We consider the Gamma Lindley distribution (GaL) as the conditional distribution of (X|θ,γ), we focus on the estimation of the Bayesian premium under squared error loss function (symmetric) and linear-exponential (Linex) loss function (asymmetric), using informative priors (the Gamma prior). Because of its difficulty and non-linearity, we use a numerical approximation for computing the Bayesian premium. Finally, a simulation and comparative study with varying sample sizes are given.
