Practically SpeakingA Third-party bike insurance policy serves this major purpose - complying with the law of the land.A Comprehensive bike insurance policy helps you take care of your own vehicle’s repair as well as another party’s losses. It contains the mandatory ‘Third-party’ cover. It also comes handy in case of any damage or loss due to reasons other than an accident. For example, dents on your bike because of a tree falling on it, or damages caused by fire are also covered.Thus, a Comprehensive bike insurance policy is more useful than a basic Third-party insurance policy. However, the choice is with you. No matter which policy you choose, make sure to renew it in a timely manner to keep it active.
