If you have two wheeler insurance, your vehicle is protected against any natural calamity such as floods, earthquake, cyclone and hurricane among others. The insurance covers any kind of repair cost required for the vehicle damaged in the calamity. Not just this, it also provides coverage for physical injuries that you may have suffered due to the calamity.

Buying third party two wheeler insurance for a vehicle is compulsory and fulfils a legal obligation. Hence, it also protects your vehicle from any third-party liability arising due to damage caused in case of accidents, natural calamities or manmade disasters.

Types of two-wheeler insurance

There are two types of two-wheeler insurance available in the market. The major types include:

1. Liability Only Insurance Policy

It is a mandatory policy, which is governed by the law in India. This is also known as 'Act Only' policy. It is a basic insurance policy, which offers protection against property damage, loss, death or physical injury to a third-party because of an accident, which the insured bike would have caused. 
This insurance also offers financial protection to the owner of the two-wheeler.

Natural events or calamities are disasters caused by nature and out of human control. These include fire, flood, earthquakes, hurricanes, cyclones and hailstorm, among others.
