Products

1) Personal Insurance:

Health Insurance

A Health insurance is necessary to have because we all know how often we visit doctors and sometimes require surgery as well as to avoid unnecessary delays due to waiting lists for the public health service. The insurance firms may offer a wide range of plans starting from the basic individual health plan to the corporate health plan which may be tailor made to your company’s and your needs.

Motor Insurance

Anyone who owns a motor vehicle must have a valid motor insurance policy. The minimum cover required by law is Third Party Only which covers liability to third parties i.e. claims made by third parties against you for damage to their property.

Since this cover is very limited and covers no protection for the insured vehicle, one may purchase Third Party Fire & Theft insurance as well as Comprehensive cover. The former offers fire and theft cover to the insured vehicle whereas the latter pays for damage to the insured vehicle irrespective of liability for the accident.

Insurance firms are able to issue certificates and licences instantly and in this way ensure that the renewal of your motor insurance is absolutely hassle free.

Home Insurance

We all know how hard we strive to have a comfortable home. What could be worse than opening your front door to discover a fire has damaged your home.
