What is an NCB Protection Cover in Bike Insurance?

A No Claim Bonus or NCB is a discount on the premium given to the policyholder for not raising a claim during the policy tenure and encouraging safe driving practices. NCB is a feature that offers a maximum of 50% savings on premiums after 5 consecutive claim-free years.

However, if a policyholder raises a claim during the policy tenure then he/she will not be eligible to get the benefit of No Claim Bonus anymore. Whereas with the NCB Protection Cover, the policyholder gets to enjoy the benefits of the accumulated bonus even if a claim for loss or damage is filed.

Following are the salient features of NCB Protection Add-on Cover in Two Wheelers Insurance-

  • Extra Security-NCB protection cover costs about 5%-10% of the standard policy or may be a little costly. However, it keeps the NCB intact even though the insured raises a claim during the policy period.
