Motorcycle Insurance

Postby BundyBears » Thu, 17 Mar 2011 4:46 pm

Hi there
Does anyone know who does motorcycle insurance for expats who have been here for less than 12 months.
We are looking at purchasing a scooter but would also want insurance before we ride around.

I use Liberty. Started on expat license and still use them 2 yrs later on sg license, still can't find a better policy for me, despite ringing round for two hours this afternoon!
Agent is Etay 6294 6996

In the interests of fairness you can try AXA. Agent is ANDA 6554 2288

Or NTUC (google it. Online app and they call you back, or visit a branch)

Also Mitsui offer insurance in SG.
MISG (Aviva) too.

I found NTUC to be the cheapest for motorcycles.

Good morning,
actually i went to an insurance broker and end- up with liberty.
Paying about 600 S$ but for a 1000 ride.
And not too much questions, if i am expat, or sth like this stuff.
i received the same rate like the previous owner of my bike.
At the end, you shall fail to buy a scooter and get it registered in Singapore to ride without paying an insurance at first.
With the insurance paper than after you go to the LTA for the transfer of ownership.
Everything very easy and clearly organized, how it happens in Singapore.

best regards

NTUC does M/Cycle insurance for expats who have stayed less than 12 months in SG. AXA doesn't unfortunately, even though they are cheaper.

NTUC cost me ~200$ for my Bajaj Pulsar 180(2B bike), 5 years of overseas riding experience.

BTW, the way you have mentioned "would want insurance before we ride around". Its not a matter of choice, you have to get an insurance before you can register the bike in your name. Also, In Singapore the insurance is tied to the rider and the bike. You change bike, you change insurance and each rider on the bike needs his/her own insurance.

All the best!

I just found that MSIG is cheaper by 12% compared to my NTUC insurance. NTUC premium is $187 with 10% NCD for 3rd party, 31 yr old rider riding a 2B bike. MSIG's premium is $163. The best thing is MSIG is ready to give me a 10% NCD if I show them the renewal notice from NTUC. Wonderful.

Do you guys reckon anyone else can better that?

Thanks for the info folks

I am looking to insure a Vespa LX150 as a newly qualified class 2B licence holder on EP, and based on the info above

NTUC did give me a quote, $707 for comp and $454 for 3rd party

Liberty said they don't insure this model (?)

ANDA/AXA said they insure only if you have 1 yr+ of riding experience

Anyone have any other suggestions of places to try?

When came to claim, NTUC isn't that efficient.

I would say NTUC Income. They may have some of the cheapest insurances around for motorvehicles

+1 to direct - fill it outline and if you have a M/C pay online in monthly installments or one off. Print out your COI and you're done. No more ringing up moronic insurance companies.
