All car and two-wheeler insurance policies have definitive validity durations. Thus, it is important for the policyholder to renew the policy on time. Missing out on renewing or buying the policy might make the policyholder lose the benefits of the insurance policy, resulting in claims getting rejected. Additionally, driving/riding a vehicle without having insurance coverage can have severe legal repercussions too.

With global digitisation, policyholders can now easily check their vehicle insurance policy status online and avoid missing the policy renewal date. In addition, policyholders renewing their two-wheeler or car insurance policies on time can enjoy benefits such as a No Claim Bonus.

In case you miss out on renewing your insurance policy, certain insurance providers provide a policy renewal grace period too. Moreover, online provisions make buying and renewing vehicle insurance policies a breeze. Therefore, consumers do not need to panic. However, do remember that the grace period simply allows you to renew insurance without having to pay any penalty in the form of higher premiums. If your vehicle insurance renewal is delayed, no claims can be raised to the insurer during the lapsed time.
