Qatar Insurance Company (QIC) has received the 'Domestic General Insurer of the Year' and 'Auto Insurance Initiative of the Year' in Qatar awards at Insurance Asia Awards 2022.
QIC’s newest recognition reflects the company’s success in leading the change of general insurance in Qatar by introducing innovative products and services that best respond to the needs of customers in Qatar over the past 12 months.
The two accolades also reflect QIC’s excellence in enhancing its digital insurance offerings, namely with the launch of an all-new version of its insurance online portal, qic.online, offering the fastest digital solution to buy and renew insurance policies in Qatar.
Developed with an innovative customer-centric approach, the all-inclusive online portal has allowed customers in Qatar for the first time to buy their car, motorcycle, travel, home contents, boat and yacht, and personal accident policies in just two minutes without any need to scan and submit paperwork or to call or visit a QIC branch.
For motor customers, qic.online offers instant car insurance covers comparison, allowing them to get complete information on policy types, in addition to product recommendation to help them better identify the right insurance covers that suit their driving needs.
The portal also allows drivers to compare policy prices and select their preferred payment plans, including paying their insurance premiums in monthly instalments.
