SBI Zero Depreciation Cover FAQ

  • What is Depreciation?

    Depreciation is the continuous loss of value of a asset with time. Your car, just like any other asset, is also subjected to depreciation with a pre-decided rate.
  • Should I file a claim if my car got minor dents in an accident?

    It is highly recommended not to lodge claims for minor damages. You can file a maximum of two claims with Zero Dep add-on cover during the policy term.
  • I have purchased the Zero Dep add-on, will I get full claim now?

    No. This is because the Zero Dep add-on cover only exempts you from paying the depreciation amount of your car. You will still be liable to pay for the things that are not covered under your policy.
  • How can I know the quote for a comprehensive car insurance policy with Zero Dep add-on cover?

    Adding covers increases the premium amount accordingly. To know the premium of a policy with Zero Dep cover, visit and select SBI General car insurance policy along with Zero Dep add-on. Click on ‘get a quote’ to get the desired results.
  • Is there any way to calculate the depreciation of my car?

    You don’t need to worry about the calculations. Entire assessment is done by SBI General and you will be informed about all details. However, you only need to know the depreciation rate and age of your car to do the necessary calculations.
