What to look for insurance plan?
In India, every vehicle must own insurance policy that must cover third party liability. Usually, third party insurance plans are cheaper as compared to a comprehensive insurance plan. The difference lies in the coverage provided by both type of policies. Third party insurance policy protects an individual by compensating for damages to third party vehicle and property due to accident. While a comprehensive insurance plan compensates an individual for own vehicle damages, hospitalization expenses, third party vehicle and property damages. One must compare and evaluate each plan before opting for one in order to get best coverage.
