The Policy Tenure of this policy is 5 years for Third party Liability, 1 year for Own Damage Section, and 1 or 5 years for CPA cover for owner-driver. Only Newly Registered vehicles (Brand new vehicles) are allowed for Insurance under this Policy.

IDV, or Insurance Declared Value, is technically your bike’s current market price/value. This price is the maximum amount that can be insured and is fixed while purchasing the insurance policy. This amount is also the one that would be paid; if so, it happens that you undergo a total loss or direct theft of your two-wheeler.

This is an important consideration because, over the years, your two-wheeler’s value will get lowered due to factors such as depreciation. This will also cause the IDV to get lowered, along with the premium.

While calculating the IDV, some of the factors taken into account are as followings:

  • Age of two-wheeler vehicle
  • Registration date
  • City of registration
  • Fuel type
  • Model and type of vehicle
  • Insurance policy term

The main focus is on the term or age of the vehicle since that’s how even the depreciation factor can come into account. It is always advised to get an IDV that’s closest to the market value, but it also depends on your insurance company. The company may offer to even reduce the IDV by some percentage which would mean a lower premium rate.

No Claim Bonus has its validity up to 90 days from the expiry of the previous policy date. Now, if you do not renew the insurance policy within 90 days of its expiry, the No Claim Bonus becomes zero and then on the renewal of the policy, there will not be any NCB that will be passed on as you will no longer be eligible.

Yes. You can transfer your existing two-wheeler policy to the new owner of the bike insured. However, you will need to be proactive about this step for a smooth process, as there is a specific time limit for this. The point to be noted here is that the premium remains the same even after the transfer. Furthermore, NCB accumulated by the original policyholder remains invalid for the new owner. The new policyholder will need to wait until a specified time to accrue NCB benefits.

The following factors are important while calculating two wheeler insurance premiums:

  • Bike model and name
  • No Claim Bonus (NCB)
  • The geographical location of your bike.
  • Condition of the two wheeler.
  • Deductibles
  • Age of the insured
  • Add-on covers

This is an online tool available from the company that calculates the premium amount that you need to pay for your two wheeler on the basis of the given credentials. Thus, it also helps you choose the right bike policy. It eliminates the possibility of the involvement of a middleman and eventually reduces the cost. It also helps to facilitate the faster process and reduced paperwork and enables you to recognize the factors that may affect your premium amount.
