Dubai, March 4, 2015: 86% of UAE residents do not have content insurance of which 67% would still not consider taking cover even in the light of the recent Torch Tower Blaze reveals the latest survey from Souqalmal.com . Of those who do not have insurance, 45% did not see contents insurance as a priority while 34% said they were not sure how to obtain it.

“When we conducted a similar survey in 2012, following the Tamweel Tower fire, we were able to identify a significant gap in people’s awareness about the importance of home contents insurance,” says Souqalmal.com CEO, Ambareen Musa “The results of today’s survey confirm that this gap has not shrunk even after multiple incidents – like the recent Torch Tower fire which left 101 apartments inaccessible to this day due to the extent of fire damage. Very little has changed in attitude towards protecting home contents” she adds.
