A person who owns a vehicle either four-wheeler or two-wheeler, is the most precious possession for him. Hence, it is important to ensure its safety. The best way to protect your vehicle is through motor insurance. A motor insurance policy not only saves your money in cases of extensive repairs or loss of vehicle but also gives you peace of mind.
Motor insurance is of two types - third party and own damage cover. While third party motor insurance is mandatory by law for all vehicles plying on road, own damage cover is optional. A comprehensive motor insurance policy consists of both third party cover and own damage covers. Third party motor insurance policy compensates you for the loss against physical damage, theft and third party liability. On the other hand, a comprehensive motor insurance policy provides cover for the liability arising out of the third party as well as the loss or damage to your own vehicle.

If you own a two-wheeler, either bike, scooty or scooter, it is mandatory by law to have two-wheelers insurance. It provides protection against financial liability arising out of incidences such as theft, damage or third party damage or death caused by your vehicle.
