View the campaign here to learn more about Liberalisation of Motor Insurance:
The first phase of the Liberalisation of the Motor and Fire Tariff was introduced on 1 July 2016. During this phase, insurers and takaful operators were given the flexibility to offer new motor products and add-on covers at market-based pricing.
Effective 1 July 2017, premium pricing for Motor Comprehensive; and Motor Third Party Fire and Theft products will be liberalised where premium pricing will be determined by individual insurers and takaful operators.
Premium will take into account broader risk factors that will drive fairer pricing; greater innovation on new products tailored to consumer needs with improved services; and sustainable motor insurance protection for consumers over the long-term at competitive prices.
