The Indian government regulates much of the insurance industry, so you need to put in a little time and effort to squeeze out every little bit of savings you can manage by shopping around for India auto insurance rather than settling for the first quote you are given.
Here are some more thoughts about what you should consider when getting car insurance quotes online in India or anywhere else, for that matter.
Although I don’t live in India, my state’s laws are similar to the
federal laws in India, so I’m going to use a personal example to help
explain the ins and outs of India auto insurance.
When I first needed auto insurance, which like most of us is when we begin driving, the big question on my mind was why does insurance cost so much more for me then it does for others?
What I didn’t understand was that the process for underwriting a policy, which is what happens when an insurance company says ‘yeah, we will insure you under these conditions,’ was that the companies used a very boring process of figuring out your chances of having a loss. While the actual process is beyond the scope of this article, we will go over the basics.
Let’s start with where we live. Like me, you are no doubt thinking ‘why would they care where I live?’ What the insurance companies have found is that certain areas tend to have higher or lower claims than others. While the reasoning for this can be almost anything, we must consider it when deciding where to live and work.
Which leads us to our next item of interest, how we use our vehicle and the type of vehicle we own. Driving to and from a work place may lower my rates while driving from coast to coast several times a month for work will probably raise my rates.
One reason will be that the more time I spend driving, the more likely I will find myself filing a claim. In the event I do file a claim, an insurance company is going to pay out various amounts to fix our vehicle. As many of us may realize on our own, not all cars are going to cost the same to fix. As such, the more a car costs to fix, the more it is going to cost to insure.
Ok, where I live and where I work affect my insurance premium, what else? As much as these two bother me, it’s simple - age and gender. The younger you are and your gender is going to change the amount you pay. Generally speaking, the older you are the less you pay.
Gender is an odd subject in the U.S. as recent studies have suggested that previous assumptions may no longer be accurate. Historically, young male drivers have always had to pay higher rates because they were considered more likely to have an accident. I would imagine the statistics would be similar when determining a car insurance rate India.
The most obvious item affecting what we pay is the vehicle we insure and in the amount of coverage. Expensive luxury automobiles and sports cars are almost always going to cost a lot more to insure, no matter what country you are in when purchasing insurance. If you are looking for cheaper car insurance, India drivers need to consider the value of their vehicle and purchase a car that is less costly to replace.
Regarding the amount of coverage you buy, in many states it is legal to purchase an extremely low amount of insurance which only covers property damage and personal injury. Assuming only my monthly budget, this is going to be much cheaper than insuring myself for higher amounts and other events that may occur such as severe weather. On the other hand, if I do have a claim, the latter may be cheaper as it will pay more to whoever is involved.
Also of consideration when filing for car insurance rate India, is the number of claims that you have had. If you have a documented history of costing insurance companies money, you can pretty much count on the fact that you are going to have a difficult time obtaining cheaper car insurance (India).
To briefly summarize, there are several things we need to consider as we try to understand our car insurance rate India. These range from where we live and what we do to our choice in cars, not to mention our driving habits and the coverage we elect to carry.
So knowing all these things, we can begin looking for cheaper car insurance in India. There are several Indian Insurance Companies offering car insurance quotes online, so take the time to research your quote.
Hope that helps you understand a little more of the basics about how to get a good car insurance rate India.
