Dehradun, the capital of Uttarakhand, is the most populated city in the state. Generally, high population translates to high road traffic, and high road traffic typically increases the probability of road accidents. That is why it is recommended to buy wide-ranging car insurance in Dehradun. That way, you will be able to manage accident-related costs pertaining to your four-wheeler. In this article, we have shared some vital information about car insurance in Dehradun. So, if you are a resident of this city and own a car, read ahead to know your insurance options.
A Third-party Policy insures you against third-party liabilities. So, if you cause injuries, death or property damage to a third party (via your car), they will be compensated. Please note that as per The Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, this policy is mandatory for all car owners.
An Own Damage (OD) cover financially protects you against vehicle theft and damages to your car. The types of damages covered include accidental collisions and damages caused by manmade and natural disasters.
A Comprehensive - Basic policy offers the combined financial protection of a Third-party and OD Cover. It also allows you to upgrade coverage by choosing add-ons.
This is a plan that is exclusive to us. It offers the coverage of a Comprehensive Policy plus free vehicle transportation for claim-related repairs. However, if you choose to get your car repaired without involving us, you need to communicate the same. If not, you will be charged a deductible worth Rs. 5,000.
A Zero Depreciation - Basic Plan offers the coverage of a Comprehensive Policy and also protects you against the depreciation costs of vehicle parts. In the absence of this plan, certain car parts will only be partially covered during claim settlement.
A Zero Depreciation - Smart Saver Plan is the discounted version of the Zero Depreciation - Basic Plan. The only catch is during a claim there’s a deductible of Rs. 5,000. After you pay that amount, we will start covering you.
Under this plan, you get the coverage of a Comprehensive Policy and Zero Depreciation Cover. You also get an added benefit: if your car incurs any accident-related damages and you inform us, we will arrange for free transportation to a network garage. However, if you do not inform us before taking your car for claim-related repairs, there’s a deductible of Rs. 5,000.
A Personal Accident (PA) Cover is not considered a car insurance policy. Nevertheless, as per the law, all Indian motor vehicle owners need to have one. A PA cover provides monetary compensation to the insured if they incur accident-related disabilities or death.
Since Dehradun is a densely populated city, there is a high risk of road accidents. Unfortunately, even cars with the best safety features are vulnerable to incurring damages due to road accidents.

That way, you will be safeguarded from the financial consequences of a potential road accident. Not only that, you will be covered against vehicle theft, third-party liabilities, and damages caused by manmade or natural calamities as well.
