Terakhir Diubah : 10:29:30 - Rabu, 13 April 2022
Hi, Sahabat! If you have vehicle insurance, you must recognize some insurance terms so as not to get confused.
When purchasing a vehicle insurance product, you will be introduced to the term Own Risk (OR). Own risk can be interpreted as payment of compensation costs made by the vehicle owner or the insured for any loss and or damage that occurs when submitting a claim. If you do this, it means that you already know your responsibilities as a vehicle owner. As a form of your sense of responsibility to always be careful when driving. The standard, in accordance with OJK Letter No. 6 of 2017 stipulates that the current OR fee is a minimum of IDR 300,000 per incident.
Please note, standard car insurance policies actually only cover loss or damage caused by accident, collision, impact, overturning, slipping, or falling; evil deeds; theft; as well as fire and all risks covered by the motor vehicle insurance policy. However, if due to a disaster caused by natural disasters such as rain, flood, tsunami, hurricane, hail, tsunami, a product is provided in the form of an extension to protect your car from the causes mentioned above.

11th Anniversary Sahabat Insurance
PT Asuransi Sahabat Artha Proteksi (Sahabat Insurance) was formerly known as PT Bess Central Insurance and has been established since September 4, 1996, at the time named as PT AIOI Indonesia. On March 25, 2011, PT Asuransi Central Asia took over all shares from PT AIOI Indonesia who carried out the merger and transferred its assets and liabilities to PT Asuransi MSIG Indonesia.
New shareholders entered along with PT Asuransi Central Asia. In conjunction with the change in the shareholders structure, it was decided that PT AIOI Indonesia to change its name to PT Bess Central Insurance on May 26, 2011, after obtaining the Decree of the Minister of Finance Number KEP- 420/KM.10/2011.
The single presence policy regulation released by Otoritas Jasa Keuangan in 2018 states that the primary entity in the insurance industry may only hold one life insurance or general insurance company. The primary entity is required to merge or divesting shares if there is more than one life insurance or general insurance company. On this basis, PT Asuransi Central Asia decided to transfer its share ownership in the company, accompanied by several new shareholders in early 2020.

The Danger of Aquaplaning
Ever heard of Aquaplaning?
Aquaplaning is a condition in which a vehicle loses control where the main cause is puddles of water, such as rain and flooding. Water that is too large will make it difficult for the car to move or even slip. The main cause of aquaplaning is not only rainwater puddles, but can also be caused by water from other vehicles passing by. When the car passes through a slippery road due to water, it will be dangerous if you are not careful. Car tires will be difficult to control and can result in a collision or accident.
What are the characteristics of aquaplaning?
The first characteristic that can be felt is the sudden sound of the engine sounds louder than usual. This is because the engine that is exposed to the puddle too hard will become hot enough to make a sound.
Sudden change of clutch in gears. Though, you didn't. This condition will make the speed of the vehicle becomes faster so that it is out of control. The next characteristic is, the car feels lighter. This is due to the greater water pressure that can lift and float the car.
In addition, the back of the car on the sides will feel floating. This condition is called fishtailing.
When this happens, slow down slowly and straighten the steering wheel. Do not brake suddenly, find a safe place to stop to avoid an accident.
