What is bike insurance?

Bike insurance or two-wheeler insurance is an insurance policy that covers you against damages to your two-wheeler due to accidents, natural/man-made disasters, fire, and theft. The policy also provides coverage against bike-related third-party liabilities such as damage to another person’s vehicle/property or injuries/death of a third party. You can buy insurance for 2 wheelers to cover motorcycles, scooters, mopeds, etc.

Why do you need a bike insurance policy?

You need a 2 wheeler insurance policy to protect yourself against financial losses arising due to damage to your bike or third-party property/life. Here are the reasons why you should buy insurance for bikes/scooters in India.

Mandatory as per law

Riding your two-wheeler on roads without valid two wheeler insurance is illegal in India. You may be penalised by the authorities or even face imprisonment if you do so. As per The Motor Vehicles Act, every motor vehicle owner should possess at least Third-party Bike Insurance. It covers only third-party liabilities and not damages/losses to your two-wheeler.

Provides financial coverage

Chaotic roads with vehicles moving in all directions are familiar sights in India. Such situations pose a high risk of accidents resulting in vehicle damage and loss of life. Such incidents can hurt you financially. But if you buy insurance for bikes/scooters (Comprehensive Bike Insurance Policy), the insurer will take care of the majority of the repair bill and also provides medical aid in case of severe injuries (if you have purchased the PA cover).

Third-party liability cover

The third-party cover protects you against any financial or legal obligations arising from accidents that cause damage to the vehicle/property of a third party or injuries/death to/of a third party. If your vehicle causes damages/losses to a third-party property/life, Third-party Bike Insurance takes care of financial compensation and legal process.

Coverage against natural calamities

You can control things like how you ride the vehicle on the road, but natural disasters are out of control. They can cause significant damage to your two-wheeler. For instance, flooding can damage the bike’s components to a point where it is irreparable. In such situations, a Comprehensive Bike Insurance Plan comes to your rescue as it provides coverage against vehicle damages.

Theft/loss coverage

Vehicle theft is one of the worst nightmares for a two-wheeler owner. In such situations, you are unsure about whether you can trace the missing vehicle or not. If the concerned authorities cannot track your vehicle, you are in for a significant financial loss. But, if you buy insurance for bikes/scooters (Comprehensive Two wheeler Insurance Policy), you will be compensated for the loss if the stolen vehicle is not found.

Personal Accident cover

Insurance coverage only for your two-wheeler is not enough as the chances of you getting injured in an accident are very high. That’s the reason why the PA cover is mandatory in India. It covers you against permanent disabilities and death caused while riding your bike or scooter. But note that it is not bundled with the bike policy. You have to purchase it separately while buying insurance for bikes.

Types of bike insurance plans available at ACKO

There are mainly two types of two wheeler insurance plans in India, and we offer both of them. Apart from that, you can also purchase the mandatory PA cover from our website/app. Here are more details regarding the bike insurance types at ACKO.

1. Third-party Bike Insurance Plan

Third-party Bike Insurance Policy is mandated by law in India. It provides coverage against third-party liabilities. In other words, the policy provides financial protection if your vehicle damages another person’s vehicle/property or causes injury/death to a third party in an accident. But third-party insurance for bikes/scooters does not cover damage/loss to your two-wheeler.

2. Comprehensive Bike Insurance Plan

Comprehensive Bike Insurance provides all the coverage offered by the Third-party Plan and also covers damages/losses incurred by your two-wheeler. This type of insurance for bikes covers events such as accidental damages, fire damages, natural disasters (floods, earthquakes, etc.), man-made calamities (riots) and theft of the insured bike.

3. Personal Accident (PA) Cover

This might technically not qualify as a type of plan but it is an essential cover. Similar to the third-party policy, the Personal Accident cover is mandatory as per law. While the insurance for bike provides coverage against your vehicle, the PA cover offers financial protection against events such as disability/death due to an accident while riding your bike or scooter.

Third-party bike insurance vs Comprehensive bike insurance

The following table will give you a better understanding about third-party vs comprehensive bike insurance.

Coverage Third-party Plan Comprehensive Plan

How to choose the right two-wheeler insurance policy

To choose the right insurance policy for your vehicle, you need to know the basics of bike insurance. Because when you are looking to buy insurance for bikes online, you end up coming across so many options. Hence, choosing the right policy becomes a challenge with so many options at your disposal. Here are a few points that you should be aware of to pick the right vehicle insurance for your bike/scooter.

icon

Correct IDV

Insured Declared Value is the approximate value of your two-wheeler, and it plays a vital role in the insurance premium. It is also the compensation you receive if your bike/scooter is lost or stolen. Whether you buy insurance for a new bike or an old two-wheeler, choosing the right IDV becomes crucial.

icon

Compare quotes

One of the significant advantages of buying 2 wheeler insurance online is the ability to compare different policies and premium quotes. You can visit the websites of different insurers and compare the premium. The best policy would be the one that provides maximum coverage, relevant features, and apt services at a lower premium.

icon

Check the coverage

An ideal bike insurance policy should be able to cover you against a variety of events, and that's what you pay for! So, always check the plan's coverage by going through the respective policy wording before finalising the purchase decision.

icon

After-sales service

Apart from coverage and claims, the after-sales service is an essential factor while choosing a 2 wheeler policy. Check the claim procedure, service benefits, bike claim settlement ratio and the reviews on the internet before freezing in on an online two wheeler insurance provider. Don't just go by the premium and coverage because the quality of service you get after you buy the policy often defines the actual benefit of the policy.

Documents required to avail bike insurance online

You need not submit any documents to buy two wheeler insurance online from our website/app. All you have to do is provide a few basic details of your two-wheeler. Here are the details you need to have handy while buying/renewing insurance for bikes from us.

Things to know while buying insurance for bikes

Buying a two-wheeler insurance plan for your scooter or bike can be tricky, especially if you are doing it for the first time. However, with a proper understanding and knowledge of basic things related to India's insurance rules and regulations, you can choose the best 2 wheeler policy. Here are a few things you should know when shopping for 2 wheeler insurance.

1. Why is it mandatory to buy an insurance policy for bikes/scooters in India?

According to a report from NCRB (National Crime Records Bureau), 43.6% of road accident victims in 2020 were two-wheeler riders. That's mainly because of the high number of two-wheelers plying on Indian roads. It is one of the main reasons why the Third-party Bike Insurance Policy is made mandatory as per The Motor Vehicles Act. The law mandated policy covers damages and losses resulting from road accidents.

2. How can mandatory Third-party Insurance be helpful?

Safeguards third party: Accidents are bound to happen when several vehicles are on the road. Vehicles can be repaired, but what about the third party who is affected by such accidents.? That's when the Third-party Policy comes to the rescue. It covers the losses and damages suffered by third parties due to an accident caused by your vehicle.

Avoids legal complications: One of the aftermaths of an accident is handling the legal process. With a two wheeler insurance policy, your legal burden shall be reduced, thanks to the Third-party Policy.

3. Discounts

Did you know that you can avail of additional discounts on your two-wheeler policy premium by installing an anti-theft device in your vehicle? Yes, it is true!

- The insurers can offer you an additional discount if you have installed an ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) approved anti-theft device in your bike/scooter. 

- Such devices reduce theft risk; hence, you get a discount for the premium.

Factors affecting two-wheeler insurance premium

You may have noticed that the policy premium varies from one vehicle to another. Ever wondered why? That’s because several factors affect bike insurance premium calculation. Let’s have a look at the same. Note that only the vehicle’s make/model and engine capacity impact the Third-party Policy premium. The rest of the factors are only applicable to the Comprehensive Insurance premium.

icon

Type of coverage

The primary factor impacting the premium is the chosen coverage or the type of insurance plan. For example, a Third-party Policy is a lot cheaper than a Comprehensive Policy. Because the former covers only third-party liabilities and the latter covers third-party liabilities and Own Damage. Similarly, the premium will increase if you opt for any available add-on covers.

icon

Two-wheeler make/model and variant

The next significant factor that may alter the premium is your two-wheeler's make/model and variant. For instance, if you own a basic commuter bike, you pay less premium. On the other hand, a high-end motorcycle will attract a higher premium. That's because the higher the value of the insured bike, the higher the risk for the insurer. Hence, the premium goes up to cover the higher risk factor.

icon

IDV

Insured Declared Value or IDV plays a critical role in deciding a policy's premium. It is the approximate market value of a vehicle, and it is also the sum insured amount of the insurance policy. It is calculated after determining the value of your two-wheeler. So, if you own a premium vehicle, the IDV will be high, and the premium will increase. Note that it’s not your bike’s resale value.

icon

Age of the two-wheeler

The vehicle's age dictates its market value, and the market value is nothing but the IDV. Hence, a new two-wheeler has a higher IDV, and in turn, the premium is also on the higher side. Whereas an old bike/scooter's IDV is lower, the same applies to the premium. That's the reason why insuring a new vehicle costs more than insuring an old vehicle.

icon

NCB

No Claim Bonus or NCB is the discount you can avail of for not raising any claim in a policy year. The discount applies during the policy renewal, and the premium reduces depending on the percentage of discount you are eligible for. You can get up to a 50% discount on the premium (Own Damage component) for not raising any claims for five consecutive years. You can also transfer the NCB benefits if you switch to a new insurer.

icon

Vehicle's location

The geographical location where you ride the vehicle also plays a role in premium calculation. For instance, if you reside in a metro city, the risk of an accident is high. Hence, the premium will be on the higher side. On the other hand, the premium will be lesser in a tier-1 or tier-2 city where the risk factor decreases. Hence, your location also impacts the insurance premium.

How can you save on the two wheeler insurance premium?

Here are a few points that you can keep in mind to save on bike insurance premiums. Note that these tips are for purchasing a Comprehensive 2 Wheeler Insurance Policy.

icon

Choose the two-wheeler model wisely

Insuring a commuter motorcycle is cheaper than insuring a premium sports bike. That’s because the sports bike has a larger engine capacity and higher market value than the commuter model. So, it’s better to consider the long-term insurance costs while purchasing your new two-wheeler.

icon

Know your two-wheeler’s correct value

Knowing the correct market value of your bike/scooter can save you money. Sometimes the IDV may be higher than the actual value of your vehicle. In such scenarios, knowing the accurate value helps to decrease the insurance premium because the lesser the IDV, the lower the premium.

icon

Opt for Voluntary Deductible

Voluntary Deductible refers to the amount you agree to pay out of your pocket during a claim. You can increase the percentage of Voluntary Deductible if you are confident enough that you are not going to raise a claim during the policy tenure. Increasing the percentage of this component will decrease the premium.

icon

Use your NCB discount

Ensure that you utilise the NCB discount while renewing your policy. Even if you switch from one insurance provider to another, you can use the discount. You can get up to a 50% discount on the two-wheeler policy premium (Own Damage component) if you have not raised a single claim for five consecutive years.

icon

Renew the policy on time

Always make sure to renew the two wheeler insurance policy before the due date. You lose the NCB benefits if the policy is not renewed within 90 days of expiry. Hence, renewing the insurance plan on time can save you from paying higher premiums.

icon

Anti-theft devices

Insurers offer discounts on premiums if your vehicle has an ARAI certified anti-theft device. It reduces the risk of vehicle theft. Hence, the insurance provider will reward you for the same by reducing the premium.

Why should you renew expired bike Insurance immediately?

You should renew an expired bike insurance because it is as good as not buying a bike policy. That’s because an expired policy does not offer any coverage irrespective of the type of policy you had purchased. Be it a Third-party Two wheeler Policy or a Comprehensive 2 wheeler Plan; if it’s expired, you are vulnerable to financial losses due to damages to your vehicle and third-party liabilities.

Hence, it’s extremely crucial that you renew expired bike insurance immediately to avoid financial losses due to accidents and other unfortunate incidents. We recommend renewing the policy even before it expires to ensure seamless coverage. Buying a multi-year policy also helps in this regard as you need not renew the policy every year.

How to renew two-wheeler insurance for old bikes

You can renew two wheeler insurance for old bikes the same way you do for new vehicles. Purchasing the right insurance plan for our old two-wheeler is essential as older vehicles are prone to component failures, which may lead to an accident. Hence, insuring your old bike/scooter with an appropriate plan will cushion the financial losses you may incur due to unfortunate incidents during the ownership period. Here are the steps to renew your old bike insurance from us.

Step 1

Log onto our website or mobile app and provide details regarding your old two-wheeler and previous insurance policy (if available).

Step 2

Choose your preferred insurance policy and tenure and get the free two wheeler insurance quote.

Step 3

Pay the premium online and get your old bike insurance instantly.

Without a proper understanding of terminologies and jargon related to insurance, buying a two wheeler insurance plan might get complicated. However, the process of bike insurance purchase becomes a walk in the park if you have the basic knowledge about the terms associated with 2 wheeler insurance. Learn more about important two wheeler insurance terminologies and jargons.

icon

IDV (Insured Declared Value)

Insured Declared Value or IDV is the approximate market value of your two-wheeler. It is also the sum insured amount of the policy. That means if your vehicle suffers a total loss, the insurer will pay you the IDV (sum insured) amount. Hence, setting the correct IDV while purchasing the policy becomes crucial. For bikes/scooters older than 5 years, the policyholder and the insurance provider can come to a mutual agreement regarding the vehicle’s market value.

icon

Depreciation

Over time, the value of your two-wheeler decreases due to factors such as wear and tear, and regular use. An insurer accounts for the decrease in value when you raise a claim, and the insurance term for it is depreciation. So, when the insurer settles the claim, the depreciation value will be subtracted from the claim amount you receive. So, as the vehicle gets older, the depreciation increases.

icon

NCB (No Claim Bonus)

No Claim Bonus is a discount an insurer offers you for not making any claims in a policy year. In simple words, NCB is a reward for you being a safe rider. This discount can be availed during two wheeler insurance renewal, and it reduces the insurance premium.

For the first claim-free year, you are eligible for a 20% discount on the Own Damage component of the premium. The discount increases up to 50% if you have not raised a claim against your two wheeler policy for 5 consecutive years.

icon

Deductible

A deductible is a contribution made by the policyholder towards the claim amount. In simple words, it's the part of the repair bill that you need to pay from your pocket if you raise a claim against any damages. There are two types of deductibles: Compulsory and Voluntary.

The Compulsory Deductible is set by IRDAI (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India). A Voluntary Deductible is optional; you can opt for it to reduce the premium amount. It may be beneficial if you are a safe rider and the probability of you raising a claim is close to nil. Learn more on two wheeler insurance terminologies and jargons.

Setting it too low can reduce the premium, but the claim amount will be less in case of total loss. Similarly, setting it too high will increase the premium.

Questions you may have about bike insurance

Why should I buy two wheeler insurance for my bike?

You should buy Third-party Bike Insurance for your bike as it is mandated by law. It is illegal to ride a two-wheeler without the basic bike policy. You may attract penalties or face imprisonment if you ride the bike without a valid insurance policy. That's the reason why two wheeler insurance renewal on time is also crucial.

However, a Third-party Policy will only cover third-party liabilities. For coverage against damages to your two-wheeler, you may opt for the optional Comprehensive Two wheeler Insurance Policy. It provides a financial cushion if the two-wheeler gets damaged due to accidents and other unfortunate incidents like natural or man-made disasters or fire hazards. The policy even covers events such as vehicle theft.

What does endorsement mean in bike insurance, and what's the difference between premium and non-premium bearing endorsement?

The endorsement in motor insurance refers to making changes to the policyholder's personal details or the policy's terms and conditions. For instance, if you need to change your address, name, date of birth, etc., you can do it via endorsement in the policy.

In a premium bearing endorsement, you need to pay an additional premium, whereas, in a non-premium bearing endorsement, you need not pay any additional premium.

Which is the best bike insurance company in India, and which is the best two wheeler insurance policy to buy?

An insurer offering higher IDV at a lower premium, an easy and hassle-free buying/renewal process and transparent and quick claim settlements can be considered as one of the best two wheeler insurance companies in India. Also, look out for other factors such as customer support and value-added services such as cashless repairs and instant claim settlements for minor damages. As a generalisation, a Comprehensive Bike Insurance Policy can be considered as the best bike policy in India as it provides broad coverage, including third-party liabilities and own damage.

Does my bike's make/model and variant affect the two wheeler insurance premium?

Yes, your vehicle's make/model, variant and the purchase year affect the premium and the IDV.

How can I find out my 2 wheeler insurance policy number?

You can find out your bike insurance policy number via the following methods. You need to have the policy number handy when making bike insurance claims or renewing the policy. So, knowing the bike policy number is important.
