 Good-to-Have Insurance Add-ons for Hero Motocorp Bikes

Zero Depreciation Cover:

Irrespective of the model of Hero Motocorp bike you have, depreciation is applicable on all kinds of metal, plastic, and fiber glass parts. In case of repairs / replacement claims, you would have to pay for the depreciation cost. However, with zero depreciation add-on, you can get that covered.

Return to Invoice Cover:

So that if your bike was stolen or completely damaged, the claim settlement amount from the insurance company is not as little as the current market value of your bike. Instead, it is as much as the invoice value of your bike. This is even when in case your bike was two years old, with a 20 percent lower current market value.

A lot of insurance companies offer specific add-on coverage at an addition premium cost. Depending on the model of Hero Motocorp bike you have, do enquire with your insurer about these coverage options. Key replacement, roadside assistance, personal accident cover of passengers could be a few such options.

Questions you might ask about Hero Insurance

How can I renew my Hero Insurance online?

Your Hero Insurance Policy can be renewed online very seamlessly through your insurer’s online portal or your broker’s portal.

  1. If you have already selected an insurance company you can go to the insurer’s portal and renew it online by filling in the details.
  2. All you need to fill are your bike details (like Vehicle Registration Number, Engine/Chasis Number), your previous insurance details and your contact details. Once done, you can then renew the policy online by paying via netbanking, wallet or credit/debit card.
  3. Also, it is not necessary to continue your insurance policy with the same insurance company as the previous year. You can easily purchase insurance policy from a different insurer, as long as you are aware of the benefits and features being offered.

The two wheeler insurance of my Hero Super Splendor bike has already expired. Is vehicle inspection mandatory?

No. Inspection is not mandatory even if the insurance for your bike has already expired. It is sometimes done at the discretion of the insurer but only if the insurance has lapsed for more than 6 months or so.

Is an online insurance policy valid for two-wheelers?

Of course it is valid. You get a valid bike insurance policy by renewing the policy online. All you need to do is fill in your previous policy bike details and get a valid insurance policy emailed to your registered email id. A printout of that would suffice.

Single-year or Mutli-year: what’s better in case of Hero insurance?

Multi-year is always better as you get a better rate and your insurance policy is valid for 2 to 3 years. Thus, there is no renewal headache every year. Also, since you pay upfront, there is a huge discount on the premium.

How do I get no-claim bonus at the time of renewal?

If you have not claimed in the preceding year, then you can avail a No-Claim Bonus at the time of your next renewal. Keep one thing in mind: your bike insurance renewal has to happen before the previous policy expires. At the time of renewal of your Two-Wheeler Insurance Policy, you need to mention your last NCB and whether you have made any claim in the last year or not. You get discount on the own-damage premium as per the NCB grid provided by IRDA.

All vehicle Type NCB Grid% of discount in premium on damage premium
No Claim in the last 1 year20%
No Claim in the last 2 consecutive years25%
No Claim in the last 3 consecutive years35%
No Claim in the last 4 consecutive years45%
No Claim in the last 5 consecutive years50%

How much more do I need to pay for comprehensive two wheeler insurance?

The premium for a simple third party only insurance is fixed by the IRDAI. A comprehensive insurance policy includes own-damage premium too. The own-damage premium varies slightly from one insurance company to another and is dependent on a lot of factors, including your claims history and the age of your bike. The overall premium for comprehensive insurance is marginally higher, but highly recommended if you are looking for complete coverage for your Hero bike.
