    Kotak Zero Depreciation Add-on

    Like every other asset, you car loses its value with an increase in its age owing to general wear and tear. This devaluation is called depreciation. It does not only reduces the market value of your vehicle but also affects your claim amount. This is because, your insurer factors the depreciation cost of the parts replaced at the time of repair of the vehicle. However, you can do away with this liability of depreciation cost by purchasing a zero depreciation add-on cover from Kotak General Insurance.

    Kotak Zero Depreciation Cover FAQs

    • I have an imported Lamborghini. Can I avail the Zero Depreciation add-on cover?

      No. Imported cars and all such vehicles whose parts are not available in the Indian market are ineligible for the Kotak General zero depreciation insurance cover.

    • I have opted for the zero depreciation cover. Will I have to pay anything now during the claim settlement?

      The zero depreciation add-on cover only spares you from paying the depreciation cost of the replaced parts. However, the liability of compulsory deductible and voluntary deductible (if opted for) rests with the policyholder.

    • What is the premium for the zero depreciation add-on cover?

      The premium of the zero depreciation add-on cover depends on the Insured Declared Value (IDV) of your vehicle. It is directly proportional to the IDV, which means higher the IDV, higher the zero depreciation premium and vice versa.

      You can include the Zero Depreciation cover to your plan by visiting the website of Kotak car insurance or by contacting them at toll-free number 1800-266-4545.
