Here's How to Save Money on your Two Wheeler Insurance

  • Automobile Association of India: If you’re a member of the Automobile Association of India, approved by IRDAI, you are eligible for a discount of up to 2.5% on own-damage premium.

  • Anti Theft Device: If you install an anti-theft device on your bike, as approved by IRDAI, you get an additional 2.5% discount.

  • Voluntary Deductible Discount: If you decide to pay the minimum amount of money at the time of claim, the insurer offers a discount on the own-damage premium. The advantage is that if there’s no claim, you pay no extra cost and still save money by opting voluntary discount.

Voluntary Deductible (Rs.)Discount
5005% on the OD premium of the vehicle, subject to a maximum of Rs 50/-
75010% on the OD premium of the vehicle, subject to a maximum of Rs 75/-
100015% on the OD premium of the vehicle, subject to a maximum of Rs 125/-
150020% on the OD premium of the vehicle, subject to a maximum of Rs 200/-
  • No Claim Bonus: it is a discount on the premium of two wheeler comprehensive policy offered by every insurer for every claim-free year. For a first claim-free year, you get 20% discount on the own damage premium for the next year. It’s cumulative and thus, keep on increasing as with the number of claim-free years. This discount can go up to a maximum of 50% discount for consecutive 5 claim-free years.

  • Save Money: You save money on the third-party premium when you buy a long-term/multi-year policy. IRDAI changes the third-party policy premium every year, and there’s a price hike every year. But with a long-term policy, you lock the third-party premium for 3 years.

  • Engine CC: The higher the engine cubic capacity (CC) of two wheeler, the higher is the premium. Be ready to shell out money Royal Enfield riders!

  • Bike Make and Model: The more high-end the bike, the higher is the bike insurance premium you need to pay. That means you, Harley Davidson and Ninja owners!

  • Year of Manufacture: Since rate of depreciation increases with age, older bikes have lower Insured Declared Value (IDV). And thus, lower premiums and vice versa.

Don't Pay a Penny for Garage Bills at the time of claim

Go for a Zero Depreciation add-on cover for your two wheeler and stay absolutely worry-free

Zero or Nil Depreciation Cover

At the time of claim, the two wheeler insurance company does not pay the depreciable cost. Depreciable bike parts such as rubber, plastic, metal are not fully covered. The depreciable cost is deducted at the time of claim repair. And this must be borne by the policyholder.

But with the help of two wheeler zero depreciation add-on cover, you stay covered. You save money even on those depreciable parts at the time of claim repair. Because of this add-on cover, the insurance company pays the full amount of repair and/or replacement at the time of claim. Except tyre(s) and tube(s).

What is Multi Year Two Wheeler Insurance?

General two wheeler insurance plans are designed for one year and have to be renewed annually. However, a multi year two wheeler insurance policy is unique. This policy allows two wheelers to be insured up to three years consecutively at one time.

Policyholders don't have to renew the insurance contract each year. This is because they receive a policy certificate for a maximum of three years cover.

Benefits of multi year two wheeler insurance plan:

Save up to 20–40% upfront on premium

IRDA hikes the third-party liability portion of the premium by up to 20% each year. Multiyear insurance saves you against the hike of third-party premium and service tax.

Eliminates the hassle of yearly renewal

Renewing your policy once for three continuous years is stress-free as compared to renewing your two wheeler insurance policy annually.

Protection for long-term

Ride safely and happily by enjoying long-term financial protection of your vehicle for three years. Also, you receive one policy document that is valid for three years.

Easy cancellation of policy

Insurers make the multiyear insurance policy cancellation easier. In a single year plan, if you make a claim in case of theft/loss, you are not eligible for refund.

Lucrative discounts offered

At times, insurance companies offer upfront discounts on multi-year two wheeler insurance policies.
This helps you save on your premiums.

Better No-Claim Bonus advantage

If you are eligible for 25% NCB, it’s applied on the premium of all 3 years. In single year policy, you lose the 25% with one claim. But, in multiyear plan, the 25% is locked for you.

FAQs on Two wheeler insurance

What’s not included in your Two wheeler Insurance Cover?

A third party liabilty insurance cover is clearly limited. But there are some scenarios where even a comprehensive bike insurance policy with add-ons can't help:

  • Damages when the policy is not active.
  • Damages when the driver/owner is breaking the law. (Always carry your license, follow traffic rules and NEVER EVER drink and drive!)
  • Damages due to oil leakage.
  • Damages when you don't follow manufacturer's guidelines. (Not a good idea.)
  • Gradual wear and tear. (Because everything grows old!)

How do you compare plans before choosing one?

We all know that too many options usually implies too much confusion. That is why, before choosing, one must compare plans on the basis of:

  • Insurance Company: Check the company’s past records for the number of claims settled and the time taken to settle them. That's always a great measure.
  • Premium and Coverage: Balance between the premium you are willing to pay and the coverage that you will actually end up needing. Also, don't forget to include add-ons.
  • Cashless Garage Network: Be sure about the insurer’s network garages in your area. You must remember that you can avail cashless services only at these garages, so that's always tricky.

What are the documents required to register a claim?

The sole purpose of buying insurance for your two-wheeler is to get adequately compensated for any damages and losses. To ensure that you raise a successful claim, it’s necessary to keep all the relevant documents at hand. While insurance companies try their best to avoid pesky paperwork, here is a list of documents you need to have on you:

  • The copy of the Registration Certificate & Tax Receipt of your bike.
  • The proof of valid insurance document.
  • Copy of your Motor Driving License
  • Copy of FIR/Panchanama in case of Theft or Third Party damage/death/bodily injury.
  • Repair Bills and Payment Receipts in case of reimbursement. That sounds about right?
