    News About SBI Car Insurance

    • SBI’s take on boosting online car insurance sales

      In most developed nations, insurance firms have allied with credit info bureau and started correlating clientele risk profile and his credit behavior. According to Ms. Gunjan Ghai, SVP and national head, branding & marketing and product development, SBI General Insurance, this is not going to make data entry any easier, but helps immensely with underwriting. In case of car insurance, firms can take out data about the client and the car from motor registration department. Assimilating with UIDAI’s Aadhar database too can dodge setting in some of the basic customer info every time he/ she purchases an automobile insurance. Insurance providers are also looking for help from partner banks and this is exactly what happened with the SBI and their insurance branch. An SBI customer will soon be able to purchase insurance plans on the bank’s website.

      I am holding a car insurance with SBI and it is really good. I have lost my policy documents once I have called their toll free number for the same. The next day morning I was able to find that at my desk. More than all, I am getting benefits for passengers insurance which covers driver plus unnamed passengers also. The premium amount is less.

      I had very bad experience with SBI general insurance as just their procedures are too long and I have waited for two months to get reimbursement amount. Moreover I have paid from my pocket and followed that they paid later. I just opened the car insurance last month so it is new and no idea about cashless garages. This covers bumper to bumper so it includes plastic parts, I guess.
