Read this article to find out how you can purchase car insurance for your family car online.

In India, unlike in Western countries and wealthy sub-continental households, owning a car is primarily a family affair. Individual cars are not usually owned by members of the Indian middle class. They have what is known as a family car. They travel in it as a group, and it is driven by several people. One thing is obligatory whether you own a family car or a car that is primarily used by a single person: car insurance. Vehicles driven on Indian roadways are required by law to be insured with a motor insurance policy. Therefore, to suit the needs of Indian families, most insurance companies categorize insurance plans. In this article, you can read about how you can buy a car insurance policy for your family car.

What Is Considered As A Family Car?

There is no single definition of a 'Family Car.' It can be thought of as a vehicle that a family uses to travel together. They can use it to visit relatives, go shopping, go on a road trip, and so on. Such vehicles can also be used by different members of the family at different times, depending on their suitability. A Family Car is difficult to classify as a hatchback, sedan, or Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV). A family can have a separate hatchback for the office worker and a large SUV for family outings. A conservative family, on the other hand, might only have one hatchback or sedan. As a result, the utility of a car is used to define its category.
