Where To Get Vehicle Insurance From - Online/Agency Or Agents?



“So after depreciating against the IDV, looking at your history of NCBs and accounting for CGST, SGST and service tax, your premium amount for the renewal of your vehicle insurance will be….”


As your vehicle insurance agent does his maths and delivers the verdict, you can’t help but be worried about the staggering figure and worse still, you don’t have the faintest clue as to what any of those abbreviations (except GST of course) stand for.

Buying Vehicle Insurance: Online vs Agents


Though we spend most of our waking lives on the Internet these days, we Indian still like to feel, touch and buy. What we fail to realize is that buying vehicle insurance online is the most direct and hassle-free way of getting our dear vehicle insured.


Companies are more than happy to offer lower premiums to customers who avail their online services because they don’t have to worry paying commissions to their agents and sorting out paperwork. Also, you can get secure payments done almost instantly while agents may require at least 2 – 3 working days to process your payment.

However, if insured buys policy online through a third-party website does mean that during the time of claim settlement, they need to proceed without the personal customer service offered by the agents and brokers. They might offer you a lower quote in a situation, but the time taken for claim settlement and the absence of claim support isn't worth the discount.


That's where Auto Caretakers, as an insurance agent partnered with HDFC ERGO, brings you the benefit of both! You can have your dear vehicle insured only by submitting 2 documents (RC Copy & PYP) not only hassle-free but with the right consultancy and claim support.
