Hero Bike Insurance: Add-ons

Add-ons help you to enhance the scope of your Hero bike insurance policy. Some of the exclusions in the policy can be covered through the help of add-ons. Some of the add-ons you can consider buying are:

  • Zero depreciation cover: This is an add-on that helps you benefit at the time of making a claim. Depreciation is calculated as zero, enabling you to get a higher payout.
  • Loss of personal belongings: This add-on allows you to claim compensation for the loss of personal belongings that were in your bike at the time of theft. Only personal items are covered and not money/jewellery.
  • Tyre damage cover: Your bike policy does not cover damage to tyres. Buying this add-on will ensure that the cost of replacing damaged tyres would be covered under the policy.
  • Consumables cover: The cost of consumables (screws, oil filter, etc.) used during repair are not covered under insurance. This policy will ensure it is included.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. There was an oil spill internally, as a result of which my bike engine failed. When I claimed the expenses of repair under insurance, it was rejected. Why?

Engine breakdown failure that occurs due to an oil spill or water ingress is normally excluded from the scope of the policy and you cannot make a claim. If you had purchased the engine safe cover as an add-on, then you can claim for engine repair.

2. My bike met with a major accident and was categorized as a total loss. The money I got as compensation was the IDV, which was actually very low. How can this be increased?

The IDV (Insured Declared Value) of the bike reduces every year in line with the market price. If you want to get a higher claim due to a total loss or theft, then it is suggested to buy the return to invoice cover. This will ensure that your total loss is calculated against the invoice price and not the IDV.

3. My bike was parked on the road when a miscreant deliberately damaged the bike. Is it possible to claim the expenses for repair under insurance?

This kind of damage to a bike is considered vandalism and is covered under man-made hazards in your insurance policy. You can definitely claim for these expenses under insurance and can get reimbursed for the same.

4. I have given my bike for repair after an accident. The damages have been major and it would take a week to complete the repair. Can I claim the expenses I incurred on travelling to the office during this period?

The basic insurance policy does not have a provision for such a claim. However, if you had purchased the daily allowance add-on cover, then you would be paid a fixed sum of money. This money is given by the insurer to take care of your travel expenses while your bike is under repair (subject to limits mentioned in the add-on document).
