Default Soon, you値l get to buy one insurance policy for multiple cars

Customers can optimize the sum insured as they won稚 be driving two vehicles at the same time.

Mumbai: Usage-based premiums will soon become a reality in the motor insurance industry, with companies offering the single owner of multiple vehicles the option to allocate coverage in line with the anticipated use of each car. So, for the first time, customers will have the option to buy a single policy for multiple vehicles, with different sub-limits for each car.

ICICI Lombard is launching the 吐loater policy option that will allow customers to optimise their sum insured, since they will not be driving two vehicles at the same time. ICICI Lombard痴 壮ingle owner, multiple vehicle floater is an app-based interface that will help link multiple vehicles together and offer coverage. This 吐loater concept is currently available in health policies for families to buy a single sum insured for members covered.

典hree-four cars can be brought under one floater policy, which means that three cars will be covered through one policy, said Sanjay Datta, head of underwriting at ICICI Lombard General Insurance. 展e will develop the prototype and will evaluate it after six months.

A prototype is valid for six months and companies can launch it if it works after this period. Insurers are launching usage based motor insurance where the customer will have the option to pay their premiums on the basis of their driving choices.

Today, most insurers charge customers own- damage premium basis the vehicle make, model, age, location and the no-claim bonus applicable on the policy. The new programme will also factor in driving behavior rash accelerations, hard braking, speed, distance traveled, or the time of the day to compute premiums.

An app will be used to monitor driving behavior and reward the customer for safe driving practices. Based on their driving behavior, customers will be able to see their scores, which will start reflecting in their own damage premium at renewal. Customers will be able to opt for this programme for a period of less than a year.

典he 叢ay as you consume mode will help us charge premiums based on kilometers utilized by the insured, or the amount of time they intend to drive the car, said Tapan Singhel, CEO, Bajaj Allianz General Insurance.

典his will encourage more people to opt for Motor OD insurance since a majority of the vehicles only have Third Party Liability policy as mandated by law.

Makes sense esp. in garages that have multiple cars that do not get used much. But the target audience then seems to be only the rich and above.
In my case, i wish they would let me bundle my car and the motorcycle in the same policy. That would save me a hefty premium on the bike which gets out only on the weekend.

Sounds pretty good to me as an owner of 3 cars that are all lightly used. However, more than convenience, what matters to me (and most others, I bet) is the cost. If this works out cheaper than what I cumulatively pay now, ICICI will have my business. If not, I'm happy with the existing arrangement.

Renewing a policy once a year is hardly a task.

This will be great but how can they capture all the data? If the app has an access to all the vehicle data it may be possible.
This will be a good move as someone who has never made a claim since past 10 years and follows all traffic rules (at least 99% of the time ) I still pay high premium (50% no claim bonus doesn't make too much difference)
