RideSafe is a joint initiative between NTUC Income and foodpanda to promote road safety. It is foodpanda’s top priority to ensure that our riders and the members of the public will always be safe from harm whenever our orders are delivered.
Your protection journey has already begun!
- While on your PAB, you accidentally hit a person
- While on your bicycle, you accidentally damage a public property
- While on your PAB/bicycle/PMD, you accidentally hit a car and scratch it
The third-party liability insurance DOES NOT cover scenarios such as: (This falls under Personal Accident Insurance)
- While on your bicycle, you accidentally fall and get hurt
- Your PAB accidentally explodes while charging it at home
What should I do when an accident happens?
Stay calm, check if medical assistance is needed for you or the third-party.
Do not promise any compensation to the third-party and leave the investigation to the police. Since you now are covered under our third-party liability insurance, we will have our own investigation and settle the issue for you. Settling of the incident privately will automatically forfeit the third-party liability insurance under foodpanda.
Go to Rider Support and fill-out the form under Insurance > Third-Party Liability Insurance. For the third-party to claim a valid compensation, they must file a case and send you a Letter of Demand/legal notice. Without this, they are not legally allowed to claim any damages from you.
Upon submission of your complete documents, foodpanda will contact you for a follow-up regarding the next steps.
