- If the accident involves a Malaysia registered vehicle in Malaysia, please report the accident at our Accident Reporting Centres in person, bringing along a copy of the Traffic Accident Report lodged in Malaysia and other relevant documents from the local authorities (if available);

Once particulars have been exchanged, call any of our Accident Reporting Centres hotlines for advice. If the accident vehicle cannot be driven, the Accident Reporting Centres will arrange for a tow truck. If the vehicle can be driven, you should drive your accident vehicle to the Accident Reporting Centres for reporting.
At the Workshop
- If you are claiming under your policy (Own Damage (OD) Claim):
(For Comprehensive Coverage Only)
Depending on the terms of the policy, you may choose to bring your vehicle either to the Distributor or our Authorized Workshops (AutoSafe Plan). For vehicles insured under the AutoSafe Plan, it is compulsory that the vehicle be sent to our Authorized Workshop for repairs. Excess may be applicable. The distributor or workshop would handle the claim on your behalf by submitting a preliminary estimate of the repairs to our office. Following an inspection by our surveyor (on a case by case basis), we shall proceed to authorize the distributor/workshop to carry out repair works accordingly.
- If you are claiming against the insurer of the Third Party:
You may appoint workshops from our authorised list or your preferred workshop to handle the claim on your behalf. Please note that if you should choose this option, you will not be able to revert to your own insurance policy for indemnity (Please refer to General Condition 5 (b) of your Policy Jacket).
** In the event you receive a third party claim from the owner of the other vehicle(s) or his/their appointed representative, please contact us @ +65 6389 6116 and forward the documents received to our office immediately upon receipt of the documents.
Our policyholders are required to e-file their motor accident report within 24 hours of the accident or by the next working day with their accident vehicle (before any repair), no matter how trivial or even if there is no visible damage, and irrespective of whether you are claiming from any insurers or third parties, at the following centers:
