Your bike insurance will have many exclusions that limit the amount you can claim. If you want to enhance the scope of your policy, you can buy an add-on cover. Choose from any of the following:
You can choose PolicyX.com to get a trouble-free experience while renewing your Ducati bike insurance. Here's how the renewal process works:
The basic insurance policy (that you have) does not cover the cost of towing the vehicle. If you had chosen the on-road assistance cover, then any assistance you obtain on the road like towing of the vehicle, fuel delivery, tyre change, battery jump-starts, etc. can be compensated from the insurer (subject to limits).
Insurers offer a discount to all policyholders who drive safely and don't make a claim. This is called a no claim bonus (NCB). If you do not make insurance claims, the NCB keeps increasing every year (subject to a maximum of 50% on the own damage component). The NCB will help you earn a substantial discount on the premium.
When water gets into your engine, it may lead to engine failure. This is known as consequential damage and is not covered under your basic insurance. You need to buy an engine safe or engine and gear cover. This add-on would cover damages to the engine caused by water ingress or oil leakage.
Don't worry; theft of the bike is covered under your insurance policy. Contact the jurisdictional police station and file a complaint. Make sure you collect the FIR copy from the station. Submit the FIR copy with your insurance claim. Once the claim is processed, you will be compensated for the loss of the bike.
