Speaking during the unveiling of the cover,  Edward Nambaffu the general manager said the product comes as part of the company’s customer focus and innovations which are some of our major values that drive our mission.

“Providing you with financial security EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. Indeed, our product development team has reviewed our Motor Third Party Liability (MTPL) policy, one of the only two statutory compulsory insurance covers, with a view to how we can improve it and make it more responsive to the needs of motorists in Uganda.”

He added that currently, under Ugandan laws, MTPL provides for a maximum liability limit of Shs1 million per person per accident and/or a maximum of Shs10 million shillings per accident.

This at times does not provide for adequate compensation in cases of accidents where the different glasses are broken or damaged.

It is also a fact that many motorists are not in position to regularly afford comprehensive motor insurance.

“To bridge this gap, especially between Motor Third Party and comprehensive cover, our team has come up with a Windscreen & Door Glass Cover Policy. This policy is not a standalone policy, but rather, is an extension of our existing Motor Third Party and the two shall be bought together.”

The Window Glass Cover policy is now available for purchase at all Britam Insurance offices and at Shell service stations across the country.

Product Details & Scope
The policy covers against damage and or breakage of motor vehicle glass including:
Windscreen, door glass and rear view mirrors
Damage to windscreen where the damage is sufficient to cause your vehicle to fail tests under the traffic act.

Cover includes the additional costs of replacing and or repairing damaged parts necessary to have the damaged/broken glass replaced.

This policy will be purchasable from our points of sale and at all Shell/Vivo stations across the country.

Product Conditions
The cover shall be bought together with the statutory Motor third party as an extension.
Before the cover is issued, an inspection of the vehicle screens and mirrors shall be done by authorized Britam Personnel.

All replacements shall be carried out and or done by Britam authorized service providers.
The cover shall cease upon payment of claim
