Omni from Maruti Suzuki is an all-purpose car and a favourite for families and businesses. The micro van from Maruti was as popular as the Maruti 800. It could be used to ferry passengers as well as goods and is used as mobile shops and eateries. It was launched as the Maruti van in 1984 and was named Omni in 1988.

Getting add-ons are recommended as they increase the scope of your policy. Here are some of the add-ons you can consider taking for your Omni:
Renewing your Omni car insurance is something that you must not forget to do. Renewing your policy is easy thanks to the user-friendly features available on PolicyX.com. Here’s how you can do it:
Yes, you can. The no-claim bonus or NCB is given for the driver and not for the vehicle. You can transfer the NCB of your old to your Omni and you can get a discount on the premium.
Sorry but your claim will be denied. Insurance for your car needs to be renewed before the completion of the due date. At the time of the accident, your car was uninsured and hence you will have to bear the entire liability.
Your Omni car insurance policy is for a passenger vehicle. You cannot use it for commercial purposes. If you do so, then your claim in the event of an accident will not be accepted.
Third-party insurance covers legal requirements and compensates injury/damages to a third party. In case you meet with an accident and your vehicle is damaged or if you suffer injuries, you cannot get compensation if you have third party insurance. It is advisable to get a comprehensive car insurance policy for your Omni to get total coverage.
