Under the Motor Vehicles Act, it is mandatory for a vehicle owner to have valid vehicle insurance to drive a vehicle legally in India. In order to protect the owner of the vehicle and to provide a financial cushion in the event of an accident which causes bodily injury to a third party and the vehicle, vehicle insurance is a security blanket. To drive a vehicle, two or four-wheelers, on the road without an insurance cover is offensive and dangerous. The following vehicle insurance options are available for purchase by a vehicle owner per requirements.

Third-Party Liability: This kind of vehicle insurance is mandatory to purchase. This insurance policy covers the damages caused to the vehicle or injuries caused to any third person. Damages caused to a personal vehicle or injuries are not covered under this insurance cover.

Comprehensive Car Insurance: A comprehensive insurance policy shall cover the damages caused to any third party or own vehicle. Similarly, injuries caused to third-party persons and personal injuries are covered under this insurance policy.

In case of an accident, a motor insurance policy will protect you and your vehicle. To adapt the basic vehicle insurance policy to its needs and maximise benefits, a number of additional cover options are available.
