Oriental Zero Depreciation Add-on

During a claim settlement, an insurance company deducts the depreciation amount applicable on the insured’s car, thereby reducing the claim amount. However, a car insurance policyholder can get a complete cover including the depreciation cost by purchasing a zero depreciation cover with a comprehensive/standalone own damage car insurance policy.

Oriental Zero Depreciation Add-on Benefits

Higher Claim Amount: The zero depreciation add-on cover exempts the policyholder from bearing the cost of depreciation. Thereby enabling him/her to get higher claim amounts.

Multiple Claims: Like most of the other car insurance companies, Oriental General Insurance allows up to 2 zero depreciation claims.
