Pune (Maharashtra): India witnesses close to five lakh road accidents every year. In 2017, around 25 per cent of the total number of road accidents reportedly occurred during work-related commute.
Travelling via crowded metro trains, local trains, or buses involves a high degree of risk. The same applies to travelling by cars or two-wheelers as you need to navigate your way through the busy streets in India. Even if you take the required precautions while travelling or adopt safe-driving practices, you cannot completely rule out the possibility of accidents or mishaps.
To provide you a safety net in case of an unfortunate accident Bajaj Finance Ltd., the lending and investment arm of Bajaj Finserv is offering the Daily Commute Insurance that provides coverage of up to Rs 3 lakh at a premium of just Rs 549.
With adequate financial coverage, the policy enables you to meet your treatment costs in case you meet with an accident. To further understand its benefits, take a closer look at the features of this insurance cover:
Get coverage for hospitalisation due to accidents: An accident during your commute requires immediate attention to limit the severity of injuries and accelerate the recovery process.
