Planning to buy a car insurance policy? ACKO provides different types of car insurance policies for your unique needs.
Owning third-party car insurance is mandatory while driving a car in India. It protects you against financial liabilities if you damage someone else’s vehicle / property or injure someone in an accident.
Third-party Liability Car Insurance cover will not help if your car gets damaged due to theft, fire, natural disasters, etc. For that, you need to opt for Own Damage policy along with Third Party car insurance policy.
Comprehensive Car Insurance Cover not just secures you against third-party liability but also provides cover against damages or losses to your own car due to accidents, theft, flooding, fire and more. It is advisable to have a comprehensive cover to give optimum coverage for your car.

Due to the wear and tear, car parts value reduces with time. During claims, the insurance company only pays this depreciated value and not the entire value. Best suited for new cars, Zero Depreciation Add-on cover helps you escape depreciation cutbacks and get the full value of car repairs.
Getting stranded on the road with a car that won't start is one of the biggest worries for any driver. With Roadside Assistance add-on you get access to 24x7 emergency roadside assistance, including towing services, during car breakdowns.
Car keys aren’t cheap and the cost can go upwards of Rs. 10,000. With Key Replacement Cover, you can save your money on expenses incurred for replacing a lost, stolen, or damaged key and even a replaced lock, if required.
Outstation Emergency Cover secures you against accidents/breakdowns outside a 100 kilometers radius of your residence during the policy period. Also, enjoy a reimbursement of Rs. 2500 if the repair takes more than 12 hrs.
The cost of items such as engine oil, gearbox oil, lubricants, nut and bolt, screw, etc are not covered during claims. Consumables Cover add-on protects you from expenses incurred on these items during an accident. The good part is - all ACKO’s plans except Third Party Plan include this coverage at no extra cost.
Flooding or not using the car for a long time can damage the engine, which is one of the most expensive parts. Car insurance doesn't cover damages to your car engine. However, the Engine Protection add-on cover shields you from losses caused due to damage to your car engine.
When you raise a claim for your car's damages, you lose out on the No Claim Bonus (NCB) discount. NCB Protection add-on cover keeps this discount intact even if you make a claim. With this add-on, you can raise a claim and still enjoy NCB discount of up to 50%.
Return to Invoice Cover comes to your rescue in case of theft or damage beyond repair. With Return to Invoice add-on cover, you can claim the complete amount as per the car's invoice value. This amount includes car registration cost and road tax as well.

Refer to the below section, where we aim to simplify commonly used terminologies related to the Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy.
You can strengthen your Comprehensive Car Insurance Cover by purchasing add-ons. Add-ons are additional coverages that offer an extra layer of protection to your car.
We offer a wide range of add-ons. You may select one or a combination of them based on your requirement. The more the add-ons, the higher will be the premium.
Note: You can only opt for add-ons with a Comprehensive Policy and not with a basic Third-party Liability Policy. This is because Third Party Insurance does not cover damages to your car.
IDV stands for Insured Declared Value. It is the best estimate of the current market value of your car factoring the age of the vehicle and the natural wear & tear the car would have gone through.
For Own Damage & Comprehensive policies, IDV is important because it is the value you shall receive from us if your car is stolen or is damaged beyond repair.
While buying or renewing your car insurance with ACKO, you get to select the IDV within a set range. The higher the IDV, the higher is your premium.
You get a No Claim Bonus (NCB) if you don't file a claim during the previous policy period. You can avail this discount while renewing your car insurance policy. NCB increases for each claim-free year up to a maximum of 50%. But if you file a claim, it will get reset to 0%.
NCB Protection add-on prevents this drop to 0%, in case of a single claim instance during your claim-free streak.
There are numerous ways in which your car can get damaged. It can get damaged due to a fire accident, natural calamities, the engine can get affected due to water-logging, and many more reasons. Repairing a damaged car is an expensive affair, and a Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy can protect you from spending your hard-earned money on car repairs. The Comprehensive Car Insurance Plan covers these damages to your car (own damage) as well as third party damage.
In the case of Voluntary Deductible, you may choose to contribute a certain fixed amount in case of a claim settlement. In simple terms, it is the part of the claim amount that will not be paid by ACKO.
Voluntary Deductible is over and above a mandatory nominal amount you have to pay on every claim, also known as Compulsory Deductible.
Going for a Voluntary Deductible can reduce the car insurance premium. But it also means a comparatively lower claim amount from ACKO at the time of claim settlement.
As per law, it is mandatory to own a Personal Accident Cover along with Third Party Insurance Plan. A Personal Accident Cover of INR 15 lakhs means that if you suffer permanent disability while driving your car, you will be compensated monetarily as per the terms and conditions. It also covers death.
Hence, we recommend you to combine your car insurance policy with personal accident cover. You need not repurchase it if you already own it.
If you happen to injure a person walking on the street while driving your car or if you damage someone’s property/vehicle while driving your car, you are liable to compensate the person for the damage. Third-party car insurance cover insures you against this liability.
While repairing your car, the garage uses items like engine oil, gearbox oil, lubricants, nut and bolt, screw, etc. These are known as Consumables or Consumable Items. While settling a claim, the cost of such items is not covered. Consumable Cover add-on protects you from expenses incurred on these items during an accident.
You should know what your are paying for. "Inclusions" are all the features & benefits covered in your policy.
To go through the entire list of inclusions & exclusions of your policy, visit the Policy Wordings page to see ACKO's policy wordings.
The gist of what is included in ACKO’s Third-party Liability Car Insurance Policy is :
Damages to a third party person, property or vehicle
It does not include damages to your own car. For comprehensive coverage, you may consider Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy.
Here’s what is included in ACKO's Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy:
- Damages to a third party person, property or vehicle
- Personal Accident Cover
- Car theft
- Own Damage due to fire, calamities, etc.
- Add-on coverage (as applicable)
While it is important to know what is covered in your policy, it is equally important to know what isn't covered.
Things that are not covered in your policy are called "exclusions". Exclusions differ depending on the kind of policy you have purchased. However, there are certain permanent exclusions that will never be covered in an ACKO Car insurance policy.
Here are the permanent exclusions:
- Instances not mentioned in the inclusions of the respective policy
- Damage while driving under the influence of alcohol or intoxicating drugs
- Damage during war or similar conditions
- Damage when your policy is not active
- Damage due to regular servicing and wear and tear expenses
- Damage to tyres, tubes, and engine unless damaged in an accident
- Damage when driving without a valid license
- Damage from items stolen from your car
Please check respective Policy Wordings for more details.
Calculating premium can be a tedious task. However, you do not have to worry, as we will do this task for you. You have to answer a few basic questions during the purchase journey. And you will come to know the car insurance premium within minutes.
You can simply enter the basic information in the car insurance premium calculator (the widget/tool at the top of this page) to know the premium.
Read more about Car Insurance Premium Calculator.
The premium that you pay is determined by a host of factors.
The engine cubic capacity (cc) of your car decides the premium payable on your insurance plan. In simple terms, cc is the volume of the engine’s cylinder. Higher the engine cc, the higher the premium you need to pay.
The wider the cover, the costlier the policy. Premium for Third Party Policy will be lower than a Comprehensive Plan. However, the coverage will be limited. A Comprehensive Plan might seem costlier, but it offers more protection to your car.
Your car’s market value (also called IDV) set by the insurer determines your premium. IDV is the maximum claim you will get from the insurer. IDV changes due to wear & tear with time. Higher IDV, the higher the premium and vice-versa.
You can enhance the Comprehensive Plan with the aid of add-ons as they add an extra layer of protection to the policy. We offer various add-ons, and you can choose one or a combination of them depending on your requirement. The more add-ons you add, the higher the premium.
For a new car, the cost of replacement of the parts/repairs can be higher. Also, the car's value reduces with wear and tear. So the older the car, the lower its value, which reduces the premium amount.
However, age also makes a car more susceptible to damages. Hence, insurance companies check your car’s health while deciding the premium.
If you have higher records of accidents, then the probability of damage is more, which will increase your claims.
Claim's history negatively impacts the premium you have to pay during policy renewal. Claims affect your No Claim Bonus component, and as a result, the premium will be higher.
The Deductible is the amount you will have to pay while settling a claim. The insurance company will bear the rest of the approved amount.
Other than the mandatory nominal amount you have to pay on every claim, you can opt to increase your deductibles. The higher the deductibles, the lower the premium charged.
The insurance companies decide your premium based on other factors such as your location, fuel, deductibles, security features in your car, etc.
For example: A few areas may demand more premium due to higher traffic congestion. Also, owning a CNG car may attract more premium due to higher maintenance compared to petrol/diesel cars.
Depending on the kind of plan you have purchased, your preference and the severity of claim; there are different claim options available to you.
Just register a claim in a few minutes on ACKO's App or Website, and our team will take care of the rest. One of our team members will pick up the car from your address, get it repaired at our partner garage and deliver the car back to you within 3 working days.
Inform ACKO about the claim before taking your car to a garage. Get the repairs done at the garage on your own. We will settle the repair bill with the garage directly to give you a cashless experience for the approved claim amount.
For minor damages such as a car’s loose bumper or damaged mirror, ACKO provides Instant Claim Settlement. ACKO will immediately transfer the approved claim amount to your account so you can get the repairs done on your own.
In case you wish to get your car repaired at a garage of your choice, just inform ACKO first. Our team will arrange for an inspection, and you can carry out the repairs and pay at the garage. You can file for a reimbursement later, and ACKO will deposit the approved settlement amount to your account.
We have covered in detail how the two policies differ here: Differences between Third-party and Comprehensive Car Insurance.
Below is a quick snapshot of key differences between the two to help you decide which policy provides the right coverage for your car.
|Points||Third-Party Liability Policy||Comprehensive Policy|
|What does this type of policy cover?||It covers injury to third parties and damages to their property/vehicle. Say, if the insured car injures a pedestrian walking on the footpath, this policy will cover the charges for treating those injuries. It does not cover damage to your car or damage/loss due to permanent disability/death. In that case, you may buy a Personal Accident Cover (optional) which insures you against permanent disabilities/death while driving.||It covers third-party liabilities, and Own Damage Cover. This means you are covered for the damages/losses to your car due to fire, flooding, theft, etc.To further enhance your insurance plan, it is recommended to also opt for a Personal Accident Cover.|
|Benefit||This cover ensures that you comply with the law and save the penalty of Rs. 2,000.||This cover ensures that you comply with the law and save your money on car repairs in events such as an accident, theft, fire, or natural disaster.|
|Disadvantages||The disadvantages of this policy are its limitations. It only offers basic Liability Coverage. It does not cover damages to your car.||Because of wider coverage (Third Party Insurance plan plus damages to your car), it is costlier as compared to a Third Party Insurance Plan.|
|Personalization||It is not possible to customize this plan.||You can personalize this plan with the help of four primary points: Insured Declared Value (IDV), Voluntary Deductible, Security Devices such as anti-theft devices, and Add-ons.|
You should try your best renew your Car Insurance in time, and never let it expire. Here's why:
Driving without valid Insurance is illegal in India and can attract heavy penalties.
You lose out on your No Claim Bonus if you fail to renew the policy within 90 days after your policy expires.
If any incident like accident or theft occurs while your insurance is lapsed, it won't be covered by insurance.
Insurance prices usually see an increase each year. A delay in renewals might cause an increase in premium rates for you.
