Mercedes-Benz Services Malaysia (MBSM) has three new protection plans for all Mercedes-Benz car owners. The plans, known as Star Protect and Star Protect Plus, along with the new Takaful plan cover things from offering owners a replacement car for up to 20 days to reimbursement of car key replacement cost.
The new premium motor insurance and takaful plan cover things such as temporary Mercedes-Benz replacement vehicle benefit for up to 20-days per period of insurance if the car is sent to an authorised Mercedes-Benz workshop for accident repair.
Of course, basic loss or damage are still part of the plan. These include damage from accidental collision, burglary, housebreaking, theft and attempted theft, or any malicious acts, and liability to third parties.
Basic loss and damage also cover additional protection for impact damage caused by falling trees due to convulsions of nature.
The towing assistance will also see a comprehensive plan upgrade which includes unlimited towing distance for breakdown and accident with one-way toll charges of up to RM30 included.
Under the towing plan, customer can utilize the flood towing for up to six occurrences, 24-hour minor roadside repairs and free assistance in arranging value-added benefits that offer accommodation, taxi transportation, and cross-border towing services. Customers will only have to pay for the value-added benefits if used.
The plans also include coverage for all drivers of a car, both individually-owned and company-owned, even if a driver’s name is not stated during the insurance submission process.
The packages also offer owners car key replacement, compensation for loss of possessions as a result of window snatch theft, flood relief allowance for damage due to flood, and personal accident coverage for the driver and up to four passengers.
Star Protect Plus will come with an additional four tyre and four rim coverage to ensure protection at every turn. This provides protection for accidental damage caused by road debris or curbing which can adversely impact the resale value of a car, as well as optimum vehicle performance.
