Add-on covers available with Reliance Comprehensive Car Insurance Insurance

Return to Invoice:
In case of a total loss or theft, a standard comprehensive car insurance policy pays the insured a sum equal to the IDV or Insured Declared Value. IDV is the maximum amount that the insurer will cover and is based on the current market value of the car. The current value of the car and the purchasing value of the car are different. The Return to Invoice add-on cover allows you to cover the difference between the IDV and the original price of the car.
Daily Allowance Benefit:
If your car is getting repaired in one of our network garages and stays there for more than 3 days, you can get a daily allowance covering the cost of your travel or commutation until the car is returned.

With the Engine Protection Cover, you will stay guarded against the cost of repairing your engine or gearbox because of water ingression or leakage of the lubricating oil spilling into the engine. These events are not covered under a standard stand-alone or even comprehensive car insurance policy and can cause a major financial expense.
EMI Protection Cover:
If your car is being repaired in one of our network garages and is retained for more than 21 days, under this add-on cover, Reliance Car Insurance will pay for your EMI. Note that this add-on is applicable for 3 EMIs. Also, an EMI is paid out only if the car undergoes repair through a set of 21 days. The second EMI will be paid if the car is kept in the garage for 42 days and likewise.
Nil Depreciation Cover:
Depreciation is the wear and tear that happens over time due to usage. As time passes, the value of your car decreases, which reduces the insurance coverage amount. The Nil Depreciation Cover add-on provides the full cover without deducting the costs of depreciation.
