If you have been waiting to renew/buy a car insurance, now is the perfect time!
It’s not too late! If you are living in the UAE and have maintained an accident-free record, you can claim up to 20% discount on your 2023 car insurance premium.
2021 was a great year for consumers with discounts up to 50% being available on car insurance. However, as of 2023, the UAE insurance trends have changed and no such huge discounts are available to the customers. The good news is, you can still turn things around in your favor if you have maintained a clean driving record for a few months.
In addition to this, insurers, of their own accord, can offer a 10% loyalty discount to customers who have been renewing their insurance from the same company for a certain period.
The eligibility criteria for claiming these benefits is that a car owner should have an accident-free record for at least 12 months. There is no restriction based on the driver’s age or experience. However, the discount percentage varies with varied periods.
If one as a car owner in the UAE has maintained a clean record with no accident claim history in the last 12 months, the discount percentage they can claim is 10%.
It will shoot up to 15% for all those who have not filed for accident claims in the past two years. Similarly, to claim the maximum discount possible (20%), one has to have an accident claim-free record for more than three years.
Although this policy seems to be inclined toward public interest and promoting safe driving practices across the UAE, it also acts as a catalyst to foster the losses suffered by the insurance companies during the past year.
One of the main reasons for huge discounts (up to 50%) being offered in 2021-22 was little to no accidental damage claims being made due to COVID. This scheme was pursued by the insurers until September 2022, when the losses accounting from a high number of claims began to surpass the profits made during COVID times.
As a result, to put the wheels of income back in place, some of the leading insurers came together to offer higher premium rates on motor insurance. This put a stop to the steep discounting practices that led to heavy losses on their motor portfolios.
The blemish-free discount claim is an innovative and effective way of promoting safer driving habits and reducing road accidents in the UAE. Moreover, this puts the economic scales of the UAE insurance industry back in balance by stimulating a positive impact on the motor profiles of insurance companies.
