By using big data and technology, we are able to understand customers better which is why our focus is to offer personalized insurance coverage and prices for every lifestyle and business needs because we believe every customer is unique. We are also helping and will continue to help companies in Thailand like Grab to integrate insurance into their business and ecosystem so that insurance is offered in a more meaningful way to customers ultimately.

We are honored and happy to be collaborating with Grab to support the rising gig economy. We share the same vision with Grab and will continue to help Grab ensure that more drivers who own cars have a peace of mind that their cars, themselves as well as for their riders stay protected while driving Grab and that they get access to this especially when they spend plenty of hours in a day on the road."

Our mission and commitment to our driver partners since day one is to better their livelihoods as this will in turn lead to better quality service for passengers. Beyond our current offering of free personal accident insurance coverage for driver partners and passengers for all Grab rides, the partnership with Sunday will provide more innovative insurance solutions for our driver partners to protect their livelihoods, their vehicles and families. We want to continue to ensure the safety and well-being of our driver partners, as we look forward to onboarding more new drivers and expanding our business to better serve the daily essential needs of consumers.
