    Cholamandalam MS Car Insurance FAQs

    1. Should I buy a comprehensive or a third-party liability cover for my car?

      If you have a high-end expensive car, it is best to buy a comprehensive insurance cover as the cost of repairs post a mishap would be high for such cars and comprehensive cover gives you and your car an overall protection. In case your car is old or second-hand, you could get a third-party liability cover instead of a comprehensive cover as the cost of repairs post a mishap would be minimal for such cars.
