  • Documents Required for Two Wheeler Insurance Renewal

    Having bought your dream bike or scooter, you would want to ensure its safety and keep it in pristine condition. However, amid all the weaving through traffic and squeezing through the tightest of corners, there is a high chance of a dent there or a bit of paint coming off here. With trips to the garage or bodyshop becoming ever more expensive, what is a motorist to do?

    That’s where two wheeler insurance comes to the rescue. Not only does an insurance policy protect you from injury in the event of an accident, a comprehensive policy also reimburses you for any repairs your two wheeler might need.

    With two wheeler insurance made mandatory by the Indian government, all vehicles are to be registered and require a basic insurance policy to be able to ply on roads.

    So you’ve bought your insurance policy and being a two wheeler one, it is up for renewal.

    Renewing your insurance on time is extremely important as your coverage lapses the minute the policy expires. In the unfortunate event that you are involved in an accident or any untoward situation while riding, this could lead to unpleasant repercussions, especially if there is damage to a third party or third party property.

    Thus renewing two wheeler insurance on time is essential as it keeps you and your vehicle protected at all times.

    As the date of the insurance renewal approaches, there’s no need to run from pillar to post to fill up forms and get all your documents in order. Insurers have made provision for online policy renewal, making it easier for policyholders to renew their insurance policies wherever they are.

    When renewing your two wheeler insurance policy, simply visit the website of your insurer and follow the steps outlined to renew your insurance in a simple and hassle-free manner.
