INSURANCE

What is Motor Insurance?

Motor insurance is just like any other insurance policy, but unlike other insurances, it is ‘Mandatory’! And, as the name suggests, it is an insurance that is related to all types of motor vehicles-motorcycles, cars, jeeps, commercial vehicles etc.

So, what are the different types of vehicle insurances in India based on the type of vehicle owned?

What’s Not Covered?

It’s true that a comprehensive car insurance gives your car 360-degree protection but here are some exceptions.

Driving Drunk

Any claims made in a situation where you were driving drunk won’t be considered. 

Driving without a License

You can’t make claims if you were driving without a valid driver’s license.  

Add-ons Not Bought

This is pretty obvious, isn’t it?  In case you haven’t bought a particular add-on you can’t claim for its benefits! 

Consequential Damages

Consequential damages are those that take place after the accident. Unless covered for in an add-on, such damages can’t be covered.  

Driving without a valid License Holder

In case you have a learner’s license, you should be driving with a valid license holder. Your car insurance won’t cover for you otherwise.  

Contributory Negligence

To simply put it, don’t do things you aren’t supposed to! For example; if there are floods in your city, don’t take the risk and take your car out. Listen to your manufacturer’s manual cause such negligences can’t be covered!
