I attended a free driving class last December sponsored by the Dongdaemun Multicultural Center. The classes were for the written exam part and were conducted in Korean. Although I’ve been living in Korea for more than a decade, I am not fluent enough to understand everything taught in that class. I’m planning to take the test anytime this year, though. It’s a good thing that the written part of the exam is available in English.
If you’re planning to drive in Korea, one of the things that you NEED to get is car insurance. It could be tricky if you couldn’t understand what you’re signing up for. Fortunately, AXA Direct just opened up a detailed English insurance website.
What is AXA?
AXA is a global insurance brand, with 100 million customers in 56 countries worldwide. They have been chosen as the No. 1 insurance brand for 6 years in a row by “Interbrand”, the reputable marketing institute that ranks the global top 100 brands. Personally, it’s important to choose a reliable brand when it comes to insurance.
How to access AXA Direct in English
Visit the AXA Direct website and choose “English” from the language tab on top.
Many times when I visit the English site of a company, I only see information on the company itself and nothing useful about their services. I like that the English website of AXA Direct is very detailed and one could easily get information.
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.
GETTING A QUOTE
It’s fast and easy to get a car insurance quote from AXA Direct ~ IT TAKES 5 MINUTES! Just click on that red button that says “Get a quote in 5 minutes!”
In Korea, AXA insurance provides English 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.
Step 1: Enter your name and registration number (as in your ARC), phone number and tick on the “Agree to all”.
Step 2: Enter your car information by selecting the model and additional information.
Step 3: Enter your driver information.
Step 4: Get your quote instantly!
If you find any difficulty, you can also press “Request a Call” and book a consultation call with English-speaking agents.
Great, isn’t it? Getting a quote online, right after entering the needed information, gives you the assurance of not overcharging ~ which could happen if you just say yes to options you don’t understand.
AXA DIRECT IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT
In case of a traffic accident, AXA DIRECT provides a thorough and reliable claim service ~ in ENGLISH! They have a hot-line dedicated for English speakers, providing accident report and emergency road service. That’s a relief since it would be frustrating if one has to struggle in Korean after being in an accident.
AXA also offers quick and easy mobile service for accident report. You could do it right where it happened ~ on your mobile phone.
Just click on “Emergency Service”. Choose your emergency and tap your location on the map.
The insurance agent will come superfast and take care of everything for your claim service. They provide care service for drivers in relatively minor emergencies like:
– If you’re locked inside your car
– If the car unexpectedly stops due to fuel shortage
– Dead batteries
– Any trouble situations
AXA will come help you with its easy and reliable care.
Aside from a valuable English website for non-Korean speaking expats, AXA also has discount programs with some items that you could take advantage of.
1. Mileage option ~ you pay as much as you drive and get additional discount for driving less. Example, 10% off for driving less than 5,000 km, 5.6% for driving less than 9,000 km.
2. Black-box registration discount ~ if you drive with a black-box.
3. Accident-free discount ~ 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!
Find out more about the discounts by visiting AXA Direct now.
