2017 kicked off to a great start for UAE vehicle owners! On January 1st 2017, the UAE Insurance Authority implemented exciting new car insurance rules in favor of car owners. If you act now, you can start taking advantage of these new rules.
Even if you already have car insurance, start comparing policies now to make sure that you’re getting the most out of your policy.
Read on to find out how, if you get the right car insurance policy, these new rules can potentially save you money and give you more policy benefits.
Here’s a summary of the new rules and how they’ll affect you:
- More family benefits
Third-party liability insurance will now include your immediate family members, such as your husband, wife, children or even parents. This is a big benefit because you previously had to pay for additional passenger accident benefits to cover family members.
- Lowered excess
The maximum excess, the money you have to pay before your insurance kicks in, has been lowered. This will save you money in the event of an accident. You will have the option, however, to go with a higher excess if you want to lower your monthly premium. Check out our recommended car insurance policies.
- More third-party coverage
Drivers that aren’t at fault will enjoy more benefits. If you’re the innocent party in an accident, you’ll be given a replacement car. Also, if your car’s chassis was damaged in an accident and there’s no replacement for that part, your car will be classified as a total loss instead of being repaired. You would either be given a new vehicle or else you’ll be paid out the market-related value. If you have a UAE car insurance policy, you’ll be eligible for this benefit. Check out your UAE car insurance options.
- Mix and match insurance
Up until now, you could choose either comprehensive car insurance or third-party liability. Thanks to the new rules, you can now get insurance cover for both, even from separate insurers! This will help you get the best auto insurance deal.
