Before applying for the two wheeler insurance for your motorbike, scooty or scooter it is necessary to know the basic terminology of insurance.
Premium paid for insurance is dependent on various factors like city of registration, model, age of vehicle, year of make, etc. Premium is decided and regulated by IRDA hence there is not much variation across various companies.
Coverage is the financial protection provided to the insured against damage or loss due to natural or man-made calamity along with third party liability. Coverage differs widely from policy to policy.
Exclusion informs us about the situations wherein the insured is not entitled to file a claim. Conditions which fall in the category of exclusions are wear and tear, damage due to drunken driving, accident of/by a person driving without license, damage caused by war or nuclear explosions, etc.
When covered under an insurance plan, the insured is entitled to get the claim for the damage. In case of very small claims, it is advised not to claim as this cancels your chance to avail NCB (No Claim Bonus). NCB provides a good discount on premium and can be transferred from one insurer to the other.
There are a set of documents required for making claim like vehicle registration copy, photocopy of insurance and FIR.
It s advised to read all the terms and conditions in detail before buying an insurance policy. Choose your policy wisely making sure it suits your needs the best.
