Add-ons Available Under Universal Sompo Car Insurance Plans

Add-ons are additional coverage benefits which can be chosen voluntarily by paying an additional premium. Add-ons help increase the scope of coverage of the Car insurance policy. Universal Sompo Car insurance plans offer the following types of add-ons with the comprehensive policy:

Car insurance policies do not cover depreciation. At the time of the claim, the insurance company deducts the depreciation on different parts of the car thereby lowering your claim amount and leading to out of pocket expenses. In such an instance, the nil depreciation cover is beneficial. The add-on removes the deduction of depreciation and enhances the claim pay-out.

Daily cash allowance provides a daily allowance if your car is at an authorised workstation for the repair of damages if the claim is covered in the policy. If your car is at the service station for more than 3 days, you would get a daily benefit for up to 5 days.

The Insured Declared Value of the car insurance policy is paid if your car is stolen or is damaged beyond repairs. IDV is the market value of your car after accounting for depreciation. However, with the return to invoice add-on, you can claim the invoice value of your car provided that your car is not older than 5 years.

Engine protector add-on covers the expenses of replacement or repair of the engine parts due to consequential damages such as water ingression due to flood or leakage of lubricating oil.

Under this add-on, the sum insured is expressed as the difference between the IDV and the manufacturer’s selling price. This add-on, therefore, gives you a higher amount of coverage.

This add-on provides additional coverage for a named family member in case of accidental death or accidental permanent total/ partial disability in any accident involving the car.

This add-on provides coverage against assault or bodily injuries leading to permanent total disability or death in an accident whether you are travelling in the insured vehicle or not.

How To Raise A Claim Under Universal Sompo Comprehensive Car Insurance

The claim process is as follows

  1. Immediately inform the insurance company in the case of any claim. You can intimate the claim by informing the insurance company online or by calling on their toll-free number.
  2. The insurance company will then advise you to take your car to the nearest preferred garage.
  3. A surveyor would be sent by the insurance company at the garage who will check the damages caused to your car.
  4. Once the survey is done, the insurer would approve cashless claims after which the grace would start the repairs.
  5. After completion of the repair, the insurance company will settle the claim directly with the network garage and allow you to take the delivery of your car.
  6. A police FIR is required to be filed in case of third party claims. The third-party claim is handled by the Motor Accident Tribunals to calculate the liability involved in the claim. The insurance company will pay the third party claim based on the judgement of the tribunal.
