Ford Freestyle is a Compact Utility Vehicle (CUV) that was launched by Ford in India in 2018 and discontinued in 2021. If you happen to own this smart-looking four-wheeler, this article is for you. Here, we have highlighted Ford Freestyle’s insurance options and the benefits of buying it online.
Here are some of the benefits of online Ford Freestyle insurance.
If you buy car insurance for your Ford Freestyle online, you can skip the hassle of filling out endless physical forms. All you have to do is visit an insurer’s website, fill in a few details, select a policy and pay for it. Once the payment is completed, you will receive the policy document in your email.
Buying car insurance and raising claims against it offline may require you to visit your insurance company/agent in person. On the other hand, online car insurance can be bought, renewed and claimed against from anywhere, as long as you have an internet-connected smartphone or computer.
If you are new to online insurance, no problem! There is usually a toll-free number or a self-help section on the website/app of online insurers to help you clear your queries. This 24x7 assistance especially comes in handy in the event of an unfortunate road accident.
The two major car insurance policies available for Ford Freestyle are as follows.
A Third-party Car Policy is the most basic financial protection you can get for your Freestyle. The Motor Vehicles Act of 1988 states that possessing this policy is a legal necessity to drive on Indian roads. As its name suggests, it offers coverage against collision-caused injury, death to, or property damage of, a third party.
A Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy offers the coverage of a Third-party Policy and an Own Damage (OD) cover. An OD cover provides financial protection against theft, fires and natural and man-made calamities. In addition, this type of policy also provides the option of selecting add-ons. Add-ons help to boost the coverage of the policy.
