Why do I need motor Add-ons?

Our standard car insurance attempts to provide protection for all possible situations a driver is likely to face, however despite this it is a policy that covers risks common to most vehicles. Further, there are certain circumstances that are specific to certain regions, vehicle type, level of use etc.
Add on covers provide protection against such specific risks. All you need to do is key-in your details into our quick quote section and you shall receive customized recommendations for add-ons in accordance with parameters like vehicle age, make, model, No-claims-bonus, location among various other factors. Given are certain specific situations where add-ons have benefitted vehicle owners greatly.
Consider the following:
a) Heavy rainfall and flooding
If you happen to live in an area that faces heavy rainfall and is prone to flooding, the chances are that your vehicle will be exposed to probability of water seeping into its engine. And if you even turn on the ignition key of your car while it’s parked in a water-logged area it can cause massive engine damage.
Further, you must know that such damage will be considered as consequential loss and will in all likelihood not be covered by your regular four wheeler insurance policy. A Hydrostatic lock cover addresses precisely this issue. It covers expenses pertaining to engine.
b) A single claim can bring your ‘No-claims-bonus’(NCB) to zero
If you happen to be a cautious driver who has accumulated a fair amount of NCB then imagine your plight if a single claim caused a teenage driver or close relative brings down your No claims bonus to zero. Unbelievably, car insurance offers a solution to this concern in form of ‘No Claims Bonus Protector’ Cover. This cover protects your NCB for 2 admissible claims during the course of your policy period.
c) Bumper to Bumper Driving (Better protection through Depreciation Cover)
Most persons travelling to work and back during office peak hours in a metro or mini metro would know of the jam packed bumper to bumper driving experience each commuter faces. Situations of fender benders are extremely common. Under a regular insurance policy generally only 50% of repair expenses for plastic, fibre and metal parts are reimbursed. Even for other parts the claim amount is subject to depreciation.
This means that you shall receive an amount, which is lower than the actual repair expense. In several cases the amount deducted on account of depreciation could be as high as 50%. Depreciation cover is a solution to this problem. Not only does depreciation cover make up for the depreciated amount it also provides complete repair expense reimbursement for plastic, fibre, glass and metal parts.
The shared examples are just a few but there are several risks that are specific to location, vehicle age, driver type, level of use among others. Add-on covers let you customize your existing car insurance to suit your needs in accordance with risks that are specific to your situation.

My claim is settled in a single day and got the 85% of settlement amount very next day. Bharti Axa team has helped in a very effective way to get the amount well within a week of the incident.

I wanted to highlight & write specifically about the good work which Mr. Saravana & Team exhibited by going that extra mile to help us getting the IDV value of our Car, which got burnt due to the mishap which happened during the Aero show this year.

I really appreciate his and his team's willingness to help a customer and ensuring that the complete process was taken care seamlessly, without burdening a customer during this low period.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to the AXA insurance team, who had provided support to the victims of unfortunate Airshow fire incident without much hurdles.

I appreciate the decision taken by Senior Officers who had come all the way from Mumbai and Chennai to settle the initial claim amount of 85% to the customers.

Once again Thanks to Team AXA.
