IFFCO Tokio Car Insurance Claim FAQs
How much amount will I get in claim settlement?
The claim amount depends on a number of factors such as the type of policy purchased, add-on covers, deductibles, the extent of damage, etc. The insurer pays the full IDV of the vehicle as the claim amount in case of total constructive loss of your vehicle, i.e., when your vehicle gets at least 75% damaged.

What should I do in case of theft of my car? How and when do I get a claim in such a case?
In the case of theft of a vehicle, you need to register an FIR (First Information Report) at the nearest police station and inform your insurer. The police will try to trace your vehicle until 90 days after which the police will issue a non-traceable report for your vehicle. The matter will then proceed to a court of law which will issue a Non Objection Certificate (NOC). Post NOC issuance, the insurer undertakes an investigation from its side to trace the vehicle. In case the insurer is not able to find the vehicle, the claim settlement process gets initiated.
I have a zero depreciation add-on cover. Do I need to pay anything during claim settlement?
The zero depreciation add-on cover exempts you from the liability to pay for the applicable depreciation on your car and its parts. However, you remain liable to pay for deductibles - compulsory and voluntary (if opted for).
