Let’s get you started on your vehicle insurance journey!
Motor insurance, or vehicle insurance, is an insurance policy that offers coverage to the vehicle’s owner and/or driver against financial losses in case of losses due to theft, accidents or natural calamities. In return for the regular payment of premiums, your insurance provider promises to share the cost of repairing damages. Almost every Indian family today owns a vehicle. And, no matter how careful they are, something unfortunate might happen to them and their vehicle. After an accident, robbery or attempted theft, they might have to deal with high repair costs or have to replace their car entirely. With vehicle insurance, you won’t have to worry at all. Your motor insurance provider will help pay for all repairs or the cost of the car.
But, your motor insurance policy is useful in other scenarios as well. A vehicle insurance policy that also offers third-party liability cover ensures you don’t have to pay for damages caused to another person, their vehicle or their property either. In fact, third-party motor insurance is mandatory in India. If you do not have a vehicle insurance policy with third-party liability cover while driving, you could end up having to pay a hefty traffic fine.
At TATA AIG, you will find insurance policies that meet your every need. You can simply choose between our two-wheeler and four-wheeler motor insurance online and get your policy within a few moments. Our wide range of add-on covers allows you to personalise your plan based on your specific needs. If you want something quickly, simply opt for our comprehensive motor insurance policy for coverage against third-party liability and own damages!

A motor insurance policy helps take care of the cost of repairs for your vehicle. So, while it cannot help you grow your money, motor insurance is an important part of every good savings plan. You can rely on your vehicle insurance policy to help take care of the cost of repairs.
No-Claim Bonus (NCB)
A No Claim Bonus or NCB is a reward that your insurer provides you whenever you complete a policy year without making any claims against your vehicle insurance policy. The reward is a reduced premium for your motor insurance plan for the following year.
When you get your vehicle repaired at a network garage, you can enjoy a quick and easy cashless claims process against your motor insurance policy.
Protection Against Damages

Third-party liability provides the vehicle owner with cover in case another person or another individual’s property is harmed or damaged in an accident. The motor insurance policy will help cover the expenses for the third party. In India, you must have at least third-party vehicle insurance to operate your vehicle legally on the road.

Why Should I Buy a Vehicle Insurance Policy?
Protection from Third-Party Liability
Third-party liability becomes an issue when the insured vehicle accidentally damages a third-party vehicle or property or injures a third-party individual. Third-party vehicle insurance protects the policyholder from having to pay for repairs or hospital bills for the third party from their own pocket.
Security Against Theft
If your vehicle is vandalised or some of its parts are stolen, your motor insurance policy will help cover the financial damages and compensate you for the loss. Your vehicle insurance policy could help pay to replace the stolen parts or even the whole vehicle in case it is stolen or damaged beyond repair.
Financial Cover Against Damages
Even the safest driver might meet with a road accident. Getting a small dent fixed in your precious vehicle could set you back quite a bit. With own damage cover in your vehicle insurance, you don’t have to worry about the cost. A good motor insurance policy will help you take care of the cost of damage done to your vehicle, making the policy an integral part of your financial plan.
Cover Against Natural Calamities
Almost every day, we hear about a new natural disaster destroying property and claiming lives. If your vehicle happens to get damaged because of floods, earthquakes or other covered disasters, you won’t have to deal with the financial loss or burden. Your motor insurance policy will step in to alleviate your troubles.
Cover for Personal Injuries
An accident can damage more than just your vehicle. It could end up hurting you or other passengers in your vehicle. Depending on the motor insurance policy you choose, you can get financial help to deal with injuries that are the direct result of a road accident.
We Have the Right Plans to Protect Your Vehicle from All Kinds of Risk
Car Insurance Policies
Most Indian households today own one four-wheeler. Cars allow us to enjoy long road trips across the length and breadth of India and a car insurance policy will keep you protected. Car insurance, like motor insurance, comes in various forms and plans. You will need to decide which kind of four-wheeler motor insurance policy best suits your requirements based on how often you use your vehicle. It’s important to remember that car insurance policies only provide cover for a private vehicle. So, if you use the four-wheeler for business, you won’t benefit from this policy.
Bike Insurance Policies
The two-wheeler is the preferred mode of transport for most Indian families. Bike insurance policies provide cover to all kinds of two-wheelers, from gearless scooters to large-engine superbikes. A variety of plans are available. Some offer basic third-party cover, while others provide you with comprehensive cover. You should pick the two-wheeler insurance plan that best suits your unique requirements.
Commercial Vehicle Insurance Policies
Any vehicle that is used for business purposes must have commercial vehicle insurance. These plans are carefully formulated to protect your company’s finances in case of an accident or if the vehicle is damaged or stolen. Ideally, all commercial vehicles, such as taxis, goods carrying vehicles, cranes and tractors should have a good commercial vehicle insurance policy in the dashboard.
Types of Motor Insurance
Having your own vehicle makes it incredibly convenient to move from place to place. But, owning and using a vehicle also has inherent risks. It’s possible that you meet with an accident or somebody may try to steal or damage your prized possession on purpose. We offer a range of policies, so you can pick the one that best suits your risk and needs:
Third-Party Liability Only Motor Insurance Policy
Third-party liability only vehicle insurance policies are the most basic motor insurance policies. They protect you from the financial and legal liabilities that arise after an accident causes damage to a third party or their property. You must remember that a third-party liability only motor insurance policy will not cover any damages to your vehicle.
Own Damage Motor Insurance Policy
An own damage motor insurance policy provides coverage for financial losses caused due to accidental damage to your vehicle. These vehicle insurance policies are solely for your vehicle. They do not provide cover for damages caused to a third party, their vehicle or their property.
Comprehensive Motor Insurance Policy
A comprehensive vehicle insurance policy offers extensive coverage as compared to a basic third-party motor insurance policy. The comprehensive motor insurance policy offers protection against financial losses due to damage to your own car and third-party liabilities.
What’s Covered in TATA AIG Motor Insurance?
TATA AIG’s motor insurance policy provides cover against:
Theft of the Vehicle
If you opt for a comprehensive vehicle insurance policy, we will reimburse you the Insured Declared Value (IDV) of your vehicle if it gets stolen or is accidentally damaged beyond repair.
Natural Disaster Damages
If you have a comprehensive motor insurance policy or an own damage vehicle insurance policy, you can enjoy financial protection against any damages caused to your vehicle by a natural disaster such as a cyclone, earthquake, flood, snowfall, frost, or rainfall.
Man-Made Calamity and Fire Damages
An own damage or comprehensive motor insurance policy will offer financial protection against damages caused by terrorist attacks, strikes, riots and other malicious man-made calamities. Additionally, your vehicle insurance also provides cover for fire damages due to lightning, self-ignition and explosions.
After an accident, your vehicle may end up with a few scrapes and dents or may need extensive repairs. A comprehensive vehicle insurance policy or an own damage motor insurance policy provides coverage for these accidental damages.
At times, you may transport your vehicle from one location to another via waterways, roadways, airways or railways. In case the vehicle is damaged in transit, your comprehensive motor insurance policy will help take care of the cost of repairs.
Our motor insurance policies don’t just look after damage to your vehicle. We’ll also take care of third-party liability, which you need to legally operate your vehicles on Indian roads. If you happen to meet with an accident and another individual is hurt or their property is damaged, our motor insurance policy will help cover the expenses.
Personal Accident Cover
Your comprehensive vehicle insurance policy provides a Personal Accident Cover of INR 15 lakhs to the owners and/or drivers of the vehicle. If anything were to happen to the individual due to a vehicular accident, the cover helps take care of costs of treatment. If the accident ends up becoming fatal, the insured’s nominee or beneficiary receives the predetermined amount.
What’s Not Covered in TATA AIG Motor Insurance?
There Are A Few Things That We’re Unable To Help With. Here’s A Look At Some General Exclusions Under Our Motor Insurance Policies:
- Damages suffered after driving without a proper license
- If the vehicle is used outside the geographical area i.e. outside India
- Damages caused due to driving under influence of alcohol or drugs
- Ordinary wear and tear due to regular usage and depreciation

Factor Affecting Motor Insurance Premiums and How to Reduce It
There are a number of factors that decide what the premium of your motor insurance policy should be. Let’s take a look at what they are:
Insured Declared Value (IDV)
Insured Declared Value, or IDV, is the current market value of your vehicle. The IDV factors in depreciation to arrive at the appropriate figure. Your vehicle’s IDV is the maximum amount that your insurer will pay in case there is complete total loss to your vehicle. Your vehicle insurance premium is directly proportional to your IDV. A higher IDV means a higher motor insurance premium.
Age of the Vehicle
The age of the vehicle will affect your motor insurance premium. Typically, insurance premiums are higher for brand new cars and lower for older cars. This happens as the value of a vehicle depreciates every year, bringing the IDV and premium down with it.
The type of motor insurance policy that you opt for will affect your vehicle insurance premium. A comprehensive motor insurance plan will have a higher premium than a stand-alone own damage motor insurance policy or a third-party liability only policy. A comprehensive plan provides coverage to all parties involved, so it will have higher motor insurance premiums.
You can enhance your vehicle’s insurance coverage by opting for add-ons. Your motor insurance premium will increase depending on the number of add-ons you add to your vehicle insurance policy.
The vehicle’s engine’s cubic capacity (cc) will affect the motor insurance premium. Vehicles with a higher cubic capacity always attract higher motor insurance premiums. Every year, the IRDAI declares universal third-party vehicle insurance premium rates based on the cubic capacity of the insured vehicle.
A deductible is a percentage of the total claim amount that the insured individual offers to pay. The policyholder chooses the deductible at the time of purchasing the motor insurance policy. A higher deductible means you will pay a larger portion of the claim. Those who opt for high deductibles can enjoy lower premiums. However, it means the insured will have to pay a significant portion of every claim.
Individuals who have maintained a clean claim history can get an NCB from their insurer. The NCB lowers the policyholder’s premium as a reward for not making any claims. The NCB is a progressive discount and the amount increases every year. For five consecutive years without making any claims, individuals can enjoy a discount of up to 50% on their motor insurance renewal premium.
Other factors, such as the age of the applicant, make and model of the vehicle, security features available on the vehicle and location where the vehicle is registered can impact your motor insurance premium. Vehicles that have enhanced safety and security features will attract lower premiums than vehicles that lack these features.
If you’d like to reduce your premium slightly, there are a few things you can do, such as:
Opting for Mandatory Add-Ons Only
While many insurance providers offer a range of add-ons for enhanced protection, you don’t need to pay for all of them. Make sure you only select the add-ons that you require. For example, if you intend on using your vehicle just within city limits, you may not have to purchase a roadside assistance add-on. So, think very carefully about whether the add-on actually offers you enough value before adding it to your policy.
Installing Security Accessories
Insurance providers will likely reduce your premium if your vehicle is at less risk. So, a car that has anti-theft accessories installed will have a slightly lower premium than an identical car without the safety features. Make sure you purchase your anti-theft devices from authorised dealers only to enjoy a discount on your premium.
Don’t Make Unnecessary Claims
Every time you make a claim, your IDV goes down and your premium goes up. If you can handle small bumps and scrapes by yourself, it’s a good idea to do that. Making a claim, even for a small issue, could pinch your pocket in the long run. Additionally, you risk losing your NCB.
