Factors Influencing the Premium of Cholamandalam MS Motor Insurance for Private Cars

Various factors can heavily impact the premium price of your Cholamandalam MS Motor Insurance product. Here are a few key factors that you must keep in mind to understand exactly how your car insurance’s premium price is computed.


Registered Location

When it comes to motor insurance, the region in which you registered your car matters a lot. If you registered your car in a city that is full of traffic and harbours a high-risk environment, you can expect the premium price of your car insurance to be on the higher side.


Age of the Car

The age of your car can determine how high or low the premium price of your car insurance will be. The older the car, the higher the premium price will be. If your car is brand new, there are high chances of you having to pay only the bare minimum price of a basic car insurance plan.


Engine Types

Premium prices can differ when it comes to diesel, petrol, and CNG cars. With a higher IDV, fuel price, and maintenance cost, diesel cars can invite a higher premium cost. Hence, as compared to petrol and CNG, the premium cost of a diesel-based car could be a little high.


Coverage Type

The coverage type that you choose could alter your expected premium price greatly. Should you choose to get a basic third-party car insurance plan, you will find yourself paying a price lesser than that of a comprehensive plan. If you customise your car insurance plan with add-ons, the premium price will increase simultaneously.


Safety Devices

Customising your car isn’t always an expensive affair. If you have customised your car by installing additional safety devices, the premium price would decrease significantly.


Voluntary Deductibles

A voluntary deductible refers to a predetermined amount of money that you choose to contribute to the coverage in the event of a claim. If you offer a certain percentage of voluntary deductibles, you might find yourself liable to pay a smaller premium price.


Cubic Capacity of the Vehicle

The premium price of your motor insurance product can vary depending on the cubic capacity of your car. For example, if your car’s cubic capacity is under 1000 cc, the base premium should start at ₹2,094.


Insured Declared Value

The insured declared value of your vehicle refers to the maximum amount your insurer can offer you after the theft or total loss of your insured vehicle. Hence, the higher the IDV the higher will be the premium price.
