MiWay launches discounted car insurance premiums for work-from-home clients


Leading short-term insurer and financial services provider, MiWay announced the launch of MiWheels At Home – a new car insurance cover that is designed specifically for South Africans who work from home.

This comes at a critical time in the country and is relevant in context of the changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown regulations.

MiWay clients who work from home – either full or part-time – will save up to 20% on their insurance premiums. Having already given clients the benefit of two premium discounts amounting to over R40 million for driving less during lockdown, MiWay is launching this product in line with its core purpose of offering products and services that enable clients to live their way.   

The MiWheels At Home cover is designed to respond to an ever-changing environment over the longer-term and not just over the current lockdown. “We’re committed to supporting our clients as their personal circumstances and lifestyles change. COVID-19 has brought about unexpected changes that will last beyond lockdown and become the new reality for many South Africans. If you work from home and thus drive less, you should pay less. Our product ensures that even beyond lockdown, clients will get the benefit of car insurance cover that is tailored around their needs and saves them money,” says MiWay CEO, René Otto.

The product gives credence to MiWay’s ongoing efforts to help clients build financial resilience in the current economic climate.  “We know that consumers’ budgets are stretched, and it is important that they still have peace of mind that their cars are protected. MiWheels At Home cover gives them exactly that – great savings and peace of mind,” concludes Otto.  

MiWay believes that the right thing to do is find solutions that not only impact the landscape of the insurance industry, but also enhance the lives of their clients and enable them to enjoy the freedom that comes with working from home.
