Car Insurance

Let’s get you started on your car insurance journey!

Car insurance or four wheeler insurance is an agreement between a car owner and the car insurance provider that offers protection for four-wheelers in the case of financial losses due to unforeseen events like accidents and natural calamities. This contract more often than not, is perceived as a piece of paper to be kept in the dashboard of the car and to be taken out only in case the traffic cops ever asks you for papers. But that’s not all! This paper financially protects your four wheeler in case of damage or loss through an accident. When you’re on the road, no matter how careful, there are chances that you might meet with an accident & you can end up with hefty repair bills.


Well, there are different kinds of four wheeler insurance such as third party car insurance which protects you from financial implications when the insured car accidentally causes damage to third-party vehicle/property or injuries to a third-party or person. This third-party car insurance or liability only cover policy, does not cover damages caused to the insured car. In India, as per the Motor Vehicle Act, it is compulsory to have a valid third-party insurance policy if you want to take your car on the road.


Another type of car insurance policy is comprehensive car insurance policy that protects not only against any third-party liability but also against any financial damage to the car that may be caused due to accidents, theft, fire & natural disasters such as lightening, storm, flood, cyclone etc. or damages which are man-made like vandalism, riots etc. Not only that! You can also avail a Personal Accident Cover which will cover for injuries or God Forbid, any severe physical damage, incurred in an accident!

Points To Consider While Choosing Car Insurance

The process of buying car insurance is simple but takes time and quite a bit of research. Tata AIG understands the importance of having a suitable four wheeler insurance policy and offers car insurance policies that cater to varying individual needs and budgets. Below are some points you should consider when you buy car insurance:

custom list

Decide Insurance Type

While choosing four wheeler insurance, you can choose between a basic third party liability cover and a comprehensive insurance cover. While having a basic third-party insurance cover is a legal compulsion and covers damages caused only to a third party individual or property, a comprehensive car four-wheeler policy offers more extensive cover that offers protection against accidental damage, damages due to loss and theft, natural and man-made disasters and also offers a personal accident cover. We at TATA AIG also provide varied types of insurance such as Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy, Stand Alone Own Damage Car Insurance Policy, and Third Party Car Insurance Policy. This array of choices so that you can find the car insurance type that best suits you and your car’s needs.

custom list

Check Policy Coverage

The policy coverage of your car insurance policy will depend mainly on your needs and your budget. Apart from that, your car’s make and model, the area you live in and other factors will affect the policy coverage. While choosing a suitable insurance policy, you can use the Tata AIG car insurance calculator to calculate and compare the coverage of various policies before making an informed decision.

custom list

Availability of Add-ons

While you buy car insurance online or renew your policy, you can consider extending or enhancing your policy cover with the help of appropriate add-ons. We offer a set of 13 unique add-ons such as Key Replacement, Return to Invoice, Engine Secure and more, that meet various situations outside the scope of your car insurance policy. A selection of the appropriate add-ons in your car insurance policy can provide an all-round protection to your four wheeler.

custom list

Check Insured Declared Value

The IDV or Insured Declared Value of the car is its current market value. When calculating your car insurance, the IDV is important as it is the amount your car is insured for. In case of “total loss” - complete damage or theft of the car - the policyholder receives the Insured Declared Value when the claim is settled. Always select the IDV carefully as a lower IDV means insufficient compensation in the event of total loss, even though it means lower policy premiums. On the other hand, a higher IDV could mean paying more expensive premiums.

custom list

Network of Cashless Garages

If you want to repair your car in case of minor or major damages, then you could visit your insurance provider’s network garages to have the damages repaired. By doing so, you can avail of the cashless claims, wherein, the insurer will directly pay the cost of repairs to the garage, and you won’t have to splurge exorbitant amounts on your repairs!

custom list

Compare Quotes

Tata AIG’s online Car Insurance Calculator makes it easy for you to compare different four-wheeler insurance policies online. Depending on your budget and requirements, you can choose the insurance amount, the add-ons and then compare different plans to find the appropriate one to protect your car.

custom list

Check Claim Settlement Ratio, review, and service offered

The claim settlement ratio of a company is an important factor to be considered while purchasing your car insurance. If your insurer’s claim settlement ratio is high, it indicates a better chance of your claims being settled on time. Similarly, the service offered by the insurance company directly affects customer loyalty and should be checked before you buy a four-wheeler insurance policy from the company.

No Claim Bonus Protection

image

The No Claim Bonus or NCB Protection cover enables the policyholder to file a certain number of car insurance claims during the policy year while retaining the NCB discount. This add-on is useful if you want to file a claim and also protect your NCB discount. However, there is a limit on the number of claims that can be raised with this add-on. The NCB Protection is available only with a comprehensive car insurance policy.

image

Roadside Assistance

image

The road-side assistance is an add on that provides round-the-clock breakdown assistance to your insured car and you if the car breaks down in a remote location with no aid nearby. Your insurance provider will send a team to refuel or tow or offer a mechanic’s services in an emergency when contacted.

image

Repair of Glass Fiber and Plastic Parts

image

This add on lets you have the damaged glass, fiber and plastic parts repaired from the garage and then raise a claim for the damages without affecting your No Claim Bonus discount. However, for each policy year, only one repair claim is allowed against your comprehensive four wheeler insurance policy.

image

Daily Allowance

image

If your car meets with an accident and has to stay in the garage for a long time, the Daily Allowance add-on provides you with an amount for your travels without your car. The amount is payable for 10-15 days, subject to the cause of the four-wheeler insurance claim.

image

Emergency Transport and Hotel Expenses

image

Should your car meet with an accident and you’re unable to reach your destination, this add-on pays your overnight accommodation expenses in a hotel and the travel charges to go back home or to the city closest to your destination.

image

Key Replacement

image

The key replacement add on covers the cost of replacing your lost car keys in case of the car’s or key’s theft.

image

Engine Secure

image

The Engine Secure cover is among the useful add-ons as it protects one of the most expensive parts of your car - the car’s engine. If you stay in a flood-prone area, this add-on helps you file a claim for repairing or replacing the engine without incurring an extra cost. The comprehensive four wheeler insurance policy does not cover your engine’s protection. This add-on is not effective for old car engines that have undergone extensive wear and tear.

image

Tyre Secure

image

With this add on, you can cover the repair or replacement of a damaged tyre or the tube. However, this add-on can only protect the financial losses in case of loss or damage to the tyres and tubes in an accident.

Consumables Expenses

image

With this add-on, we cover the cost of the consumables in your insured car that are lost and have to be replaced due to an accident. Consumables include air conditioner gas, engine oil, gearbox oil, nut & bolt, oil filter and so on. However, the cost of fuel cannot be covered with this add on.

Return to Invoice

When you file a claim for the total loss of your car due to theft or complete damage, this add-on helps cover the difference (due to depreciation) in the cost between the purchase price and the compensation amount. Also, if there is a new car of the same make and model in the market, we will reimburse the difference between the claim amount and the cost of the new model. We will also pay for the registration charges and the road tax you have spent on the car.

image

Zero Depreciation

image

When you file a claim for damages, zero depreciation or nil depreciation add-on enables you to be reimbursed for the deducted cost of depreciation on your car’s parts. Hence, you can receive the complete sum insured without the deduction of the depreciation. However, you can avail of this benefit only for the first two claims that are filed. This add on is only applicable for your own-damage car insurance policy or comprehensive car insurance policy.

Factors Affecting Car Insurance Premium

Most car insurance policy purchases are decided on the cost of the four-wheeler insurance policy. Owner-drivers compare car insurance policies based on the premium to be paid and generally choose the lowest priced one. Therefore, if you wish to choose a cost-effective car insurance plan, you need to know the factors affecting the premium. Here they are:

image

Insured Declared Value (IDV)

Insured Declared Value (IDV)

Insured Declared Value (IDV) is the current market value of the car after accounting for depreciation. IDV is the maximum amount you can claim if your four-wheeler is stolen or has suffered a total loss. Your car insurance is directly proportionate to your IDV, meaning higher IDV results in higher car insurance premiums.

image

Age of the Car

Age of the Car

The age of the car affects the premium of a four-wheeler insurance policy. Insurance premiums are more expensive for brand new cars and cheaper for older ones. Since the value of your vehicle depreciates every year, the IDV/Insured declared value falls and along with the policy premium.

image

Insurance Coverage

Insurance Coverage

The type of policy you purchase for your car decides the cost of the car insurance policy premium. A policy such as third-party insurance would cover only the third party liabilities, which will come at cheaper premiums. Meanwhile, a comprehensive car insurance policy will cost more as it would cover all parties involved - you, your car, third-party and third party property. Meanwhile, our other types of insurance such as stand alone own damage policy provide a gamut of options in cover, which in turn delivers options in premium amounts.

image

Add-ons

Add-ons

Your car insurance premium will increase when you opt for add-ons with your policy. Different add-ons provide different types of additional cover for your four wheeler, and your premium will depend on the number and types of add-ons you have chosen.

image

Engine Capacity

Engine Capacity

The size of the engine will influence your car insurance premium. Cars with higher cubic capacity engines will attract higher premiums for a car insurance policy than cars with lower engine capacity. Additionally, the IRDAI declares the annual third-party car insurance premium rates based on the engine cubic capacity of the vehicle.

image

Deductible

Deductible

Deductibles denote the percentage of claim amount paid by the policyholder from their own pockets. A higher voluntary deductible means a lower premium as the proportion of the insurer’s liability goes down. However, a higher deductible also means a higher proportion of the claim that needs to be paid by you. So choose welll.

image

Claims History

Claims History

Car owners who have not made claims in a given year can avail of a No Claim Bonus (NCB) from the insurer. NCB is a progressive discount on the renewal premium for a car insurance policy, which goes up with each claim-free year. Five consecutive no-claim years can fetch you a decent discount of 50% on the car insurance renewal premium.

image

Other Factors

Other Factors

Some other factors that affect the premium of a car insurance plan are the age of the owner, location where the vehicle is registered, make, model and variant of the car, any modifications made to the vehicle and if the car has additional security features. These factors can decrease or increase the premium you have to pay for your car insurance policy.

How To Calculate Car Insurance Premium?

The car insurance premium drives the choice of a four-wheeler insurance policy by individuals. As seen in the above section, there are many factors that affect this premium. But do you know how you can calculate the exact premium for your choice of car insurance policy? Below are the popular methods of calculating your four-wheeler insurance premium:

How To Reduce Car Insurance Premium?

The car insurance premium is one of the most important factors people consider when buying a policy. Owners-drivers are always looking out to get extensive coverage at affordable premiums. Here are a few tips that will help you reduce your car insurance premium:"

1

Additional Security Measures

If you choose to install additional security devices in your vehicles, such as parking sensors and anti-theft apparatus, you effectively reduce the risk associated with your vehicle. A reduced liability risk leads to lower premiums for your car insurance.

2

No-Claim Bonus

When you renew your policy after a claim-free year, you get a discount on the premium you have to pay. This discount can go up to 50% for five consecutive claim-free years. However, even a single claim will reset the NCB back to zero. Avoid making claims against your policy for minor damages to keep your NCB from lapsing.

3

Insured Declared Value

When you get a car insurance policy, the company runs an assessment to establish the highest claim value for your vehicle, known as the Insured Declared Value (IDV). However, you can reduce the vehicle’s IDV in exchange for a reduced cost of the premium. But remember that lower IDV entails a lower reimbursement in case of theft or total damage to the car.

4

Increase Voluntary Deductibles

A voluntary deductible is a choice by the policyholders to pay a proportion of the claim amount while the insurance company pays the rest. When you raise a claim, the insurer will deduct this amount and settle the difference. By opting for higher deductibles, you can substantially reduce the cost of your car insurance premium.

How To Renew Expired Car Insurance Online?

In case you fail to renew your four wheeler insurance before it expires, do not fret. When there is a break in the policy, you can buy fresh cover for your vehicle; however, we might need to send an inspector or surveyor to inspect your vehicle before the policy is issued. Need more? If you purchase a expired car insurance from us within 90 days from the expiry of your previous policy, you may be allowed to keep your No Claim Bonus (NCB).

Here is how you can renew an expired car insurance policy with Tata AIG:
Step 1 - Go to the TATA AIG car insurance renewal page.
Step 2 - Input your car registration number. Click on ‘Renew.’

  • Zero Depreciation Cover
  • Roadside Assistance Cover
  • Return to Invoice Cover
  • Engine Secure
  • Tyre Secure
  • No Claim Bonus (NCB) protection, etc
Step 4 - Also, keep at hand information about any claims made in the previous policy tenure and date of expiry of the policy. Additionally, you will need details of the car’s make and model and your personal information.
Step 5 - After you submit all the details, your car insurance premium is generated and displayed on the screen.
Step 6 - Complete your car insurance premium payment online, and your expired policy is renewed!
Once renewed, the car insurance policy will be emailed to your authorised email ID. Always carry a copy of your insurance policy when driving your car.

How To File A Four Wheeler Insurance Claim?

A claim against your car insurance policy can either be cashless or in the form of reimbursement of costs. Here is what you need to file a claim against your policy

1

Register Your Claim

After making sure that you and your co-passengers are safe, it is advisable to inform your insurance provider of the incident at the earliest and get your claim registered.


To register your claim online, you need to log in to your Tata AIG online and click on 'Claim'. Once you are redirected to the online claim form, you will need to furnish the following information:

  • Your car insurance policy number
  • A few personal details, including your name, number and address
  • License details, or the license details of the driver
  • A few details regarding the incident
  • A copy of the FIR if there was an accident

In the car insurance claim form, you will also need to specify if a third-party was harmed or if third-party property was damaged.

Once you’ve finished entering all the details, you simply need to click ‘Submit’.

2

Get the Claim Intimation Number

After your claim is registered with us, we will provide you with a Claim Registration Number. State this number in all your communication concerning the claim status and settlement."

3

Inspection of the damages sustained

After you have filed a claim and submitted all the required documents, an inspector or surveyor will visit you to assess the damages caused by the incident. Our experts will peruse your car insurance claim form when the assessment is complete and determine the quantum of damage sustained by your vehicle.

4

Take the car to the garage

Based on the surveyor's report, we will schedule your vehicle for a visit to either one of our 7500+ network garages or a non-network garage of your choice.

If you choose a network garage, you can make a cashless claim and get your repairs done without the need to pay anything out of your pocket.

If you cannot reach one of our network garages, you can take your vehicle to your trusted garage and pay for the repairs on your own. The cost of repairs borne by you at a non-network garage will be reimbursed against your car insurance cover.

5

Get your car repaired

Depending on your location and preference, you can get your car repaired at a cashless network garage or a non-network garage.

6

We will settle the claim

Once repair work to your vehicle has been completed, we will move to settle the claim after a thorough inspection of your policy documents, add-on covers, additional discounts and claims history. Once all your car insurance claim related documents have been verified, we extend our settlement offer for the cost of repairs. For claims made at non-network garages, owners will be offered a settlement for reimbursements. We ensure a speedy and seamless claim settlement. However, if you wish to track the status of your claim after filing it, you can do so here.

Factors Impacting Insured Declared Value (IDV)

The Insured Declared Value is the approximate market value of your four wheeler and the maximum amount of reimbursement your four wheeler insurance provider can give you in case of your car’s total loss.


One of the major factors that impact the IDV is the age of the car. The older the car, the lower the IDV will be. As a result, the sum insured of the four-wheeler insurance policy will also be lower.


As the car ages, the parts undergo some depreciation due to the usage and resultant wear and tear. While calculating the IDV, the rate of depreciation is taken into account to get to the sum insured. For example, for the first six months, the car’s depreciation rate is at 5% and then increases each year. Once the car is 5 years old, its rate of depreciation is 50% and remains so as the car ages further.


The other factor that influences the Insured Declared Value of the car is the make and model of the car. Hence, the IDV of an expensive car will be higher than that of a more affordable four-wheeler.


Yet another factor that affects the IDV is the city or state where the car was registered. The IDV of cars in metropolitan cities is different from the IDV of cars registered in smaller towns in the country.

Age of the vehicle

% of Depreciation For Fixing IDV

Not exceeding 6 months

5%

Exceeding 6 months but not exceeding 1 year

15%

Exceeding 1 year but not exceeding 2 years

20%

Exceeding 4 years but not exceeding 5 Years
