This plan clubs the benefits of a Third-party and Own Damage Cover. This way, you receive coverage for scenarios covered under both covers.

4. Comprehensive - Super Saver
Jump Tag Icon

As the name suggests, this plan offers the coverages of a Comprehensive Plan and a little more. You get the added benefit of free pick up and drop of your car for claim-related repairs. The only downside is, that you will have to pay a deductible of Rs. 5,000 if you get your car repaired without giving us prior notice.

5. Zero Depreciation - Basic

Zero Depreciation Car Insurance is also popularly referred to as a “bumper to bumper insurance plan”. It offers the coverages of a Comprehensive - Basic Plan and also covers the depreciation costs of vehicle parts. In the absence of this plan, coverage usually extends only partially towards the replacement/repair of fibre and plastic car parts.

6. Zero Depreciation - Smart Saver
Jump Tag Icon

This plan provides all the benefits of a Zero Depreciation Plan at a reduced premium. However, coverage under this plan will get activated only if you pay a deductible of Rs. 5,000 during an accident-related claim. So, if you are confident that you are a safe driver and hence, unlikely to raise any claims, this plan is a cost-effective option for you.

7. Zero Depreciation - Super Saver
Jump Tag Icon

This plan combines the benefits of a Comprehensive and Zero Depreciation plan. It also offers a free pick-up and drop facility for any claim-based repairs. The only catch is if you fail to inform us before getting your car repaired, you will have to put down a deductible of Rs. 5,000 from your side.

8. Personal Accident Cover

A Personal Accident (PA) Cover is not a motor insurance plan. Nevertheless, as per traffic laws, it is mandatory to have one to legally drive in India. It financially compensates the insured in the unfortunate event of disability or death resulting from an accident.

Note: The details of the plans described above are subject to updates and availability. Thus, kindly refer to the policy wordings of a plan before making any insurance-related decisions.
