Here are the main types of car insurance plans for Volkswagen cars in India.
For financial protection against third-party liabilities that include injury/death to the third party or damages to the third-party property, the TP Liability plan covers such liabilities. The Third-party Car insurance plan is also compulsory as per The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988; hence, you need to insure your Volkswagen car at least with this plan. However, it does not cover damages or losses to the insured vehicle.
For financial protection against damages/losses to the insured vehicle such as an accident, man-made/natural disasters (strikes, floods, etc.), explosion/fire, or losses arising due to the theft of the vehicle or if the damages are beyond repair, this plan covers such liabilities. It also covers third-party liabilities, making it an ideal for Volkswagen cars. Additionally, you can include add-on covers to extend the plan’s coverage.
Here are the coverage details of the Comprehensive Plan for Volkswagen cars.
Theft of the insured car
Accidental damages to the insured car
Total loss (damages that are beyond repair)
Losses due to natural/man-made disasters (floods, strikes, etc.)
Losses due to explosion/fire
Damages to third-party property
Injury to the third party
Death of the third party
Please note, it is mandatory to purchase the Personal Accident (PA) cover. You can buy the cover during Volkswagen car insurance renewal or while buying the policy. Also, the PA cover has to be purchased separately as it does not come bundled either with the Third-party Plan or Comprehensive Plan.
The Comprehensive Insurance Plan will not cover liabilities under the following situations.
Damage to the insured car when driving in an inebriated state
Damage to the insured vehicle when driving without valid documents (Driving License, Insurance Certificate, etc.)
Losses arising due to mechanical/electrical issues
Illegal racing or reckless driving
Losses/damages incurred outside the geographical limits
Losses or damages arising due to usual wear and tear

You can raise a claim request at ACKO without any physical forms or documents. You will only need a few essential soft copies of the following documents.
A soft copy of your Volkswagen policy document will be needed at the time of requesting a claim online.
You will need a soft copy of your Volkswagen vehicle’s Registration Certificate (RC) while raising a claim.
A soft copy of your Driving Licence (DL) will also be required to raise a claim on Volkswagen car insurance.
When your claim request involves third-party liability or vehicle theft, you will need a soft copy of the First Information Report (FIR). This is why you must file a report of the incident at the local Police Station and obtain a copy of the FIR for an insurance claim request.
Instead of claiming beforehand, you can request a reimbursement for any repair done on your insured vehicle. To go ahead with a reimbursement claim, you will need the repair payment receipts from the repair centre where you got your car repaired.
The calculation of the Volkswagen car insurance premium involves several factors. ACKO uses proprietary algorithms to provide you with a correct estimate of the Volkswagen insurance rate based on your needs. Below are the major parameters involved in the calculation of Volkswagen car insurance premium.
The make, model and variant of your Volkswagen car play a major role in the calculation of car insurance premium. It is due to the fact that the repair costs differ for different car models and variants of a brand.
The cost of vehicle insurance also depends widely on the type of policy you choose. The price and coverages change from policy to policy. For example, a Comprehensive Insurance Plan offers more coverage than a Third-party Insurance Plan. Hence, a Comprehensive Policy costs more than a Third-party Insurance Policy.
The advantage of a Comprehensive Insurance Policy is that you can extend its coverage with add-ons. These add-ons may include Zero Depreciation Cover, Consumables Cover, Engine Protection Cover, etc. With each add-on cover, the premium of an insurance plan grows accordingly.
The latest market value of a car is identified as the Insured Declared Value or IDV. This value defines the amount you can receive as claim settlement in case of theft or total loss of your Volkswagen car. Thus, vehicles with high IDV tend to increase the policy premium.
It is mandatory by law for every vehicle owner to purchase the PA cover. The Personal Accident Cover doesn’t come included in an insurance plan. Hence, you must purchase it separately when buying Volkswagen car insurance. The role of the PA cover is to offer financially protect the policyholder against accidental permanent/temporary disability or death.
There may be special occasions and festive seasons when you may receive discounts on policy premiums from ACKO.
Once the Volkswagen car insurance premium is calculated, a standard GST of 18% is applied.
