      My previous car insurance provider was from Oriental insurance. The insurance policy was good enough but premium amount was a bit high as compared to other policies. I would rate this policy as average, since there are more policies available in the market with good options.

      "Process is good. IDV can be better "
      0.5 4.0/5 "Great!"
      Earlier I used Oriental insurance. It was a better process where they would come to the office and brief me about the details and collect the cheque. It was a offline process for the car insurance. I did not renew my policy this time from them as the IDV is not up to the mark.
