Can I insure my car for one month only? And should I do so?

We are guessing you got to your registration renewal day and you didn’t do your insurance shopping yet. Faced with this, you hope you can buy a one-month car insurance so that you can keep driving your car and take a while longer doing your insurance shopping. That does seem ideal, doesn’t it? Perhaps too good to be true even!

The verdict: possible or not?

As you’ve probably guessed by now, one-month insurance isn’t a common option in the UAE, and not offered by most major insurance providers. And even if you can get hold of insurance on this sort-term option, the cost is actually expensive compared to an annual policy as minimum premiums generally apply. So your inefficiency could be ineffective cost-wise too! However, don’t let “last-minute” shopping make you take whatever deal is on the table!

If you’re in a hurry

If you are in a hurry, it only takes minutes to get the best insurance deal for your money through insurance comparison websites. Thankfully we know just the one! You might find our previous blog of interest, click to read: How to find the most competitively-priced car insurance

If you are trying to avoid a big payment

We understand that for most people, insurance is a cost they are dreading to pay, but there are still some options you can aim for to help lighten the burden of a big payment. Most major credit cards in the UAE offer monthly instalment plans for insurance policies, some insurance providers would even coordinate with the bank that issued the credit card to process the application to convert the premium payment to monthly instalments themselves. You wouldn’t have to worry about that!

Or of course, you can be a sensible shopper and just talk to one of our insurance advisors at about our “insure now pay later option” where we manage the setup of an instalment payment plan for you. Simple! Whether you take this option or find our prices so attractive you decide to pay in full, we are delighted to go above and beyond to help you find the best deal. Give us a try today!
