Under a Third Party car insurance policy, the policyholder receives compensation against any accidental damage sustained by the third party due to the insured car. These damages can be bodily injury or death and property damages of the third party.
A liability-only car policy provides compensation in full for death or injury to the third party, while for property damages, the compensation is limited to Rs. 7.5 lakh. However, any damage to the insured car is not covered under this four-wheeler policy.
The Standalone Own Damage car policy is designed to cover own damages sustained by the insured car due to unforeseen events like a road accident, theft, fire, natural calamities, etc. This motor policy can be purchased to extend the coverage for the car in addition to a third party liability policy.
With a motor private car or comprehensive car policy, a policyholder can cover the insured car against damages arising out of events like accidents, earthquakes, fire, robbery, etc. Furthermore, this car policy also covers the insured car against third party liabilities like injury, death or property damages of the third party.
A comprehensive motor insurance policy offers a wider coverage that can be further extended by purchasing add-ons on payment of an additional premium.
By using a car insurance premium calculator, a policyholder can ascertain and compare the premium of the Universal Sompo car insurance plans before purchasing one. It helps him/her know the cost of the car policy and decide whether it fits within his/her budget or not.

A policyholder can avail this benefit only when the insured car is in the garage for more than 3 days.

Damages sustained by the insured car will be covered up to the annual driving limit.
Engine Protector add-on cover provides compensation for repairing or replacing the engine or its parts, such as the gearbox of the insured car, in case of an unforeseen accident.
Consequential damages sustained by the insured car due to water ingression are covered under this add-on.

It provides 100% repayment on the depreciation of the insured car and all its parts except tyres, tubes and batteries, which are covered at 50%.
The Hospital Daily Cash cover provides a daily cash limit of up to Rs. 2,000 to the policyholder for a maximum of thirty days of hospitalization.
Policyholders can also include a family member in the add-on coverage by paying an extra premium.
