1. Agreed Value, instead of Market Value

When your car is stolen or destroyed in an accident, you will get the full sum insured. No questions asked about how much the car is worth at the time of the crash. Without Agreed Value, your vehicle is insured at Market Value. Market Value means that when you have an accident, the insurance company will only pay what the car is worth. Even after only one month, the car value can have dropped and lost some of its value, so that you get less money from the insurance company.

2. All Drivers are included

This means that you do not need to list the names of people who drive the car because all drivers are included with Etiqa Takaful. No need to add additional drivers for RM 10.

3. No excess during an accident

With “No Excess”, you do not need to pay some of the damages out of your pocket, when you have an accident.  Some insurance and takaful company have written in their fine-print that you will need to pay some money, also called an excess, when you have an accident. With Etiqa Takaful, there is no excess for people who are above 21 years old.
