Third party or liability only policy is mandatory under the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988. Yet, there are many bike owners who do buy the policy but do not renew it. One of the main reasons that can be cited is the myths people believe in about bike insurance. However, the IRDAI and the insurance companies have made it all simple and have kept the interests of the insured in mind to make the process easy. Let us talk about some of the common myths and know what the facts actually are:

The insurance companies only require basic details and the insurance can be bought online from the comfort of your home or office.. Many people think they need to be very tech-savvy to buy the policy online. This is also not true, as only basic computer knowledge is required.
Lack of Assistance

All insurance companies today offer online assistance and 24 X 7 customer care service to answer all questions related to bike insurance. The representatives online or the ones in the offices of the companies are well equipped to handle all your queries and help in the best manner possible.
Online is Not Safe

This is because your personal information is never disclosed to anyone and is stored safely with the insurance company. All websites are secure and have their systems in place to ensure maximum protection against any kind of fraud.
