Like every asset needs protection, even our homes require protection and the most reliable form of security is home insurance.

In this type of insurance, the insurer and the insured enter into a contract, as per which, the insurer is legally bound to pay an amount that will take care of the damages to property, in any untoward situation* that may occur.

The insurance cover is applicable in situations like fire and allied perils, burglary or break-in, loss of insured jewelry, appliances like refrigerator, washing-machines etc., sanitary fittings, personal baggage, personal accidents and legal liability to domestic servants.

There are a few exceptions to the policy and we believe in keeping our clauses transparent from Day 1. Under the following circumstances, no claim will be paid by Ideal Insurance.

Motor Insurance

Motor Insurance is driven by the phrase, “use it or lose it”. In India, more than 1200 road crashes occur every single day. Assuming that, you will follow the traffic rules and nothing wrong will ever happen is the mistake that can lead to a huge financial loss, unless your vehicle has an insurance coverage in place. While the Indian Law makes it mandatory to insure your vehicle against third party liability, it is prudent to have a comprehensive coverage. A comprehensive motor coverage empowers both the parties,involved in the accident, with coverage in case of loss. It helps restore the financial status to the state it was before the loss actually happened.

Motor insurance is a contact between a vehicle owner and an insurance provider wherein, the latter compensates for losses arising out of accidents, theft, third-party injuries or death. It could also cover personal injuries to you or your passengers.

Health Insurance

You can never be prepared enough for the unpredictability of life. Our current lifestyles, sudden health conditions can wreak havoc on our financials. This strain further leads to stress factors and then eventually lead to more health problems.

Today, health costs are rising at an alarming rate of 20% p.a. 80% of hospitalization expenses are covered by taking a loan or selling of assets. Penetration of health insurance in India is only 1.2 % as compared to 84% in the U.S. Also,we do not receive any form of Social security from the government. Keeping all of this in mind, we should insure our health today so that our health conditions do not drain out our savings.
