These include access to roadside assistance and the ability to deal with any licensed shop. Additionally, by offering trip interruption coverage, drivers can avoid paying for potentially costly delays.

Little care for car-free day

While many countries around the globe are planning to celebrate World Car Free Day today by promoting low- and zero-carbon footprint travel, the day looks set to pass with little, if any, attention from the public in most parts of Thailand.

It is particularly quiet in Bangkok this year, where civic groups used to join hands with City Hall to organise colourful events to mark the special day, which is aimed at increasing public awareness of the importance of reducing one’s carbon footprint, even if just for a day. In the past, the activities typically included a bicycle ride through the city’s Old Town quarters, passing through the capital’s historic landmarks.

The MRTA is among the few government agencies observing the event this year. The city’s rapid transit operation is offering commuters with folding bike free trips across its rail network, as other observers from the private sector are encouraging
