Tell me more about Tune Protect Home Easy

How much premium do I have to pay?
Tune Protect Home Easy is affordable, offering more than 40% in savings compared to the Malaysia home insurance tariff rate.
Your premium will depend on the sum insured amount. Additionally, you will also need to pay RM10 for Stamp Duty and a 6% Service Tax.
How much should I insure my home and valuable contents for?
You should cover your house based on the market value of your property at the time of loss and damage. In other words, your total sum insured should correspond to the cost of rebuilding your house and replacing its contents.
However, the market value always consists of land value, hence you can always use Building Cost Calculator by PIAM (Persatuan Insurans AM Malaysia) as a guideline. Or if you have a bank loan, your bank will inform you of the minimum amount that you need to insure your property for.
What if I have an existing home insurance policy with the bank?
You can switch out from your current insurance policy easily at any time. Here are the 4 easy steps that you can quickly refer to:
1. Find your current insurance policy and check its expiry date.
2. Purchase Tune Protect Home Easy plan and ensure the sum insured is the same as your bank's policy.
3. Prepare these documents to be sent to the bank: (i) A self-arranged home insurance letter - sample here, (ii) Specify your mortgagee, and (iii) Your new Tune Protect Home Easy policy.
4. Wait for the bank to acknowledge your self-arranged Tune Protect Home Easy policy.
Tune Protect has a handy guide available with more information on this. You can check it out here.
Can I cancel my home insurance policy?
Yes, you may cancel your home insurance policy. However, prior to cancellation, you should notify Tune Protect Malaysia by way of a written notice. Upon cancellation, you will receive a partial refund of the premium provided you have not made any claims during the insurance period. You will also get a full refund if you are within the free look period.
