The scope of motor insurance coverage is broad. There are seven crucial points, nonetheless, that you must pay attention to.
- Coverage of natural calamities/terrorist attack
It is a misconception that a motor insurance policy covers only accidents and thefts. But in reality, an automobile insurance policy also pays for damages brought on by events beyond human control.
These occurrences include natural disasters, including floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, terrorist attacks, and transit-related harm.
- Renewal without documentation
Nobody enjoys dealing with the headaches of documentation. Insurance-related paperwork is typically time-consuming and lengthy. In contrast, you can do motor insurance renewal online in this digital age without completing any additional paperwork. It is simple, quick, and requires no paperwork.
- Third-party premium
Third-party premium is also a part of a comprehensive cover. This offers protection from lawsuits that can arise if you unintentionally harm someone or damage their property. Your auto insurance for vehicle policy covers third-party damage. You can submit a claim through the standard claim process. Nowadays, every auto insurance policy includes own-damage* and a third-party premium.
You may be eligible for a concession on the cost of third-party insurance. You would need to guarantee the insurance company that you will prevent third-party claims or reimburse the costs if this unusual circumstance arises.
- Zero depreciation cover
Depreciation is estimated for car insurance at the pace at which the vehicle’s components deteriorate over time. Insurance companies compute depreciation at the rate when resolving a claim. The insured must pay the difference between the market and depreciation values. If you purchase a zero depreciation cover, you can prevent this. You can obtain complete coverage in this situation without worrying about depreciation. *
- Accident shield
No matter how careful you are, unfortunate traffic accidents occur and are tragic and life-changing. Your car is essential, but so are the lives of everyone within the vehicle. By choosing an accident shield, you can get compensation for all the occupants in the event of a fatal accident or total disability. *
- Coverage for engine
An engine might stall for various causes, including damage to the gearbox, oil leaks, or unintentional water infiltration. If you choose engine protector coverage, your insurance provider will pay the costs of repairing your engine. *
- Car accessories coverage
The damage to the car and not its accessories are typically covered during accidents. To receive financial compensation for the loss or damage of the accessories, you may add car accessory coverage to your policy. *
The cost of the premium will go up as a result, which you can calculate using a motor insurance calculator. However, in the long run, it is economical. Your entire cost may stay the same if you have repurchased new accessories. *
