If you own a car or planning to buy a new car, then buying car insurance is a must. A car insurance policy not only makes sure that your vehicle complies with the legal requirements but also provides financial backup in case of a mishap. Similar to any other vehicle, buying Opel Insurance for your Opel car is crucial. Read on as this article will throw light on all aspects of Opel Car Insurance.
Buying car insurance is important in India, be it for Opel cars or any other car models. A third-party liability cover is mandatory for your vehicle to comply with the rules and regulations. Driving a car without valid car insurance is an offence in India, and doing so might attract hefty penalties. Apart from that, there are a host of benefits of buying car insurance for Opel cars, which are listed below:
A Third-Party and Comprehensive Car Insurance Plan offer mandatory third-party liability coverage. If your insured car damages another person’s vehicle/property or injures a third-party, then such losses will be covered by the car insurance policy. Having a third-party cover for your vehicle is compulsory to comply with the legal requirements.
A Comprehensive Car Insurance Plan provides an Own Damage cover, which provides coverage against damage to your car. If your car is damaged in an accident, or damaged due to fire or natural disaster or man-made calamities, then the insurance policy will cover such damages. With a Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy, you need not worry about repair works.
Whether you choose the Third-Party or Comprehensive Car Insurance Plan, the Personal Accident (PA) Cover add-on is mandatory. The PA cover provides coverage against injury/accidental death of the driver/owner. If the driver of the car suffers a disability/accidental death, then the insurance company will cover such losses.
A Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy gives you the flexibility of expanding the coverage benefits via add-ons. You can individually purchase add-ons along with the Comprehensive Policy. There are a host of add-ons available for car insurance and choose the required add-ons depending on your vehicle.
A Comprehensive Car Insurance Plan also covers theft or total loss of the insured vehicle. If your Opel car is totalled in an accident or stolen, then the insurance policy will cover such losses. In case of a total loss or theft, the insurer will pay you the IDV of the car.
You can opt for any of two types of motor insurance plans for Opel cars: Third-Party Car Insurance Plan and Comprehensive Car Insurance Plan. Below are the details of both the car insurance plans:

However, a third-party cover is mandatory for your vehicle to comply with the rules and regulations. The insurance plan provides coverage against damage to third-party vehicle/property or life. Also, you cannot purchase add-ons with the Third-Party Car Insurance Plan.
A Comprehensive Car Insurance Plan provides extensive coverage as it includes both third-party and Own Damage cover. The insurance policy covers damages to your vehicle and also theft or total loss of the insured vehicle. You can also expand the coverage benefits via add-ons. Apart from that, the mandatory Personal Accident (PA) add-on covers injury/accidental death of the driver/owner.
