Car insurance is a legally mandatory requirement in the UAE. What a car insurance policy cover depends primarily on the type of policy chosen. However, the car insurance policies we offer entail the following:
The type of car insurance policy chosen will determine the extent of the coverage and whether expenses are covered for either party or one. For instance, a Third Party Car insurance would cover medical expenses and injuries of both parties, however, property damages are limited to the “Third Party” or other vehicles involved in the accident. Comprehensive Car insurance on the other hand covers property damages to both vehicles in the event of an accident.
Comprehensive Car Insurance is complete coverage for both you and the other parties involved in the event of a car accident or loss caused by you or the other person, or due to external causes such as a fire, theft, vandalism, damage by fallen objects, collapse, etc. On the contrary, a Third-party Car Insurance coverage primarily involves insuring against the losses caused to the other party involved in the accident. It is the minimum required to cover in UAE and does not provide coverage for you, your vehicle, and expenses. It has limited coverage, but it is more affordable.

A car insurance premium is an amount that you as a car owner can pay, monthly, bi-annually, or annually, in return for the insurance coverage needed. It should be noted that your car insurance premium depends on the factors below:
The value of your car is an important determinant of the premium for your car insurance. As per rules and guidelines in the UAE, if the value of your car or vehicle is more than AED300,000 the applicable rate is up to 2.75%, and for cars valued less than AED 100,000, the rate applied may amount to at least 3.25%, regardless of which company you may choose.
The type and features of your car play a huge role in how your car insurance premium is calculated. For instance, the more rare, expensive, and uncommon your car type, model, and features are, the higher the car insurance premium will be.
If your vehicle is old, it will most likely need more repairs and protection. Thus, car insurance for it will be more expensive because higher coverage equals a higher premium.
Your age, driving history, and experience also impact the car insurance premium. If you are under 25 years of age and your driving experience is under a year, your car insurance premium is likely to be higher.
Whether you choose for your car or vehicle to be repaired by the official car dealer or externally in a garage would affect your car insurance cost.
