Car Insurance Policy Online

Car Insurance

A comprehensive car insurance policy, also known as motor package insurance, saves you money when your car is damaged in an accident or natural calamity. It also covers your vehicle against theft and burglary. At times, you may end up hurting others or damaging property in an accident. A car insurance policy covers such third party liabilities as well. If you own a car in India, having third party insurance is a must for you. That’s why it’s crucial to buy and renew your policy on time to stay on the right side of the law and be covered against car damages. At an affordable premium, our reliable car insurance policy protects you against all these risks so that you can drive worry-free.

Apart from comprehensive car insurance, third-party only and own-damage only car insurance policies are also available. You can choose the policy type as per your needs.

Why should you buy a comprehensive car insurance policy?

Here are six benefits that are hard to pass up.

1

Third-party car insurance is mandatory

As per the Motor Vehicles Act of India, it is compulsory for all vehicles running on the road to be insured. As a car owner, you must have third party liability coverage.

2

Saves you from traffic fine

As per the new Motor Vehicle Act 2019, you can get a traffic fine of ₹2000 for driving without car insurance. If you get caught for a second time, the penalty would be ₹4000.

3

Provides personal accident coverage for owner driver

Our car insurance policy provides ₹15 lakh coverage for injuries to the registered owner driver while travelling in the car, or getting in or off the car.

4

Gives easy access to cashless garages

We have a network of 4300+ cashless garages that take care of your car post damage. We pay for the repairs as per the claim and settle the dues directly with the garage.

5

Covers damages to the car

Our car insurance policy covers any damages to your car due to accidents or natural calamities and takes care of the repair costs.

6

Covers your car against theft

In case your car is stolen and cannot be recovered, we pay for your loss.

IDV in Car Insurance

What factors impact Insured’s
Declared Value (IDV)?

IDV plays a key role in determining your car insurance price

In a car insurance policy, the Insured’s Declared Value (IDV) is the fixed value at which we insure your vehicle. We calculate the policy sum insured based on the manufacturer's listed selling price of the vehicle + the listed cost of any accessories. We derive the amount after deducting the depreciation for every year as per the Indian Motor Tariff.

Suppose you have installed any electronic item in the car, which is not included in the manufacturer's listed selling price. In that case, we add the actual value (after depreciation) of the item to the policy sum insured over and above the IDV.

Right Insured Declared Value (IDV)

While you can save on premium by choosing a lower IDV, it will serve you good at the time of claim if you get an IDV close to your car’s market value while buying the policy.

How is car insurance premium calculated?

Your car insurance premium includes three major components:

1

Third-party liability premium – this is stipulated by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI), and it is directly proportional to your car’s cubic capacity.

Cubic capacity Premium with effect from 16th June 2019 (Rs.)
Not exceeding 1000 cc ₹2,072
Exceeding 1000 cc but not exceeding 1500 cc ₹3,221
Exceeding 1500 cc ₹7,890
2

Own damage premium – this is calculated as IDV X [Tariff Rate] – [Discounts] + Add On Covers

3

Personal accident cover premium + Additional covers

Factors that affect these three components and your final car insurance price, include:

  • IDV – IDV is the maximum amount you can claim under your policy. The higher your car’s market value, the higher your IDV and premium will be.
  • Make and model - Higher-end models are insured at a higher price, simply because the cost of repairs/replacement for such vehicle is higher.
  • Fuel type - Repairing petrol-fuelled cars is cheaper than those that run on diesel and CNG. As a result, they are also less expensive to insure.
  • Year of manufacture – Certain new cars may be costly to cover since their spare parts may not be available yet.
  • Location - Since urban areas have denser traffic, there’s a greater probability of accidental damages. Thus your premium may vary depending on your location.
  • Claim history – If you have made no auto insurance claims in the past year, you stand to gain a No Claim Bonus on your premium.
  • Add-ons – A small additional cost will be included in your premium for the add-ons you pick.

No Claim Bonus^ (NCB)

Security measures

If you’ve taken special measures to keep your car from getting stolen, you are eligible for a discount. Typically, you would receive a 2.5% discount for fitting an anti-theft device (approved by ARAI) on your car.
