You should also do an online search to find all major insurance providers in Abu Dhabi. If you already have other insurance like home or health insurance, then it is recommended to buy car insurance from the same insurance provider to claim a discount.

3-Contact the car insurance companies and get quotes:The best place to get multiple quotes from car insurance companies is where you just have to share your information once, and you will be connected to car insurance companies right away. You’ll need to share details such as the make and model of the car, year of manufacture, and drivers details to get the quote. You should also contact other car insurance companies your friends and family recommend. As a rule of thumb, try to get three car insurance quotes. The rate of car insurance depends on various factors like make and model of the car, year of manufacture, the age of the driver and driving experience.

Once you have finalised the insurance company to go with, you can go ahead with the paperwork. Make sure to understand the way insurance is calculated and carefully read the fine print before finalizing your decision.
