Bike Insurance Policy

The prices of two-wheeler vehicles in India increased during the financial year 2020-2021 due to the change in government policies and taxes.

What Do We Understand By The Term Two-wheeler Insurance?

The prices of two-wheeler vehicles in India increased during the financial year 2020-2021 due to the change in government policies and taxes. However, on the other hand, the demand and sales for the vehicles too increased in this phase. This is ironic but depicts the true picture of the present needs of the middle-class Indian people.

The term two-wheeler insurance means getting your two-wheeler insured against any type of damage or risk, from the best insurance company amongst all the service providers of the insurance sector.

As same as a helmet protects your head from getting damaged during an unforeseen event, a two-wheeler insurance policy provides you financial protection against all the financial losses suffered due to unfortunate events such as accidents, natural or man-made disasters, theft, or any other incident.

In the above-mentioned cases, the service provider company compensates you or provides a cashless service covering the risks under the two-wheeler insurance policy. Therefore, it is essential not only to purchase an insurance policy but also to renew it timely, to get a cover against tribulation and hardship.

What Do We Understand By The Term Bike Insurance, And Why It Is Necessary?

Two-wheelers consist of all the vehicles which ride on two wheels. So, two-wheeler vehicles mainly include bikes and scooters. The term bike insurance means an insurance policy that financially protects your bike or scooter against unforeseen events.

Because of the millions of vehicles traveling on the roads of our country at the same time 24*7, it is obvious that accidents will happen. Therefore, the government of India has made it mandatory to carry an insurance policy when you are running your vehicles on the roads.

The latest Motor Vehicle Act (2019) states that you have to pay a penalty of Rs2000 in the absence of carrying a two-wheeler third-party insurance policy, and your license could also be sized if you repeat this unlawful practice.

Furthermore, an insurance policy not only helps you reduce the financial burden but is also a companion on your journey. In shorter words, it protects an asset that is high-priced and of uncalculated worth to you.

What Are The Different Types Of Two-wheeler Insurance Policies We Offer You?

Comprehensive Insurance Policy

This policy offers round-off coverage. If anyone is searching for a 360 degree cover for his vehicle, then he should go for a comprehensive insurance policy that provides securities against any risk not just for a two-wheeler but also for the owner’s body. T

his policy automatically includes all the two-wheeler 3rd party insurance liabilities as well as standalone insurance liabilities. Risks against unforeseen events such as accidents, theft, fire, injuries, or damage caused due to natural (earthquakes, floods, cyclones, hurricanes, and landslides) or manmade disasters (burglary, riot, or strike), are completely covered under this policy.

It is always suggested to have all-around coverage for your vehicle through a comprehensive plan because this is the best two-wheeler insurance policy.

Third-Party Liability Coverage Insurance Policy

The third-party policy offers you the minimum coverage that every two-wheeler owner has to fulfill due to the obligation of law in our country. The name of the ‘Two-wheeler Third-Party Liability Coverage Insurance Policy’ comes from the fact that it only provides benefits, not to the insured, but any third party involved in the unfortunate happenings.

This covers injuries, suffered damages, disabilities, or death caused due to an accident, natural disaster, or theft involving the insured person’s two-wheeler. The third-party insurance policy also covers legal and financial liabilities of any damage to the property of a third party caused because of the vehicle of the owner or the insured person.

Standalone Own Damage Cover Insurance Policy

Standalone Own Damage cover insurance policy includes all the financial losses and damages caused to your two-wheeler vehicle in case of a collision or an accident. This cover is your one-stop-shop for damage compensation if your two-wheeler has suffered from damages due to any natural calamity such as floods, earthquakes, landslides, etc.

Also, if your bike or scooter gets stolen by somebody, the Standalone Own Damage Coverage will help you gather compensation for the same. Earlier, Own Damage Cover was a bundled offering with Third-Party Liability coverage. However, from 1st September 2019 onwards (when the new Motor Vehicle Act, 2019 came into force), this is no longer the case anymore. You had to purchase it separately.

This policy also does not cover the value of depreciation, electrical or mechanical breakdown, or damages due to drunken driving, etc. However, you are totally free to choose amongst the add-ons you want to include in your standalone policy anytime, as per your requirements and wish.

The benefit of personal accident cover

our two-wheeler comprehensive insurance policy provides risk coverage for the injuries caused due to an accident, to the registered owner.

Due to the presence of these above-mentioned add-ons, the comprehensive insurance policy is doubtlessly the best two-wheeler insurance policy which we can suggest to you.

How The Two-wheeler Insurance Policy Premium Of Your Selected Plan Is Calculated?

Various factors affect the premium calculation of a bike insurance policy. We are disclosing these factors briefly, one by one:-

Age of the person going to be insured

It is assumed that the risk owned while riding is more amongst young riders. Hence, if your age is less then you have to pay more amount as a premium. And, middle-aged or older people have to pay fewer amounts as a premium for their two-wheeler insurance.

Age of the vehicle

Technically, the age of the vehicle is inversely proportional to the IDV of the two-wheeler. The lower the IDV of your vehicle will be, the lower you have to pay the amount of premium to buy an insurance policy.

IDV of the two-wheeler

IDV means insured declared value. We estimate your vehicle's IDV at the market price at the time you purchase a policy. It is simple that if the market price of your bike is low then the estimated IDV will also be on the lesser side. Low IDV’s attract lesser premium amounts. On the other hand, high market value leads to higher IDV and attracts a higher premium amount.

Make and model of the two-wheeler

If your two-wheeler is of a lower-priced model and lower variant then the premium will also be on a lower side. The insurance service provider has to pay money for the replacements and repairs of the damaged vehicle. This value increases and decreases according to the variant and model, the higher amount of model will attract the higher repair and replacement amount. Therefore the amount of premium you have to pay changes because of the make and model of your two-wheeler.

Coverage

this is the foremost and the most obvious factor which affects the calculation of the premium. Suppose you are purchasing third-party insurance instead of a comprehensive plan, then the premium calculated for your policy will be less as compared to a comprehensive insurance plan’s premium.

Security systems

If you have installed any type of security system device in your bike (such as an Anti-Theft device), then the insurance company gives you some leverage on the amount of insurance premium. The presence of any security systems in your bike attracts a lesser premium.

Location and area

The premium amount is directly proportional to the level of risk involved while riding the bike. Urban areas are prone to risk due to the presence of a large number of vehicles; therefore attract a higher premium than rural or remote areas. 

No claim Bonus

this is a type of reward given to the insured, for every year that passes without filing a claim. No claim bonus simply means a direct deduction is given to you on the amount of your next year’s premium if you haven’t filed a claim the previous year.

How To File A Two-wheeler Insurance Claim?

Up till now, we all know that why it is necessary to purchase a third-party insurance policy. We also know the importance of claim settlement because this is the prime reason due to which we purchase the insurance policy in the very first place.

So, in this section, we will tell you the process of how you can file a two-wheeler insurance claim if anything bad happens. We will go through the proper steps and the selected routes of the claim settlement.

Steps

After the event of an accident or if your two-wheeler has been stolen by someone, or after any other unforeseen event, you are required to register an FIR at the nearest police station from the scene of the crime or accident. This is a type of legal documentation which you have to show as proof of the incident.

You can take your vehicle to the nearest garage amongst the selected network of garages of the insurance provider company. At that authorized service center, a professional will assess the damage suffered by your two-wheeler. He will prepare a monetary report of the loss and will pass it on to the company.

After the accident, if a policyholder takes his/her two-wheeler to a garage that comes under the list of selected garage networks authorized by the insurance provider company, then he/she can avail the benefit of a cashless service.

All the repair work to be done due to the damage caused by an accident will be cashless there. It means there is no need for the vehicle owner to bear the number of expenses for the repair work; the company will directly settle the amount with the network garage.

If in case, the policyholder couldn’t take his vehicle to a garage which is an authorized center and falls under the list of network garages, due to any reason such as location, time, the was or emergency; in that case, the claim settlement route will be ‘reimbursement’. This means the garage manager will produce a document showing the estimated damage figures and details of your vehicle and the policyholder will submit that file to the insurance company’s office.

Afterward, a surveyor from the company will visit that garage to check and match the details physically. Then the company will reimburse the amount to the policyholder, but at first, he had to pay for the expenses of the repair work.

Due to the presence of millions of vehicles on busy roads of India, accidents are bound to happen one or another time. And, that can lead to significant financial losses and damages. The general public prefers bikes and scooters, or any other two-wheelers as the preferred mode of transportation in India.

Therefore, the cases of accidents or thefts are also on a rise for the same vehicles. So, in this section, we will showcase to you the documents which a policyholder needs to produce to file a bike insurance claim. This will help owners to get compensation for the damages and losses incurred.

The List Of The Required Documents To File A Claim For Your Two-wheeler Is As Follows:-

In Case The Event Is An Accident

  • Copy of insurance policy
  • Copy of First Information Report filed after the accident (FIR)
  • Copy of registration certificate (RC)
  • Copy of Driving License (DL)
  • Form of the claim, duly signed and filled by the policyholder
  • The claim form, duly filled and signed
  • Original tax receipts for verification
  • Estimate of the vehicle’s repair cost
  • Payment receipts and bills (after the completion of the repair work)
  • Claims Discharge cum Satisfaction Voucher signed with a revenue stamp (if the claim amount is to be given directly to the repairer)

In Case The Event Is Theft

  • Name of the policyholder, policy number, policy term, and any other information required from the previous insurance plan
  • The original insurance policy document and a copy of the same
  • Original Registration Certificate (RC) and a copy of the same
  • A copy of the First Information Report (FIR)
  • Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC)
  • A copy of the Final police report

  • The letter of subrogation
  • The theft declaration was authenticated from the concerned RTO (Regional Transport Office)
  • Official intimation letter to the RTO (in which policyholder intimates the officials about the discontinued usage of the two-wheeler)

So, these were the two-wheeler insurance policy claim documents that are required to be gathered if a policyholder wants to file a claim.

We believe in not hiding any facts and figures from our present and prospective customers, and this is why SIBPL is one of the top insurance broking companies in India. The below-mentioned are some of the things which our policies do not provide a cover for:-

Damages happened while driving without a license:- Suppose you are riding your bike without a license and an accident happens all of a sudden. The damage caused during this type of accident will not be covered and compensated according to the rules of the insurance policy.

Destructions caused due to negligent:- negligent behavior such as driving through a waterlogged lane or jumping your vehicle from height, will not be entertained in any case.

Drunk and drive:- if you are riding your two-wheeler after the consumption of alcohol or any other kind of drug, and you get banged. Then, the company is not responsible for such childish behavior and will not compensate for the losses in any case.

Standard and everyday wear and tear:- Electrical or mechanical breakdown or wear and tear of two-wheeler’s parts because of aging is not covered in the policy. Therefore, the insurance provider will not pay for these everyday small or big repair works.

Compulsory deductibles of claim:- this is that fixed amount that gets deducted at the time company processes a claim. According to insurance mandatory rules, compulsory deductibles have to be borne by the customer only.

Destructions caused due to war:- wars such as nuclear or chemical, national or international, are generally not covered in the insurance policy, Hence, the damages done due to these happenings are not compensated by the insurance company.

No requisite add-on cover:- some types of damages and risk covers are purchased with the add-ons. This means, no add-ons no compensation. If your policy doesn’t have added benefits then the insurance company will not pay you for those damages.

Increase the voluntary deductibles:- the voluntary deductible is the amount you agree to pay from your pocket, during the process of claim. The higher you agree to pay this amount the lesser the premium you have to pay.
