Online car platform Carmudi.com.ph and the Automobile Association Philippines (AAP), the country’s biggest and oldest auto club, have signed a partnership that aims to promote safer mobility for brand-new and second-hand car owners.
Last February 20, Carmudi Philippines managing director Abhi Mohan and AAP president Augusto “Gus” Lagman signed a Memorandum of Agreement making AAP the exclusive emergency roadside service provider for every motor vehicle enrolled in AAP’s Corporate Membership Program for Carmudi Philippines.
Under the agreement, vehicles purchased through Carmudi that will be enrolled under the AAP Corporate Membership Program will be entitled to two service interventions or 50-kilometer tow distance (whichever comes first), 24/7 ambulance service, and discounts for car/non-motor insurance and from partner establishments.
For its part, the AAP shall provide benefits such as service interventions, towing, and ERS assistance in Metro Manila, North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), and the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX) up north and Metro Manila Skyway and ground-level expressway from Magallanes to Alabang (SOMCO), and the AlabangCalamba- Sto. Tomas Expressway (ACTEX) down south.
The AAP will also extend its assistance to enrolled vehicles within a 25-kilometer road distance of AAP offices at Alabang, Cebu City, Davao City, Lipa City, and San Fernando, Pampanga.
“Carmudi Philippines is in the business of ensuring the best automotive ownership experience to our customers, right from the research stage until they day they sell their car to upgrade to another. Road Safety has been one of our strong focuses and we have undertaken various measures to educate current and future car owners about road safety.” Mohan added.
Lagman said new partnership shows the trust and confidence the Berlin-based company has for the car club.
“We hope that this partnership would go places. The years of being in the business of extending assistance to its members would speak volumes of the capabilities of AAP. Rest assured that the members that will be under the Corporate Membership Program will be taken care with quality,” Lagman said.
