What is car insurance?
A comprehensive car insurance policy, also known as motor package insurance, saves you money when your car is damaged in an accident or natural calamity. It also covers your vehicle against theft and burglary. At times, you may end up hurting others or damaging property in an accident. A car insurance policy covers such third party liabilities as well.
What are the different types of car insurance policies?
1 Private car package policy.
A comprehensive car insurance policy offers complete protection to you. It covers not only the costs incurred on damages to a third party but also the damages to your car. This policy type also covers car theft and damages caused by fire, burglary and natural disasters.
2 Stand-alone own-damage car insurance
With our stand-alone own-damage car insurance, you are covered for any accidental damages to your car. These could be due to natural disasters like earthquake, flood, cyclone, and landslide, or due to manmade disasters like theft, burglary, riot or strike. To buy this insurance, you should have an active third party insurance policy of the vehicle.
3 Third party car insurance
In this type of insurance policy, you are covered against legal liabilities arising out of an accident. If your car causes injuries to a third party or damages surrounding property, then we will take care of the expenses.
