KUALA LUMPUR: Allianz Road Rangers, a premium roadside assistance service for the company’s motor comprehensive policyholders, is on standby with a fleet of more than 300 tow trucks to be stationed across the country, ready to assist in the event of a breakdown or accident.

Allianz Malaysia Berhad and Allianz General Insurance Company (Malaysia) Berhad (“Allianz General”) CEO Sean Wang said, “Safety is paramount and this should always be the first thing on our minds as we plan our balik kampung journey. We have more than 3 million motor policies and it is important that we are able to provide them with the best assistance and services, especially in their times of need. Our Road Rangers will be deployed at various locations to provide the necessary roadside assistance.”

Between 6 and 14 April 2024, Allianz General will standby its fleet at strategic locations that are accessible to major highways.

Last year, there were a total of 12,407 road accidents reported during Ops Selamat 20 in conjunction with the Hari Raya Aidilfitri festive period.

The Allianz Road Rangers provides comprehensive roadside assistance, including quick repairs if possible or towing to an accredited workshop for various vehicle segments, including Private Cars, Motorcycles, Goods-Carrying Vehicles, and Electric Vehicles (EV).

These benefits are subject to the entitlements and terms and conditions outlined in the policy. In the event of an accident, Motor Comprehensive policyholders can avoid touts and dubious workshops by calling 1-800-22-5542 for end-to-end insurance service.

There are some basic checks you can do to ensure your vehicle is road - ready. Ensure that your vehicle has been serviced and is good to drive through to your destination and back. Inflate your vehicle’s tyres according to the pressure recommended by the manufacturer. Check to see if your vehicle’s tyres have a sufficient thread for long-distance driving, or get it checked by a mechanic. Ensure no warning sensors appear on your vehicle’s dashboard, or bring it to a trusted workshop if there are.

Also, ensure that the battery water has been topped up sufficiently. And make sure you get enough sleep and rest before you embark on a long journey.

“While we are prepared on our end, I hope road users will take the necessary precautions to ensure that they safely reach their destinations for Hari Raya. On behalf of Allianz General, I would like to wish all Malaysians Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri.” continued Sean.

As of 31 December 2023, Allianz General maintained a 20.7% market share within the general insurance industry for motor vehicles.
