6 Factors that affect your car insurance cost

Acko Car Insurance Policy

FACTOR # 1

Value of your Car

Insured Declared Value (IDV)

Your insurance premium depends on a market value for your car set by the insurer. It’s called the Insured Declared Value or IDV. This IDV changes as your car ages due to depreciation as parts of your car get depreciated due to wear & tear with time.

IDV Affects Your Premium Amount Directly

The higher the IDV, the higher is your premium. You can opt for a lower IDV, but doing so may result in a lower claim amount for your policy. If the damages incurred to your car are more than the IDV, that you declared, you may have to pay the difference from your pocket.

FACTOR # 2

Type of Car Insurance

Not every four-wheeler insurance policy offers the same coverage. It depends on the type of car insurance policy you buy. There are two main kinds of car insurance policies in India:

Third-party Car Insurance

A Third-party Policy is the most basic type of car insurance policy. It covers, the injuries caused to another person and his/her damaged property. This kind of car insurance policy has the lowest premium. Buying a third-party car insurance policy is mandatory by Indian law.

Comprehensive Car Insurance

This policy covers all kinds of damages — to your car, another person’s property, and the insured car’s owner-driver. Cause of damages can include Collision, Theft, Fire, Sabotage, Natural occurrences or Man-made calamities.

Since Comprehensive Car Insurance offers greater coverage than a Third-party Insurance, it costs more.

Your basic Comprehensive Car Insurance premium consists of Cost of Third-party Cover, Cost of Own Damage Cover, and Personal Accident Cover for the owner

FACTOR # 3

Add-on Coverage

You can increase the protection your four-wheeler insurance offers with the help of Add-ons. The more the Add-ons on your auto insurance policy, the higher the car insurance premium.

The 5 most common Add-ons are

  • Zero Depreciation
  • Engine protection
  • NCB protection
  • Invoice Cover

Zero Depreciation or Bumper to Bumper Add-on

Zero Depreciation or Bumper to Bumper is an Add-on to a Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy. If you opt for this cover, your insurer will not take depreciation into account at the time of a claim. It has the highest premium as compared to a Third-party Liability and Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy.

The maximum number of claims allowed with a Zero Depreciation Car Insurance policy is two.

Why Zero Depreciation Add-on?

The value of your car decreases with time. This is called depreciation. Your insurance company only pays a portion of the bill as the remaining amount is deducted on the account of depreciation. As per this Add-on, your insurer will pay the maximum payable amount of the whole bill without considering depreciation.

FACTOR # 4

Your Car’s Age

The Insured Declared Value or IDV depends on your car’s value. However, the value of your car reduces every year. So, the older a car is, the lower is its value. This can lower your premium and the sum assured.

However, age also makes a car riskier and more susceptible to damages. Car insurance companies often check your car’s health while deciding the premium.

FACTOR # 5

Extra Security Features

One of the easiest ways to reduce your four-wheeler insurance premium is by installing anti-theft and other security features. This is because insurance companies are in the business of lowering your risk. The lower the risk, the lower is the price of your premium.

FACTOR # 6

Your Claim History

Car insurance companies reward good drivers and those who do not claim.

This is done through a ‘No Claim Bonus’ and is in the form of a discount on your insurance premium. No Claim Bonus reduces your car insurance cost.

ADD-ONS

These are extra services and coverage you ask voluntarily for your policy. They push up your premium but also add extra coverage. Thus, it is important to choose the best-suited Add-ons for you.

COVERAGE

The coverage and services offered vary across different insurance policies.

DEDUCTIBLE

You pay a small portion of the bill, say Rs 1,000. It’s called a Deductible. You can voluntarily increase this to lower premiums. But, at the time of claim, you will have to pay the increased deductible amount from your pocket.

IDV

Insured Declared Value (IDV) is the market value of your car. It lowers over time due to depreciation

NO CLAIM BONUS (NCB)

Insurers reward you when you do not make a claim. Every consecutive no-claim year gets you a bonus or premium discount called ‘No-Claim Bonus’.

ZERO DEPRECIATION

Ensure that your insurer pays you the whole value of your car without deducting any depreciation through a Zero Depreciation cover.
