Asia (Northbound Travel) Private Car Insurance

A long-awaited scheme for Hong Kong’s private cars, “Northbound Travel for Hong Kong Vehicles” (the Scheme), is now opening for applications and will be officially implemented from 0:00 on 1 July 2023. Local private cars can travel across the border to Guangdong via the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macao Bridge on a short-term basis.

Before embarking on the journey, it is important to purchase the necessary motor insurance and fulfil the relevant insurance requirements of both Hong Kong and Mainland China. Hong Kong private car owners can purchase a Unilateral Recognition Policy from qualified Hong Kong insurers. The motor policy extends the coverage to include the statutory third-party liability motor insurance in Mainland China, allowing private car owners to buy just one policy covering both regions, rather than two separate policies.

Winnie Wong, CEO & Executive Director of Asia Insurance, suggested private car owners to carefully consider the insurance coverage and aftersales service support provided by the related Mainland insurers. “It is essential for private car owners to understand the capability, experience and network coverage of the Mainland insurance companies, such as whether they provide aftersales service inquiries, emergency support in case of accidents, and handle claims efficiently.” She added.

Asia Insurance is honoured to be one of the local insurers taking the lead to offer a one-stop motor insurance service for the Scheme. In partnership with The People's Insurance Company (Group) of China Limited (PICC), a leading Mainland insurance company with a long-standing history, the strongest capabilities and the most extensive network, "Asia (Northbound Travel) Private Car Insurance" provides a comprehensive coverage for your cross-border driving trip, allowing you to enjoy a more hassle-free driving experience.
