Cashless claim settlement is a facility provided by the car insurance company in which the insurer is associated with authorised garages, which are referred to as network garages. If you want to repair your insured vehicle, you can take it to a network garage to avail cashless claim facility. You won’t be liable to pay for the vehicle’s repair, the insurer will cover all the expenses on your behalf.

needed you should also contact the police and file an FIR.

A thorough inspection of your vehicle will be carried out at the garage.
✓ The network garage will give an estimate for the repair work which will be approved by the
insurance company. After which, the repair work will commence.
✓ On completion of repair, the garage will provide all the relevant invoices to the insurance
company. Later, the insurer will examine the bills and the vehicle.

How is it better than reimbursement claim settlement?
When you go to repair your insured vehicle in a garage, you are required to pay the whole amount at first. After which you should send all the relevant invoice and documents to the insurer, failure to produce any invoice will result in rejection of your insurance claim.
