How Comprehensive Bike Insurance Premium Calculated?

The bike insurance premium of a comprehensive bike insurance policy is determined by computing the following elements.

  • The ‘Insured Declared Value’ of the bike

The ‘Insured Declared Value’ (IDV) of your bike is the maximum sum that your insurance provider can pay you in the event of the total loss of your bike, including irreparable damage and thefts. Your bike’s IDV is calculated by adding its price with the cost of the relevant accessories. You can compute your bike’s IDV by deducting the depreciation accumulated on it and its accessories from the aforementioned price.

  • ‘No Claim Bonus’ (NCB) and other discounts

The NCB table in the preceding section sheds light on the computation of the accurate NCB discount on your comprehensive bike insurance premium. By using the aforementioned table, you can determine the NCB discount that should be taken into account while computing your new bike insurance premium along with any other discounts offered by your insurance provider. It is important to remember that the NCB discount is only applicable on the own damage component of your bike insurance premium.

  • The third-party cover

The third-party bike insurance cover of your Tata AIG policy is determined on the basis of the bike’s engine cubic capacity and in accordance with the annual insurance premium rates declared by the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (IRDAI). Therefore, you must check the prevailing rates to ascertain your bike third-party insurance cover.

  • The premium of add-ons

Each add-on that you include to your comprehensive bike insurance policy has a bearing on the overall bike insurance premium. Therefore, you must ascertain the cost of each add-on or the aggregate cost of all the selected add-ons.

Factors That Determine Comprehensive Bike Insurance Premium

Here are the main factors that determine the bike insurance premium of a comprehensive bike insurance policy. To know more bike insurance premium, check our resource on bike insurance premium calculator

  • The ‘Insured Declared Value’ (IDV) / the market value of the bike

The IDV of your bike is its market value after accounting for depreciation. Since there is no depreciation accumulated on a new bike, the IDV of a new bike is higher than that of an old bike. Your bike’s IDV is the highest sum that an insurer can provide you in the case of irreparable damage or theft of the bike. While purchasing bike insurance, you are required to enter your bike’s IDV. The higher the IDV/market value of your bike, the higher is the corresponding bike insurance price.

  • The age of the bike and the bike’s owner

The age of your bike has a significant bearing on the comprehensive bike insurance premium. Generally, new bikes have a higher premium as compared to old ones. Since the depreciation accumulated on old bikes reduces their ‘Insured Declared Value’, the corresponding bike insurance policies have a lower premium.

The age of the owner of a bike also affects the bike insurance price. Drivers who are 25 years of age or below are considered high-risk drivers from an insurance point of view. Therefore, the bikes owned by the aforementioned age group of buyers tend to have a higher bike insurance premium.

  • The make, model, variant, and fuel type of the bike

Bikes that are expensive and high-end usually have a higher bike insurance premium in comparison with low and medium-budget bikes since the former category of bikes has a high maintenance and component replacement cost. Furthermore, the fuel type of your bike also affects its insurance premium.

Bikes that run on petrol tend to attract a low bike insurance premium as compared to diesel-run bikes that require a higher degree of maintenance. The high cost of the spare parts of most diesel-run bikes also enhances their insurance premium. CNG-powered bikes also have a high bike insurance cost.

  • Registration Location

Your comprehensive bike insurance premium is likely to be high if your bike has been registered in a metropolitan city or a high-risk and high-traffic area. On the other hand, bikes registered in remote towns and villages which generally have a low incidence of road accidents tend to have a low bike insurance price.

  • Manufacturing Year

The manufacturing year of your bike is significant from an insurance perspective since it determines the age of the bike and the depreciation accumulated on it which, in turn, is important in the computation of the bike’s ‘Insured Declared Value’. Since the depreciation accumulated on a bike decreases its IDV, the corresponding bike insurance premium also gets reduced.

Therefore, old bikes generally have a lower comprehensive bike insurance price than their newer counterparts. When you buy bike insurance online, the online bike insurance premium calculator takes your bike’s manufacturing year into account.

  • Discounts

There are several discounts available on your comprehensive bike insurance premium. For instance, having an Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) approved anti-theft device installed on your bike makes you eligible for a discount on your bike insurance price owing to the added layer of security for the bike. Furthermore, if you are a member of the Automobile Association of India (AAI), you can receive a discount on your bike insurance premium.

  • No Claim Bonus (NCB)

The ‘No Claim Bonus’ in your comprehensive bike insurance policy is a reward for zero claims during a particular year. If you have an NCB accumulated on your bike insurance policy and renew your policy on a timely basis, you can receive a discount on your new bike insurance premium. After the first claims-free year, you earn an NCB discount of 20% and after five consecutive claim-free years, you are eligible for an NCB discount of 50%. Therefore, an NCB can help you reduce your bike insurance price.

How To Reduce Bike Insurance Premium?

Here is how you can reduce your bike insurance premium:

  • Drive sensibly and earn a No Claim Bonus

It is important to drive safely and follow all the traffic rules to ensure your as well as others’ security whilst on the road. If you are a sensible and responsible driver, your insured bike is significantly less vulnerable to accidents, thereby reducing your need to file a bike insurance claim. By doing so, you can earn a ‘No Claim Bonus’ and secure a discount of 20% on your comprehensive bike insurance policy renewal. The aforementioned discount can go up to 50% if you don’t file a bike insurance claim for five consecutive years.

  • Opt for a reasonable IDV of your bike

You must ascertain the IDV of your bike carefully since it has a direct bearing on your comprehensive bike insurance price as well as the amount you receive from your insurer in the event of the total loss of your bike. Quoting a lower IDV will reduce your bike insurance coverage whereas quoting a higher one will lead to a higher than necessary bike insurance premium. Therefore, it is important to choose the accurate IDV for your bike.

  • By Gaining Discounts

One of the ways through which you can reduce your comprehensive bike insurance premium is by gaining discounts. Tata AIG offers a discount of up to 75% on online bike insurance policies. Furthermore, if you become a member of the Automobile Association of India (AAI), you can get discounts on your bike insurance price. You can also gain discounts on your bike insurance premium by installing ARAI-approved anti-theft devices on your bike.

  • Drop all the unnecessary bike insurance add-on covers

You must ensure the inclusion of only the required add-on covers in your comprehensive bike insurance policy since each add-on carries a price that increases your bike insurance premium. Therefore, it is pivotal to assess your bike insurance requirements before selecting the necessary add-ons. You can determine the impact of each add-on feature on your bike insurance price by using our bike insurance calculator.

  • Renew your policy before its expiry date

Ensure that you complete your comprehensive bike insurance renewal at least a few weeks before the expiration of the policy. The aforementioned approach ensures that you do not lose the ‘No Claim Bonus’ accumulated on your previous policy and also enables you to have sufficient time to re-evaluate the add-ons you want to include in your new policy.

  • Try to raise no claim for minor expenses arising out of an accident
