Q-21 What if I have to make changes in the existing policy?
Ans- Any changes or alterations in the existing policy can be done by way of an endorsement. It is the comprehensive proof of an agreed change in the policy.
An endorsement may be issued at the time of issuing the policy to provide additional benefits and cover (e.g. legal liability to the driver) or to impose restrictions (e.g. accidental damage deductible).
The wordings of those endorsements are provided by the insurance company. An endorsement may also be issued subsequently to record changes such as change of address, change of name and change of car or two-wheeler model.
Q-22 What if at the time of accident my vehicle is driven by someone else?
Ans- Liability follows the vehicle. So, the insurance on the vehicle will apply even in the case of it being driven by some other person with the permission of the insured. Usually, the liability insurance of the person driving the vehicle will have to pay in the case the amount of the loss exhausts the policy limits of the insured.
Q-23 Is it possible to cancel my two wheeler insurance?
Ans-Yes it is. But then, claims should not be raised subject to 30 days prior to the expiry date of the policy. Then, even a refund cannot be raised. In fact, a nominal cancellation fee might also be charged in such a case. So it is not advisable to cancel an existing policy.
