May 8, 2020

Kuala Lumpur, 8 May 2020 – U Mobile announced today that with Movement Control Order guidelines easing, the telco has come up with several promotions that provide even more value to customers as they navigate the new normal. Top on the list of its Giler BagiLebih campaign is GoInsure 3, a Personal Accident (PA) insurance product, which will be offered free to all of its eligible customers who are Malaysians or Permanent Residents - existing and new, postpaid and prepaid. This initiative is a first for a telco in Malaysia. GoInsure 3 will be bundled with all its telco plans and it is especially relevant now as it also offers additional coverage for COVID-19.

Apart from GoInsure 3, the telco is offering up to 20% discounts on monthly access fees across its Giler Unlimited (GX) plans (with the exception of GX 30). Customers who sign up for its GX 50 postpaid plan from today onwards will enjoy it for RM40 monthly for 12 months, instead of RM50. This is on top of existing promotions for its GX 68 postpaid and GX 58 prepaid plan where new customers are able to enjoy the plans at RM58 and RM35 respectively when they sign up.

The third initiative under Giler BagiLebih campaign will see customers receiving a free upgrade to an iPhone 11 128GB when they purchase the iPhone 11 64GB with either Unlimited HERO P139 or Unlimited HERO P99. Depending on the chosen plan, customers may enjoy savings of up to RM1600 with this promotion.

Providing Free Insurance Coverage in New Normal

GoInsure 3 is underwritten by Chubb Insurance Malaysia Berhad and it offers Accidental Death Benefit, Accidental Disability Benefit, Accidental Medical Expenses Benefit, as well as, additional Bereavement Expenses due to Accident. During the first month of the free insurance period, the Bereavement Expenses will also cover death due to COVID-19 for those who are eligible and have successfully enrolled.  The total benefits from GoInsure 3 is valued at RM13,000.

The telco believes GoInsure 3 will be appreciated by its customers as it provides safeguards for a wide spectrum of unforeseen circumstances from accidental death at home to permanent disablement due to car accidents and death due to COVID – 19. Jasmine Lee, CMO of U Mobile shared, “U Mobile knows our customers are being affected by the pandemic in one way or the other, hence we are working hard to provide our customers with the relevant support. We are delighted to partner with Chubb Insurance Malaysia Berhad to provide GoInsure 3, making us the first telco in Malaysia to offer Personal Accident insurance that also includes additional coverage for COVID-19 to all eligible customers who are Malaysians and Permanent Residents. This means, regardless if the customer is new or existent, postpaid or prepaid, he or she will all be able to have some peace of mind amidst so much uncertainty as GoInsure 3 also includes Accidental Death Benefit or Accidental Disability Benefit, as well as Accidental Medical Expenses Benefit.”

“We recognise that the current situation may be profoundly unsettling for many and as an insurance company, we play a pivotal role in supporting customers by helping them to manage risks,” said Steve Crouch, Country President of Chubb Insurance Malaysia Berhad. “In view of the evolving situation with the pandemic, offering a product that comes with additional coverage for COVID-19 is timely and we are pleased to work with U Mobile to provide this broad Personal Accident insurance coverage at an affordable price to those in need.”
