If you are buying motor insurance in India for the first time, you may be baffled by the various types of insurance coverage available in the market. Besides mandatory car insurance policies like third party liability and comprehensive car insurance, you can opt for several top-up covers or riders that can help you cover a wide variety of risks. Such  add-ons include No Claim Bonus (NCB) Protection, Loss of Personal Belongings, Quick Road Assistance, Return to Invoice, and Key Replacement.*
No Claim Bonus
No Claim Bonus (NCB) is a reward offered on insurance premiums for not making a claim during the policy period. The No Claim Bonus (NCB) can be earned for each claim-free year.*
Briefly, NCB is a reward offered by your Motor Insurance provider for not making any claim in the preceding year. It ranges between 20 and 50 per cent and is calculated as a percentage of the own-damage premium. If you are purchasing a Car Insurance policy for the first time, there will be no accumulated NCB.

Zero Depreciation Add-On Cover
The zero-depreciation car insurance cover is one of the most sought-after motor insurance add-on covers. Policyholders should opt for the "Zero Depreciation" add-on cover to ensure that depreciation is not deducted from the claim amount. If you choose a standard comprehensive policy without  zero depreciation coverage, your insurer will pay out based on the "current market value" of your vehicle.*
However, nothing comes for free and this is true for add-on covers also. If you wish to take advantage of a Zero Depreciation policy, you will need to pay an additional premium of 15-20% over and above the basic premium. Despite being costly, zero depreciation covers are attractive to most customers because of the peace of mind that accompanies them.*

With this add-on cover, the chances of a policyholder having to pay depreciation expenses out of their pocket decrease when a claim is filed.*
  • Enhanced Protection: Adding a zero depreciation add-on cover to your car insurance plan will increase your protection. The policyholder receives enhanced coverage for a  slight increase over and above the premium paid for standard car insurance.*
  • Peace of Mind
    Families invest a large sum of their savings in buying a car. Complete financial security of the car against any damages including depreciation through a zero depreciation add-on cover enables car owners to have peace of mind to enjoy their cherished investments.*

"to avoid high maintenance costs due to the high cost of spare parts and the high rate of depreciation"

Should be corrected to high " accident damage repair cost" . People would think that this add-on cover will take care of their overpriced maintenance expenses for luxury cars.
