Zurich’s car insurance only provides coverage for your car in Malaysia, Singapore and Brunei in accordance to Malaysia’s law. If you wish to drive your car to Singapore, you are required to have coverage against Legal Liability to Passengers (LLP) in accordance to Singapore’s law. However, LLP is not covered by this policy so you will have to purchase Endorsement 100 which provides coverage for your liability for death or bodily injury of passengers.
