V8 Vantage Car Insurance: Add-ons Benefits

An add-on cover is an addition to your basic car insurance policy. By choosing an add-on cover, you are getting certain exclusions in the scope of your policy. You can choose from any of the following add-ons for your V8 car insurance-

  • Zero depreciation is an add-on cover that ensures the cost of depreciation is calculated as zero. This allows you to get bumper-to-bumper coverage.
  • Invoice price is a very useful add-on that ensures that the invoice price of the car is used for calculating claims and not the IDV (Insured Declared Value). This allows you to get a higher sum.
  • Tyre protector is an add-on that includes tyres and tubes under the policy, allowing you to make a claim in case of damages.
  • Consumables cover is an add-on that includes the cost of consumable items used during repair after an accident. Replacing or refilling consumable is now included in the policy.
  • Daily allowance is an add-on that ensures you get a fixed sum of money as a daily allowance when your vehicle is under repair after an accident. This would cover your travel arrangements.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. My Vantage V8 broke down on the highway and had to be towed for repair. I have opted for 24 x 7 road assistance cover. Can I claim towing expenses?

Yes, any kind of assistance on the road for your car is covered under the 24 x 7 road assistance cover. Towing of a vehicle for repair is included and you can claim for its expenses. The claim will be accepted subject to the overall limit for claims for this cover.

2. My Vantage car had an engine problem as the piston was damaged due to oil leakage and had to be replaced. But it was not covered under the policy. Why?

Under the terms of your car insurance policy, damages to engine and engine parts are excluded from the scope of the insurance policy. If you want to get this included, you can buy an engine protector add-on for your policy, which will allow you to claim for damages to engine and engine parts like pistons.

3. A third-party insurance policy is much cheaper than comprehensive insurance. Why shouldn't I opt for it?

As the name itself suggests, third-party insurance covers injuries to a third-party and damage to a third-party's property. It does not cover damages to the vehicle or the policyholder.
