When you buy an add-on cover for your Platinum Etios car, you are enhancing the scope of your insurance policy. Certain things that are normally excluded can be included in the policy when you purchase an add-on. Some of the add-ons you can consider include:
Zero depreciation: ensures that the cost of depreciation of certain car parts would be considered zero and thus, allow you a complete bumper-to-bumper cover.
24x7 road assistance: is an add-on through which you can get assistance for any on-road problems like flat tyres, battery discharge, towing, etc.
Engine protector: is an add-on that allows you to claim for the cost of the engine and related parts under the policy. This is normally disallowed.
Key & lock replacement: is a handy add-on that allows you to be compensated for the cost of a duplicate key/lock for your car, in case the key/lock is damaged or if the key is lost.
Electric Accessories: cover allows you to claim the cost of any electrical accessories that have been fitted in the car and damaged due to an accident.
Renewing your Platinum Etios car insurance is important. Failure to renew can lead to loss of coverage. You can renew your car policy easily when you use the services of PolicyX.com. The procedure for the same is explained below:
The policy by default does not have any such option. If you had chosen a daily allowance add-on to your policy, then it is possible. You will get an amount as a daily allowance while your car is under repair. You can use this amount to hire a cab or make other travel arrangements.
Yes! It is possible if you take an NCB protector add-on to your policy. Making a claim leads to the loss of NCB. With the protector add-on, making a claim allows you to retain your NCB, which will be handy as it gives you a discount.
Yes, it will! The theft happened when the insurance policy was valid. So, your claim is valid and you can be compensated for your losses incurred.
There are two instances where you need to report an accident to the police- if it has led to third party property damage/injury to a third party or if you have suffered serious injuries or if the accident was a major one. You need to report it to the jurisdictional police station at the earliest.
