For those who insure with NTUC INCOME:

 

Theft Outside Singapore

So what do that mean?

 

If your bike market value is $1,500, you can claim $750.

If your bike market value is $4,000, you can claim $2,000.

If your bike market value is $7,000, you can claim $5,500.

If your bike market value is $12,000, you can claim $9,500.

If your bike market value is $25,000, you can claim $22,500.

sori i do not mean to be a thead spolier but just to comfirm ...in the even of accident will the agent handle A-Z to extradite the casualties back to singapore.?

 

all the causalties or immediated friends , need to do, is just to make the call to inform the insurance agent what happen, where when and how and be experdite back to singapore .

 

for example

 

personal testimony

 

My rider friend met with an accident in tapah malaysia with 3 broken bones cannot move and bike is total ...we call the ambulan and paid 50rm for (stablisation ), immediately call the insuarance angent , they arrange for her to be flown back on a Lear jetwith an attending doctors and acompaning friend to singapre and admitted to the singapore hospital in 5 hrs . the medical coverage was limited to abt $5000 and the chartered air fair abt 10kUS but we paid only a token sum of abt $70 for 5 days.(bike not included)

 

the cash payment was only 50 rm and abt S$70

 

It's important because we normally don't wish things to happen but if things happen we normalyy dont carry much cash with us. and this agent and insurance had come thru and make it work for us.

 

the agent and agency AXA thank you!

 

Disclaimer : I am not an insurance saleman not affliated belongs to any of it association but seeing this thread and experiencing what had works , it's just to share .

 

Pls do not PM me with regards about insurance pilocy, i know nuts.
