SINGAPORE - Media OutReach - 14 September 2021 - As Singapore continues to face an ageing population, car owners continue to drive regularly even in their post-retirement golden years. In order to allow senior drivers to continue enjoying driving in their later years without paying an exorbitant amount in premiums, Singapore's leading online insurer, DirectAsia, will be giving one-month free car insurance for all new customers aged between 56 and 70 years old covered under the annual car insurance policies except SOS Car Insurance. To further encourage seniors to get covered, DirectAsia will also be throwing in $50 worth of eCapitaVouchers for all senior drivers.
The Golden Years promotion will run from 14 September 2021 until further notice. Till then, all new DirectAsia customers who fall between the eligible age category will be able to redeem their discount for their annual premium and receive $50 worth of eCapitaVouchers which can be used in all CapitaLand malls. The vehicle to be insured under this promotion should not be insured by any other policy by DirectAsia, and the qualifying car insurance policy has to be incepted within 60 days of purchase. This limited-time promotion is only applicable to Singapore citizens and the insured individual has to be the main driver of the vehicle.
Extra Benefits and Less Cost for Seniors
Other than a free month of car insurance and cash vouchers for senior drivers between the age of 56 and 70, there are other ways you can save on car insurance premiums with DirectAsia as well, such as being a safe driver.
