What is the hotel expenses for?

Have you tried getting quotes from other Insurers too or are you firm on going with Tata AIG/

incase of any car mishap outside mumbai, they will reimburse me the expenses on hotel stay as the vehicle can not run. Also, for hiring another vehicle to reach my destination/residence back from accident point.

and I am also in talk with berkshire hathaway (agent Bajaj Insurance) for same kind of plan , they are quoting 13k for normal insurance, and will be telling me price for 0 dep plan today.

Hi,
My car's insurance needs to be renewed early next month. Mine is a July 2006 Honda Civic S-MT that I bought last year.
I got it insured with Tata AIG after I transfered my 65% NCB from my other car. As a result, with an IDV of 7L my premium was around 9K.

But I had to claim insurance after my car met with an accident. Now when I called up Tata AIG to get a quote I was told around 26K. This is shocking to say the least.

Considering a 10% depreciation of 10%, I'd think the IDV would be around 6.3L. What should be the premium amount?

My Punto's renewal is due at the end of this month. The IDV being quoted is 4.65 - 4.75 lakhs (this is for a July 2009 1.3 MJD E-pack). The existing policy is with Bajaj Allianz and they are quoting 18k for renewal. This is daylight robbery considering I paid 11k last year and although I filed a claim, it shouldn't mean the premium should skyrocket like this. Note that last year also I had no NCB on my policy. Any suggestions for what the likely premium should be, so that I can negotiate with Bajaj or others?

Thats exactly been my problem with Bajaj Allianz, I had a 65% NCB till last year but I made one claim. Now my car's IDV is around 6.1L and the insurance premium now being quoted is 27K.
Looks like they are trying to recover the insurance claim damages made last year in this year's premium.

I did try Tata AIG, for the same IDV their quote is around 17K.

Hmmm! Seems like Bajaj is licking their wounds after being the most aggresive in sourcing new business by offering discounts as high as 50%. Tata AIG, here I come! How is Iffco Tokio BTW?

Iffco Tokio is decent; I have their policy for my Corsa. No eventuality of claiming Insurance yet, thankfully, but at least renewal etc. is hassle-free. Renewal can be easily done online.

Various charges and discounts like automobile club membership, NCB etc. too are properly mentioned.

thanks again

Seems that way doesn't it?
I just tried HDFC Ergo and they seem their quote seems to be the lowest by far, around 13K.

Has anyone tried them?

The zero % depreciation is a good add on option provided by a very few Insurers. God forbid but if you were to meet an accident, the amount to be shelled out from your pockets is a great put off. Imagine paying 15K from your pocket (just an example) for repairs is heart wrenching, but with the zero % add on the whole repair tab is picked up by the Insurer. Does the 5K look meagre in front of this amount? Think about it.
I feel this option is a must for every new car owner.

See this thread for real life example.

I have an existing car (with NCB of 45%) in my name. I wuld be shortly buying a new car (sedan) where the cost of insurance is likely to be between 25k to 30k. Is there a way I can transfer my NCB from existing car to my new car and save some premium?

I would not be selling my old car as it would still be used in the family. Can I transfer my car in say my wife's name and then use the NCB. Since the car is nearly 6 years old the insurance premium is not that high.

Experts please advise.

Transferring the car, even in your wife's name would mean change of ownership; don't do it. It's not worth the hassle.

Arup,

There is no issue in keeping the car in your name itself. Only cancel the Comp insurance and get your NCB Certificate along with refund of the premium fotr the remaining period (if claims free year and I think more than 60 days remaining ). Buy a TP Insurance or a New Comp Insurance for the old car.

Use the NCB to buy Insurance for the new car.

If you use same insurer they may even give you a "fleet" discount (not sure if this is the case in India)

Best Regards & Drive/Ride Safe

Ram

Default Re: Automobile Insurance - Ask me

My car insurance (2007 Verna) is due next week. For an IDV of Rs. 566915 Bajaj Allianz (my current insurer) is charging me 12,083 as the cost. It includes 45% NCB while for the same IDV Tata AIG is charging 8000 odd. I know it is a No-brainer. But I had changed my car registration in the current year (Bajaj is yet to update its records) though I have sent them the details. Will I face any issues if I quote the new registration number with Tata AIG? Please let me know.
