Comprehensive Damage Cover
You may already be aware that Third Party Liability Car Insurance is mandatory as per law. Therefore, if you own a car, you are mandated by law to take up a Third Party Liability Cover. However, taking up a car insurance policy that doesn't compensate your own damages seems pointless, doesn't it? A comprehensive damage cover was developed to offer a broad coverage against all possible damages arising from a variety of risks.
Our comprehensive car insurance policy offers protection against damages caused to your car by way of risks such as collisions, theft, fire, and so on. Additionally, a comprehensive car insurance policy also covers third-party liabilities and offers extensive protection for your car.
When it comes to car insurance, additional coverage is always better. You can enhance your vehicle insurance coverage protection further with our wide-range of add-on covers such as-
Nil Depreciation (UIN: IRDAN103A0006V01201314)
