due its better comfort and performance features.

Car insurance policies
Coverage under Car Insurance
There are primarily 3 types of Car Insurance -

1. Third Party Liability Coverage

Third Party car insurance provides cover against any legal liability to a third party
caused when you are at-fault driver. It covers damage/injury caused by you to
another person/property. A Third Party Liability cover is legally mandatory in
India under the Motor Vehicles Act.

2. Collision Coverage
Collision coverage protects the insured financially against damage of their own
car. It pays the insured for damage caused by collision which is usually an accident.
Damage or loss due to theft or vandalism is not included in collision coverage.

3. Comprehensive Coverage
A comprehensive coverage is extensive and includes damage of car, theft of
vehicle, third party legal liability and personal accident cover. The policy coverage
can be further extended by opting for add-ons like accessories cover, engine
protector, zero depreciation cover, medical expenses, etc. This type of coverage is
the most popular as it offers end-to-end coverage and thus less stress for the

No Claim Bonus
For every claim free year, the insured is rewarded with discount on the renewal
premium. This discount is called - No Claim Bonus (NCB). It is cumulative and
increases, every year. It usually ranges from 10% to 50% and can save a substantial
amount of money on the premium payable for your auto insurance. Let's take an
example, if a policyholder doesn't make a claim during the tenure of his auto
insurance policy, he becomes eligible for No Claim Bonus, on the basis of which,
a certain rebate is offered on the payable premium.

Personal Accident Riders

Personal Accident Rider is an optional add-on benefit that can be added to the
comprehensive auto insurance by paying an extra premium. This rider provides the
policyholder with the coverage of medical expenses due to a damage, personal
injury or disability caused due to an accident.
Cover for Car Accessories
By simply opting for separate add-on policy, you can avail the coverage for your
car accessories, which a normal car insurance policy may not cover. Such additions
may increase the premium, but it is always beneficial and cost-effective rather
fitting a new car accessory.

Save Through Paying High Deductibles

A policyholder can save by paying higher deductibles. At the time of filing a claim,
if you choose to pay higher deductibles against your claim, your auto insurance
provider manages to give you some discount on premium later on.

What is not covered in Car Insurance?

Following features are usually not covered in car insurance:

Loss or damage if a policy is not in force.

Gradual wear and tear of car and its parts.
Loss or damage to vehicle when driven by person without a valid driving license.
Loss or damage to vehicle as a result of intoxication due to drugs, alcohol etc.
Loss or damage to engine as a result of oil leakage.
Loss or damage to vehicle as a result of abuse of car manufacturer's guidelines.
