If you own a two wheeler, then having two wheeler insurance is essential.
In spite of vehicle insurance being mandatory under the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988, around 75% of bikers ride uninsured two wheelers.
Some just don’t want to invest further on their vehicle. While others have trouble in remembering renewal dates.
_That’s where a multiyear or a long-term two wheeler insurance policy jumps to your rescue._
While general two wheeler insurance plans are designed for one year and have to be renewed annually, a multi-year two wheeler insurance policy is unique. This policy allows two wheelers to be insured up to three years consecutively at one time. Policyholders don't have to renew the insurance contract each year as they receive a policy certificate for a maximum of three years cover.
