Depreciation means a reduction in the value of assets due to their normal usage over time. A comprehensive policy only gives you the coverage of the depreciated amount of your assets which gets reduced. A policyholder wants to obtain full coverage against the original cost of his bike/scooter in an ideal insurance policy he obtains. 

SBI zero dep bike insurance is an add-on that allows you to claim the total amount of your two-wheeler; hence you need not worry about the cost of damages incurred against your two-wheeler in a mishap.

How does SBI Two Wheeler Insurance Zero Depreciation Cover Work?

You can add on the SBI zero dep bike insurance with both the standalone insurance policy and the comprehensive insurance policy. With the add-on, the entire amount of the damages incurred by the bike/scooter will be paid by SBI two wheeler insurance. You need to inform the insurance company as soon as possible after the accident. Once the company has approved your claim application, it will reimburse the total cost of the two-wheeler, which is way higher than its depreciated amount.
