5 types of car insurance coverages

If it's your first time buying car insurance in Thailand, understanding all the different coverage types can be overwhelming. There are 5 types of voluntary car insurance in Thailand, plus the compulsory insurance coverage or “Por Ror Bor”. We do a car insurance comparison, looking at the types and explain the different coverage items in every motor insurance policy.

Compare Car Insurance Types

Type 1 is the most comprehensive motor insurance type, and in order then you have type 2+, type 3+, type 2 and type 3 being the leanest voluntary insurance coverage.

The easiest way to compare these insurance types is to split the coverage in 3 categories:

1. Coverage for damages to your car

This is what most people think when they think of car insurance. This coverage category includes damages caused by collision with another vehicle, damages caused by you or by an unidentifiable third-party, theft, fire or a natural disaster, and damages to your windscreen.

A type 1 comprehensive insurance policy would include all of these coverages to your vehicle, while damages without another party and windscreen damages are excluded from any other type. Your car damages caused by an accident with another vehicle are also covered by type 2+ and type 3+ motor insurance policies, together with the towing service if the road accident is so bad that you cannot drive your car back.

Theft and fire are included by type 1, type 2+ and type 2 insurance coverage, but excluded in the type 3+ and type 3 policies.

Finally, type 1 car insurance covers for all natural disasters, while type 2+ only covers for flood damages. All other types exclude natural disasters, including flood.

2. Damages to others

This is actually the most important insurance coverage, and protects you from the damages you do to others. That includes damages to others people's property, such as a car or house, but also injuries or, in extreme cases, death. Compulsory motor insurance includes bodily injury liability but the coverage is limited. The "Por Ror Bor" insurance does not include coverage for liability for property damages. That means if you crash a Mercedes-Benz, and it's your fault, you will have to cover the steep repair costs of that vehicle.

To further show how important third-party liability coverage is, all motor insurance types include coverage for property damages and bodily injuries. Moreover, Roojai leaves you the choice to increase the bodily injury coverage if you want to feel more protected from any personal liability.

3. Other coverages

These are the additional coverages included in all motor insurance types. The Medical expenses item covers you and the passengers for medical bills and related expenses, including injuries caused by someone without or not enough insurance.

Personal accident coverage protects you for risks to a person's health in the event of bodily injury, disability, or death that results from any minor or major accident only. This excludes any pre-existing conditions, chronic diseases, or illnesses.

Bail bond coverage - covers the bail bond costs (hopefully you will not need it!). The amount is specified in the policy document with a minimum of ฿300,000.
