What is a car insurance plan?

A car insurance plan is a mandatory insurance coverage requirement on all cars so that they can legally ply on the roads of the country. This insurance cover would take care of the financial loss which may arise due to any accident incurred by using the car. While any third person or a third party property would have to be compulsorily compensated under a third party policy which is a legal requirement, you can also cover any injury you sustain or any damage which your car faces by buying a comprehensive package policy. This policy would have a higher incidence of premium than a normal third party policy.
