Does an insurance company have different rates for auto insurance?
All insurance company has the same rates because the tariff is regulated by insurance commission. The only difference is the quality of service, such as the value of coverage provided and quality of services.


If the bank finances my new vehicle will they provide or require me to have auto insurance?
The bank will not provide you auto insurance for your vehicle, but some banks might offer you auto insurance as extra service from their partner insurance company, or let you choose which insurance company you prefer to cover your auto insurance. Most banks will not finance the vehicle loan if you don't have auto insurance. Because the car is your collateral, and you still have to pay the remaining debt even your vehicle got stolen or lost. While with auto insurance, the insurance company will guarantee the payment of your vehicle loan in case a car lost or stolen. Therefore, if ever your car got stolen or lost, you won't have a problem paying the debt to the bank, and you will be able to collect your previous payments from the bank. Since the insurance company will shoulder the full payment for your auto loan.


Why does the vehicle registration office require me to have a CPTL Insurance for registering my vehicle?
CPTL (Compulsory Third Party Liability) Insurance or liability insurance, is to protect the owner to third party bodily injury or an injury you might have cause to anyone while driving your vehicle. But does not cover the damage you have cause to third party vehicle or property damage, including your vehicle and yourself.


Having auto insurance for my vehicle is beneficial?
Just think this way and always remember, the general purpose of auto insurance is to assist you from the financial inconvenience by providing you a helping hand when the unexpected event does occur, such as damage to your vehicle and/or bodily injury to other people. In common terms of a vehicle owner, just like the spare tires that you always carry to help you with the replacement of the flat tire, or a helmet that protects you from crashing your motorbike.
