TDT | Manama
Bahrain Kuwait Insurance Company (GIG Bahrain) announced launching initiatives to support national activities in the battle against COVID-19 and to ease the financial burden during these difficult times, which includes a 15 per cent discount across the board for all medical practitioners.
“Not only that but in recognition for their unparalleled dedication in keeping everyone safe, this would apply to all personal line products: Comprehensive Motor Insurance, Home Insurance, Travel and Domestic Help,” the company statement said, adding that the new initiatives are available for both existing and new customers.
Additionally, from date to end of June 2020, all new individual customers who will purchase Comprehensive Motor Insurance with GIG Bahrain will enjoy the waiver of premiums for the 3 months up to June 2020, and will only pay for the remaining period, GIG Bahrain said.
As required by law, policies will still be issued for 12 months. “We are pleased to advise that all new customers will immediately benefit from the special offer.”
The existing customers, the company said, would not only be awarded a special discount on their Comprehensive Motor Insurance renewal premiums but will also be eligible for a VIP cover to their policies, at no additional cost.
“The VIP cover would provide excellent benefits, especially during the times social distancing is a must, whereas leaving home would not be necessary. Instead, the VIP cover would provide a pick- up and delivery of the insured vehicle for either routine maintenance or the annual traffic registration twice a year.
If the vehicle were scheduled for routine maintenance, an additional benefit of a rental would be available for up to 3 days at no additional cost.” The VIP cover also includes Taxi services twice a year to any destination within Bahrain as well as emergency home assistance up to two times a year.
Bahrain Kuwait Insurance Company said it has worked closely with its partners to launch a unique and affordable Personal Accident product called “DAMAN” which covers death and disability due to accident, including death due to COVID-19.
