Bhopal is the second most populated city in the state of Madhya Pradesh. As a result, the vehicular traffic density in the city is high, which consequently increases the chances of road accidents. Thus, insuring your car with a suitable four-wheeler insurance policy is a must. Here’s how to buy car insurance in Bhopal.
If you are searching for the best car insurance policy in Bhopal, look no further! Here are the plans that ACKO offers to financially protect you against various car-related expenses in Bhopal.
In accordance with The Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, every car owner must buy third party car insurance to be financially protected against third-party liabilities. These include injuries, death and property damage befalling a third party as a result of a collision with your car.
An OD cover provides coverage for damages or total loss occurring to your vehicle. The inclusions under this cover are vehicle theft, accident-induced damages and losses due to natural and man-made catastrophes.
This cover provides the benefits of both the Third-party and OD Cover. So, you are covered against third-party liabilities and loss or damage occurring to your own vehicle.
This plan offers all the coverages of a Comprehensive - Basic Plan, plus an added benefit that offers a superior claims experience. As per this plan, if you raise an accident claim, we will get your car repaired at a network garage and deliver it back to you at zero cost. Nevertheless, keep in mind that if you get repair work done without informing us, you need to pay a deductible of Rs. 5,000.
Zero Depreciation Car Insuranceis sometimes also referred to as “bumper to bumper insurance”. This plan includes all the coverages of a Comprehensive - Basic Plan, plus protection against the depreciation of vehicle parts. If you don’t buy this plan, fibre and plastic car parts will be covered only partially.
As may be obvious by its name, this plan offers all the coverages of a Zero Depreciation plan, but at a discounted cost. The only catch is you have to first exhaust Rs. 5,000 as deductible from your side before the benefits of this plan kick in. So, if you are sure of your driving skills, this plan may be a good cost-saving insurance option for you.
This plan provides the benefits of a Zero Depreciation - Basic Plan. You also can avail of a free pick up, repair and drop service for approved repairs. Just be careful to inform us before getting your car repaired on your own. Because, if you don’t, you will have to pay a deductible of Rs 5,000 from your side.
