ING Insurance Malaysia was a division of the financial and insurance giant, ING Group out of the Netherlands.
Although for the time being it is still branded as ING in Malaysia, the actual Malaysian holdings of the company have been sold to the AIA Group and are currently being offered and maintained by them.
Fortunately, this has been a smooth transition and has left existing ING customers without many bumps or bruises in the process.
In Malaysia, ING insurance is one of the most complete companies in terms of insurance offerings. Whatever type of insurance you need, ING Malaysia has it.
One thing I will say to their detriment is that their website is very difficult to navigate if you are trying to locate specific information. Let me give you an example...
There was some confusion as to whether or not ING car insurance was still available in Malaysia. I'd heard conflicting reports so I went straight to the website to find out the facts.
Honestly, after my first dive in and searching for details, I nearly came to the conclusion that ING Direct auto insurance was no longer one of the products in their insurance line.
I gave up and worked on something else for a few days and then decided to tackle the research again. FINALLY, after turning over a few more stones (actually after going directly to the sitemap), I was able to uncover the happy news that ING car insurance is still available in Malaysia.
Whew! It really should not be so difficult to find that kind of info! Having said that, perhaps I was just having a slow day, but I didn't find the website to be intuitive at all.
So, if you're a Malaysian driver, ING car insurance may be just what you're looking for. One thing to note, however, that ING insurance for automobiles caters only to private cars. So if you’re looking for commercial vehicle insurance, you may need to look elsewhere.
There is more, too. You can usually save money by carrying all of your insurance with one company, so it's important to note that ING Insurance Malaysia offers life insurance, accident insurance, home insurance, and business insurance in addition to the ING Direct auto insurance mentioned earlier.
If you'd like financial advice beyond just insurance advice, you can get some excellent investment, savings, and mortgage guidance from ING Insurance Malaysia as well.
Education is important for Malaysian's, but we are all feeling the effects of the economic crisis, no matter what country we live in. These days, paying tuition can be a real challenge, and for some families, seemingly impossible. Talk to ING. They may be able to set you up with a flexible educational plan for your child to finish his studies, rather than give them up.
I've never been an ING customer myself (yet!), but I'm always interested in hearing the honest opinions of real consumers. If you've had any dealings with ING car insurance, or any of their other services, I'd like to hear about your experience. Add your review here!
