Place where you live really matters when it comes to paying insurance premiums. If you live in a metro city, you will attract a higher premium. On the other hand, if you live in a village, you have to lower premium.

Manufacturer and Model

Insurance companies have a data prepared for each model and type of vehicle. Each model has a certain claim with the car insurance company.


Policy type

From the two types of policies available, third-party coverage only extends to the affected third-party in case of mishaps. Whereas, the comprehensive car insurance policy secures own damage from natural calamities, theft and much more. Therefore, the third-party policy is much cheaper than comprehensive one.
