Every year value of your car depreciates (value reduces with time). So at the time of claim, you only get the reduced value of the car. At the time of a settlement, the claim amount is reduced due to depreciation. This results in a great reduction of the claim, which eventually has to be paid from your pocket despite the insurance. Depreciation cover helps avoid this. With this add-on cover, you get the full amount without factoring the depreciation amount.
Car Insurance is a statutory requirement today. Plying a car without proper Car Insurance invites punishments as it is an offence according to Motor Vehicle Act. And with the right level and right kind of insurance Cover it provides financial compensation for unforeseen mishaps related to your vehicle. The coverage provided is valid for accidents or vehicle theft, natural disasters, man-made disasters and for various other issues such as breakdowns, depreciation and more. Based on your requirement, you can select Add-On covers to protect your vehicle with; one of them being the Zero Depreciation Cover.
What is a Zero Depreciation Cover for Car Insurance?
When it comes to Car Insurance, people usually prefer to take the Comprehensive Insurance Plan which covers the vehicle, the owner and any Third-Parties. To protect the value of your car which depreciates over time, you will need to have a Zero Depreciation Cover. This protects you from incurring additional financial expenses because of depreciation. It enables you to claim without deducting any depreciation on certain materials. In case of an accident, the complete cost will be covered by the insurance company without considering the depreciation cost of parts. You get the maximum reimbursement for your claims. To put it simply, Zero Depreciation Cover offers complete Coverage without factoring in depreciation.
How Depreciation Works in Standard Car Insurance Cover?
If you check out the comprehensive plan of a standard Car Insurance, you will know there is a huge amount of depreciation that is deducted at the time of claim.
The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDA) has established the following systems for calculating the depreciation value:
The duration on how the depreciation value is calculated is listed below:
When you make a claim with the general car insurance policy, the insurance company reimburses according to depreciated vale of the car parts considering the above points. This is irrespective of the actual cost. If you have a new car, even a small damage can turn out to be expensive. A Zero Depreciation Cover will prove to be financially prudent in the long run.
Benefits of Zero Depreciation Cover Over Standard Cover?
A standard insurance Cover plan does not provide Zero Depreciation. Whereas the Zero Depreciation Cover delivers full settlement Coverage. Here, depreciation won’t play any role however old your car may be. It just costs 15-20% of the standard Cover.
The difference between the two across various parameters is detailed below:
ZERO DEPRECIATION COVER
Offers settlement Coverage without accounting for depreciation.
Claim amount is based on the current value of the vehicle, considering the depreciation.
Cost of Plastic Fiber and repairing
Insurer bears the maximal amount
Policy Holder should pay more from his/her pocket
Age of the Car
Usually Covers New Cars up to 5 years.
Can be availed for a car which is more than 3 years old.
What Factors Affect the Zero Depreciation Premiums?
Why Opt for Bharti AXA Zero Depreciation Cover?
Many believe Zero Depreciation Cover is more for new drivers. However, even the best trained and experienced drivers can face an unforeseen event. Hence, Zero Depreciation Cover as Add-On Cover with your standard Car Insurance Plan is recommended for all car owners with cars less than 5 years old.
Key Features of a Zero Depreciation Cover:
Unforeseen natural calamities can cause several problems to your car. Problems you face due to natural forces can prove to be costly at times, especially if your vehicle is not protected by a good Car Insurance Policy. An Insurance Policy helps not only during natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and cyclones, but also during vehicle breakdowns and medical emergency following an accident.
Select the perfect Insurance Plan for your vehicle and make sure to also consider any Add-Ons that you need for added protection. One such Add-On Cover that is recommended for areas which experience floods is the Hydrostatic Lock Cover. Read on to know more about the Add-On Cover:
What is a Hydrostatic Lock Cover?
A Hydrostatic Lock is basically a condition when the engine of your vehicle gets locked due to water seeping in. This results in your car not starting or stalling when you are moving. A hydrostatic lock happens when your vehicle is moving through a flooded area or is parked in any area prone to floods. A Hydrostatic Lock Cover protects you in case your car experiences a Hydrostatic Lock.
Parts that get damaged in hydrostatic lock
Although there is not any predefined process which results in this condition, we do have an overview of what exactly happens during a hydrostatic lock condition. Whenever you drive your vehicle through a place which is flooded or inundated, water can easily enter the engine through the intake valve and replace the fuel present inside the engine for combustion. This inhibits ignition, which is required for the proper functioning of the engine. Hence, the engine gets locked and the vehicle cannot start.
Is Hydrostatic Lock Covered under Car Insurance?
Neither the Comprehensive nor the Third-Party insurance cover Hydrostatic Locks by themselves. You need to purchase an Add-On Cover to protect against the same. Bharti AXA offers Hydrostatic Lock Cover and many other Add-On Covers along with their Car Insurance Plans.
Why do you need a Hydrostatic Lock Cover?
Hydrostatic Lock is a common condition especially in heavy rainfall and water-logged areas. This event cannot be prevented as natural calamities are certainly not in our control.
Why Bharti AXA Car insurance add-on is a smart choice?
Car Insurance from Bharti AXA has many benefits. Not only do you get 24x7 assistance, the company also has 2500+ cashless partner garages where you can get your car repaired. Here are some other benefits of Car Insurance from Bharti AXA:
So, a hydrostatic cover should be added to your car insurance policy by Bharti AXA. It will ensure savings in the long run.
A claim free year can give you up to 50% discount on the renewal premium due to the ‘No Claim Bonus’.
The percentage can get reduced to 0% because of a single claim.
This add-on cover helps you retain the same ‘No Claim Bonus’ even after 2 claims in the policy period.
ar Insurance is a mandatory legal requirement. In addition to that, having a good policy can prove to be vital for protecting your vehicle in case of accidents, theft, natural calamities and more. Before you purchase any Insurance Cover, it is important to know the terms & conditions of the same and also the inclusions and exclusions of the policy. Based on this knowledge and your requirements, you can select any Add-On Covers for your vehicle. One such Add-On Cover is the No Claim Bonus Protector.
What is a No-Claim Bonus Protector?
In a typical Insurance Policy, once you make even a single claim, your No-Claim Bonus expires. This means you can only get a No-Claim Bonus discount if you do not make any insurance claims on your policy and even a small claim can cancel this Bonus. What a No-Claim Bonus Protector does is protect your NCB in case of claims. An NCB Protector Add-On Cover can prove to be useful as it can provide added financial protection at the time of policy renewal. The No-Claim Bonus Protector will protect NCB in case of 2 claims during the stipulated policy period.
The Need for a No-Claim Bonus Protector
When you are buying your first Car Insurance Policy, there is no NCB as you have No-Claim records. But when you opt for the renewal of the policy, you can avail the benefits of NCB, if there are no claims during the policy period. You can efficiently claim a discount of 20% on your first renewal of the Car Insurance Policy. And the discount increases steadily for every renewal with No-Claim in the Policy period.
For 2nd renewal of the policy, you can avail a discount of 25%, for 3rd - 35 %, for 4th - 45% and for 5th renewal - 50%. So, if you are maintaining a good track record of No-Claims during the Policy Period, you can efficiently avail the available discounts with every renewal.
There may be occasions where you cannot control damage to your car and raising an insurance claim can affect your NCB. This is where the No-Claim Bonus Protector will prove to be useful. It will prevent your NCB from being affected.
Transfer of No-Claim Bonus:
The NCB is associated with the Policyholder, not with the car. We have observed that, when the Policyholders buy a new car, they forget about the No-Claim Bonus. Thus they have to pay the entire amount of the renewal premium.
If you have earned an NCB, you can inform the insurance company and can claim your discount on the renewal. If you have availed the No-Claim Bonus (NCB) protector with your Insurance plan, then that will also be transferred to a new insurance company if you transfer your Policy.
So, in case you are planning for a new car, talk to the insurance company and claim the additional discount that you are eligible for thanks to the NCB.

There are times when you are urgently leaving for a meeting and are not able to find your car keys. You search high and low only to realize that you have misplaced them. In such situations, it is often not possible to get the keys locally made as cars today have highly secure keys which can only be replaced by the manufacturer.

Your basic Car Insurance Policy, whether it is Third-Party Liability Cover or Comprehensive Car Insurance Plan, does not include any cover pertaining to keys. Whether they are lost or stolen, you have to request a new one from the manufacturer. You may have to wait for 5-10 days to collect the replacement key. In most cases, you may even need to replace the locks, which is another added expenditure. The more luxurious and high-end the car model is, more expensive the new set of keys will be.
Key Replacement Cover will reimburse the expenses incurred for procuring a new key.
Inclusions of the Key Replacement Cover

Buying a Key Replacement Cover:
Since this is additional coverage on the standard policy, the cost of cover is over and above the base premium. However, this extra cost is worth all the trouble and expenditure you will have to incur if the keys are lost or stolen.
When you apply for a Car Insurance Policy, you can ask the insurance company to give you a list of Add-On Covers. If there is no such benefit available, it is advisable to switch to the company which provides it.
Bharti AXA provides various types of Add-On Covers, including Key Replacement Cover. The cover includes:
While the insurance will replace the key, you should also keep them safe. Whenever you buy a car, always make sure you receive two sets of keys. This is because the Insurance Plan will cover only one or two claims. If it is lost or stolen again, you will have to bear the expenses.

Cars today are more of a necessity than a luxury. People wish to get from Point A to Point B without having to wait for public transport which at times is not easily available. This is where cars prove to be an effective solution. However, every machine comes with its own set of care and maintenance issues. As time passes, each vehicle undergoes wear and tear. And there can also be damage due to unforeseen circumstances such as accidents, natural disasters and man-made calamities. This is where a good Car Insurance Policy becomes very important.
Depending upon your requirement you can go for a Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy which will offer your car an all-round protection from Theft, Man-made Calamities such as rioting & vandalism, Natural Disasters such as Cyclones, Typhoons, Floods & Earthquakes and even protect you against any Third-Party Liabilities such as injury or death of a Third-Party or damage to any Third-Party Property.

With Bharti AXA, you can be sure to get your claims settled on the go. So, if you haven’t got your engine and gearbox covered already with us, it’s time you do.
