In India, owning a two-wheeler comes with the mandatory requirement of at least third-party Bike Insurance. This covers injuries or damage caused to a third-party, their vehicle, or property in case of an accident involving your TVS. While it provides basic protection, it doesn't cover damage to your beloved bike.

 

For comprehensive protection, opt for a Comprehensive Bike Insurance Plan. This covers:

  • Third-party liabilities: Similar to the mandatory plan.

  • Own damage insurance: Covers repairs or replacement of your TVS bike in case of accidents, theft, fire, natural disasters, and more.

  • Personal accident cover: Offers financial protection for you and your co-rider in case of injuries or accidental death.

Add-On Covers for Your TVS Two-wheeler Insurance

  • Zero Depreciation Cover: When you buy a zero depreciation cover for your TVS bike insurance, the company will not consider the depreciation of the two-wheeler parts during claim settlement. The policy will thus facilitate comprehensive coverage for the full insured value of the bike without focusing on depreciation. When you make a claim, this helps to minimise the costs incurred by you.

  • Roadside Assistance Cover: A sudden breakdown of your two-wheeler can leave you stranded without help. Roadside assistance cover with your TVS insurance policy allows easy access to services such as tyre changes, towing, duplicate key making, and fuel delivery.

  • Personal Accident Cover: Some experts regard personal accident cover as the most important add-on. It covers the costs of treatment if you incur injuries in an accident on your insured bike.

  • Return to Invoice Cover: Some mishaps can lead to a total loss of your two-wheeler. A return to invoice cover is helpful in such cases. It allows you to get compensated according to the purchase invoice of your bike.

What’s Covered Under Bike Insurance?

  • Coverage against theft

  • Loss or damage to the two-wheeler caused by explosion, self-ignition, and natural and man-made calamities

  • Damages to the insured vehicle stemming from accidents or malfunctions

  • A specified amount is provided to the nominee in the event of the policyholder’s demise or is given to the policyholder if they suffer permanent total disability due to an accident

Tips to Reduce Your Two-wheeler Insurance Premium

1. Ride Responsibly:

  • Maintain a clean driving record: Avoiding accidents and traffic violations is the key to earning discounts from insurers. Remember, safety first!

  • Opt for defensive driving courses: Enhance your skills and demonstrate your commitment to safety, potentially securing lower premiums.

2. Optimise Your Coverage:

  • Choose the right coverage level: Assess your needs and budget. Comprehensive coverage offers peace of mind but might not be necessary for everyone.

  • Adjust deductibles: Increasing your deductible (the amount you pay before insurance kicks in) can lower your premium. Weigh the potential savings against the risk of higher out-of-pocket costs.

  • Review add-ons: Carefully evaluate optional benefits like roadside assistance or zero depreciation. Only keep what you truly need.

3. Explore Smart Options:

  • Compare quotes: Don't settle for the first offer! Research options from various reputable insurers and online aggregators to find the best deal.

  • Consider online platforms: Many insurers offer competitive rates and convenient purchase options online.

  • Anti-theft devices: Installing approved security gadgets can attract discounts from some insurers.

4. Loyalty Pays:

  • Stick with your insurer: Long-term relationships with a single insurer often earn you loyalty discounts. Consider the trade-off before switching providers.

  • Bundle your policies: Combining your two-wheeler insurance with other policies like home or car insurance with the same provider can lead to bundled discounts.

5. Remember:

  • Never compromise on essential coverage: Prioritise adequate protection over mere cost savings.

  • Read the fine print: Understand the terms and conditions of your policy before making any decisions.

  • Claim wisely: Avoid unnecessary claims to maintain a clean record and potentially lower future premiums.

 

By following these tips and prioritising safe riding, you can enjoy the open road knowing you've secured both your safety and your wallet.

Third-party vs Comprehensive Insurance

Choosing between comprehensive and third-party bike insurance depends on your individual needs and budget. Here's a breakdown to help you decide:

Comprehensive Bike Insurance:

  • Coverage:

    1. Third-party liabilities: Covers injuries or damage to people and property caused by your bike. This is mandatory in India.

    2. Own damage: Covers repairs or replacement of your bike due to accidents, theft, fire, natural calamities, etc.

    3. Additional benefits: Many policies offer add-ons like personal accident cover, roadside assistance, engine protection, etc.

  • Cost: Higher than third-party insurance due to wider coverage.

  • Suitable for:

    1. New bikes or expensive bikes.

    2. Bikers who value peace of mind and want all-inclusive protection.

    3. Bikers who ride frequently or in high-traffic areas.

Third-Party Bike Insurance:

  • Coverage: Only covers third-party liabilities.

  • Cost: Significantly cheaper than comprehensive insurance.

  • Suitable for:

    1. Old bikes or low-value bikes.

    2. Bikers on a tight budget.

    3. Bikers who ride infrequently or in low-traffic areas.

 

Here are some additional factors to consider:

  • No Claim Bonus (NCB): Comprehensive policies offer NCB for claim-free years, reducing premiums over time.

  • Deductible: Both types of policies may have a deductible, a portion of the claim you pay before the insurance company covers the rest.

  • Claim settlement process: Some insurance companies have a faster and more hassle-free claim settlement process than others.

 

To make an informed decision, compare quotes from different insurance providers for both comprehensive and third-party policies. Consider your riding habits, budget, and the value of your bike before making a choice.
