Car insurance in Kolkata

Home / Car Insurance / Kolkata

Kolkata aka Calcutta, is the capital of West Bengal and one of the most busiest cities in India. Owing to this, car accidents can be quite frequent here. Fortunately, buying car insurance will give you the financial support you need to manage such accident-related expenses. So, if you are looking to buy car insurance in Kolkata, read ahead to know your options.

Car insurance plans in Kolkata

Buying or renewing car insurance in Kolkata, via ACKO, is simple and seamless. You can do so via our website as well as our mobile app. Here are the car insurance options offered by ACKO.

Third-party Insurance

As per Government mandates, all car owners must buy Third-party Car Insurance. This plan offers financial compensation to a third party if involved in an accident with your insured car. This plan covers injury, death, or property damage occurring to a third party.

Own Damage (OD) Cover

An OD cover offers financial safety against theft/total loss and accidental damage to your car. Accidental damages include damages caused by road accidents and natural or manmade calamities. This plan is also popularly referred to as a stand-alone OD policy.

Comprehensive - Basic

The Comprehensive - Basic offers the integrated benefits of the Third-party Insurance Policy and the Own Damage Cover. So, in case of an accident, you will be covered for both third-party liabilities and damages to your own vehicle.

Comprehensive - Super Saver

This plan offers all the coverages of a Comprehensive - Basic Plan. In addition to that, you also get free pick up and drop off of your car for claim-related repairs. This plan has one condition, however. If you fail to inform us before getting any damage-related repairs done, you must put down Rs. 5,000 as a deductible.

Zero Depreciation - Basic

This plan is otherwise called the “bumper to bumper car insurance plan”. As you may know, car parts depreciate over time. However, if you buy a Zero Depreciation - Basic Plan, you need not worry about depreciation costs during related repairs. It will be covered along with all the coverages available under a Comprehensive - Basic Plan.

Zero Depreciation - Smart Saver

Unique to ACKO, this plan offers all the coverages of a Zero Depreciation - Basic Plan at a lower premium. However, if you raise an accident-related claim, you will have to contribute Rs. 5,000 from your pocket. So, if you are confident that you are unlikely to submit any claims, this plan is perfect for you!

Zero Depreciation - Super Saver

Available only with ACKO, this plan offers the integrated financial protection of a Comprehensive and Zero Depreciation Car insurance Cover. Additionally, you can also avail the service of free pick up and drop off of your car for claim-based repairs. Nonetheless, failure to inform ACKO before availing claim-related repairs will incur a deductible of Rs. 5,000.

Personal Accident Cover

Although not a car insurance policy, this cover is mandatory as per law, along with a Third-party Car Insurance. It offers financial support if the insured incurs unfortunate accidental disability or death.

Note: The plans and features mentioned above are subject to availability. Please check availability and details while purchasing car insurance.

Need for car insurance in Kolkata

Home to several industrial units, colonial architecture attractions, and art galleries, Kolkata is one of the busiest cities in India. Consequently, road traffic is high in this city. Unfortunately, according to the 2021 Annual Review of the Kolkata Traffic Police, there were a total of 1,717 accident cases recorded in the year 2021. 

Thus, driving your car on Kolkata roads exposes you to the possibility of accidents. And driving without possessing adequate insurance coverage can lead to incurring frequent repair costs resulting due to the accidents. These costs can mount up and turn into a significant financial burden for you. So, it is wise to buy sufficient car insurance coverage in advance to avoid paying for accidental-damage costs from your own pocket.

Apart from the fact that car insurance is mandatory (Third-party Insurance is a legal requirement), a wide-ranging policy (Comprehensive Insurance) can also help you keep your savings safe by offering financial assistance during unfortunate car-related mishaps.
