Car Insurance FAQs
A comprehensive insurance policy will cover you against your own loss or damage as well as third party property damage. Loss or damage could result from an accidental collision, fire, burglary, external explosion, self-ignition, lightning, theft and any malicious act by a third party.
Third party liability policy is the basic coverage that is mandatory as per the UAE law and it covers death or bodily injury to any third party/person as well as property damage caused by the insured’s vehicle. The policy does not cover damage/loss to the insured vehicle.
The current car value is calculated by comparing the average market value of the same vehicle. The car value is depreciated by 15% every year thereafter.
Comprehensive coverage can be provided as long as your vehicle is less than 10 years old. After that, the coverage will be underwritten on a case by case basis.
