Car Insurance Add Ons

A couple of decades ago, having a car was considered a luxury and people who owned a car were looked upto as having arrived in life. But in today’s India, having a car (or cars) have become an absolute necessity. And given the variety of models to choose from, the rising disposable income of the ever expanding middle class, and the sops offered by the car manufacturers, owning a car is a must. Adding to this, India’s slow improving public transport system, people use the car for their daily office/business commute.

Given that car insurance is mandatory by law (Third party cover is mandatory), in days gone by most car owners either had a simple TP policy or at best a Comprehensive Own Damage (OD) policy. But over the past decade, a significant development in car insurance has been the introduction of innovative and relevant additional covers to ride upon the basic own damage cover.
