What are the kind of covers available when it comes to comprehensive car insurance in Dubai?

From 24-hour roadside assistance to coverage for off-road travel, the standard covers and optional benefits offered by the car insurance companies in Dubai vary significantly from insurer to insurer. This is good news for car owners as there is almost always a solution out there for any need or budget.

However, with varying options and benefits, it is often confusing when it comes to finding the best product or insurance provider. This is where your dedicated personal shopper from Alfred抯 Insurance Market will be of great assistance.

You may also rest assured that there would always be the bare minimum covers like third party liability limits and coverage for fire, theft and allied perils as per the Unified Car Insurance policy - the minimum standard across the UAE which is further upgraded as of January 2017.

Other than basic coverage, a comprehensive policy may also include perks like windshield coverage, 24/7 roadside assistance, and even a car rental provided to the policyholder during the repair.

In the case of car loans, most banks in Dubai can only process and approve your loan if you buy a comprehensive coverage at least during the term of the loan.

Although comprehensive car insurance is slightly more expensive when compared to third-party-only (TPL) insurance, it is recommended for residents of the UAE due to the frequency of accidents on the roads.
