Bike insurance offers financial protection against accidental damages to an insured Hero Electric Photon. If you do not have bike insurance, you may have to pay for all these expenses from your own pocket. Apart from this, as per The Motor Vehicles Act of 1988, it is a must for all bike owners to have Third-party Bike Insurance. Being found without valid insurance may incur monetary penalties. Hence, buying bike insurance is crucial.
Third-party Bike Insurance is the most low-priced bike insurance currently on sale in ACKO. However, it covers only injury, death or property damage suffered by a third party. Accidental damages incurred by your insured electric scooter are not covered. That is why we recommend Comprehensive Bike Insurance. In this plan, you will get the mandatory Third-party Bike Insurance and an Own Damage bike insurance (OD) cover. So you are financially protected on both fronts.
Comprehensive Bike Insurance usually offers sufficient coverage for Hero Electric Photon scooters. Nonetheless, if you feel the coverage offered is inadequate, you can always choose add-ons to extend the plan’s coverage.
