Broadly, you have two options while insuring your Ampere bike. You can either go for the minimalistic Third-party Two-wheeler Insurance or choose a wide-ranging Comprehensive Two-wheeler Insurance. In the minimalistic cover, the insurer will assist you in case your bike is involved in an incident where a third party is injured or their property is damaged, The damage to your Ampere bike is not covered in this policy. This is taken care of in the Comprehensive Cover.
The Comprehensive Cover includes the cover of the minimalistic plan and offers an Own Damage cover, which comes in handy in case the Ampere bike is damaged due to calamities, fire, vandalism, etc. Another benefit of choosing a Comprehensive Plan is that it allows you to opt for add-on covers. Such covers are great concerning specific coverages.
Every Ampere scooter insurance policy is governed by a set of inclusions. Simply put, if the reason for bike damage is mentioned in the list of inclusions stated in the Policy Wordings, the insurer will settle the claim. Here are some common inclusions of a Comprehensive Ampere Two-wheeler Insurance Plan.
The claim shall be honoured if the damage was done to a third-party person/property.
The claim shall be honoured if the damage was done to the insured bike due to natural calamities.
The claim shall be honoured if the damage was done to the insured bike due to vandalism, rioting, etc.
The claim shall be honoured if the damage was done to the insured bike due to fire.
The claim shall be honoured if the insured Ampere bike was stolen.
There are instances where the insurance company directly rejects the claim. Such instances are also mentioned in the Policy Wordings of the plan and fall under the exclusions section. Here’s an overview of the section.
Claim shall not be honoured if damage to the insured bike was done while the policy was expired.
Claim shall not be honoured if damage to the insured bike was done deliberately.
Claim shall not be honoured if proper rules were not followed.
Claim shall not be honoured if terms and conditions were violated.
Claim shall not be honoured in the case of Consequential Damages.
Add-ons are covers that offer specific insurance protection. You need to pay extra to include these add-ons in your Comprehensive Cover. These are not standalone policies. They can only be purchased with a Comprehensive Cover. Thus, if you are thinking of going for a combination of a Third-party Cover and an Add-on, it is not possible. Here are some popular add-ons available in the online market.
Zero Depreciation: Avoid depreciation calculation and receive a bigger claim amount.
No Claim Bonus Protect: Claim without affecting accumulated renewal bonus.
Invoice Protection Cover: In case of a total loss, the insurer shall offer the bike’s invoice amount.
Roadside Assistance: Handy for towing assistance if the bike breaks down.
Note that insurers might have different names for the add-ons and might charge different premiums for them. Their coverage might also differ. Therefore, make sure to check the features and pricing in detail before buying the add-ons. Also, do not go on a shopping spree concerning the add-ons; it will increase your final insurance bill to a great extent. Instead, select only those add-ons that you think will offer value for money.
While choosing an insurer, it is crucial to check the claim process offered. Merely enabling buying online insurance is not enough when it comes to convenience. The claim process also needs to be convenient and hurdle-free. That is why digital insurers offer a Cashless Claims Process. It is a process by which the insurer and the garage where the bike is repaired ensure bill settlement among themselves and you are not directly involved in the process. For you, the process is swift and hassle-free as the insurer and garage have a tie-up and the billing process is majorly sorted amongst themselves.
The other way to settle claims is to go by the Reimbursement Process. Here, you get the bike repaired, pay the bill to the garage, and then apply to the insurer to get the bill reimbursed. Compared to the Cashless Process, the Reimbursement Process is lengthy, tiresome, and inconvenient.
Here are the basic steps involved in raising a bike insurance claim:
Step 1: Apply for a claim by contacting the insurance company.
Step 2: Share policy details.
Step 3: Share details about why you want to raise a claim.
Step 4: Coordinate with the assigned claims officer.
Step 5: Choose either a Cashless or a Reimbursement Process and follow the instructions.
Step 6: Receive money in your bank account.
It depends upon you whether you want basic coverage, wide-ranging cover, or a wide-ranging cover with add-ons. The cost for each will increase, respectively. However, insurance policies are usually for a year. As you do not have to pay for ten years in advance, the insurance amount should not be that huge irrespective of the policy.
