Insurance: is a bilateral agreement to cover the expected losses. With this agreement, the insurer shall take the payment in case of risk in the event of a accident, which can be measured by money.

Key Elements of the Insurance Agreement;

1 – Insurer: One of the parties to the insurance contract. It is the person who will pay the insured person the damage they will suffer if a certain risk occurs.

2 – Insured: It is the other party in the insurance contract. It pays the insurer a premium (insurance fee) for the risk it has insured.

3 – Insurance Value: The main subject of insurance. It should be a value that is determined and measurable with money.

4 – Risk: It is one of the most important elements of the insurance contract. The conclusion of the contract is intended to insure the insured's interest against danger. In insurance, the word Danger can be defined as the probability of incidents that may cause harm. When the danger occurs, it's no longer about danger, it's about insurance.

5 – Insurance Fee: The amount to be paid by the insurer in case of danger. The cost of insurance is the highest amount the insurer receives on top of the payment.

6 – Insurance Premium: Insurance fee paid to the insurer by the insurer.
