Motor Insurance Overview

Motor insurance is a financial cover that protects you and your vehicle in case of accidents, theft, or loss incurred due to man-made and natural calamities, but it should not feel like an upkeep formality that you buy for your vehicle. Although it is mandatory under the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, the policy needs to fulfil all your motor insurance-related requirements.

Just like you try to buy the best vehicle in the market, why not do the same when buying motor insurance? Be it a new or used vehicle, having a motor insurance plan that safeguards your precious possession is a must. Your insurance provider must not only be trustworthy but also need to provide maximum benefits at affordable premiums.

To fulfil your needs for a good motor insurance policy, we at Finserv MARKETS offer comprehensive Bajaj Allianz motor insurance. Here, you can benefit from features like 24x7 roadside assistance, quick claim settlement, cashless facility across 4000+ garages, and more.

Key things to consider when buying motor insurance

  • What is the Claim Settlement Ration of the insurance provider?

    Claim settlement ratio (CSR) indicates how many claims a company has settled against the number of claims received. Higher the CSR, better the efficiency. With one of the highest claim-settlement ratios of 93%, efficient and quick claims handling is a Bajaj Allianz Motor Insurance forte.

  • Does the insurance provider offer No Claim Bonus (NCB)?

    This is an important factor when it comes to calculating your motor insurance premium. NCB is linked to the policyholder and not the vehicle insured nor the insurance provider. If you have not made any claim and decide to renew your policy with a new insurance provider, you should be eligible for NCB. Bajaj Allianz Motor Insurance offers NCB as high as 50% and that why you should go with us!

  • What constitutes a good motor insurance policy?

    Knowing what's covered in your policy and what's excluded will help determine your motor insurance provider. Also, knowing what comes as an 'add-on' is equally important. We offer extensive benefits that includes coverage for damages caused to your vehicle due to natural calamities, man-made disasters and more.

Difference between Third Party and Comprehensive Motor Insurance

A lot of people purchase third party motor insurance because it is mandatory by law. And although the premiums are low for third party insurance, the coverage it offers is limited. As the name suggests, third party motor insurance will only cover third party liabilities. Hence, it is highly advisable to seek comprehensive motor insurance as it provides extensive coverage.

The following table will help you understand the difference between third party motor insurance and comprehensive motor insurance so that you can make an informed decision.

 

Third-Party Motor Insurance

Comprehensive Motor Insurance

What Does It Mean?

It financially covers you against all third party liabilities.

Along with third party liabilities, it also provides extensive coverage to you and your vehicle.

Premiums

Comes with low premiums

Paying premiums that are slighly more than third party insurance will give you comprehensive coverage for your vehicle.

Advantages

It protects you (the policyholder) in case your vehicle damages or injures a third person/property.

Here, the insurer will pay the compensation.

It covers both the damages incurred by your vehicle as well as third party damages.

You can also avail premium discounts with No Claim Bonus (NCB) during policy renewals every year (only if you haven’t made a single claim during the policy term).

How to Calculate Your Motor Insurance Premium? 

The motor insurance premiums are calculated based on three factors –

  1. Age of the vehicle

  2. Vehicle registration city

  3. Your driving history

You can then choose between third party insurance coverage and comprehensive coverage. Third party motor insurance is mandatory by law and has low premiums, but it also offers limited coverage. Therefore, comprehensive motor insurance is your safest bet. You can avail extensive coverage and a host of benefits at a slightly higher premium.

However, there are ways in which you can reduce the premium amounts. Here’s how –

  • Do not make minor claims

  • Install an anti-theft device

  • Buy add-on coverage (bundled package deal)

When it comes to add-on covers, you may think that it will increase your premium amount. But having certain additional coverage is a smart way to utilize your motor insurance.

Pointers to Keep In Mind While Purchasing Motor Insurance

There are certain factors that you need to keep in mind when purchasing motor insurance.

  • No Claim Bonus (NCB): The NCB is one of the most crucial factors when it comes to calculating the motor insurance premiums. It comes handy while renewing your insurance policy. So, if you have not made any claim during the policy term, you are eligible for discounts on premiums under the NCB. The Bajaj Allianz motor insurance at Finserv MARKETS offers NCB as high as 50% based on your last 5 years claim history.

  • Age of The Vehicle: When determining your insurance premiums, your insurance provider will take the age of the vehicle into consideration. The premiums increase as the age of your vehicle increases.

  • Type of Coverage: The motor insurance premiums are also dependent on the type of coverage you choose. Like we mentioned earlier, comprehensive coverage have slightly high premiums compared to third party insurance.

  • Geographical Area: The vehicle registration city will also have an impact on your premium amounts. The insurance premiums you pay are higher in metropolitan cities where roads are busy with traffic.

  • Insured Declared Value (IDV): IDV is the maximum amount your insurer will pay you in compensation during theft or total loss of your vehicle. This value is determined based on the current market value of your vehicle after factoring in depreciation.

  • Zero Depreciation Cover: The zero depreciation cover in motor insurance will leave out the depreciation factor from your coverage, thus providing complete insurance protection to your vehicle. In simple words, the insurer will compensate the full amount of the expenses incurred.

    Indian traffic laws make it mandatory for vehicles to have third-party liability insurance in place. As part of this plan, you are only covered against injuries and damages that you may have caused to others.
