What does WATANIA Car Takaful offer?
It offers two kinds of Car Takaful to suit your requirements and budget. They are described below:
Comprehensive Car Takaful:
Comprehensive Car Takaful, as the name suggests, offers a complete coverage against any unintentional/accidental damage to your car, its spare parts and accessories. Any liability towards a third party, whether property damage or bodily injury/death, caused due to your driver’s or your negligence is also covered under this policy. All three packages mentioned below cover the insured against third party liabilities.
Other than covering third-party liabilities, the scheme also indemnifies you against any accidental damage or loss to your own vehicle by providing repairs for the many damages mentioned in the policy documents. The repair work can be undertaken at a premium garage or at a dealer’s agency. Under the Comprehensive Agency Repair package, the Insurance Company also provides round-the-clock roadside assistance service, emergency medical expenses, and cover against any malicious act of damage.
Under Comprehensive Premium Garage cover, any accidental loss or damage to your car will be repaired/reimbursed. The repairs will take place at a premium, Watania-nominated garage. A third-party cover will be offered but no other premium service would be on the table.
You can go for an affordable, pocket-friendly option as well. Comprehensive Garage Repair covers you against any legal liability in case of an accidental injury or death of the third-party and accidental damage or loss to a third-party’ property or vehicle. Moreover, this scheme also covers you against any accidental damage or loss to your own vehicle; however, your car is repaired in the multiple skilled workshop without any added benefits.
