General Insurance

There are times when we face challenges in life and do not know what to do. Sometimes life takes a turn for the worst when you least expect it to. Your hard-earned money, which you saved for something special, is then spent in settling hospital bills or someone else’s dues.
Events such as hospitalisation, burglary, natural disasters, car theft, riots etc. can negatively affect finances wither for business or in a family. It is in times like these that you wish for a protection that helps from the harshness of such events. General insurance acts as a blanket in all the above mentioned cases.
Bandhan Bank Limited solicits general insurance products as a Corporate Agent of Bajaj Allianz General Insurance Company Limited (BAGIC) and New India Assurance Company Ltd.(NIACL), which offers a wide range of general insurance solutions that are designed to fit every need, every pocket and every situation. These insurance products span across the following segments:

 

Car Insurance

An accident can happen at any moment. Protection offered by third party and comprehensive insurance coverage can be availed instantly with minimum paperwork. Secure your car against natural calamities and accidents with our car insurance policies that come with varied benefits. Avail additional facility of cashless services at a wide network of garages across the country. To know more of the benefits, you may please speak to our officials at the branches.

 

Home Insurance

Home is where our heart lives along with our family. Natural or man-made disaster sometimes strike this peaceful abode. That’s why it makes sense to protect this priceless asset with home insurance. You can insure the structure and/ or the contents of your home. The policy ensures that your home is protected against natural and man-made calamities, fire damage and allied perils.

 

Travel Insurance

Going on an international holiday/ trip, is something that we look forward to and plan in advance. However, any amount of preparation cannot prepare you for the unexpected, if it happens. So, it is always better to go armed with travel insurance. Available as a single trip or multi-trip plan, this insurance policy protects the insured from medical emergencies, baggage loss, passport loss, trip cancellation and even trip delays.

How Insurance Renewals Work?
Benefits from an insurance policy can be obtained only until the time it does not expire. Hence, it is extremely important to ensure that your policy does not lapse. This ensures the continuity of coverage and protects you against unforeseen risks. In addition, the No Claim Bonus (NCB), if any also gets carried forward. Register for an auto renewal option with your Bandhan Bank account at the time of taking the policy and ensure that the account is sufficiently funded. The required premium amount will be debited from your account to ensure that the policy continues without any hassle.
