What is Comprehensive Bike Insurance?

Comprehensive Bike Insurance offers complete coverage to bike owners. Even though premium rates are higher as compared to third-party insurance, comprehensive insurance offers coverage for a wide range of contingencies and unforeseen circumstances such as accident, theft, natural calamity, and man-made disasters. The insured stands to gain far more than the additional premium paid.

Chola - Benefits of comprehensive bike insurance

Benefits of comprehensive bike insurance are as follows

The policy also has a no-claim bonus where the insured gets a discount on renewal premium if there were no-claims in the previous policy year.

Protects your two-wheeler against theft, accident, natural calamities and various social perils like riots.

If the owner damages another individual’s property, the liability in such cases is covered.

Unlimited liability for third party personal damages such as death or injury to the other individual.

Financial aid in case of disablement or death due to accidents that occur while travelling in the vehicle.

Third-party bike insurance protects the driver from expenses of damages and injuries caused to another individual. Comprehensive bike insurance is a combination of third-party and own-damage bike insurance.

While third-party bike insurance only covers the cost owed to another party for the damages incurred because of the insured vehicle, comprehensive bike insurance covers damages caused to the Insured Vehicle as well as the third party.

Comprehensive bike insurance gives extensive coverage with the choice to opt for beneficial add-ons. Third-party bike insurance offers a limited coverage with only Personal Accident coverage.

In terms of the premium that is paid, comprehensive bike insurance costs more but comes with a wider-range of benefits.

Chola - Why buy bike insurance Content

Why buy bike insurance?

Many people tend to have very special memories attached to their two-wheelers. From long drives to even the routine quick trips, they play a very important part in our lives. So to make sure your bike is safe and secure, bike owners are advised to get two-wheeler insurance.

When you’re on the road with your bike, the exposure to risk is much higher than that of someone in a car. Hence, having a comprehensive bike insurance in place will help protect you from the financial burdens that may arise due to any potential road accidents or mishaps.

Having a motor-vehicle insurance is also mandatory for any vehicle to function on Indian roads, as per the Motor Vehicles Act 2019.

The law requires a driver/owner to have third-party insurance in place. The third-party coverage of two wheeler insurance protects you against liabilities towards a third party incase of an accident. This includes expenses that have to be paid for personal injuries and also property damage.

A comprehensive two-wheeler insurance plan, not only covers the required third-party coverage but also gives you the own-damage cover benefits. The own-damage cover takes care of all liabilities incurred due to theft, explosion, fire, burglary, man-made disasters (riots, strikes, etc.) and natural disasters such as floods, earthquakes, etc.

Comprehensive covers also come with the huge benefits of additional-cover. Paying an extra premium let’s you add more covers to your policy that protect your vehicle from a further range of risks. You can even avail certain discounts such as the No-Claim Bonus at the time of renewal. With a strong comprehensive cover in place you can get maximum coverage for your two-wheeler and worry less about the financial liabilities incase of a mishap.
