Our most frequently asked questions
Voluntary car insurance vs. compulsory insurance?
Compulsory insurance is required by Thai law for all vehicles. It covers some basic elements, mainly injuries to occupants of the vehicle (including the driver) as well as injuries to other people caused from the usage of the vehicle. The amount of coverage is very limited.
Voluntary insurance is optional insurance. Depending on coverage types, they may cover damage to the insured vehicle whether the driver is at fault or not, damage to the third party vehicle if the driver of the insured vehicle is at fault, liability for injuries resulting from a car accident where the driver is at fault, and the loss of or damage to the vehicle through theft, fire, or natural disasters.
Why should I have voluntary car insurance?
Accidents can happen at any time and they happen quite often in Thailand. According to the Department of Highways, there were 20,457 major and minor accidents that happened in the past year alone and the average number of collisions per day is around 50-60 times. Even though it is required by law to have compulsory insurance (often called Por Ror Bor), the coverage is quite limited. Voluntary insurance can offer additional coverage for third party property damage or damage to the insured car, and even theft and fire damage. By purchasing car insurance in Thailand, it can give you a peace of mind knowing that if anything were to happen, you would have enough funds to cover the expense and more.
