Car insurance is compulsory in India, thus you are required to have it. A car insurance policy protects you and your car from expenses related with damages, accidents, fire, explosion, theft etc. As per Motor Vehicles Act, A motor vehicle in a public place is potentially a dangerous and lethal instrument. Unlike other properties which may be insured or not at the option of the owner, a motor vehicle is required by law to be insured in respect of the user's liability for death, bodily injury or damage to property of third party.This is valid for all kind of vehicles: two wheeler, four wheeler or commercial vehicles
The insured is rewarded with discount on the renewal premium for every claim free year. It usually ranges from 10% to 50%. It will assist you in saving huge money in the premium also. In case if you have collected a nice no claim percentage then it will assist you in a future claim which you will make.
This add on cover helps you, when you got stuck in unwanted situations. These can be emergency transport, daily allowances, assistance in case of a dead battery, taxi benefits, towing facilities, assistance if the fuel in the car runs out, freebies and many more.
This add on helps in case of a complete loss of your car because of any damage caused by an accident.
This add on covers the expenses, if you lose the keys of your car and coverage for the procurement of new locks. Normally the insured will be able to take advantage of this plan once in the whole policy.
Cars in metropolitan cities have to pay higher premiums as the incidence of vehicle thefts and accidents is higher.
For instance, some makes and models fare better in collisions than others so injuries to occupants and damage to the car would be less severe.
This lets the insurance company assess its Insured Declared Value (IDV) that facilitates the underwriter to decide the annual premium for your car.
Additional cushions you may consider such as cover for CNG/LPG kits, key replacement costs, road-side assistance etc. will increase your premium amount.
The insurance premium amount will always be less if you haven't made any claims before.
If you are buying a new car and want to transfer your existing policy - there may be variation in premium rates and change in underwriting criteria for new vehicle.
