On top of all the hassles of a traffic accident, report an accident can be a time-consuming task, and more annoying than the accident itself. This is especially so since 2008, when all the insurers on Singapore split into 2 groups on where their insured should go for reporting an accident.

Prior to that, insured can go to a centralized reporting centre IDAC for accident reporting. However in 2008, almost half of the 29 insurance companies in Singapore break away from IDAC and decided to go their own way on how & where their insured should go for their reporting. That leads to a lot of confusion among motorists. In 2009, things got worse when General Insurance Association of Singapore (G.I.A.) pass the ruling that all accident must be reported within 24 hours or insured will have their NCD penalized irregardless whose at liability. As such, many motorists run all over Singapore looking for their insurance company’s reporting centre.

We have complied a breakdown list of current (12 Jan 2011) for all the reporting centres of respective insurance companies. As we have constant update from sources, we will update here if there are any changes.
