Royal Sundaram Zero Depreciation Add-on

Your car, just like any other commodity, loses value with age. This devaluation with time is known as depreciation. When you buy a car insurance policy, there is a condition, with which you need to comply. It is that the insurer will not bear the cost of depreciation while settling claims. This means that the insurance company will factor the depreciation from the claim amount and you would receive a lesser claim amount. Opting for a Zero Depreciation add-on cover from Royal Sundaram with its comprehensive policy protects you from the liability of bearing the cost of depreciation and enable you to claim a higher amount at the time of settlement.

Benefits of Royal Sundaram Zero Depreciation Cover

In lieu of an extra premium, a zero depreciation add-on cover offers you the following benefits:

  • Higher Claim Amount: Zero Depreciation add-on cover exempts you from bearing the cost of depreciation. It makes the company liable to sanction claims without the deduction of depreciation. This enables you to get a higher claim amount, which would not have been possible otherwise. Compared to the cost of availing this add-on, the claim amount is much more and makes the entire claim highly cost-effective.
  • Complete Coverage: With the zero depreciation add-on the insurer provides coverage for your car and all its parts at 100% except tyres, tubes and batteries for which the cover is provided at 50%.
  • Unlimited Claims: Unlike most of the other insurers, Royal Sundaram allows you to make an unlimited number of claims under the zero depreciation cover.
  • Free Consumable Add-on: Royal Sundaram offers free consumable add-on with the purchase of its zero depreciation add-on.
