Before going into the FAQ, let me give you a brief explanation of TOKIO OMOTENASHI POLICY. Please make sure to check the “Explanation of Important Matters” on the application screen before applying for a policy.
First of all, to briefly explain the most commonly purchased auto insurance in the world, it is “insurance that covers the medical expenses of the other party, yourself and your passengers, or the repair costs of your car in the event of an accident while driving a car “. > For more details, click here. <
Since auto accidents often involve the other party, the coverage is wide-ranging because you will need to pay not only for yourself and your passengers, but also for medical treatment and car repairs to the other party.
