How can we get Car Insurance
02 August, 2019
There are two types of Car Insurance policies – Comprehensive Car Insurance and Third-Party Insurance.
Comprehensive Car Insurance
This will protect your car from damages caused by fire or theft, and will also pay out to a third party if you’re involved in an incident. It will also pay out if your car’s damaged in another way such as a bump or crash. For maximum protection, it’s advisable to pair comprehensive coverage with additional add-on insurance covers.
This type of policy covers the damages caused to another party by your car. This is the most basic and mandatory form of motor insurance as per the UAE law. The policy is usually cheaper compared to a comprehensive policy. Third party insurance cover will not pay for any damages to your own car.
Many insurance companies allow you to choose from a range of additional features or add-ons, which eventually determine the final premium for your policy. We’ve gathered an extensive list of these policy add-ons.
