Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. My Platinum Etios car was damaged in an accident and repair will take a week, can I claim expenses incurred on making alternate arrangements for my commutation?

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.

2. I understand that if I make a claim on the insurance, I will lose the no claim bonus. Is there any way to protect the no claim bonus?

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.

3. My Platinum Etios was stolen on 23rd. My insurance policy expired on 24th and I obtained the FIR on 25th. Will my claim be accepted?

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.

4. Is it required to report any accident to the police before making a claim?

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.
