When you drive a car in Korea, your greatest barrier can sometimes be finding car insurance. Car insurance is mandatory in Korea so it’s really important to consider the brand and coverage very carefully, which is never that easy for foreigners.Recently, AXA Direct just opened up a comprehensive English insurance website!I checked it out and have all the details below. Thanks to the newly opened English website of a global insurance brand AXA,every service with car insurance is now available in English.
What is AXA?
AXA is a global insurance brand with 100 million customers in 56 countries worldwide.
Every year, global top 100 brands are chosen by reputable marketing institute ‘Interbrand.’
AXA has been chosen as the NO.1 insurance brand for 6 years in a row.
How can you find them in Korea?
1. Go to axa.co.kr and choose ‘English’ from the language tab on top.
The English site appears.
AXA provides quotes, service type confirmation, signing up and much more, all in English on the new site which makes it very accessible to expats in Korea.
On the AXA website, everything is readily available in English from contracts to claims.
Now choose your own insurance products and whatever else you need. Everything is in English so there’s no need to get help from a Korean.
The red button will “Get a quote in just 5 minutes”
In AXA English Website, even foreigners can easily get quotes
and sign up for their own car insurance.
AXA is one of the few companies in Korea to provide English quotes service online
Just enter your registration number (ARC), phone number, and car information.
Select your driver type, and then you see the lists of recommended packages that you can immediately subscribe to.
I timed the whole subscription process and it actually does take around 5 MINUTES!
Also, you can just press “Request a Call” for any difficulties.
They let you book a consultation call with exclusive agents for foreigners only!
My first year out driving in Korea, I got an overcharged insurance premium because I couldn’t understand Korean.
With a website like this the control is in your hands and you can get the insurance package that suits you. It’s very clear and easy to use and everything is available immediately.
As part of the service, AXA Direct will also provide emergency help in English so if you have an accident or break down or so on.
They even have a hot-line dedicated for English speakers, providing accident report
and emergency road service. There is also an app available where you can report and accident or call the help desk.
You can also get help in relatively minor emergencies.
If you’re locked inside your car, if the car unexpectedly stops due to fuel shortage, flat-tire, dead batteries, or for any trouble situations, AXA will come help you.
This is all available from the mobile app.
Can you get a discount?
AXA provides a variety of discount programs with some items like mileage option or black-box registration. With a mileage option, you pay as much as you drive and get additional discount for driving less.
(10% off for driving less than 5000km , 5.6% off for driving less than 9000km)
Other programs include black-box registration discount offered to those who drive with black-boxes, and accident-free discount offered for those who drive accident-free for 3 years.
These 3 discount programs can be offered all at the same time, providing as much as 21.5% off!
