zurich malaysia and plus malaysia expands protection for highway users

KUALA LUMPUR: Zurich Malaysia (Zurich) and PLUS Malaysia Bhd (PLUS) have expanded protection for road mobility with coverage that complements the highway concessionaire’s service to all PLUS highway customers.

The move is part of an innovation by Zurich to enhance and provide peace-of-mind for customers on the go via curated takaful plans.

The first product to be introduced under this collaboration between Zurich and PLUS is the Z-ProMiles Takaful.

Zurich General Takaful chief executive officer Shamsul Azman said the Z-ProMiles Takaful is offered to PLUSMiles members (PLUS rewards programme) that provides Inconvenience Benefits, Hotel Accommodation and Car Replacement Allowance should the customer require additional coverage while travelling on PLUS highway.

“This is on top of accidental death, accidental permanent disablement and accidental hospital income benefits,” he said.

Z-ProMiles Takaful is easily accessible and provides on-the-go protection that allow PLUS highway customers who are also PLUSMiles members to choose the coverage plan that best suit their travel plan needs and budget.

Shamsul said Zurich is committed to alleviating some of the challenges road users face when commuting as part of its care for customers.

“Through our collaboration with PLUS, we are able to introduce this takaful product through a simple digital application.

“This helps to provide customers peace-of-mind when they travel on PLUS highway network,” he said.

PLUS managing director Datuk Azman Ismail said the safety and comfort highway customers are the company’s primary concern.

“We continuously strive to provide value-added services and facilities to enable an enjoyable and comfortable journey on our highways. Over the years, we are guided by our 3E road safety principles of Engineering, Enforcement and Education.

“At the same time, we always look for potential partners and collaborators to help us elevate our proposition to our highway customers.

“PLUS is driving road safety through its highway patrolling team, PLUSRonda, Traffic Monitoring Centre, periodical road safety audits, continuous engagement and collaborations with the Police and Road Transport Department (RTD),” he added.

To apply for the Z-ProMiles Takaful coverage, PLUS highway customers can register as a PLUSMiles member via the PLUS App or visit the portal at

and participate in the Z-ProMiles Takaful plan.

The Z-ProMiles Takaful coverage covers certain traffic incidences on PLUS-operated highways namely the North-South Expressway (NSE), New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), Seremban-Port Dickson Highway (SPDH), North-South Expressway Central Link (ELITE) Highway, the Malaysia-Singapore Second Crossing (LINKEDUA), Butterworth-Kulim Expressway (BKE), and the Penang Bridge.
