Insurance company launches car breakdown app
DUBAI // An insurance company has launched a road assistance mobile application for reporting a car breakdown.
The AssistPal app has been launched by Oman Insurance Company to offer its motor insurance customers services such as tyre changes, battery jump starts and roadside recovery.
AssistPal will send the vehicle’s exact location via the phone’s GPS feature.
“Once help is on the way, drivers can track the real-time location of the assigned service provider on the map,” said Haris Mylonas, executive vice president at OIC’s consumer division.
The app’s release follows the signing of a new contract between OIC and the International Travel Assistance Company, which will provide roadside and travel assistance to OIC customers.
