Insurance Survey every year identify how good the customer service and claims service levels are. The best company in each category conventional insurance and takaful are awarded with the Motor Insurance Award.

Our Motor Insurance Award is not a recommendation to buy. Instead, it offers a guidance on which insurance or takaful company has provided the best service to the Malaysian that participated in the survey. This year over 8,600 Malaysians participate.

How does the ranking work? How are the winners selected?

iBanding ranks the insurance and takaful companies on actual feedback from Malaysian motorists with valid motor insurance policies. The final score is calculated based on multiple factors, such as customer satisfaction, years with the insurance company and claims experience.  The actual scoring model is not shared to avoid manipulation of the results. However, the model takes into account how much experience and touch points a customer has with their insurance company.

The Motor Insurance Survey is not paid or funded by any insurance or takaful company to ensure full independence, so that there is no conflict of interest.

Why are not all insurance companies listed?

The insurance survey was answered by over 8,600 participants, but not all insurance companies received enough response to give a fair judgement of their service and customer satisfaction level. Companies that did not reach the minimum number of responses are not listed.
