Yep, easy to deal with and apparently the most comprehensive policies available in the UAE, with the highest third party liability as well as many other really useful benefits.

And best of all they are British but have been in the UAE for over 50 years!!

RSA Insurance (They used to be Royal & Sun Alliance)

All their policies are based on UK policies as well, so very similar, they also accept UK No Claims which I thought was really good.

Also another thing I found out is that they are the only Insurer in the UAE to have a fully functional online quote and buy facility.

I can personally highly reccomend them.

RSA are now also the only insurer in the UAE that will give you No Claims Bonus without seeing proof.

You just have to self declare now.

RSA - I salute you.

Yep, can also vouch for them. Have my bike insured with RSA for less than half the premium of my previous insurer...and they give additional benefits!

I never had to show no claims for any of my policies with AXA.

Always struck me as a ludicrous policy...

I think with RSA you still have to fill in the NCB self declaration and would be asked to provide proof in the event of an accident.

It's also only available to people who's home countries have similar schemes.

So mainly european/western expats.

Bloody good idea if you ask me.

lol how's that racist? everyone has target market, men's insurance in the UK is more expensive, is that sexist? No it's all a question of risk, and as we all know european/western drivers are better trained than most other nations, therefore a lower risk.

Plus who's plugging, as a happy customer I am just sharing my experience.

Better trained, maybe...Show me the ratio of insured Lebos vs their accidents and insured westerners vs their accidents...
Me, I'm a profit making customer as far as they're concerned...
In your case, i think your bonus might be in trouble, so you told them that you'll plug them in and they promised you a discount...

How would I know ratios like that mate? Are you a Lebo or something?

Of course your a profit making customer as they are a business, but all I was saying is they provided a good service and have good policies, that's it. I mean most things out here aren't worth the paper they are written on, at least I have Peace of mind now.

My bonus is in no trouble whatsoever, I actually provided the proof of my 5 years claim free driving, so I'm not sure what your really getting at?
