In recent years, Hero Electric has launched a few electric two-wheelers in India. Apart from being eco-friendly, these two-wheelers are easy to ride, noiseless and even trendy. But before riding them on Indian roads, it is crucial to buy bike insurance to financially protect yourself from accidental damages to your vehicle. Read on to know more about Hero Electric bike insurance and why you should consider buying online bike insurance.
There are two insurance plan options for Hero Electric bikes, namely, Comprehensive Bike Insurance Plan and Third-party Bike Insurance Plan. A Third-party Bike Insurance Plan is the base plan applicable for all bikes and is mandated by law. It offers financial compensation in the event of accidental injury, death or property damage to a third party. However, it does not cover damages to the insured bike.
A Comprehensive Bike Insurance Plan offers wider coverage. It covers third-party liabilities as well as offers an Own Damage (OD) cover. Under OD cover, your bike will be financially protected against theft, accidental damages and natural and manmade disaster-caused damages. You also have the option of choosing add-ons to broaden the coverage of the plan.
Personal Accident (PA) cover offers financial protection against injuries, disability or death arising from accidents. It is also mandated by law to buy one. However, it has to be bought separately, as it is not an inclusion under a Comprehensive Bike Insurance Plan.
