Return To Invoice Cover (RTI) in Two Wheeler Insurance

Return To Invoice Cover (RTI) in Bike Insurance

Return To Invoice Cover - A standard bike insurance plan, be it a comprehensive plan or a standalone own-damage plan, provides you an insurance coverage for the own-damages sustained by your bike in case of mishaps such as road accidents, natural/man-made calamities, fire, theft, riots, etc.

In case of constructive total loss, i.e, when the insured’s bike is damaged beyond repair (more than 70% damage) or when the insured’s bike gets stolen, the insurer offers Insured Declared Value (IDV) of the bike as compensation. IDV refers to the market price of the insured’s bike less depreciation.

However, this IDV is lesser than the invoice amount which the policyholder had actually paid at the time of purchasing the bike. The invoice price includes registration charges as well as road tax charges in addition to the selling price of the bike.

When you opt for a Return To Invoice (RTI) bike insurance add-on cover, you can bridge the gap between the IDV and the invoice price. Return To Invoice cover, also known as Invoice Protection Cover, helps you to receive the invoice price and not the IDV as the claim amount. With this add-on clubbed with a comprehensive or standalone own-damage bike insurance plan, you can receive an amount equivalent to the on-road price of your bike in the case of total loss or theft.

Features of Return To Invoice Cover

  1. Like all other bike insurance add-on covers, Return to Invoice cover is available with comprehensive bike insurance plans and standalone own-damage bike insurance plans.
  2. This add-on costs around 10% more than standard comprehensive and standalone own-damage policy but helps the policyholder get registration charges, depreciation amount as well as road tax charges in addition to the selling price of the bike in case of total loss or theft.
  3. This add-on is applicable only if the insured’s bike is extremely damaged and is not in a usable condition. It is not applicable in case of minor damages.
