Third-party two-wheeler insurance is required under the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988 for all the two-wheelers operating on Indian highways. It covers third-party obligations that may occur as a result of an accident involving the insured two-wheeler. Third-party insurance coverage will not cover the damages to your bike. As a result, you should get comprehensive two-wheeler insurance coverage. It will cover the insured bike's losses or damages in the event of a mishap, such as theft, collision, earthquake, tsunami, riot, and vandalism, in addition to the necessary third-party liabilities.
How To File For ICICI Lombard Bike Insurance Claim?
Before knowing the details of how to file a bike insurance claim, it's important to understand the two sorts of claims:
1. Cashless Claim: Some insurance companies enable policyholders to get their bikes repaired without having to pay upfront. The only stipulation is that the bike is transported to one of their participating garages. Cashless claims are those in which the insurer pays the garage owner directly to have a bike fixed.
2. Reimbursement Claim: If a bike insurance policy does not include cashless benefits, the policyholder is responsible for paying for repairs out of pocket. He or she can, however, submit a claim with the insurance company and be reimbursed for the charges later. Reimbursement claims are those in which the insurer pays the policyholder the approved amount.
