Ever wondered how to submit an insurance claim if you get into an accident with a vehicle from Malaysia? Here’s what you need to do for the insurance claim:

  1. If you have your own comprehensive policy, it is more convenient to claim against it instances of accidents with foreigns vehicles in either Malaysia or Singapore.
  2. If you wish to make a third-party claim against the insurance agencies in Malaysia, prepare the following documents and submit them to your own insurer:
    • Your vehicle registration card (photocopy)
    • Certificate of insurance, cover note or policy schedule (photocopy)
    • Identity card (photocopy)
    • Police report
    • A police sketch plan and key (if available)
    • Results of police investigation (if available)
    • Proof of losses incurred
    • An adjuster’s report with original photographs
    • Repair bill & proof of payment
    • Rental car bill (if the car was rented)
    • Other bills and receipts for other expenses incurred
  3.  Take a picture of the road tax disc of the Malaysia vehicle. This is because the Malaysia insurers will always ask for the above when the claim is filed against the Malaysia vehicle. Even if a police report is submitted, the insurer will still ask for the picture to prove accident with the related party.
  4. If you claim is unsuccessful and all other avenues have been exhausted; as a last resort, send documents in items 2 and 3 by registered post to either of the following:
