Collision with Government Property Damage: Understanding your invoice and payment options


3.2 min read

Why are we charging you Own Damage Repair?

Own Damage (S1) refers to damages sustained to the vehicle. This is per our Terms and Conditions under Schedule 1 — Insurance Excess. Since the repair cost was below the Own Damage (S1) insurance excess, you will only be charged for the actual damages to the vehicle.

The vehicle was sent to our appointed workshop to be assessed, and we were able to negotiate a lower cost as well. As a carsharing service provider, it’s our responsibility to ensure that vehicle repairs at our trusted workshops adhere to industry quality and pricing standards.

Why are we charging you for Third-Party Excess?

We are charging you Third-Party Excess as the incident involved government property (i.e., road dividers, bushes/trees, lampposts, traffic lights, etc). This is per our Terms and Conditions under Schedule 2 — Insurance Excess.

For us to review your Third Party Excess, submit a written confirmation from the relevant authority (i.e., LTA, NEA, TP, etc.) that they will not be claiming against GetGo Technologies Pte. Ltd. Please submit written confirmation within 7 working days from your invoice date. Otherwise, we will close the matter and may hold you liable for Third-Party Excess.

Please note that the relevant authority may file a property damage claim within 6 years from the date of the accident or damage.

If you need more time to get written confirmation from the relevant authority, please contact us via

What is loss of use?

Loss of Use refers to our vehicle’s downtime during the repair process, which means the vehicle will be unavailable for bookings.

According to Clause 4.6 in our Terms and Conditions, The Hirer acknowledges that in the event of an accident, he or she shall become immediately liable for the full amount of fees charged for the period of hire and the period of time which the vehicle cannot be used as a result of the accident (including the full period of time taken for the reporting of the accident and all time taken to process and carry out repairs on the vehicle).

When will I receive an official invoice?

You will receive an official invoice via email from our finance department within 3-5 working days. Please note that your GetGo account will be temporarily suspended until payment has been made.

The amount stated in the invoice is final, and we seek your understanding that we cannot make further reductions. If you wish to appeal, please submit fresh evidence or substantial documentation, as it may be rejected otherwise.
