Zero depreciation: While claiming your motor insurance, you will get the depreciated value of the car. The amount reimbursed will never be in full. With a zero depreciation policy, you get the full amount which saves at least 30-40 percent of the losses.

Roadside assistance (RSA): Almost all insurers extend 24x7 RSA service in case your vehicle breaks down in the middle of the road. The services include changing flat tyres, jumpstarting the battery, refueling and even towing the car to the nearest authorized garage. RSA marginally increases your third-party insurance premium.

No claim bonus (NCB) protection: A policyholder is entitled to a NCB if he/she doesn’t submit claim during the policy tenure. The NCB is usually 20 percent of the policy premium for the next year. It can be accumulated over the years and reduces the premium significantly.

Engine protection: It reimburses the repairs carried out to the engine and its parts. Engine protection cover is useful in countries like India that have a lengthy monsoon.
