The Mahindra XUV500 is a stunning vehicle. If you are a proud owner of this car or want to buy it in the near future, make sure to insure it with a Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy. Buying a good policy is not enough. It needs to be purchased from a responsive insurer as well. Car insurance needs periodic renewal. And choosing a customer-friendly insurer will help you sort your Mahindra XUV500’s insurance requirements in the long run. Read more about how to go about doing so in the following sections.
Here are some pointers highlighting the importance of choosing a Comprehensive Cover for your Mahindra XUV500.
The Own Damage Cover is the main component of a Comprehensive Plan. With this cover, you can rest assured that the insurer will insure your car against damages arising out of fire, accidents, calamities. There’s a theft cover as well.
The XUV500 is a car that is perfect for road trips and off-roading. These endeavours can be slightly risky in terms of insurance. Thus, cushioning the policy with relevant car insurance add-ons such as Zero Depreciation, Roadside Assistance, etc. can be productive.
Accidents and vehicle breakdowns can occur at a time when you are least expecting them. With an insurer by your side, you will have a ‘go-to’ source in case you are involved in a car mishap. You simply need to contact the insurer and follow the process laid out by them to ensure your car is repaired. Without such assistance, you might feel lost and inconvenienced.
Primarily, there are two types of car insurance plans available for the Mahindra XUV500 in India. The rest can be a version of the following two plans.
If you are of the opinion that car insurance is not helpful, and it should be purchased just because the law mandates it, then the Third-party Car Insurance Policy can be considered. It offers the liability coverage but does not insure your car if it gets damaged as it does not feature the Own Damage Cover. Here, the XUV500 insurance cost is minimal, the plan cannot be personalised with add-ons, and is not the preferred choice for enhanced coverage.
A Comprehensive Cover and its other variants such as the Zero Depreciation Car Insurance Policy are better alternatives to the basic plan. They not only offer the cover offered by the basic plan, but they also ensure Own Damage Coverage and the option to pick suitable add-ons to customise your insurance plan.
Add-ons are a way to customise your insurance plan. They can cover the exclusions of a plan and be of great help in the form of a service or to receive a higher claim settlement. The key is to buy only those additional covers that add value to you personally as a policyholder. For example, Roadside Assistance is a beneficial add-on for emergency assistance if the car breaks down.
Here’s a list of some of the commonly purchased add-on covers.
The inclusions section of a Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy needs to be given special attention while buying or renewing the plan. It features those situations that shall be covered under the said policy. Here are some generic inclusions.
The insurer shall cover losses arising due to Third-party Liabilities
The insurer shall cover losses arising due to incidents such as fire, flooding, rioting, etc.
The insurer shall compensate the policyholder with the Insured Declared Value of the vehicle if it is stolen or damaged beyond repair.
If add-on covers are purchased, applicable coverage shall apply.
Going through the list of exclusions is equally, if not more, important than knowing the list of inclusions. It is the exact opposite of the above-mentioned sections. It features instances where the insurer will not cover the losses. It is crucial to go through this list before purchasing the policy to know the scope of the cover and before applying for a claim to know if the insurer will cover the loss or not. Here’s an overview of the exclusions.
The insurer shall cover losses if you hold an invalid policy
The insurer shall cover losses arising due to drunk driving
The insurer shall cover losses arising if the driver did not follow traffic rules
The insurer shall cover losses arising due to regular wear and tear/mechanical breakdowns, etc.
The insurer shall cover losses if relevant add-ons are not purchased.
