What is OD Only – Private Car Insurance

it provides a only one-year own damage (OD) premium Coverages .

OD Only – Private Car Insurance provides coverage for damages to your car (Own Damage) caused by accidents, theft, fire, natural disasters, and other perils. Unlike a comprehensive policy, it does not include coverage for third-party liability. This means it does not cover damages or injuries caused to third parties or their property. OD Only policy is suitable for older cars or when third-party liability is covered separately, such as through a long-term third-party insurance plan. It offers cost-effective protection for your car, ensuring you receive compensation for damages without worrying about third-party legal liabilities.

⛦ Example Scenario:
In the case of Rahul’s car accident in Shimla, where his car was washed away in a flood, his Comprehensive Private Car Insurance policy proved to be immensely helpful. The incident was immediately reported to the insurance company, and a surveyor was assigned to assess the damage. As the policy covered damages from natural disasters, the insurance claim was accepted. The car was towed to an authorized garage for repairs, and the insurance company settled the repair bills directly, relieving Rahul from financial burden. The incident highlighted the significance of having a reliable car insurance policy to protect against unforeseen events and ensure peace of mind for Indian car owners.
