How is Car Insurance Premium Calculated?

Factors that have the biggest impact on the calculation of your Car Insurance Premium are listed below. ACKO uses a combination of these factors and its proprietary algorithms to tailor the best insurance rates for your car.


Your Car

Each car has a different cost. Their spare parts are priced differently too. Since insurance covers the cost of damages, theft, etc., the premiums differ for different car make, model and variants.


Coverage of Policy

The type of coverage you choose: Third-party, Own Damage, Comprehensive. ACKO has some unique flavours of these plans to choose from too. Coverage is the biggest factor in premium calculation.


No Claim Bonus (NCB)

As the name suggests, NCB is a discount for not filing a claim in the previous year. NCB is retained even if you switch insurance companies. NCB discount increases for every consecutive claim free year and goes as high as 50% discount on premium.


Insured Declared Value (IDV)

IDV is the current value of your used car. With a comprehensive policy, the insurance company will pay the IDV amount in the event of total damage or theft. Higher IDV leads to higher premiums.



You can select additional benefits for your policy like Zero Depreciation, Engine Protect, Roadside Assistance and more. These are commonly known as 'add-ons'. They come at an extra cost over your base policy.



ACKO offers many types of discounts for good behaviour like driving safely, renewing policy ahead of expiry and much more. You can use them to enhance your coverage or save on your premiums.


Personal Accident Cover

Owning a 'Personal Accident Cover' is a government mandate if you are driving a car in India. It gives you Rs. 15 Lakhs insurance against accidental injuries. Opting to buy this increases your premium.


Goods & Services Tax (GST)

After you have finished customising your Car Insurance Plan, 18% GST will be applied on the final premium. This is applicable on Car Insurance plans of all general insurance companies in India.

Car Insurance Prices

Read on to find out how you can calculate Car Insurance Prices.

The car insurance price is commonly called "Car Insurance premium"

Premium is the amount you pay to buy an insurance policy. Once the premium is paid, the insurance company provides coverage for your car as per the terms and conditions mentioned in your car insurance policy.

The premium rates are different for different kinds of plans, features, previous insurance and car details. Which is why an online calculator is the best tool to find out exact premium rates for car insurance. 

However, rates for Third-party car insurance are set by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI). These premium rates are the same across all general insurance companies. They are revised from time to time to keep up with loss ratios of insurance companies and also inflation.

Third-party car insurance premium rates only differ based on type of cars. Below is a comparison of premium rates for Third-Party liability insurance premium for the Financial Year (FY) 2019-20.

Tips to Reduce Car Insurance Premium

We all like to save more. So here are 3 tips to save reduce your Car Insurance premiums.

Easy with the IDV

Go easy with Insured Declared Value (IDV). Higher the IDV, higher the premiums.

Keep IDV as close to what you think your car is truly worth in the second-hand market.

Careful with Claims

You shouldn't claim for very small damages because you lose out on No Claim Bonus (NCB).

For every claim-free year NCB keeps increasing and can get you up to 50% off on premiums.

Smart Add-ons

Use add-ons that can help you reduce premiums.

They might add a deductible during claims, but often a saving 'right now' is better than a 'may-be' spend at the time of claims.

How To Calculate Car Insurance Premium Amount Via Android Or iOS App? 

One of the biggest advantages of buying car insurance online is that one can get an idea about the price of their policy in advance. You can calculate the approximate amount of premium easily through your iOS or Android-powered cell phone. The following steps will help you calculate car insurance premiums through your phone.

Step 1:  Download ACKO's car insurance calculator app from Play Store for Android and from Apple Store for iOS devices.

Step 2: Log in to your ACKO profile, click on "Car insurance", and enter your car details.

Step 3: Enter details like the car's registration number, and claim history. Set the Insured Declared Value (IDV) and select required add-ons.

You can now see your car insurance quote. Note that you can tweak a few details, for example, the IDV or add-ons to adjust the quote.

Add-ons Available with Car Insurance

Here are some popular add-ons available for Car Insurance


Zero Depreciation

This is by far the most popular add-on and for good reason. The longer you drive your car, its market value depreciates. Metal, fibre, plastic parts all depreciate at a different rate. At the time of claims if any of these parts are replaced, insurance companies only pay for the depreciated cost, and not the cost of new part. Ex: A used fibre part may have depreciated value of Rs. 500 vs a new replacement that costs Rs. 1000. Insurance companies normally pay Rs. 500 for the used part.

If you have opted for Zero Depreciation add-on, insurance companies pay for the complete cost of new part (as long as the claim against it gets approved).

Tip: If your car is less than 5 yrs old, you should definitely opt for Zero Depreciation add-on.


Engine Protect

Cost of engine repair or engine replacement is usually not covered under a Car Insurance policy. There are a lot of expensive parts inside the engine and a full replacement can run in lakhs of rupees. If you have opted for an Engine Protect add-on the repair and replacement cost of car engine will be covered by your insurance policy.

Tip: New car owners often think that engine won't need repairs or replacement for many years, and they are quite right in their thinking. Unless, you live in a flood prone region. In India, heavy rains and floods can damage the engine of a relatively new car too. If you live in a region that sees heavy rains, we recommend you take the Engine Protect add-on.



Consumable items such as engine and gearbox oil, nuts and screws, lubricants, washer, and other such items are usually not covered by insurance because overtime their value goes to zero. But if you don't want to pay for them out of your own pocket at the time of claims, you can opt for a Consumables Cover add-on.

Tip: For small repairs cost of consumables is quite low, but for major repairs this can easily go up in thousands of rupees. If you want peace of mind during claims, this is a relatively low cost add-on to opt for.


Roadside Assistance (RSA)

When you are on a long drive, one of the worst things that can happen to you is getting stranded with a broken down car. This is the time you need roadside assistance services like towing of your car, on-spot repairs, battery jumpstart, spare key retrieval, fuel and flat tyre support. A roadside assistance add-on helps you with these services.

Tip: If you frequently go on road-trips on highways, this is an excellent add-on to have and so you can drive worry free.

How much does your car insurance cost per month in India?

Choosing an affordable car insurance policy for your vehicle may be one of your utmost priorities while shopping for a car insurance plan. But, you may be wondering how much car insurance costs you per month. Well, it isn’t challenging to understand the pricing of the car insurance plan. Here are the details of the cost of car insurance per month and what factors influence the price of a car insurance policy in India to make the right choice.

Car insurance cost per month in India

The car insurance premium is typically payable yearly. Hence, there is no fixed rate per month for car owners in India. Insurers use several factors to calculate the car insurance premium for a vehicle. However, to ensure you know the cost to insure your car, it is prudent to use the car insurance premium calculator at the top of this page to determine the per annum cost. You can then calculate the car insurance cost per month.

Primary factors affecting car insurance cost

Unlike Third-party Liability Plan (TP) rates fixed by the industry regulator IRDAI, the Comprehensive Car Insurance rate, which includes Third-party Insurance and Own Damage cover components, is set by the insurer. Here are the factors required to determine the cost of car insurance in India.

1. Insured Declared Value (IDV)

The vehicle's current market value.

2. Type of vehicle insurance

Whether you buy the TP plan or the Comprehensive plan.

3. Year of manufacture

The year of manufacture is required to calculate the cost to determine the age of the vehicle.

4. Engine capacity

The engine capacity, also known as “cc”, is essential to determining the cost.

Ways to Save Car Insurance Renewal Cost

However, while renewing car insurance you probably may want to save more money while enjoying the same benefits. So, if you are anything like us and hate to pay more than what is required, here are a few effective (by the way, did we tell you tried and tested before) ways to save the car insurance renewal cost.

1. Know your requirements before renewing your car insurance

Several of us believe, especially those new to car insurance, that we can purchase insurance policies without much analysis about the type of insurance plan that suits our requirements. Before buying a car insurance plan, you need to list your requirements and settle on a plan that suits your needs. 

This way, you can avoid buying insurance policies that offer coverage that you actually don’t need. And if you may want to further enhance your plan, consider opting for add-ons. Add-ons are smaller covers that provide financial support against specific damages or losses. 

2. Go online

The online or the digital platform lets you renew your car insurance policy within a few minutes. You don’t have to fill in exhaustive forms or submit physical documents to renew the policy. Digital-first insurers such as ACKO offer insurance only through the online platform. Even renewal of the policy can be done without visiting a branch or through an insurance agent.

ACKO follows a direct-to-customer mode; hence, you can buy, renew and raise claims online. With no middlemen and digital infrastructure, we are able to pass on the savings to you in the form of low-cost car insurance policies. This way, you have access to affordable insurance plans along with a hassle-free experience.

3. Make use of NCB

No Claim Bonus (NCB) can go up to 50% if you don’t submit any claims for five consecutive years. Avoid raising claims for minor damages since it impacts the NCB. It is recommended to raise claims for damages where repair costs exceed the NCB discount. You can use the NCB to save money on the car insurance renewal premium.

4. Opt for a multi-year car insurance policy

One of the ideal ways to reduce your car insurance renewal premium rate is to opt for a multi-year insurance policy. You can opt for the 3-year long-term insurance policy with ACKO to enjoy additional discounts on the renewal premium rate.

5. Compare policies

There are several car insurance policies in the market, and each has a unique premium rate. To find the lowest premium rate and reduce the renewal premium, you must compare the policies based on the benefits and features that they bring with them. With the digital revolution, you can compare car insurance policies within a few minutes using the online platform. 

You can compare different plans online at your convenience instead of depending on different agents or visiting various insurance company offices. Choose the plan that offers the highest coverage at a lower car insurance renewal premium without compromising on the services.

6. Choose the appropriate Insured Declared Value (IDV)

When you insure your car with a Comprehensive Insurance plan, it is vital that you set the right IDV. It is the approximate market value of your car. This is the maximum amount that is payable during claims. 

Hence, choose the correct IDV. Please note that setting a higher IDV leads to a higher premium rate and higher claim settlement amount. On the other hand, setting lower IDV results in a lower premium and claim amount in case of total loss or theft.

7. Don’t let the policy lapse

It is imperative to renew your car insurance policy within the expiry date. If your policy lapses, then the insurer will not offer any discount or additional benefits at the time of renewing the plan. Also, if you don’t renew the plan within 90 days from the date of expiry, you will lose the No Claim Bonus (NCB) that you receive for not filing claims during the policy tenure.

8. Choose a voluntary deductible

Every car insurance plan has a mandatory deductible and an optional (voluntary) deductible. You can opt for the voluntary deductible to reduce the premium rate while renewing your car insurance plan. Since you opt to bear a certain percentage (voluntary deductible) of the claim amount, the claim settlement amount and even the premium amount reduces.

9. Hunt for discounts

Look out for deals that can reduce your car insurance renewal premium. Look out for discounts during festivals or special events. You may have to do some research; however, a discount on renewal premium certainly helps you save money.

10. Secure your car

You can get an additional discount on the car insurance renewal premium if you secure your car with an anti-theft device approved by the Automobile Research Association of India (ARAI). Since you are trying to reduce liabilities such as thefts, you may receive discounts on the renewal premium.

FAQs About Car Insurance Premium Calculator

Does the car model impact or affect the car insurance premium?

Yes, the car model is an important factor while calculating the car insurance premium. The Third-party premium is dependent on the cubic capacity of your car's engine. Make-model also determines the market value or the Insured Declared Value (IDV) of the car. Higher IDV usually results in increasing the premium amount.

How does the car insurance calculator help in determining the car insurance premium?

The calculator lets you select the cover, change the IDV, include add-on covers and NCB, and based on that information lets you know the premium you will have to pay to the insurer. This lets you make an informed choice before you buy the best car insurance policy.

How is the surveyor fee calculated for an expired car insurance policy?

ACKO doesn't charge you any surveyor fee for an expired car insurance.

Can I pay car insurance premiums in instalments?

Yes, there are EMI options available for some insurance plans. They will be available to you on the payment page online. You can always talk to one of our advisors if you need additional help.

Does the location of the car impact the car insurance premium rate?

Yes. The location of the car is an important factor for calculating the insurance premium. The cost of the car varies in different states and cities. This has a direct impact on IDV and in-turn the insurance premiums.

Why should you look beyond premium while buying car insurance?

When it comes to protecting your car against accidental damages or losses, you need to look beyond the premium of the insurance plan. Apart from the cost, it would be best to consider other vital factors such as the insurer's services, ease of insuring your vehicle, claim settlement process and customer service for a holistic insurance plan. Consider these factors while shopping for car insurance for wide-ranging benefits apart from the affordability of the insurance plan.

What is the ideal time to renew car insurance?

It is a good practice to renew your car insurance plan 15 to 20 days before the policy renewal date. This way, you ensure the continuity of the coverage and enjoy the benefits of any additional discounts.

Can I switch to a new insurer while renewing my car insurance?

Yes, you can switch to a new insurer while renewing the insurance policy for your car. You may get better or low-cost insurance renewal premium rates from the new insurer, and it is not mandatory that you need to stay with your existing insurer.

Will modifications to my car affect my car insurance renewal premium?

Avoid modifying your car that may hamper the use of safety features such as airbags. All banned or unauthorised modifications to your car may result in the rejection of your claims. Additionally, your car insurance renewal premium rate may increase since the cost of repairing such parts is higher.

Is it advisable to raise claims for minor damages?

One of the most significant setbacks of raising a claim during the policy period is the loss of the No Claim Bonus. If you wish to save on the renewal cost, you must avoid raising claims for minor damages to prevent the loss of the NCB discount.

Is renewing car insurance online safe?

Yes, it is completely safe. Insurers such as ACKO are licenced by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI), to sell car insurance policies in India.

How is car insurance renewal premium calculated?

Your car insurance premium rate is primarily based on the IDV, model, engine cubic capacity, year of manufacture and location. You can use the car insurance premium calculator to understand the renewal cost of your car insurance.

Are there any discounts that can help reduce the car insurance premium quote?

Yes. By ensuring a claim-free year, you get to enjoy the benefits of No Claim Bonus (NCB), which acts as a discount while renewing the policy. We (ACKO) often provide personalised discounts to our customers that can help you save over and above NCB.

What is a mandatory excess in car insurance?

This is also referred to as Voluntary Deductible. This is a part of the claim amount that you will need to pay on your own. Voluntary Deductible is usually taken to reduce insurance premium without compromising on benefits as it still protects you from a major financial loss.

Do I need to complete paperwork/documentation to avail car insurance online?

Not with digital-first insurance companies like ACKO. You can buy car insurance online on ACKO with zero paperwork involved. It only takes a few minutes to get a policy online.

Some of the important ones are the make-model of your car, your current city, previous claims history, choice of coverage, add-ons and any redeemable offers or discounts.
