Imagine yourself driving your own car, enjoying a family getaway, gently humming to the stereo. Awesome isn’t it? Now imagine that again, but this time think of it with a sudden storm surge and flash floods.

Aside from the safety of everyone, of course, what’s the second thing that most likely to come into your mind? Yes! Of course! You will silently calculate how much it will cost you to have your car repaired! Or better yet, I know you’ll also check if you’ve included the acts of nature in your insurance!

Free Car Insurance with Acts of Nature coverage from BPI Auto Loan
Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I know everyone who considers buying a car also thinks of insurance and auto repair every time they see cars floating in the middle of flooded streets. So when I heard about the BPI Family Auto Loan‘s Free One Year Acts of Nature Insurance, I know that this promo will make prospective car buyers heave a sigh of relief.

In an intimate lunch with fellow bloggers in Cafe Havana in Greenbelt, Mr. David G. Sarmiento Jr., SVP and Head of Family Auto Loans Department of BPI, explained that the BPI Free insurance promo wants to give car owners a peace of mind by relieving their clients the added cost of insurance while being protected from different acts of nature such as floods and even earthquakes.

We have always included for FREE the Acts of Nature coverage ever since we started this promo. As a financial partner that helps Filipinos purchase their vehicles, we also free our clients from their fears – fears of disasters and accidents. We want to give them the peace of mind they deserve in knowing that their vehicles are protected from even crippling calamities.” added Mr. David Sarmiento Jr.

With the ever-changing weather and unimaginable storm, having your car insured is advantageous, and having it for free in one year is even better. :)

Last weekend, a video of Christopher Lao with his floating car once again circulated the internet and had been a trending topic even on Twitter. But instead of being an object of ridicule and cyber bullying, he is now back to star in BPI Auto Loan’s Insurance advertisement. The video had been a total hit with over 93,000 Youtube hits as of posting time.

When we talked to Mr. Herbert D. Tuason, VP and Head of Product Marketing, he shared the story behind the video and how they were able to come up with the idea of getting Mr. Lao to star in their ad. He said that they were fully aware that the ad might receive different reactions from netizens but it surely gets their message across. Their tag line “Nature doesn’t inform you” at the end of the video is roughly the reason why it is important to get your car insured.
