My situation is a little complicated...
I have a Santro whose insurance policy elapses on June 1st. Around the same time I will be buying a second-hand Lancer. There will be an overlap of around a month while I restore the Lancer and find a buyer for the Santro.
I don't want to purchase insurance for my Santro for a whole year since I plan to sell it in a month or two. At the same time, driving a car without insurance is a strict no-no.
If i buy insurance for the Santro, will the coverage be transferred to the new owner? Not sure how it works...
And another point - does the premium go down with increase of a car's age, or vice versa?
Anyone with some knowhow in this field, pls pitch in. Thanks!

Hi,
I have a confusion regarding my insurance renewal. Experts please help

Car details:
Hyundai Accent 1.6 GLS with ABS (petrol).
year - 2003

Current Insurance Details
ICICILombard
IDV 287096 and total premium 12272
No claims in current year so NCB = 20%

Renewal Quotes
a) ICICILombard
IDV 255197. Basic premium 5071 - 20% NCB = 4056
3rd party + own driver = 2600
Total premium incl of tax 7370

b) Bajaj Allianz (online calculator)
IDV 303547, Basic premium 8945 - Bonus (2236) = 5703
3rd party + own driver = 2600
Total premium incl of tax 9158

Couple of questions
BA gives higher IDV so is it better? But its basic rate is 3% of IDV. Where as for Icici the basic rate works out to be 2% of IDV
However, BA seems to give a higher bonus % (maybe because I am moving to them from icici)

Overall if I take the total premium to IDV both come close to 2.9% but with BA giving me a higher IDV.

So which one is recommended in terms of the claim settlement and general customer focus?

Please guide.

>> Can do third party insurance and go ahead driving the car. I think this is OK
If i buy insurance for the Santro, will the coverage be transferred to the new owner? Not sure how it works...
>> It would be transferred but new owner will not get NCB. He needs to pay full insurance. Infact you can transfer you insurance to car which you are buying(Lancer). NCB goes with the insurer not with the CAR
And another point - does the premium go down with increase of a car's age, or vice versa?
>> It depends upon IDV value hence it will go down

Tell Bajaj to give you quote on 250000. Since the last year's Idv 287000 you have to reduce it by 10% to 20% every year. Take a transfer from Icici to bajaj Icici is very poor in services where as Bajaj is the best.
