Editor's Rating

4.0/5.0

Liberty General Insurance offers benefits that are useful for bike owners that share their bike with other people or have passengers. For instance, the rider can opt for an add-on that protects an unnamed passenger that is also on the vehicle. Another benefit that protects other riders include roadside assistance (4 times every policy term). However, it may not be a viable option for people on a budget, since premiums are approximately 52% - 64% more expensive than the average comprehensive plan in India.

Liberty Insurance Two-Wheeler Comprehensive Annual Plan

Liberty Insurance Comprehensive two-wheeler plan is an expensive option that is best suited for those who are frequently riding with another rider. We found that it is approximately 52% - 64% more expensive than the average in India, making it one of the more expensive insurance plans on the market. In terms of benefits, you'll receive accidental damage coverage, third party coverage, third party losses, theft coverage, fire related damage coverage, man made disaster coverage and natural disasters coverage.

The plan also provides riders with plenty of add-ons such as Zero Depreciation Cover, Coverage for Other Occupants, Roadside Assistance, Consumables Cover, and Engine Protection. These add-ons can be especially useful for families who share a bike, since they provide reassuring benefits for things like covering engine damage and roadside assistance, where you can feel secure knowing that whoever is riding your bike will get help during an emergency.

Thus, while we don't recommend this plan for people who are looking for rock bottom prices, Liberty General's two-wheeler plan will prove useful for wealthier riders who are interested in all-inclusive coverage that will help protect all their riders.
