Toyota Prius is an elegant sedan that was launched in India in 2017. However, it was discontinued in 2020. If you happen to own this car, this article is for you! Here we have enumerated the Toyota Prius insurance options and the benefits of online car insurance. So, read ahead to learn how to protect yourself from the monetary consequences of accident-related damages to your Prius.
Buying online car insurance for your Toyota Prius offers the following advantages.
The purchase procedure for conventional offline insurance may include filling out numerous forms. In contrast, since online insurance is digital, you just have to type in a few details digitally on the website/mobile application of the insurer while making a policy purchase.
Offline insurance can usually be bought only by visiting the insurance company in person. Also, raising claims for accident-related damages usually requires a physical visitation. On the other hand, online insurance can be bought and claimed from anywhere with an internet-connected device.
You may be new to online insurance, but no problem! Insurers typically provide a detailed help guide for beginners and those needing assistance. If you prefer speaking to an executive instead, there is usually also a toll-free number to call and ask for guidance.
There are broadly two car policies applicable for a Toyota Prius: Third-party Car Insurance and Comprehensive Car Insurance. In this section, we will discuss both.
As per The Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, all car owners must possess active Third-party Insurance to drive in India legally. This type of policy covers the financial repercussions of your car causing injury, death or property damage to a third party. However, if your insured Prius faces accident-related damages, they will not be covered by this policy.
A Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy provides mandatory Third-party Cover and an Own Damage (OD) Cover. An OD cover provides financial protection against damages to your insured vehicle. Some of its inclusions are theft, total damage and damages caused by natural and man-made calamities. A Comprehensive policy also allows you to enhance its coverage by buying add-ons.
You can claim your Toyota Prius car insurance (Comprehensive Policy) in the following scenarios.
If your car gets damaged due to a collision
If your car has accidentally caused third-party injury, death or property damage
If your car is damaged as a result of natural calamities like earthquakes, floods, storms, etc.
If your car is damaged as a result of man-made calamities like strikes, vandalism, riots etc.
If your Prius has endured a fire accident
If someone steals your car
