Standalone bike insurance refers to an own damage bike insurance policy that covers the financial expenses only of your own vehicle against any damages and losses in an unfortunate event. The policy also covers the liability that arises not only due to collision but also for natural calamity, explosion, or even fire.

All this while, there were only two types of bike insurance. However, IRDAI recently introduced its own damage cover to help vehicle owners with existing third-party insurance cover their own vehicle's damages and losses. Therefore, it is advisable to go for Digit own damage bike insurance as it offers much more comprehensive coverage than third-party only insurance in exchange for a cheap and affordable standalone premium. Standalone premium refers to a cost you pay to get your bike insured against any financial loss that arises due to insured bike damage.

How does Digit Standalone Two Wheeler Insurance Policy Work?

Digit standalone two-wheeler insurance policy, also known as own-damage bike insurance, is more than what third-party-only insurance does for you.

This insurance policy covers the insured bike damage that may have occurred due to a road accident, theft, natural or man-made calamities, vandalism, etc.
