Return to Invoice Cover Add-on in Car Insurance Policy

Return to Invoice Cover for Car Insurance

Standard comprehensive as well as standalone own-damage plan provides you an insurance coverage for the own-damages sustained by the insured’s car in an unfortunate event including road accidents, natural/man-made calamities, fire, theft, riots, etc. The amount of compensation depends on the Insured Declared Value (IDV) of the insured’s car mentioned in the car insurance policy document.

When the cost of repair of the insured’s car is more than 75% of the IDV, the damage is termed as total loss.In case of a total loss, the policyholder is entitled to receive the IDV amount as compensation. However, this IDV is lesser than the invoice amount which the policyholder had actually paid at the time of purchasing the car. The invoice price includes registration charges as well as road tax charges in addition to the selling price of the car.

However, by opting for a Return To Invoice (RTI) car insurance add-on cover, the policyholder can bridge the gap between the IDV and the invoice price. Return To Invoice cover, also known as Invoice Protection Cover, helps the policyholder to receive a claim amount equivalent to the cost of your car mentioned in its invoice. With this add-on clubbed with a comprehensive or standalone own-damage car insurance plan, the policyholder can receive an amount equivalent to the on-road price of the car in the case of total loss.

Features of Return To Invoice Cover

  1. Available with comprehensive car insurance plans and standalone own-damage plans.
  2. Costs around 10% more than standard comprehensive/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 car in case of total loss.
  3. It is applicable only if the insured’s car is extremely damaged and is not in a usable condition. It is not applicable in case of minor damages.

​Who Should Opt For Return To Invoice Cover?

Ideally, the Return To Invoice cover should be opted by all car owner, however it is extremely important for the following people:

  1. People living in areas where car theft is common
  2. People do not have secure parking spaces
  3. People who travel for long distances regularly and are vulnerable to road accidents.
