Bike insurance calculator

A bike insurance calculator is an effective tool for finding the premium payable under your bike insurance plan. The calculator calculates the premium of various different policies based on the details of the policyholder’s bike. The calculator, thus, helps policyholders compare the premium rates of different bike insurance plans and choose one plan which is the most suitable.

Factors affecting premiums of bike insurance policies

Though the calculator calculates the premium, there are certain factors which affect the premium of bike insurance policies. These factors include the following:

  • Make, model, variant of the bike – The make, model and variant of the bike affects the premium charged because it affects the value of the bike. The higher the value of the model, the higher would be the premium charged.
  • Year of registration – The year of registration of the bike determines the age of the bike. If the bike is old, its value would be low and so would the premium rate.
  • Location of registration – The location of the bike also determines the premium. Premiums are higher for metro cities compared to non-metro ones.
  • Type of policy selected – There are two types of bike insurance policies, comprehensive and third party. Third party plans have restricted coverage and so have a very low premium amount. Comprehensive plans, on the other hand, have a wider scope of coverage and so the premium is higher.
  • Add-ons selected – Comprehensive bike insurance policies offer additional c overage benefits. These benefits are optional and require additional premiums. If such add-ons are selected, the premium rate increases.
  • Bike modifications – Any modifications done to the bike increases the value of the bike and also the associated premium rate.
  • Discount – There are different types of discounts available in bike insurance plans. These discounts affect the premium rate.
