Haven’t we stressed this enough? Yes, comparison saves a lot of money because you can see side-by side the premium and offered benefits for each policy. Simple, intuitive process leads to good decision and big savings. As, we at PolicyBazaar always say, “Ullu mat banno, ankhein kholo aur compare karo”.
Don’t fall for just advertisements. Review all the policy features and determine some riders or add-ons that may not be further required. Cutting on impractical add-ons such as rust protection, sealant cover, etc. can significantly save your premium cost. Make sure to check the utility of each aspect of the plan and keep your options limited.
Yes, you can save upto 50% on your car insurance if you aim for high No Claim Bonus points. Insurance companies will reward you with No Claim Bonus if you don’t make a claim for a full year, or more. The more claim-free years you achieve, the greater the discount that applies to your premium. Drive safe, gain NCB points and save more on your premiums!
Here’s the table showing discount percentage vis-a-vis claim free year/s:
|Number of years with no claim
|Discount on policy renewal (%)
Keeping your deductibles high can significantly cut down your car insurance premiums. For instance, if your excess is Rs. 3000 and your claim is worth Rs. 12000, you will pay the first Rs. 3000 and the insurer will pay for the remaining Rs. 9000. The more your deductible is, lesser premium you’ll have to pay. Just make sure you don’t get carried away and select a deductible that is unaffordable, as you’ll need to pay this amount when you make a claim.
Do you really need to install safety features in your car? While most of the new vehicles come pre-equipped with standard safety features, those with older cars have to think it through. Vehicles equipped with safety features such as anti-theft device, alarm system, anti-lock braking system etc., have generally low premium slabs. Installing additional safety features to older cars can reduce your car insurance premiums in a big way.
When it comes to saving on car insurance, it’s all about knowledge and research. Stay informed and act smart!
