Edelweiss Zero Depreciation Cover

Like every other commodity, your car is also subject to depreciation. It is the decrease in the value of the car due to age and regular wear and tear. Depreciation not only lowers down the vehicle’s market value but also affects the amount which you receive at the time of claim settlement. If a policyholder does not have the coverage of the zero depreciation add-on along with the comprehensive policy, then the insurer is not liable to bear the cost of depreciation for the replaced parts of the insured vehicle. As a result, the policyholder gets lower claim amounts during the claim settlement.

The purchase of the Edelweiss Zero depreciation add-on cover will ensure that the company will reimburse or indemnify the depreciation charges for your vehicle and its parts. This add-on cover also helps policyholders to get higher claims without deducting the depreciation of the vehicle.

Benefits Of Edelweiss Zero Depreciation Insurance

Higher Claim Amounts: The zero depreciation add-on cover purchased along with the regular comprehensive car insurance policy allows policyholders to enjoy higher claim amounts. The cover shifts the liability of the depreciation costs from the insured to the insurer which means that Edelweiss will be liable to bear the cost of depreciation.

Multiplicity of Claims: A policyholder can claim the benefits of the Edelweiss zero depreciation cover up to 2 claims during the duration of a policy period.
