Refurbishment Standards

Will the vehicle have brand-new tires?

We replace the tyre if they do not meet the RTA approved passing standard. Spare tyres do not have the age limit of five years provided they are road-worthy as per RTA standards.

If a car has been repainted, does it mean it was involved in an accident?

Not necessarily. As part of refurbishment, we undertake smart repainting to rectify scratches or dents of sizes exceeding our permissible standards to return the panel to its best condition.

Are the cars repainted before they go on sale?

After inspecting a car on 150+ parameters, depending on what is needed, we do whatever it takes to return it to its best condition! As a result, some of the body panels will undergo smart repainting.

Does every car come with brand-new brake pads and discs?

All cars are inspected on 150+ parameters, during which we check the brake pads and discs. The same will be replaced if the thickness is below the vehicle manufacturer's guidelines.

Currently, there is no common online source to establish accident history nationally covering all emirates. We are unable to provide you with this information. We ensure that we do not buy any cars which have met with structural damage, and as part of our refurbishment, we re-inspect the vehicle thoroughly to ensure it is free from structural damage.

What do you mean by "No structural damage / 100% cars pass the RTA test"?

Structural damage refers to any damage to vehicle structural members such as, but not limited to chassis, body pillar frames, rear body member, rear body floor panel etc. Components such as front or rear bumper support / radiator cross member / fender apron panel are not considered as structural members and we confirm as part of our inspection process that damage to these components and consequent repairs have not impacted the structural integrity of the vehicle.

Is my vehicle fully serviced?

All our vehicles go through an inspection and the required periodic maintenance service is carried out. Service history is shared if provided by the previous owner with supporting evidence.

What is motor insurance?

Motor insurance is a type of insurance that covers motors such as cars, trucks, etc. but in this case, specifically cars. Motor insurance typically covers the cost of damages or losses that are caused by accidents, theft, or other covered events.

Do I need to buy insurance for my car?

Before you hit the road on your newly purchased car, it is mandatory to have a car insurance cover as per the UAE RTA law. But don’t worry, we have you covered. We will ensure that you have access to a variety of good quality, reputed and affordable insurance plans at discounted rates, and we will handle all the paperwork to get the policy issued for you by the date of delivery.

Why should I get insurance for my car?

Valid insurance is a prerequisite for driving your vehicle in UAE. Apart from this, having valid insurance does shield you against any unforeseen losses or damages to the car caused by accidents, thefts or other covered events.

How do I choose the right motor insurance policy?

There are several factors to consider when choosing a motor insurance policy, including

  • The type of coverage you need: Different insurance policies offer different types of coverage, so it's important to choose a policy that meets your needs.
  • The cost of the coverage: Insurance policies can vary in price, so it's important to compare different policies to find the one that offers the best value for money.

What kind of insurance policies can I purchase?

We have tied up with reputed insurance aggregators to get you a variety of plans at discounted prices. We have tried to ensure that we give you multiple options depending upon the car, your choice of the payment mode and your price range preference. You can choose from takaful / conventional plans, agency repair / non-agency repairs, comprehensive / third party covers.

What is the difference between a takaful policy and a conventional insurance policy?

Takaful, also called Islamic insurance, is a system of cooperative insurance. Please note that it is not just for Muslims and is open to non-Muslims who prefer to subscribe to and receive Takaful benefits. While the ultimate safeguard provided to the insured person under a takaful insurance is similar to that provided under a conventional insurance, a takaful agreement is Sharia-compliant. You are free to choose a takaful policy for any kind of deal, however if you are availing a loan from an Islamic Bank, then it would be mandatory for you to select takaful.

Why do I not have an option for agency repair in the insurance plans available for my car?

Insurance covers with agency repairs are only available for cars that are within 2 years of their manufacturing date.

Does my preferred payment method affect the options available for insurance plans?

It sure does! A third party cover can be opted for only if you have selected Full payment as your payment method. In case you change your payment mode to Financing, you will accordingly need to change the insurance plan to a comprehensive plan. Similarly, if you are availing financing from a Islamic bank, you must choose a takaful plan.

Can I change my insurance plan that I initially selected at a later stage?

You will be able to change the insurance plan that you selected only until the required documents have been verified. As soon as the documents are verified, your selected insurance plan becomes a part of the loan application (in financing cases) and the insurer starts processing your selection so that your car is insured by the time it is delivered (in full payment cases), and hence it will not be possible to change the plan post this stage. Please ensure to go through all the details of the available plans as soon as you pay the token, and discuss them with your Relationship Manager to make an informed decision.

When do I need to pay for the insurance policy?

You will be asked to make the payment for your chosen insurance policy to the insurance broker directly via a separate payment link at the same time when making the (full or down) payment of the car to CARS24. Please note that if you are getting a loan for your car, you will have the option to finance your insurance plan as well. However, you will still need to make a payment to the insurance broker on a separate payment link. The insurance amount will get deducted from the down payment amount. Once successfully paid for, you will receive an invoice from the insurance provider.

How do I make a claim on my motor insurance policy?

To make a claim on your motor insurance policy, you will need to follow the procedures outlined in your policy. This may involve contacting the insurance company to report the claim and providing them with any necessary documentation, such as a police report or repair estimates.

Will I get a refund if I get the insurance cancelled if I return the car within the 7 days return window?

Should you wish to return your car within the 7 day return period, we will assist you to cancel the insurance policy on the car. We will help enable the refund of the policy amount paid to the insurance provider upon purchase. Please note that there could be cancellation charges levied by the insurance provider as per UAE laws which will be mentioned during policy issuance.

The day you receive the delivery of the car is when the actual time-period starts. The first service will be due at 6 months or 10,000 km (whichever comes earlier), from the delivery date.

What is the difference between a standalone service and a service contract?

We have two types of service offerings for Cars24 customers:

  • Standalone Services: These are services that are one-time in nature and make sense for you if you are looking for individual servicing at the 10,000 KM mark (or 6 months mark whichever is earlier) or 20,000 KM mark (or 12 months mark whichever is earlier)
  • Service Contracts: These are annualized contracts of varied coverage (in terms of KM and years), which basically outsources your car maintenance to us so that you can relax and let us take care of your car. We charge a fixed fee for a certain duration and cover all your servicing.

Why are service contracts better than standalone services?

A service contract should make more sense for you if you want to:

  • Be Economical: Service Contracts are locked-in for a longer duration at a fixed price, unlike standalone services, whose prices can change over the course of a year, etc. basis market scenarios, etc.
  • Keep your warranty intact: When you buy a car, it is covered under warranty and failure to do timely servicing means your warranty will go void, however, if you were to buy a Service Contract from us, we will ensure that you don't (a) miss out on timely service, and (b) in case you do miss out, we still got you covered.

Why should you buy a Service Contract?

A service contract is needed for multiple reasons, a few of which are:

  • To ensure your warranty is valid ~ To ensure that the vehicle warranty is valid, customers must carry out timely servicing, as suggested by the warranty underwriter/seller
  • To keep your car in top-notch condition ~ Timely servicing ensures that the car you love is always in the best condition
  • To ensure car value doesn't depreciate quicker ~ Doing servicing is a signal to any prospective buyer of your car that you have taken good care of the car, so that in the future, when (and, if) you decide to sell the car, be assured of fetching a better price.


What is ILOE insurance?

ILOE insurance, also known as involuntary unemployment insurance, is a type of insurance policy that provides financial protection to individuals who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own.

Who is eligible for ILOE insurance?

Eligibility for ILOE insurance typically depends on the specific policy and the terms of coverage. Some policies may be available to anyone who is employed, while others may have more specific eligibility requirements, such as requiring a certain length of employment or a certain type of job.

How does ILOE insurance work?

ILOE insurance works by providing a benefit to individuals who have lost their jobs involuntarily. The amount of the benefit and the length of time it is paid will depend on the specific policy and the terms of coverage.

Are there any exclusions or limitations to ILOE insurance?

Yes, there may be exclusions or limitations to ILOE insurance coverage. You may read more about this by downloading the policy document.

Is there a cool-off period for claims?

Involuntary Loss of Employment Insurance is subject to a deferral of coverage period of 180 days accounted only once from the Commencement Date. A claim is automatically turned down if redundancy or dismissal is notified to the insured within these 180 days.

How many claims per policy are covered under this?

The total claim under ILOE cannot exceed 6 EMIs or 6 monthly payouts. For example, if the purchase is for 24 months of ILOE, and after 180 days of employment, the individual is out of employment and remains unemployed for 2 months before finding another employment, in this case, ILOE will cover for the 2 months of EMI and 4 months will be the balance left for the remainder of the duration. Now, before raising a second claim on this policy, there must be continuous employment for 180 days before another claim on the balance of 4 months of EMI/payout is raised.

Can I cancel the policy post-purchase?

You may cancel this policy within 15 days of receiving this policy and schedule by contacting us. A full refund will be credited, provided no claim has been made. After 15 days no premium credit will be made. The date of receipt of this policy and schedule will be considered as being two days after the date of issue unless evidence to the contrary can be supplied.

What’s the maximum coverage under this?

ILOE provides protection for the insured by covering up to six instalments due under your finance agreement, up to a maximum of 3,333 AED per month, in the event of involuntary loss of employment. As such the maximum sum insured is 20000 AED (6 x 3,333 AED)

GAP (Guaranteed Asset Protection)

What is GAP insurance?

GAP insurance is a type of insurance policy that covers the difference between the amount you owe on a financed vehicle and the vehicle's actual cash value in the event of a total loss.

Who is eligible for GAP insurance?

GAP insurance is generally available to anyone who has financed a new or used vehicle. However, it may not be available in all states and is not typically offered for vehicles that are more than a few years old.

How does GAP insurance work?

If you are involved in a serious accident or your vehicle is stolen and is deemed a total loss, your traditional car insurance policy will pay out the actual cash value of the vehicle at the time of the loss. However, if the amount you owe on the vehicle is more than the actual cash value, GAP insurance will cover the difference.

How many types of GAP insurance products are there? And, what’s the difference between both?

GAP RTI - Return to invoice gap insurance, also known as return to value gap insurance, is a type of gap insurance that covers the difference between the amount you owe on your vehicle and the amount that you paid for the vehicle originally. With a return to invoice gap insurance, if your car is totalled in an accident and your car insurance policy pays out the current market value of the car, the gap insurance will cover the difference between that amount and the original price you paid for the car. This can be especially useful if you financed the purchase of your car and still owe a significant amount on the loan, as the market value of the car may be less than the amount you still owe. Return to invoice gap insurance can be a good option for people who want additional protection in the event of a total loss and who want to ensure that they are able to replace their car with a similar model.

GAP FS - In the context of car insurance, a GAP (guaranteed asset protection) financial shortfall refers to the difference between the amount you owe on your vehicle and the amount that your car insurance policy will pay in the event of a total loss. For example, if you have a car loan or lease and you get into an accident that totals your car, your car insurance policy will pay out the current market value of the car at the time of the accident. However, if the market value of the car is less than the amount you still owe on your car loan or lease, you will be left with a "gap" or "deficiency" that you will still need to pay. This deficiency is sometimes referred to as a GAP financial shortfall. GAP insurance is a type of coverage that helps to cover this financial shortfall in the event of a total loss. It can be a good option for people who have a high amount of negative equity on their car loan, which means that they owe more on the loan than the car is worth.

Are there any exclusions or limitations to GAP insurance?

Yes, there may be exclusions or limitations to ILOE insurance coverage.
