Two-wheelers are abundant on the roads in our country and the chances of accidents are high. In many cases, people involved in an accident and liable to pay for damages claim they are from low backgrounds and cannot afford it. So the Government of India made it mandatory to have a basic third-party liability policy on all two-wheeler vehicles. Liberty General Insurance offers two package policies with different tenures.

The natural calamities covered include self-ignition or lightning, fire, explosion, flood, typhoon, earthquake, storm, hurricane, tempest, inundation, hailstorm, cyclone, frost, landslide and rockslide.
The two-wheeler insurance policy will also cover certain manmade disasters. These include theft, burglary, riot, strike, accident by external means, malicious act, terrorist activity, any damage in transit by air, rail, road, rail, inland waterway, lift, or elevator.

For any accidental damages caused to a third party, the insurance pays for any legal liabilities as per the provisions of the plan.

If you need to make a claim on your two-wheeler insurance policy, you can follow the steps below:
If you are eligible for cashless claims, you need to get your vehicle repaired at a network garage. The garage and the insurance provider will deal with each other directly. You will not be required to pay for any repairs up to the extent that the policy covers. Liberty General Insurance will settle the bill with the garage. A list of network garages can be found on the Liberty General Insurance website.
When you renew your policy on time, the process is hassle-free and much simpler. Once the policy expires, renewal might require additional inspections and other information before the insurer is satisfied to give you a policy. You can renew your policy online in a few simple steps.
When you take an insurance plan, the insurer might give you an option to choose your deductibles. Deductibles are simply the amount you are willing to pay if anything were to happen to your vehicle. The insurer will pay the rest. For example, if you opt for a 10% deductible, then you will be liable to pay for 10% of the damages caused to your vehicle or a third party. The insurer will only pay 90% of the cost, to the extent of the sum assured.
If you have missed the renewal date and your policy has lapsed, there are a few things you can do to remedy the situation. If your insurance policy expires, it is not legal to ride on Indian roads as per the prevailing motor laws. If something were to happen, you could end up paying high costs in damages to your own vehicle and to third-parties involved, including any damages to surrounding property. If you are riding with an expired insurance policy, it is punishable by law and you will be liable to pay a fine if you are caught. To be safeguarded against these expenses, it is advisable to renew your policy on time and always have a valid insurance plan for your two-wheeler. Furthermore,

During the policy term, if you do not make any claims, you will be entitled to a No-Claim Bonus. This bonus is given in the form of a discount on premiums. So if you have not claimed insurance, then when you renew your policy, your premium amount will be lesser. NCB accumulated by one person cannot be transferred to another person.
This cover provides the insured with the benefit of full financial protection in case of replacement of parts without taking into consideration any deductions for depreciation of their value.
The Insured Declared Value or IDV is basically the market value of your vehicle. When you purchase an insurance policy, the insurer will take into consideration the prevailing market value and then decide on the sum insured. IDV is important because if you choose a sum higher than the market value, you might end up paying higher premiums for no reason. If you choose a lower IDV, then your premiums come down but so will your insured amount.
