Life is uncertain and unpredictable. One can only take a positive measure to deal with unpleasant situations. Therefore, the concept of “insurance” is introduced to mitigate risks and provide protection. Insurance is the main way to manage life risks. Today there are various types of insurance policies that can protect the people you love and the things you love. In a life insurance policy, if the insured person dies, the insurance will compensate the insured person’s family with a certain amount of money. When choosing the right insurance plan, you will be spoilt for choice because there are various insurance companies on the market that offer many unique plans.

Protection is the basic expense that a person must pay in order to obtain the fate of his family. In fact, even a financial adviser recommends that you protect your profits before you start making financial arrangements. For different reasons, protection is an important requirement. The following are some of the reasons:

Protection provides you with money security and well-being net: If something goes wrong with the baker in the family, the financial situation of the family may come to a standstill. Protection remuneration can be converted into a family income to balance funds. With protection, when you are nowhere to be found, your family can be protected under any circumstances.

Insurance protects you and your family’s future goals: The sudden death of the breadwinner may have the most serious impact on the financial stability of the family. With insurance, your family can achieve financial stability even if you are not around. In addition, their future financial goals will remain unchanged.

Insurance encourages saving: Life insurance companies provide a variety of products, not only providing life insurance, but also providing terms that create wealth to achieve future goals. The requirement to regularly invest in such products encourages savings. For example, donation plans, refund plans, unit-linked investment plans, etc.

Insurance is an effective risk management tool: Insurance covers uncertainties such as risk of death, risk of injury, illness, etc. Insurance is about effectively managing these risks. Every insurance policy provides protection against underwriting risks.

Insurance gives you peace of mind: Since insurance can effectively manage risks, you can only pay for insurance regularly and stay stress-free. Peace of mind is what you get through insurance.

Car insurance can help you reduce the financial obligations that may arise from unfortunate events involving cars (such as road accidents, fires, thefts, natural disasters, etc.). According to Indian car tariffs, the law requires every car owner to have at least a third-party car insurance in order to drive their car/vehicle on Indian roads. Currently, there are 25 insurance companies in India that provide auto insurance.

How to choose the best car insurance company in India?

1. Cashless garage network: Auto insurance companies cooperate with many garages to facilitate cashless insurance claims. When choosing a car insurance company, be sure to check the strength of the insurance company’s cashless garage network. You must also check if there are enough cashless garages near his/her area.

2. Claim ratio: The claims ratio represents the number of claims resolved by the auto insurance company in all claims received in a fiscal year. It is always good to choose an insurance company with a high odds ratio.

3. Availability of add-ons: Additional insurance refers to additional insurance that can be selected through the standard auto insurance policy to expand the insurance coverage. Additional insurance can be used for self-damage and comprehensive auto insurance plans, and can be selected at the time of policy purchase and renewal.

4. Customer Support Service: The availability and quality of customer support services provided by insurance companies must also be checked. Some insurance companies provide 24*7 customer support, while others provide 5-day customer assistance services.
