This article explores IFFCO TOKIO car insurance claims and IFFCO TOKIO vehicle insurance claims including how to file a claim, what will be the documents required, and what could be the possible reasons for rejection of the filed claim. First, let’s look at the types of IFFCO TOKIO vehicle insurance claims.
IFFCO TOKIO Cashless Claim:You bring your vehicle to a network garage for repairs when you file a cashless claim. IFFCO TOKIO will pay the garage directly in this situation. You only have to pay your deductible.
IFFCO TOKIO Reimbursement Claim: In case of a reimbursement claim for your damaged vehicle, initially, you have to bear the expenses for the repair out of your pocket. After verification of all related documents and repair receipts, the insurer will reimburse the incurred cost. In this type of claim, it is not obligatory to get your vehicle repaired at the insurer’s network garage.
Step 1: Intimation
The insurer should be notified right away if the vehicle is stolen, is involved in an accident, or is damaged in any way. To notify the insurer, you can go to the insurer’s nearest branch or visit the insurer’s official website.
Step 2: Submission of Documents
Submit the required documents online and a surveyor will be appointed to analyze the state of damages to the vehicle. A list of documents required to register the claim is provided further in this article.
Step 3: Survey
The insurance company's surveyor will evaluate the damage and repair costs after the claim is filed. Any additional costs incurred, i.e., damages to uninsured parts must be covered by the insured.
Step 4: Claim Settlement
In case of a cashless claim, the company will pay the approved amount directly to the network garage which will repair your vehicle. In case of a reimbursement claim, this approved amount is paid to the policyholder.
A voluntary deductible is a minimum amount that you choose to pay from the claim amount. The policyholder is required to pay the amount before the insurer contributes to the rest of the claim value.
In case of an accident or theft of your vehicle, you should file an F.I.R. as soon as possible.
Both systems have significant advantages, it is up to the policyholder to choose the one that is most suitable for the situation.
Yes. Firstly, notify the insurer immediately after the accident, and take your vehicle to the garage of your choice. Secondly, maintain all repair bills accurately. The insurer will settle the claim amount after verification.
