What do I need to do if I am involved in an accident? How do I file a claim?

If you were involved in an accident, first check if anyone involved had suffered any injuries and call an ambulance, if necessary.

The next thing you need to do is call the police and let them know where the accident happened. Do not move your car unless you are blocking the traffic.

The police officers will examine the accident and write up a police report.

Very important: the police report is the most crucial document to assess the amount of insurance payout you will get. Make sure that it includes all damages, including the ones to your personal belongings and any injuries suffered by anyone involved.

To file a claim, you can call us directly on 800-BEEMA (23362) or submit your application via this online form.

You will need to provide the following:

  1. A copy of the police accident report
  2. A copy of your car registration
  3. Your driver’s license

You don’t need to send the original via post, a simple pdf scan or a screenshot will do.

How can I follow up on an open claim?

You can either reach AXA’s claims experts on 800 AXA (292) or via the online tracking service, which you can register for here.

How and when will I be paid?

It depends on the type of damage and its severity.

For car repairs: maximum three days after we’ve received the estimate from the repair shop. The duration of the repairs depends heavily on the extent of the damage. FYI, remember that we offer a replacement car while you wait for yours to be fixed.

For other types of claims, (e.g. injuries or personal belongings): once you’ve sent us the necessary documents, we’ll wire the payment within five days, at most.

The repair shop gave me a replacement car. Am I covered?

If you got a replacement car from the repair shop, it means it was included in your Beema insurance, and you don’t need to pay extra for it.

How long can I keep the replacement car for?

You can keep the replacement car for ten days.

Do I need to pay an excess/deductible?

Yes, there is an amount which will be deducted from your claim payment, also known as deductible or excess. Having to pay a part of the damage yourself might sound unfair at first, but believe us, it’s the best way to get your insurance at a reasonable price.

To make it easier, we decided not to split the deductibles into many different variables depending on the type of damage, amount, and so on (many insurers do that). The amount of your deductible depends only on the value of your car, which you selected when buying your insurance policy:

Car value Excess
0 - 49,999 350 AED
50,000 - 99,999 500 AED
100,000 - 199,999 500 AED
200,000 - 299,999 750 AED
300,000 - 349,999 1,200 AED
350,000 - 999,999 1,400 AED
