- Decide which type of car insurance you need:
- Comprehensive Insurance: This type of insurance covers you and the other car in case of an accident. Because of the wider coverage, this insurance generally tends to be costly. This insurance covers not only the vehicle against accidents, theft, fire and malicious acts but also personal accidents, in the event that the driver or passengers are injured in a collision and need medical treatment.
- Third-party liability insurance: This insurance covers only the other car and passengers in case of an accident. Thus, if you opt for third-party insurance cover, the insurance premium will cost much less but you will have to pay for the damage to your own car in case of an accident. If a car has been purchased using a loan, most banks in the UAE will not allow you to buy third party liability insurance and will require the owner to purchase comprehensive insurance.
- Choosing Additional Benefits:
