Have you ever wondered, why it is hard to find on the internet who the best car or motorcycle insurance company is in Malaysia? The simple answer is that we pay less attention to insurance, because the topic is difficult and we rely on insurance agent to help select the right insurance. Also in 2015, the price or premium for car insurance is almost the same across all insurance companies. Read our article on Detariffication to learn more.
Are all the insurance companies the same?
Let me tell you, it is not true. Malaysia has currently over 30+ companies that sell insurance. 27 companies are allowed to sell car insurance. 8 of those 27 companies are Takaful companies. Takaful means that the companies follow Islamic law and are mostly mandatory for Muslims. In the next graph, you can find the top 12 companies that make up 80% of the market motor insurance market.
