Two Wheeler Comprehensive Insurance

Comprehensive two wheeler insurance combines third-party bike insurance and own damage insurance into a single policy. It provides financial protection from any losses arising from a traffic collision, and also indemnifies the insured against any financial claims from third parties involved in an accident involving your bike. It also provides coverage against theft of your bike/ scooter and any damages resulting from causes other than a road accident including earthquake, floods, riots etc. You could also opt for a personal accident cover that compensates in case of disability or death on the insured in a road accident.

Reasons To Choose Two Wheeler Comprehensive Insurance

While a third-party two wheeler insurance cover is mandatory by law, you should consider getting a two wheeler comprehensive insurance policy as:

  1. It provides financial assistance of case your bike needs any repairs after an accident (big or small) or any other calamity
  2. It covers you against losing your two wheeler because of theft
  3. Maintaining your bike can be a significant expenditure, a good insurance policy ensures that this does not burn a hole in your pocket
  4. Based on the kind of cover you choose, paint touch up and dent repair may also be covered by the policy
  5. Access to cashless garages, ensuring that you do not have to pay anything out of your pocket when getting your bike repaired
  6. You would also get all the benefits of a third party bike insurance cover
  7. A peace of mind from the knowledge that someone has your back in case things go wrong on the road.

IDV & NCB For Comprehensive Two Wheeler Insurance

Two terms related to comprehensive two wheeler insurance that leave many new bike owners confused are IDV and NCB. Let us look at each of them in turn.


Insured Declared Value, or IDV for short, is the maximum amount that the insurer would pay in case of a claim. This amount payable only in the case of a total loss or an unrecoverable theft. Simply put, Insured Declared Value is the current market value of your bike.


The value of your two wheeler starts depreciating from the moment you buy it. For example, if the price at which your bike was listed at the time of purchase was ₹1lakh, the IDV based on the current schedule from IRDAI would be 5% less at any point in time in the first 6 months. That is to say, if your bike is in an accident that results in a total loss on the very first day the coverage start – the amount that you can claim would be ₹95,000 only and not ₹1 lakh for which you purchased it.


For purpose of depreciation, the life of a two wheeler is assumed to be five years. Therefore, the total price of the bike is depreciated over a period of five years. Typically, the depreciation is lowest when the bike is new and increases with every passing year.


No Claim Bonus or NCB is a way for the insurer to reward your good driving behaviour. It is a discount that you can avail on your comprehensive two wheeler insurance policy premium if you have filed no claims in the preceding policy period. This discount is available only in comprehensive two-wheeler policies and not on third-party bike insurance policy.


You can avail this discount only if there is no break in the policy at the time of renewal. If you choose to switch insurers at the time of renewal, the new insurer will have to honour the NCB accumulated with the previous insurer as well.


The discount offered as NCB rises with each claim free year. It is at 20% after the first year, 25% after the second, 35%, 45% and 50% for the next three years. The NCB is capped at 50% of the applicable two wheeler insurance premium.


Further, if you buy a new bike after three years of claim free insurance coverage for your existing bike – you would be eligible for the accumulated NCB on the coverage for new bike as well. If you sell your bike to someone else, the NCB would stay with you as it is not accrued to your vehicle. This also means that NCB cannot be transferred to another person.
