1 Month Car Insurance Kenya – Costs and BenefitsPosted on 2018-11-13 in: Car Insurance in Kenya
Car insurance is a mandatory requirement in Kenya for all motor vehicle owners. It is legal to operate a motor vehicle without the required insurance cover. According to the Kenyan law Cap 405 titled Insurance (Motor Vehicle Third Party Risks), third party car insurance is the minimum required insurance for vehicles to be operated on Kenyan roads. This is to protect motor vehicle owners and operators from the financial responsibility that arises from operating the vehicle to the public. In case of a car accident, they may be liable for third party property damage, body injury and even cause death. This can put the owner of the vehicle in great financial liability up to the tune of over KSh 50 millions causing bankruptcy. This Like most insurance covers, these are available as one year contracts in Kenya. However, many clients may require temporary car insurances for various reasons. Below, we take a look at the details of the covers below:
