6 Factors that affect your Third Party Car Insurance Premium

1
Age of the Car
As your car gets older your premium amount increases, the reason being an older car is more prone to wear and tear. Opting for a Zero Depreciation cover with your insurance plan will help reduce your premium marginally.
2
Fuel Type
Insurance premium for cars that run on Diesel and CNG is more than the premium for cars running on petrol.
3
Value of the Car (IDV)
Insured Declared Value (IDV) is the one of the main component in determining the premium IDV is basically the current market value of car. If the current market value of the car is higher, the premium for its insurance will be more.
4
Car Safety
Another major factor affecting your car insurance premium is how safe your car is. Advanced safety features like airbags, ABS, collision warning systems, anti-theft alarms, and automatic braking make your car less susceptible to theft and accidents hence reducing the premium amount.
5
Geographical Location
Where you reside and park your car is also a factor that affects your car insurance premium. If you live in a region prone to vandalism or theft, your premium amount may be on the higher side to offset any potential losses.
6
Your Car Model
Your premium will vary based on how expensive your car is. More expensive cars with a higher engine capacity (exceeding 1500cc), like luxury sedans and SUVs, will have higher premiums, while base car models with lower engine capacity (below 1500cc) will have lower premiums.
