Scooty insurance is an essential protection for all scooty owners. It offers financial protection against any damages, accidents, or theft that may occur to your scooty. With scooty insurance, you can rest assured that you will not have to bear the financial burden of repairing or replacing in the event of an unfortunate incident.

Here, we will discuss the two main types of scooty insurance claims and the steps to making a scooty insurance claim.

Types of scooty insurance claims

There are primarily two types.

• Cashless claims:

In a cashless claim, the insurance company directly settles the bill with the service provider, such as a repair workshop, without the policyholder having to pay out of pocket and then seek reimbursement. This type of scooty insurance claim is only available if the policyholder uses the network garage of the insurance company.

• Reimbursement claims:

In a reimbursement claim, the policyholder pays for the repair or replacement of their scooty out of their own pocket and then seeks reimbursement from the insurance company. To make a reimbursement claim, the policyholder must first pay for the repairs and then submit a claim to the insurance company along with supporting documentation, such as bills and receipts. The insurance company will then process the claim and issue a reimbursement if the claim is approved.

Both cashless and reimbursement claims can be made in the event of an accident, theft, or any other covered event specified in the policy. The type of claim a policyholder can make will depend on the policy they have purchased and the terms and conditions set in that policy.
