WHAT IS CAR INSURANCE?

Car Insurance is a contract you and your insurer enter into, to protect you from financial damages caused by unforeseeable circumstances like accidents, theft, and even natural calamities. The Government of India has made it mandatory for all car owners to have a third-party car insurance policy. This policy covers the damages caused to life and property of individuals, other than you, affected by an accident your car unfortunately becomes a part of. The other most common form of insurance is Comprehensive Car Insurance. It helps you cover majority of the liabilities you might attract if your car gets damaged in a social unrest, natural calamity, or even gets stolen in a case of theft.

*Comprehensive Car Policy means Package policy, henceforth on the page where ever Comprehensive Car policy is mentioned it means Package policy.

As a car owner, it is important for you to have the right car insurance policy. When searching for car insurance online, make sure you completely understand the nature and terms & conditions of the policy.

Compulsory Personal Accident Cover for Owner Driver In Car Insurance

There have been quite misconceptions around personal accident cover being mandatory. So, let us shed some light on this.

According to the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, car owners and drivers are mandatorily required to have third-party liability insurance as a minimum car insurance policy. Like you know, this covers expenses on 3rd party lives and property damages because of an involvement in an accident.

However, what also needed attention was the losses car owners or drivers incurred because of the accident. From car damages to bodily harms of drivers, the expenses were significantly high for them as well. To decrease the financial burden for car owners and drivers, it was made mandatory for owners to have personal accident cover as well. From January 2019, the Motor Vehicles Act made it compulsory for car owners to include personal accident cover in their policy.

There are two major changes implied -

● A waiver that can be offered to car owners/drivers when they have personal accident cover in their policy with a minimum insured amount of Rs.15lacs

● The vehicle owner/driver having this personal accident cover in their policy for an existing vehicle does not have to buy a fresh insurance policy for a new vehicle Regardless of which car insurance policy you choose, you can include personal accident cover in your policy seamlessly.

Calculate Your Car Insurance Premium

When it comes to buying an insurance policy, a premium plays an extremely crucial role. The insurance premium is dependent on various factors. A car insurance calculator is an online tool that helps to determine the vehicle insurance premium. Knowing the premium amount helps to make an informed decision. With the help of the calculator insurance buying decision makes it easier, simpler, and quicker. 

Steps To Calculate Car Insurance Premium Online

With our quick and simple car insurance premium calculator, you can get car insurance quotes online in seconds. To know your premium amount, just follow the steps below.

Step 1

Head to our car insurance calculator

Step 2

Enter your name & provide additional details like your existing Bajaj Allianz policy and your contact details

Step 3

Provide the registration number of your car or specify it’s a new car if your car is yet to roll out. Specify details of your car’s make, model and variant

Step 4

Mention the geographical location of your car’s registration and specify the date of registration. Mention your pin code

Step 5

Your premium would reach your email address instantly

Let us understand the important factors that help to calculate the insurance premium of the car:

 Insured Declared Value: The present value of the four-wheeler is referred to as the Insured Declared Value (IDV). It is the highest sum for which the policyholder can raise a claim. It simply implies that the higher the value of the car, the higher would be the IDV and likewise. 

Car’s Age Depreciation %
< 6 Months 0
6 Months – 1 Year 5%
1 – 2 Years 10%
2 – 3 Years 15%
3 – 4 Years 25%
4 – 5 Years 35%
5 – 10 Years/td> 40%
> 10 Years 50%

No Claims Bonus: A No Claims Bonus is also known as an NCB. This is offered by your insurance company as a reward for not availing claim for a specific period of time (Minimum 1 year). Depending on your insurer, this duration varies depending on number of consecutive claim free years. This bonus only increases with the increase in the number of years you haven’t claimed any insurance. And this bonus can fetch you discounts on your four wheeler insurance premium, thereby decreasing the price you pay every year.

For instance, if you don’t claim insurance for two consecutive years, you are likely to get a discount of up to 25% on your insurance premium. To get an extensive idea about No Claims Bonus in Car Insurance, check out the table below

Voluntary Excess: Voluntary excess is when you step forward to pay extra for your car insurance to share a portion of your car’s risks. In voluntary excess, you voluntarily pay excess to your car insurance policy so that when you have to make a claim, this amount is deducted by your insurer and the remaining amount of your claim is taken care of by your insurance company. This is otherwise called deductibles in Motor Insurance. For instance, let’s assume you buy car insurance online. When buying you have paid a voluntary excess of ₹ 4500. Now when the value of your claims is ₹. 9000. Your insurance company will bear the half of the value and you the other half. The benefit of availing a voluntary excess is it allows you to get discounts on your car premiums. So, depending on this, your four wheeler insurance premium would be higher or lower. Depending on how much you have paid as an excess voluntarily, you are eligible for a specific discount slab. The table below gives you a holistic view of this

Voluntary Excess Discount
₹ 2,500 20% discount on premium (up to ₹ 750
₹ 5,000 25% discount on premium (up to ₹ 1,500
₹ 7,500 30% discount on premium (up to ₹ 2,000)
₹ 15,000 35% discount on premium (up to ₹ 2,500)

Note: This is not an exhaustive list. Various other factors determine the vehicle insurance premium.

If you have been apprehensive about buying a car insurance online, let us remind you that buying online is one of the simplest and quickest ways to insure your car. To help you get a better idea of how convenient it is. Here are some benefits of buying car insurance online. 

Car Insurance Comparison

Deciding on a car insurance policy is as difficult as deciding on a car. From one showroom to another, you walk around for the best price, offers, specifications, preferred colour, deals and more and finally zero-in on one. Buying four wheeler insurance is similar to this.

You explore multiple options – from the basics to comprehensive car insurance policies with add-ons – you extensively check out plans, calculate premiums, look for discounts and more before deciding on one.

But this complexity in finding a car insurance policy is simplified by the internet as it allows you to compare car insurance policies simultaneously under your preferred parameters and instantly get an idea of which policy makes more sense and affordable. This way, you avoid going from one provider to another in search of savings and benefits.

Though an agent can offer you the details, there could be times they are biased as well. So, a computer-generated quote with no agenda is what you need. This makes buying car insurance online an ideal choice.

Completely Customizable

Like we saw, a four wheeler insurance policy is very subjective and depends on a lot of factors. From generic ones like your car manufacturer and modifications to personal decisions like options for specific add-ons and discounts, you need to tailor your insurance policy.

And buying a car insurance online is the simplest way to get an insurance policy. By simply checking on boxes and features, you can customize your insurance policy, modify add-ons and requirements, generate quotes and checkout to buy your insurance policy online.

Transparent

As far as buying car insurance online is concerned, what you see is what you get. All charges are marked on your quotes and there are no last-minute hidden charges that suddenly pop out of nowhere. You always know how much you would pay and the benefits you get for what you pay before you buy a car insurance. Besides, reading through the terms and conditions are also simple and there are several audio-visual elements to explain complex insurance-related concepts.

Convenience

Imagine you are on your way home in a cab and your car is about to arrive the next day. You immediately pull out your app or a website on your smartphone and get car insurance in a few minutes before you reach home. Buying a car insurance online is as convenient as it gets because regardless of where you are, you can get car insurance almost instantly.

Zero Agents Involved

Like we mentioned, you won’t be subjected to an agent’s bias when buying a car insurance online and regret later. With online facilities, you directly interact with your service provider and every little detail you need to know to buy insurance is provided to you. You can make informed decisions without an agent and walk away with an insurance policy that only works in your favour.

Verify Insurer’s Credibility

One of the best benefits of buying car insurance online is that you can validate your insurer’s credibility. You can explore your insurance provider’s website and review portals to look for their settlements ratio and records and see in detail how they assist their customers when it comes to claims and support. Depending on reviews and records, you can make a wise choice of going ahead with them or checking out more options.

Validity Of Policy

Online policies are as legitimate as traditionally-purchased policies. When you buy car insurance online, your copies are immediately sent to your email address you specify and become valid the moment you make your payment. You can then take a print out of your paper and document them for use. With online insurance, there is no need to feel paranoid at all.

Instantly Receive Policy

Once you make your payment, all you need to do is head to your email inbox. You would see your car insurance policy waiting right there for you. You can check for the details and print them out for use. No hassles. No interruptions. Buying car insurance online is the best.

Zero Paperwork

Imagine protecting your car and your environment from risks. That’s what happens when you buy car insurance online. There is no form-filling involved, no document submission and more. You mention your details, upload documents, and the policy reaches you as a document. End of process.

Car Insurance Claim Procedure

The moment your car insurance is live and valid, you are eligible to make claims when an accident happens. In simple words, a motor insurance claim is when you ask your car insurance company to take charge or compensate for the damages caused due to an accident. Depending on the inclusions and exclusions in your plan, your insurer will back you up financially

As far as third-party insurance is concerned, claims are when you call your insurer to represent you or intervene for settlements to the damages caused because of your accident to a third-party. This may be damages to life or property

There are two types of insurance claims - cashless claims and reimbursement claims. Let’s look at both in detail and their distinct procedures.

Cashless Car Insurance Claims

In a cashless claim, you don’t have to pay for the recovery of any damage to your car out of your pocket. Your insurance provider will pay for the damages directly to your garage or workshop and take care of the entire recovery process as specified and mentioned in your car insurance policy.

Availing cashless insurance claims is easy. Simply follow the steps mentioned below:

  • Call your insurance provider or visit your provider’s website or an app to register your cashless claim.
  • Receive the claims registration number that is sent to you on successful registration.
  • Move your damaged car to an authorized cashless garage shed to initiate the repairs. For cashless garage, you can take your vehicle only to network garages as transactions between your insurance provider and the garage happen directly.
  • Submit the required documents to your surveyor.
  • Once surveyed, your insurance company confirms the liability.

Reimbursement Claims Insurance Policy

In this, you have to shell out money from your wallet to recover the damages to your car. Your insurance company then intervenes and reimburses the expenses you incurred in the process after successful verification of documents and coverages.

Here’s how you can avail reimbursement claims:

  • Call your insurance provider or visit your provider’s website or an app to register your reimbursement claim.
  • Receive the claims registration number which is sent to you on successful registration.
  • Move your damaged car to a garage near you. In this case, it is not mandatory to get your car serviced from a network authorized garage.
  • Submit the required documents to your surveyor.
  • Once surveyed, your insurance company confirms the liability and initiates the reimbursement procedure.

Car Insurance OTS Claims

This is the latest offering that has been made seamless because of tech intervention. OTS stands for On-The-Spot and like the name suggests, this allows you to make spot claims of your insurance.

Yes, with the OTS feature, you can now avail claims of up to ₹ 30,000 on the spot and get the amount transferred for services and recovery in 20 minutes* or less.

How to Reduce the Cost of Your Car Policy?

Now, let us know some of the key ways of reducing car insurance premiums. Yes, you read it right! 

You can reduce the premium amount without compromising insurance coverage. Here are some tips to reduce the vehicle insurance premium:

 Do Not Make Small Claims: By now you would know, that for every free claim year, you earn a No Claim Bonus status and can further enjoy its benefits.  For a claim-free record, you could save money as high as 50% (On basic OD premium) at the time of renewal. So, if you make even the smallest claim, you will not be able to enjoy the NCB benefit.

Opt Voluntary Deductible: You may decrease insurance premium by increasing  the voluntary deductible. It helps to reduce the insurance premium amount. 

Choose the Right Car Insurance Cover: Choosing the cover that is essential for the car. With an array of add-on covers, it is not necessary to include all of them. Rather be mindful and tactful of what coverage you want. 

Install Security Devices: Installing a security device is indeed a smart choice as it not only keeps the car safe but also reduces the risk of your vehicle being stolen. It implies that low risk is equal to low insurance premiums.

What Factors Impact Insured’s Declared Value (IDV)?

Insured Declared Value is important as it offers an estimated market value of the vehicle. It also gives an idea about the amount that the insurance company would offer in case the vehicle incurs a complete loss.

Various factors have an impact on the IDV. Here’s a rundown of the factors that impact the IDV of the car:

· Age of the Car: Yes, the age can easily increase or even decrease the IDV of the car. As the car gets older, the Insured Declared Value does take a dip. It is because of the car parts being depreciated over the years.

· Make and Model of the Car: Over the conventional car, an advanced car offers the higher Insured Declared Value. It is because high-end cars have a better market value and remain in trend too. The overall make of the car impacts the IDV.

bought in a metro city, the IDV for it will be higher compared to the ones bought in Tier-III cities.

ADD ON COVERS

Add-ons are additional features or benefits you add to your car insurance to make it more extensive. The add-on covers you add only decrease any financial burden you are likely to incur at the event of an accident or a calamity. At the same time, the more the add-ons you include in your policy, the higher the premium you have to pay. For the most ideal four wheeler insurance, we recommend you adding features that are value additions to your policy. Let’s look at some of the add-ons we offer.

Zero Depreciation

This is an add-on you could add to your comprehensive car insurance policy. To understand what zero depreciation is, let’s first look at depreciation.

Cars are highly valuable until you purchase. From the time you purchase, your car is subjected to depreciation, which means that it is losing its value in the market as it gets older. Not just the car but the spare parts powering your car as well. That is why older cars have a low pricing in the market than their recently-purchased counterparts.

With the zero depreciation cover add-on, what you are basically doing is nullifying the depreciation associated with your car. This means that your car, technically, does not lose value in the market as the depreciation of your car is not considered by your insurer.

So, when you claim your insurance, you receive full value for your car and all of its spare parts. Bumper to bumper cover incurs the most expensive premium and is worth every penny shelled. We highly recommend this add-on especially if your car is less than 5 years old.

Features

  • Depreciation shield for the car
  • Depreciation shield for the spare parts

Set Renewal Reminder

WHY SHOULD YOU RENEW AN EXPIRED CAR INSURANCE POLICY IMMEDIATELY?

It is absolutely vital that you renew your expired four wheeler insurance as early as possible. Like we saw, the primary reason for this is to avoid legal complications as it is illegal to drive without a valid insurance policy.

Apart from this, there are two major reasons you should renew your car insurance immediately –

To Avail Your No Claims Bonus

When you don’t renew your policy, you will lose out on your no claims bonus you are eligible for. Your bonus accumulates over the years to fetch you good discounts and other benefits. If you don’t renew, they would lapse.

Financial Burden

Without a car insurance policy, you should bear the financial burden that stems out of misfortunes like accidents or damages to your car. You will have to pay from your savings or pocket for the recovery of your car. To prevent financial burden of any sorts, renewing four wheeler insurance is highly recommended.

You can renew car insurance online seamlessly.

  • Loss Due to Man-Made Calamities

    If you happen to be involved in an accident that results in damage to property or loss of life of a third party individual, we help you cover the legal obligations arising from it.

  • Depreciation

    Normal wear and tear and general ageing of the vehicle and consumables like tyres and tubes is not covered. Neither is depreciation or any consequential loss. 

  • Influence of Substances

    We promote safe driving and hence, any damage caused to the vehicle by a person driving it under the influence of substances like liquor or drugs is not covered.

  • Invalid license

    Since getting your wheels on the road without a valid license is illegal, we too do not cover damages caused by a person driving the vehicle without a valid license. 

  • War, Mutiny or Nuclear Risk

    Just like in a zombie apocalypse, the situation during war, mutiny and nuclear risk, is chaotic and uncontrollable and any damage to your car during such events is not covered.
