About Car Insurance in Lucknow
According to a 2015 survey, Lucknow, the capital of Uttar Pradesh, is the second happiest city in India after Chandigarh. With a unique blend of the comforts of a small town and the advantages of a big city, Lucknow is famous for its “tehzeeb” and “mehman nawazi”, or the courteous culture of the erstwhile Nawabs who once ruled the state. It is also known for its Chikan, or intricate embroidery work on garments, and its exquisite Awadhi cuisine like tundey kebabs. Apart from Mughal and Awadhi forts and palaces, the Lucknow Zoo, established in 1921, is one of the oldest in the country, while the Uttar Pradesh State Museum in the city’s center has artefacts dating back to the 3rd century.
Vehicle owners in Lucknow have various car insurance policies to choose from, including Liberty General Insurance’s bouquet of policies tailored to suit every need and budget. Several factors need to be considered before selecting a car insurance policy in Lucknow. While the law stipulates that a third party insurance policy is a must for any car, it is important to keep in mind that such a policy only covers damage to a third party, and not your vehicle or its driver and passengers.

Types of car insurance policies
Driving without a Third Party or Liability Only insurance policy is a punishable offence under the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988. This policy, however, only covers loss or damage suffered by a third party in case of an accident arising out of the use of the insured vehicle. Remember that it does not cover any loss or damage to the insured vehicle or to the insured.
Third Party Insurance
The Motor Vehicle Act of 1988 has deemed it mandatory to own third-party insurance. Driving without it is a punishable offence under the act. However, this policy only applies to third party damage, and does not cover damage to your own vehicle.
As the name suggests, this is an all-inclusive policy which offers complete coverage for loss or damage to the third party as well as to you in case of theft or an accident.
Own Damage (OD) Cover
This policy covers damage caused by fire, explosion, lightning, burglary or housebreaking or theft, riots and strikes, earthquakes (fire and shock damage), typhoons or floods, riots and malicious acts, terror activity, etc.
What Own Damage Insurance does not cover for your car?
- Damages to a third party vehicle (If you want coverage for both - own as well as third party damages then buy comprehensive Car insurance)
- Damage caused to a third-party property
- Injuries caused to other people in an accident
- Normal wear-and-tear of the vehicle
- Mechanical and electrical breakdown
- A vehicle being used other than in accordance with the limitations as to use. For example, if you use your Private car for commercial purposes.
- Damage to/by person driving without a valid driving license
- Loss or damage caused while riding under the influence of alcohol or any other intoxicating substance
- Consequential loss
Liberty General Insurance also offers various add-on covers which include depreciation cover, passenger assist, consumable cover, engine safe cover, Gap value cover, key loss cover, and roadside assistance cover.

Should I buy third-party or comprehensive car insurance?
Third-party car insurance is mandatory according to the Motor Vehicle Act of 1988. However, it is advisable to buy a comprehensive car insurance, as third-party car insurance only covers third-party liability, and any damage to your car will not be covered. You can choose one of several Liberty General car insurance policies that cater to your requirements to ensure that you don’t feel the pinch in case your car is damaged.
Why purchase car insurance online?
Buying a car insurance online allows you to consider various policies on offer and select the one which suits you from the comfort of your home or office. Apart from saving time and money, you often get discounts which are not available when you buy the policy offline.
What are add-on covers?
Add on covers, also known as add-on riders, are those covers that help you provide all-round protection to your car, over and above what your car insurance policy covers. You can choose from a wide range of add-on covers including:
- Depreciation cover
- Passenger Assist
- Consumables cover
- Engine safe cover
- Gap value cover
- Key loss cover
- Road-side Assistance cover
These riders are not a part of your insurance policy and you have to pay separate premiums to purchase them
