Here are some recommended add-ons that can widen the coverage of your Volkswagen car insurance policy.
Your car can depreciate by up to 40% in 4 years. Therefore, after 4 years, you will only get 60% of the car’s value or total repair costs in case of a claim. To avoid this, you can opt for the zero depreciation add-on with your Volkswagen insurance policy. This will safeguard your car from depreciation and ensure you get complete compensation in case of a claim.
This is another important add-on you can opt for with your Volkswagen car insurance policy. This add-on protects the important parts of your engine such as the crankshaft, piston, pins, cylinder, gearbox, and so on from damage. This add-on is especially useful if you live in a low-lying area where flooding could damage your car’s engine.
If you drive safely and do not make a claim against your policy, you are entitled to a discount when your renew you plan. This discount is known as No Claim Bonus or NCB. If you continue driving safely and maintain your claim-free record, you could enjoy an NCB discount of up to 50%. However, make a single claim and your NCB discount is lost. If you wish to retain your NCB despite making a claim, you can opt for the No Claim Bonus protector add-in with your Volkswagen car insurance policy. This will ensure the NCB you’ve accumulated for years, is not lost when you make a claim.
With the return to invoice add-on, in case of total loss or theft of your vehicle, the insurance provider will pay the on-road price of your car as compensation. Whereas, with a normal plan, you would only get the IDV (on-road price minus depreciation) of your car and this decreases every year!
The Volkswagen is an extremely reliable car. However, even the best cars in the world can experience a mechanical breakdown. This is why it makes sense to include the Roadside Assistance add-on with your Volkswagen insurance. It will ensure that, if you are ever stranded due to mechanical failure, you can get help with just a single call.
These are some of the standard exclusions of car insurance in India.
In the case of a Third-Party or Liability Only Car Policy, damages to own vehicle won’t be covered.
You were driving drunk or without a valid driving licence.
You hold a learner’s licence and were driving without a valid driving licence-holder in the front passenger seat.
Any damage which is not a direct result of the accident (e.g. after an accident, if the damaged car is driven incorrectly and the engine gets damaged, it will not be covered)
Any contributory negligence(e.g. damage due to driving a car in a flood, which is not recommended as per the manufacturer’s driving manual, will not be covered)
If you want basic and affordable coverage for your Volkswagen, you can opt for third party insurance. These plans do 3 things for you. Firstly, they serve the basic legal requirement to drive your car on Indian roads. Secondly, they ensure you do not have to pay for third party damages and injuries in an accident you are involved in. And lastly, they will provide a payout of up to 15 lakhs in case an accident leads to your total permanent disability or death.
However, third party insurance does not cover damages or total loss of your own vehicle. So while these plans might be extremely affordable, they do not offer any protection for your Volkswagen.
If you want to give your car complete protection, on and off the road, you should purchase this type of Volkswagen car insurance. This is because, comprehensive plans are made of two components, third party cover and own damage cover. This means that they provide everything that third party insurance.
But, along with this, comprehensive plans also protect your car. These plans offer coverage against damages and total loss of your vehicle due to accidents, acts of nature, theft, and other manmade calamities. Comprehensive car insurance also allows you to choose from different add-ons that widen the coverage of your plan and provide you with increase protection from perils of the road.
You should know these important car insurance terms before you buy a Volkswagen car insurance policy.
Premium is the cost of your Volkswagen car insurance policy. It is the amount you have to pay to enjoy car insurance coverage. It is usually payable annually, except for the case of long-term plans, where it is usually paid once every 3 years.
The financial protection provided by your insurance policy is known as coverage. The coverage of a car insurance policy will vary based on the insurance provider and the type of plan you purchase.
Add-ons are extra amounts of financial protection that you can purchase to widen the coverage of your Volkswagen car insurance policy.
IDV stands for Insurer Declared Value. It is the listing price of your vehicle minus depreciation. In case of a total loss of your vehicle or theft, IDV is the maximum compensation your insurance provider will offer.
No claim bonus, or NCB, is like a reward for not making a claim. It is a discount you enjoy when you renew your plan after a claim-free year. This discount will keep increasing for every claim-free year. You can avail a maximum discount of 50% year after year for not making any claims against your policy.
