Royal Sundaram Motor Insurance FAQs:

  1. What is a break in insurance?

    As per the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, all vehicle owners are supposed to buy a minimum level of insurance protection for their vehicles. This is referred to as the third-party liability insurance. If the insurance of a car lapses due to non-renewal, there is effectively a break in insurance. In case you are in such as situation, you should do the following:

    • Approach the insurer and renew the policy. You can also choose another insurance company at the time of renewal.
    • If the policy has been in lapsed status for more than 90 days, get a new insurance policy.
    • You will have to get your vehicle inspected in both the cases above.
  2. I am planning to install an LPG/CNG kit in my car. Will the Royal Sundaram motor insurance policy cover it?

    If you have a comprehensive motor insurance policy, you should inform the insurer about the change. Royal Sundaram will then attach an endorsement to your motor insurance policy to include coverage for the LPG/CNG kit.

  3. Can I cancel my policy during the policy term?

    Yes, this is possible. You will have to inform the insurer about your intention to cancel the insurance. You should ensure that there is a 7-day notice period for the same. The company will cancel the policy and refund the premium on a pro-rata basis. Cancellation is allowed as long as there are no claims under the plan.

  4. What determines my motor insurance premium?

    The insurer calculates motor insurance premium for a customer based on the following factors:

    • Insured Declared Value (IDV)
    • The vehicle’s cubic capacity
    • Geographical zone where the vehicle was registered
    • Age of the vehicle

    Royal Sundaram considers Ahmedabad, Chennai, Bangalore, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Pune, and New Delhi to be in Zone A. The rest of India is considered as Zone B.

  5. What are compulsory and voluntary deductibles?

    You can choose to pay a part of the claim amount by opting for the voluntary deductible facility. If you do so, you will save between 15% to 35% on your motor insurance own-damage premium.

    The compulsory deductible amount is a value that the customer will have to mandatorily pay when raising a claim. This is a fixed amount based on the engine capacity of the vehicle.
