Genesis Assist – Fines and Licences Portal
As South Africans, we have a shared experience of standing in queues.Queues for the bank, queues for buying our groceries at month-end, and the ultimate test of patience – the queue at any licensing department.
While everyone would like to avoid time spent in queues with strangers, some things simply can’t be avoided, and the issue of vehicle licence renewal (along with perhaps the odd traffic fine) needs to be handled on a recurring basis.
Surely, there must be an easier way? Well for Genesis Insurance customers, there is.
Join us as we explore the benefits of our innovative Fines and Licences Portal.
SAVING TIME AND ADDING VALUE
At Genesis, people are our first priority, which is why we introduced a range of added-value benefits as part of Genesis Assist.
Our exclusive customer benefit programme offers customers help, advice and assistance as part of their chosen insurance cover, and includes everything from home and office emergency assistance to legal advice and medical assistance, along with access to exciting discounts on a range of products and services from some of the country’s best-loved brands at the Genesis Mall.
Perhaps one of the biggest and best benefits is the Fines and Licences Portal – just another one of the ways we’ve tried to make our customers’ lives simpler by removing some of the admin, hassle and time spent on renewing licences or paying traffic fines.
Our secure online portal gives members a hassle-free way of renewing vehicle licence discs quickly and easily, with no queues and no admin.
And, while paying a fine is never a celebration for your pockets, we aim to make the process as pain free as possible.
