The Pricing Structure Of A Bike Insurance Policy

Understanding The Pricing Structure Of A Bike Insurance Policy

If you own a two-wheeler, you are probably aware of the fact that buying two-wheeler insurance in India is a requirement. It is important to note that the requirement is only for a third-party liability cover for your bike or scooter. A third-party liability policy can be purchased separately or as a part of the comprehensive two-wheeler insurance cover. Since a comprehensive policy offers a host of add-ons, while a third-party policy purchased as a standalone plan offers coverage only for third-party damage that you are liable for, the third party two wheeler insurance rates tend to be slightly on the lower side.*## This may lead you to opt for a third-party policy, but that may not offer you maximum coverage, as a comprehensive policy might. To take a deeper look into it, a third-party liability cover is what can be claimed when you are required to pay damages to a third party, be it to their vehicle, their person, or their property.^ However, it is quite possible that your bike or you also sustain damage in the event of a mishap. If you don’t have an Own Damage cover that is offered with a comprehensive policy, you may have to pay for the damage you sustain out of your pocket.^ ^Claims are subject to terms and conditions set forth under motor insurance policy.

Some of the common benefits of buying a comprehensive bike plan:

  1. Financial protection if you were to face an accident or bike theft (partial or full)
  2. Peace of mind knowing that you are covered
  3. Reduced stress in the event of an accident or theft
  4. Access to a network of repair shops and garages
Hence, you should consider a comprehensive cover to ensure that you and your bike have the financial protection you need, so that any mishap you may have to face concerning your two-wheeler does not set you back financially.* Moreover, if you use a two wheeler insurance premium calculator, you may find that there is some difference between the premiums of a third-party liability cover and a comprehensive cover. Various factors affect the price structure of your premium, one of them being the number of add-ons that you choose. However, it might often be the case the benefits offered by the policy structure outweigh the premium cost. Whether you buy bike insurance online or offline may also influence the cost.## To take the right policy decisions as a policyholder and as a two-wheeler owner, it is important to understand the pricing structure of your bike insurance policy.  

Components of Premium Costs of Bike Insurance

The premium for your bike insurance policy will be determined by a number of factors. Some of the common ones that you may want to take note of are:
  1. Bike’s make and model
  2. The age of your bike
  3. The engine capacity of your bike
  4. The add-ons you choose
  5. Your driving history
  6. The coverage that you choose
  7. The insurance company that you choose
  8. Mode of purchase of bike insurance - online or offline
  9. Claims made thus far in the previous year
These factors may not affect your insurance premium rates equally. Thus, it is best to get real-time quotes using a bike insurance premium calculator.*##  

How to Keep Your Bike Insurance Costs Down

Most policy buyers may want to bring down their policy prices as well as they could. To be able to do this, you ought to take note of the factors that affect your policy premiums, so you may know how to bring the cost down.*## Here are a few factors that may help you reduce your bike insurance costs.

  2. Older bikes may get more expensive to insure. The add-on coverage options available may also be limited. Hence, choose a new bike.
