For your insurance plan to pay off when you need it the most, you must ensure that you have adequate insurance coverage. Although comprehensive coverage is enough to cover your car against all potential perils, having certain add-ons can enhance the bubble of coverage so that your car is covered in entirety.
Listed below are some of the car insurance add-on covers that you must consider for your Audi A4.
Roadside assistance add-on covers the accidental breakdown of the vehicle on the road and extends its all-inclusive assistance all-round the day. The policyholders can utilize their claims towards engine breakdown on the road, refuelling, change of tires or even towing the vehicle to the nearby garage. Under this add-on cover, the policyholder shall also receive reimbursement for the cost of hiring an alternative transport or to avail an emergency accommodation facility.
Depreciation reimbursement cover allows the insured to make a claim towards spare parts of the car which has been damaged in an accident. Your comprehensive insurance does not extend coverage towards spare parts of the car and therefore, not having a depreciation add-on cover can lead to hefty out-of-the-pocket expenses in the event of damage to car parts involving an accident.
No-claim bonus is the discount on premium given for every claim-free utility. By using the No-claim bonus, you can get up to 50% discount on the amount of premium towards your car insurance. However, making a claim can result in losing out on the accumulated no-claim bonus.
The no-claim bonus protection add-on cover allows you to make claims without having to lose out on the accumulated benefit of claim-free utility. You can comfortably make two claims per policy year under this add-on protect cover.
Consumables add-on cover pays out for the cost of consumables like nuts and bolts, oils and screws. Since the cost of consumables in luxury cars like Audi A4 is high, investing in the consumables cover can pay off a great deal.
Return to Invoice cover bridges the gap between the invoice value of the car and it's Insured Declared Value (IDV). In the event of total loss or theft of the car, the return to invoice cover ensures that you are compensated with the invoice value of the car and not just the IDV.
It is a wise practice to compare your current car insurance plan to other plans available in the market and briefly carry out a cost-benefit analysis of your car insurance plan.
