Pakistani drivers in UAE have been declared as the ‘best drivers’ with just 2.5 percent of the customers have made an insurance claim in the past year, according to the data by customer nationality.
Pakistani drivers were stated to have been involved in the least number of accidents in the UAE in 2020, according to the findings of Yallacompare’s insurance comparison platform.
Moreover, the second place was taken by Lebanese, with 3.2% of customers made claims last year. The third, fourth, and fifth places were taken by Filipinos, Syrians, and Jordanians, respectively.
Meanwhile, local Emiratis have the most claims, with 5.5% of customers claiming in the past year.
Jonathan Rawling, CFO, Yallacompare said, “It is interesting to discover that according to our user-declared data, Pakistanis were the best drivers in the UAE in 2020, from the point of view (POV) of making insurance claims.”
Apart from that, the data shows that only 3.8% of Yallacompare customers declared that they claimed on their car insurance in the year 2020 compared to 8% in 2019
The decline in the number of claims can be due to the fewer people drove last year due to the lockdown imposed amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“While it would be a fantastic news to suggest the lower claim figure is down to a remarkable surge in safer driving, the lower number of claims is more likely to be due to lower car usage and less travel due to the lockdown, curfews imposed, and working from home,” Rawling explained.
