First, let’s look at the types of Kotak Mahindra vehicle insurance claims.

Types of Motor Insurance Claims

Kotak Mahindra Cashless Claim: You bring your vehicle to a network garage for repairs when you file a cashless claim. Kotak Mahindra will pay the garage directly in this situation. You only have to pay your deductible.

Kotak Mahindra 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, 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.  You can take your vehicle to any workshop of your choice. Be sure to maintain all the repair bills accurately.
