Hyper_VTEC thanks for info .If any one can confirm the % NCB increase per year ?
Ok forgot to ask this , suppose right now you have 30 % NCB , you have an accident you claim it , the entire 30 % NCB is gone and there is no NCB next year since you claimed?

No Claim Bonus: If you do not make a claim during the policy period, a No Claim Bonus (NCB) is offered on renewals. This discount can go as high as 50%. (NCB will only be allowed provided the policy is renewed within 90 days of the expiry date of the previous policy.)

Transfer your NCB: You can transfer full benefits of No Claim Bonus when you shift your motor insurance policy to another company.

I am sure ajmat and other knowledgable bhpians would be able to answer you question. I think if you claim, you lose everything.

FAQ


Q: I have not sold my old car and need to take delivery of a new one.

A: Go ahead and buy the new car: you cannot claim your NCB for the first year but make sure you get the NCB letter when you sell your old car. You can use the letter to reduce your second yearís premium.
This is an excellent article. Even I was not aware of it.

I am bit confused with the above two statements in quote. Please throw some light on them.

Thanks..

NCB is transferable from your old car only when you have sold it ?

Can I use the NCB of the old sold car owned by Dad/Wife ?

I learnt this the hard way, I was selling one car but had not sold the old car. The insurance agent misinformed me to pay the full policy on the new car and get a rebate once the old car was transferred and I received the NCB certificate. Alas as per the Insurance rules, I could not get the rebate and had to wait till renewal time. Unless you are superstitious, take your time to sell old car, transfer it then get the NCB

1: Yes

2: No - pertains only to person who took out policy

Guys!!!!

Is NCB based on Policy no. or on policy holders name.
what I mean to ask is that once a claim is made on a particular policy then if the policy is transferred to some other persons name, is he eligible for NCB.

If not then we need to be careful while purchasing second hand cars from dealers because most of them redo the car by claiming car insurance only and the new owner will lose out on NCB.

Cheers

Default No Claim Bonus

I Purchased my Diesel Palio from Sundaram Motors in July 2004.

I was driving Premier for fifteen years and there was no claim in those 15 years.

When I enquired for transfer of NCB, Mr Srinivasan, GM and Mr Tilak Ram did a decent Job of helping me out to transfer this to my new car. i get full rebate and currently I pay Rs 7000 as my insurance premium.

My exprience with TVS Koramangala was pleasurable which was perhaps not the case with others.

i think this is a very good statement , I believe that anything below 10K is not worth claiming for

Kudos to Ajmat. Very helpful information. Never knew these things.

When my 2-wheeler policy is transferred, I did not knew of the NCB transfer. If I had this information earlier, could have saved around 300Rs.
