What is Comprehensive Car Insurance?
A comprehensive car insurance policy is a type of car insurance that provides extensive coverage and offers protection to your car against various types of damages. This includes accidental damages, theft or total loss, damage caused by natural disasters such as floods, cyclones, earthquakes, fires, etc., as well as damages from human causes like vandalism, riots and terrorism.
In addition to the damages mentioned above, a comprehensive car insurance policy also covers third-party liabilities such as damages to a third party car or injuries caused to a third-party person due to the insured car. The third-party liability also covers the death of a third-party individual due to the insured car, offering protection against the legal liabilities as well.
Once you know what a comprehensive car insurance policy is, it is equally important to understand the relevance of getting a quote for your car insurance before you purchase an online car insurance policy. However, comprehensive car insurance is not just limited to protecting your car but also offers protection to you through a Personal Accident Cover of ₹15 lakhs, which covers accidental injuries, hospital expenses and even death.

Highest Level of Protection
A comprehensive insurance policy offers extensive coverage to the insured car as well as the car owner. It does this by protecting the insured car against various damages, which includes the total loss of the car in case of theft or irreparable damage.

When you buy car insurance with a comprehensive insurance cover, the insurance covers Own Damage as well as third-party liabilities with the payment of a single premium benefit.

Exclusions of Tata AIG Car Insurance Policy
Although our comprehensive car insurance policy offers extensive coverage for your car's needs, there are some instances or exclusions that our policies do not cover.
- Damages caused if one is driving without a valid license
- If the four-wheeler is damaged outside the geographical area, i.e., outside India
- Damages caused if one is driving under the influence of intoxicating substances
- Ordinary wear and tear caused by daily use and depreciation

- Damages to the car due to war or war-like instances in the country and nuclear threat
- If an add-on that covers a specific type of damage is not included.
- Reimbursement of only 50% cost for the replacement of consumables due to wear and tear
Comprehensive Car Insurance Add-ons
Tata AIG offers a set of 12 add-on benefits that you can add to your comprehensive car insurance policy:
The zero depreciation or nil depreciation cover pays you the depreciation cost that is deducted from your car’s parts. With this add-on, the cost of depreciation will not be deducted from the sum insured but only for the first two claims filed by you. You can not only include this add-on to your comprehensive car insurance policy but also to your own-damage car insurance policy.
No Claim Bonus Protection
With the No Claim Bonus Protection add-on with comprehensive car insurance policy, you can file a fixed number of car insurance claims during the policy year without disrupting your accumulated No Claim Bonus (NCB) discount. Since filing even one claim damage in the policy diminishes the NCB discount on your premiums, the NCB Protection cover can be helpful in letting you retain the discount even after you file the claim. But this add-on can enable you to file only a limited number of claims in a year.
The Roadside Assistance cover comes to your aid if your car breaks down and you are stranded in a sparsely populated area with no help or mechanic services nearby. This add-on cover ensures that you won’t have to worry about your car breaking down and being unable to get any help at all. Once you have the cover in your policy, all you have to do is give us a call 1800 266 7780, and we’ll send our team to supply fuel to your car, tow it, or carry out the repairs as needed.
Return to Invoice
When you file a claim for the theft or irreparable damage of your car (total loss), there is a difference between the purchase price and the compensation because of the depreciation. This difference is covered by the Return to Invoice add-on. And if there is a new car available in the market with the same make and model of your lost car, this add-on will fill the financial gap between the claim amount and the price of the new model while also paying for the registration charges and road tax.
Repair of Glass Fiber and Plastic Parts
If the glass, fibre and plastic parts of your car, such as the windows, windshield, etc., are damaged due to any mishap, having this add-on in your comprehensive four wheeler insurance policy can cover these damages when you file a claim with us. The benefit this cover provides is that the claim filed by you will not affect the No Claim Bonus discount you have gathered until now, and you will still be able to enjoy the discount on the premiums. But do note that only one claim will be permitted per policy year.
The Daily Allowance cover provides you with an amount of money for your travel expenses in case your car is damaged and needs to be kept for a long time at the garage. In such a situation, Tata AIG understands that without your car, you will have to pay for your daily commute from your own pocket. Hence, we provide compensation for a period of 10-15 days, depending on the cause of the damage claim and the period for which the car is being repaired at the garage.
Emergency Transport and Hotel Expenses
If your four-wheeler suffers accidental damage and cannot be used without a repair while you are on your way to a certain destination, having the Emergency Transport and Hotel Expenses add-on with your comprehensive car insurance policy provides you with financial support in two ways. Firstly, it will pay for your overnight accommodation at a hotel, and secondly, it will also handle the commuting expenses required for you to go back home or to a city near to the initially intended destination.
Losing your car keys can be a risky mishap that can lead to your car being stolen. In such a situation, or if your car itself is stolen along with the keys, the Key Replacement add-on replaces the lost keys. When you include this add on to your comprehensive four wheeler insurance cover, we will replace your car keys if you happen to lose them due to any of the above events.
The engine is, undoubtedly, one of the costliest parts of your car and having it repaired or replaced can be a major expense. But if the engine comes in contact with water, the damage leads to a repair or replacement. Therefore, if you stay in a flood-prone area, including our Engine Secure add-on to your comprehensive car insurance policy can help you cover the damage expenses without you having to spend anything for the same. However, an exception to this add-on is the engine of an old car that has been in use for a long time.
Having the Tyre Secure add-on in your comprehensive four wheeler insurance policy can help you cover the financial damages to your car’s tyres or the tyre tubes. But the add-on only covers accidental damage to the parts and not if the tyres or tubes are damaged due to the daily wear and tear of the car.
If your insured four-wheeler meets with an accident, the damage caused to the car leads to a loss of consumables such as gearbox oil, nut & bolt, oil filter, air conditioner gas, etc. With the Consumable Expenses add on, the cost of replenishing these consumables will be covered. The only consumable that is not covered in this add-on is the cost of fuel.
Loss of Personal Belongings
If you and your insured car are involved in an accident, it can lead to a loss of personal belongings such as CDs, audio and videotapes, and clothes. This add-on in your comprehensive car insurance policy covers the loss of these items. But the loss of personal belongings such as money, watches, jewellery, and credit or debit cards will not be covered.
What is NCB in Comprehensive Car Insurance?
The Tata AIG comprehensive car insurance policy provides extensive coverage against third-party damages as well as own damage while enabling you to expand the coverage with the help of several different add-ons that offer various types of protection to your car.
To help you lower the burden of premium payments, insurance companies for cars, including Tata AIG, offer the No Claim Bonus or NCB of your car insurance as an important feature and discount on the premiums that we offer. You can avail of the No Claim Bonus or NCB discount on your comprehensive four wheeler insurance policy if you do not file any claims for damages during the policy year. Therefore, when you renew your Tata AIG comprehensive insurance policy, you get the benefit of a lower premium payment for the new policy year.
With subsequent claim-free years, the NCB discount percentage increases, and you continue paying lower premiums. However, if you file a claim during a certain policy year, your NCB discount becomes null and void for the upcoming policy year on renewal. But if you don’t file any claims for 5 years straight, then from the 5th year onwards, you can benefit from a 50% on the insurance premium for your car until you need to file a claim. The given table helps you get a clear idea of how the NCB percentage progresses with each claim-free year:
|Number of Consecutive Claim-Free Years||No Claim Bonus Percentage|
|Five Years and above||50%|
How is Comprehensive Car Insurance Premium Calculated?
A comprehensive car insurance policy can be calculated by calculating the following aspects separately:
Calculate the IDV of your car:
The Insured Declared Value of your vehicle is calculated as the list price of the car and the cost of the car’s accessories. The IDV is derived once the depreciation of the vehicle and the depreciation of the accessories are deducted from the first two variables.
Calculate the No Claim Bonus and Other Discounts:
We have already seen the NCB table in the previous sections. Based on that, determine the NCB discount, along with any insurer-declared discounts applicable on the car insurance renewal premium. Remember the NCB discount only applies to the Own Damage component.
Calculate the Own Damage component:
The formula for calculating the Own Damage premium of your car insurance policy is
[Insured Declared Value * Insurer’s Premium Tariff] + [Add-ons] - [NCB discount]
Calculate the third-party cover:
Tata AIG’s third-party car insurance cover is calculated on the basis of your car’s cubic capacity as per the rates issued by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India. Check the prevailing rates for your engine cubic capacity.
Calculate the total premium of all add-ons selected:
The add-ons you select drive up the policy premium. So, determine the cost of each individual add-on or the total cost of all the add-ons combined.
To sum it up
Comprehensive Car Insurance Premium = [Own Damage Premium] – [No Claim Bonus + Discounts] + [Cost of Add-ons] + [Third Party Premium as Fixed by IRDAI]

Factors That Determine the Comprehensive Car Insurance Premium
Insured Declared Value (IDV) / The market value of the car
The IDV is the prevailing cost of the car in the market. Once a car is driven out of the showroom, its value starts depreciating. When buying car insurance, you have to input the desired IDV of the vehicle. It is the amount you will be paid when the car is stolen. The higher the IDV/market value, the higher will be the cost of the premium.
Age of the Car
The age of the car is considered while determining the car insurance price, and in general, a higher premium is charged for newer cars. The car insurance premium for older cars, due to the impact of depreciation on the cost of the car, is cheaper.
Make, Model, Variant and Fuel Type of the Car
Expensive high-end cars from super-premium brands attract a higher insurance premium rate as compared to other budget cars as the value and the maintenance of these high-end cars is high. Additionally, the fuel used in your car can influence insurance premiums. Petrol, being widely used for most passenger cars, attracts a lower premium as compared to diesel cars that require more maintenance. Even the spare parts of most diesel-powered cars are quite expensive, and this also affects the premium. Similarly, even CNG powered cars are quite expensive when it comes to the car insurance premium.
If your car has been registered in an urban location like a metropolitan city, then you could be looking at a comprehensive car insurance policy with higher premiums than someone whose car has been registered in a rural location such as a remote town or a village. Urban areas pose a greater risk for cars and their owners due to overcrowding and the traffic situation as compared to rural places.
The manufacturing year is important for determining the car insurance premium, as your car depreciates with age. The depreciation reduces the car’s value in the market and, subsequently, the Insured Declared Value (IDV). Therefore, newer cars are likely to have a higher premium as compared to older cars. When you buy your comprehensive car insurance online, even the online premium calculator will consider the manufacturing year of your car.
There are various discounts available on your car insurance price. You can get a discount on your insurance if you are a member of the AAI-Automobile Association of India or have an anti-theft device installed in your car that is approved by the ARAI-Automotive Research Association of India.
No Claim Bonus (NCB)
The No Claim Bonus in your comprehensive car insurance is important for determining or, rather, reducing your premium. If you earn an NCB by filing no claims during the policy year and then renewing your insurance on time, the discount will be applied to your premium in the coming policy year, and after 5 years of not filing any claims, you can pay up to 50% less on your premiums.
How to Reduce Comprehensive Car Insurance Premium?
Driving sensibly and earning a No Claim Bonus (NCB)
Being a safe and responsible driver means that you and your insured car pose less risk to others and, therefore, are less prone to have an accident or file a claim for damages. If you go through the policy year without a claim, you can get a No Claim Bonus discount of 20% on your car insurance premium. This discount goes up to 50% for five consecutive claim-free years and is applied on the Own Damage component of your insurance during car insurance renewal.
Opting for a reasonable IDV of your car
It is important to choose the IDV for your car. If you choose a higher IDV with the aim of getting a higher sum insured, you could be paying higher premiums for the policy. Likewise, with a lower IDV, the premiums will be lower, but the insurance coverage will be insufficient.
Dropping all the unnecessary car insurance add-on covers
Add-ons are meant to increase the coverage of your comprehensive car insurance policy. However, these benefits come at an extra premium and, therefore, should be selected wisely so that your car insurance premium is not too high. To keep your premiums in check, you can use the car insurance calculator on our website to understand how the add-ons will affect your premiums and which necessary ones you should choose.
Renewing your policy before its expiry date
It is always a wise idea to carry out your car insurance renewal at least a couple of weeks before the policy is about to expire. Not only does this give you enough time to rethink which add-ons you would like to include in your policy, but you can also avoid losing out on the No Claim Bonus discount that lowers your premium payment in the next year.
Not raising a claim for minor expenses arising out of an accident
Some mishaps cause small damages to the car which can be easily repaired in no time and hardly cost any money. If you take care of these small expenses by yourself, you can avoid filing a claim and thereby earn a No Claim Bonus discount on your premiums. If you don’t file claims for 5 consecutive years, you can save up to 50% on the premiums.

7. What are some effective tips to reduce car insurance premiums?
One of the most effective ways to reduce your car insurance premium is to calculate the IDV of your car properly. This results in you paying an affordable premium while ensuring that your vehicle receives the right amount of insurance coverage. Also, if your car has safety and anti-theft devices installed in it, this brings down the insurance premium as the risk of your car being stolen is lower.
It is also wise to avoid filing claims for small damages to your car so that you can accumulate the No Claim Bonus discount on your car insurance policy during the policy year. This discount on premiums ensures lower premiums when you renew your policy or even when you purchase a new one. Among the many other ways to keep your car insurance premium affordable, one of the most common ones is to opt only for the add-ons that are essential. By choosing only necessary add-ons, you get better coverage for your car at a nominal cost.
8. How to calculate car insurance premiums in India?
In India, you can get a third-party car insurance policy or a comprehensive car insurance policy. Third-party car insurance is a mandatory car insurance policy that only covers the damages to a third-party vehicle or person. The premium rates are determined by the IRDAI (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India) based on the cubic capacity of a car.
However, a comprehensive car insurance policy includes third-party cover as well as Own Damage (OD) cover. The OD premium is, therefore, calculated with this formula:
Insured Declared Value x rate of premium as specified by the insurer + add on benefits - discounts = OD Premium.
Likewise, you can calculate the insurance premium of a car with a price calculator in India.

9. Does the car model affect the cost of a car insurance premium?
Yes, the car model is one of the important factors that go into calculating your car insurance premium. Based on the model of the car, the Insured Declared Value or IDV is calculated, which is the current market value of your car. This, in turn, determines the amount of insurance coverage your car should have. If the IDV is higher, the premium costs will also increase.
