Warranty extension even for vehicles with a 6-year factory warranty

The DEFEND INSURANCE GROUP presents yet another innovation in its key product line of extended warranties. With the DIAMOND and CRYSTAL warranty programs, for vehicles that are still under manufacturer's warranty, it is now possible to extend the warranty for vehicles with up to 6 years of factory warranty and increase mileage for vehicles with 7-year factory warranty. They can also be effectively applied to brands such as: Hyundai, Mitsubishi, Renault or Kia.

If the vehicle owner does not arrange an extended warranty, he or she will lose all guaranties and protection in the event of a component failure when the factory warranty expires and it is not uncommon that a failure can actually occur. Moreover, the cost of repairs to the engine, transmission, brakes or clutch are typically in the tens of thousands of Czech crowns and can hit the family budget hard.   

The DEFEND Car Protect DIAMOND and DEFEND Car Protect CRYSTAL extended warranties from DEFEND INSURANCE provide peace of mind and keeps the burden of possible component failures and high repair costs at bay for a longer period of time - up to 7 years of vehicle age. It is therefore possible to arrange protection for additional years even for cars with a 5-year or 6-year factory warranty, which is provided on the Czech and Slovak market by brands such as Hyundai, Mitsubishi or Renault. You can also buy unlimited mileage for the cars with 7-year factory warranty which is offered by Kia.
"With few exceptions, factory warranties have not only a time limit but also a mileage limit. A 5-year warranty covering 100,000 kilometres, can expire for example as early as the third year and can be extended to the fifth year thanks to the warranty from DEFEND INSURANCE. With the increase in the so-called TOP UP, we are now allowing extensions of up to 7 years and unlimited mileage," explains Andrew Quirke, Managing Director of DEFEND INSURANCE GROUP.  

Tailor-made protection

The DIAMOND and CRYSTAL warranties begin when the manufacturer's warranty expires and provide broad coverage for mechanical, electrical and electronic failures. Protection is comparable to the manufacturer's warranty and benefits from a wide range of optional parameters including insurance period, limits of the insurance benefit, mileage limit per-year and deductible. This means drivers can tailor it to their needs and pay nothing extra. 

In addition, DEFEND has simplified the entry conditions for both programmes and increased the maximum possible mileage when entering the insurance. DIAMOND can thus be arranged for vehicles with a valid manufacturer's warranty with a maximum age of 3 years and 100,000 kilometres. For CRYSTAL, the mileage is up to 200,000 kilometres. 

"The innovations of our DIAMOND and CRYSTAL warranty programmes allow them to be applied to a wider range of vehicles, bringing new business opportunities and a significant competitive advantage to our partners. Coverage at the factory warranty level for up to 7 years of vehicle age with no mileage limit significantly exceeds the normal standard and provides our clients with unbeatable protection and peace of mind on the road. Moreover, the warranty also increases the value of the vehicle when it is sold," explains Andrew Quirke.
