Claims Procedure:
It is the aim of Takaful to settle genuine claims in a timely manner however, prior to making any claim it is strongly recommended that you read fully and comprehend the small print on your policy. This is because there are important exclusion clauses and extras regarding the risk you are insuring against. This should be made clear to you when you first apply so if not then you should ask questions pertaining to the relevant policy.

Costs & Premiums Policy:
Takaful Gambia Limited has a policy of not attempting to compete in the insurance market by price cutting. This is to ensure that the firm has sufficient funds to meet any genuine claim.
