Understanding Bajaj Insurance
Must-know Coverage for Your Bajaj Bike
You can get following kinds of insurance policies for your Bajaj Bike:
|Third-Party Bike Insurance||Comprehensive Bike Insurance|
|Only covers third-party injuries and damages, and not to your own vehicle.||Gives third-party policy + coverage for losses and damages to your own bike.|
|Mandatory by Indian Motors Act.||It’s not mandatory to buy coverage for your own bike’s damages, but then we all know the state of Indian roads. And, who doesn’t love their Bajaj bike?|
|Multi-year insurance available||Multi-year insurance available|
Why you should insure your Bajaj bike?
Bajaj bikes are great on Indian roads, which is why there are so many of them. But with a two-wheeler insurance, you can:
- Be sure that you’re rightfully compensated if your Bajaj bike was stolen or damaged beyond repairs.
- Get coverage for a third-party if your bike caused an accident and the third-party was injured or their property damaged.
- Get comprehensive coverage for your own two-wheeler, in case damages were caused to your vehicle.
- Be sure that no traffic policeman heavily fines you for not having an insurance policy for your bike. Strictly, say no to bribery!
Good-to-Have Insurance Add-ons for Bajaj Bikes
Zero Depreciation Cover:
Irrespective of the model of Bajaj bike you have, depreciation is applicable on all kinds of metal, plastic, and fiber glass parts. In case of repairs / replacement claims, you would have to pay for the depreciation cost. However, with zero depreciation add-on, you can get that covered.
Return to Invoice Cover:
So that if your bike was stolen or completely damaged, the claim settlement amount from the insurance company is not as little as the current market value of your bike. Instead, it is as much as the invoice value of your bike. This is even when in case your bike was two years old, with a 20 percent lower current market value.
A lot of insurance companies offer specific add-on coverage at an addition premium cost. Depending on the model of Bajaj bike you have, do enquire with your insurer about these coverage options. Key replacement, roadside assistance, personal accident cover of passengers could be a few such options.
Things a Two Wheeler Insurance Covers For Any Bajaj Bike
- Personal accident coverage for owner-driver
- Accident-related damages to your bike
- Damages caused during a natural calamity like flood or storm
- Loss because of fire, explosions
- Compensation for Stolen Bike
Things a Two Wheeler Insurance Does Not Cover For Any Bajaj Bike
- Wear and tear caused over the years [including flat tyres]
- Losses caused when the bike was driven without a driving license
- Damages caused when the bike was being driven under the influence of alcohol
- Driving outside the geographical limits
- If the bike is used for anything beyond it’s legal purpose [racing, illegal activities, organized crime]
Questions you might ask about Insurance
How can I renew my Bajaj Insurance online?
Your Bajaj Insurance Policy can be renewed online very seamlessly through your insurer’s online portal or your broker’s portal.
- If you have already selected an insurance company you can go to the insurer’s portal and renew it online by filling in the details.
- All you need to fill are your bike details (like Vehicle Registration Number, Engine/Chasis Number), your previous insurance details and your contact details. Once done, you can then renew the policy online by paying via netbanking, wallet or credit/debit card.
- Also, it is not necessary to continue your insurance policy with the same insurance company as the previous year. You can easily purchase insurance policy from a different insurer, as long as you are aware of the benefits and features being offered.
No. Inspection is not mandatory even if the insurance for your bike has already expired. It is sometimes done at the discretion of the insurer but only if the insurance has lapsed for more than 6 months or so.
Is an online insurance policy valid for two-wheelers?
Of course it is valid. You get a valid bike insurance policy by renewing the policy online. All you need to do is fill in your previous policy bike details and get a valid insurance policy emailed to your registered email id. A printout of that would suffice.
Single-year or Mutli-year: what’s better in case of Bajaj insurance?
Multi-year is always better as you get a better rate and your insurance policy is valid for 2 to 3 years. Thus, there is no renewal headache every year. Also, since you pay upfront, there is a huge discount on the premium.
How do I get no-claim bonus at the time of renewal?
If you have not claimed in the preceding year, then you can avail a No-Claim Bonus at the time of your next renewal. Keep one thing in mind: your bike insurance renewal has to happen before the previous policy expires. At the time of renewal of your Two-Wheeler Insurance Policy, you need to mention your last NCB and whether you have made any claim in the last year or not. You get discount on the own-damage premium as per the NCB grid provided by IRDA.
|All vehicle Type NCB Grid||% of discount on own damage premium|
|No Claim in the last 1 year||20%|
|No Claim in the last 2 consecutive years||25%|
|No Claim in the last 3 consecutive years||35%|
|No Claim in the last 4 consecutive years||45%|
|No Claim in the last 5 consecutive years||50%|
How much more do I need to pay for comprehensive two wheeler insurance?
The premium for a simple third party only insurance is fixed by the IRDAI. A comprehensive insurance policy includes own-damage premium too. The own-damage premium varies slightly from one insurance company to another and is dependent on a lot of factors, including your claims history and the age of your bike. The overall premium for comprehensive insurance is marginally higher, but highly recommended if you are looking for complete coverage for your Bajaj bike.
