BMW 8 Series Insurance Coverage

Third-party insurance: This is a standard car insurance policy and is mandatory by law in India. It pays for the damages inflicted upon a third-party individual or property because of a fault of the policyholder. 

Comprehensive insurance: A comprehensive insurance is an all-inclusive policy. It covers third-party damages and also includes protection from unforeseen losses arising from natural calamities, riots, thefts, fire and accidents.

BMW 8 SeriesAdd-On Covers

Zero depreciation: It’s also known as nil-depreciation cover. Such an add-on cover ensures that the policyholder gets full claim repairs carried out and/or parts changed. This add-on, however, is available only for cars up to three years old.

Roadside assistance (RSA): In case the car suffers a breakdown in the middle of a highway or a remote area, the RSA add-on cover can be of much help. RSA usually includes refuelling, changing flat tyres, minor on-spot repairs, and even towing service to the nearest authorized garage.

No claim bonus (NCB) protection: The NCB is a discount given by the insurer to the policyholder for making no claims during the policy duration. NCB can be accumulated over the years and the discount typically ranges from 20 to 50 percent of the own damage premium.

Engine protection: This cover ensures that you don’t end up burning a hole in your pocket for the hugely expensive engine maintenance work that may be required. This add-on cover comes of immense help during heavy rains. The insurer pays for the repair/replacement of all major engine parts and electrical components.
