    What Is Theft Cover?

    As evident in its name, theft cover is an optional add-on benefit cover which can be purchased along with comprehensive cover. This insurance cover will cover the cost of the bike in case of theft or burglary. This basically provides protection in case there was a burglary or theft by mischief. If the bike was purchased through a financier and the loan repayment is still pending, the insurer will repay the loan that is the cost of the bike, but the interest rate or any sort of difference amount will have to be paid by you. Yes, it is true this is the benefit of buying a comprehensive policy which also covers theft loss and the add-on just is an icing on the cake.
