Two-wheeler insurance claim covers the Cashless Claim and Reimbursement Claim. It is the same as the claim in car insurance. The cashless claim is where the insurance provider pays for the damage caused to the two-wheeler in an accident. The insurer needs to repair his/her two-wheeler at the network garage of the insurance provider, whereas Reimbursement-Claim or Non-Cashless is where the insurer pays for the damage caused to the two-wheeler in an accident. After the payment is made, the policyholder is required to submit the receipt or bill to the insurer. If the policyholder is entitled, the provider makes a reimbursement claim. In reimbursement claim, the policyholder can get his two-wheeler repaired in any garage. Reimbursement Claim is usually made at the time of the accident; it is made only after the policyholder has already paid for the expenses. The insurer checks the costs incurred for the repair. The policyholder needs to provide valid documents. Otherwise, the insurer may reject the claim.
It is important to understand that claims are not the only factors that affect premiums. However, it is one of the factors, but there are other factors such as nature of policy, model of the vehicle, etc. Therefore, it is not a surety that your premium will or will not change after you file a claim.

If it is found that oversight was made on your part, then the insurer may ask you to pay the excess amount. The insurer will not disburse the amount for your bike or two-wheeler if the repairing expense exceeds the actual value. Please note that you cannot claim for the insurance if you go to the local garage that is not approved by the insurer. The insurance is valid for the vehicles that are damaged because of an accident or natural disasters. The insurance is not for the damage that is caused intentionally.
