Loanstreet.com.my is a leading provider of personal financial products and a comparison site in Malaysia. It recently launched its online insurance agency service, offering customers a fast and hassle-free way to purchase motorcycle insurance and renew road taxi online.

 

This latest endeavour aims to address the alarmingly low rate of insurance coverage purchased by motorcyclists in Malaysia. A recent survey by The Malaysia Automotive Association (MAA) released vehicle registration data up to June 30, 2017, with the total number of vehicles on the road standing at more than 28 million units. Of this number, 45% are motorcycles, and it is estimated that a significant portion of these motorcyclists are uninsured.

 

According to a research paper published by IATSS Research in Malaysia in July 2012, Malaysia has the highest road fatality risk (per 100,000 population) among the countries in Southeast Asia, with more than 50% of the road accident fatalities involving motorcyclists. This study drew its analysis from data collected from the police, government authorities, as well as national and international research institutes. The analysis reveals that the majority is motorcycle riders (89%), aged between 16 and 20 years old (22.5%). Although fatal motorcyclist crashes mostly involve ‘passenger cars’ (28%), motorcyclists are responsible for 50% of the collisions either by crashing singly (25%) or with other motorcyclists (25%).

Jared Lim, Managing Director of Loanstreet, expressed his reasons for launching the new online service,  “We wanted to get the number of uninsured motorcyclists off the road by providing a quick and easy online insurance agency service, and we also wanted to offer a fast-online car insurance agency service which can be completed via a smartphone in just 5 minutes”.

Here's how you can use Loanstreet Insurance Online:

Step 1 - Enter Vehicle and Personal Information

Step 2 - Agree to the price and make payment

Step 3 - Receive a cover note via email

Jared also saw the need for road tax renewal service to be made available on its platform. He added, “Road tax is sometimes forgotten and neglected. It’s also a bit of an annoyance sometimes but it’s essential so we added an easy online road tax service to complement both motorcycles and car insurance”.

 

Finology Sdn Bhd (Finology), a Malaysian FinTech company is the technology provider behind the service which has enabled seamless integration of backend technology systems to power end-to-end online insurance quotation and purchases. Finology has been engaged in Insurance Technology (InsurTech) for more than two years now, enabling various insurers and agents to offer their products and services online.
