Buying insurance in the UAE, including Dubai and Abu Dhabi, can be a little tricky owing to the large number of service providers and intermediaries. The solution is to compare insurance prices from a few well known providers and typically choose a global insurer to protect your needs.
With a large international insurer you can be sure that you have support 24 hours a day and your claims will be processed without any hassle. Many of the top insurers run responsive call centres and are well equipped to handle any incident or calamity which may be reported either by phone, email or by going online.
Choose an insurer that gives you flexibility of choosing covers and gives you discounts when purchasing additional policies for you and your family.
