PhonePe has expanded its insurance portfolio by launching Car and Bike Insurance products on its platform for owners in collaboration with Bajaj Allianz General Insurance, one of India’s leading general insurers.
With this new launch, more than 230 million registered PhonePe users will now be able to insure their vehicles seamlessly in less than 2 minutes, without uploading any documents before the purchase and also view their policy documents instantly on the app.
The brand stated in its official communiqué that its Car and Bike insurance products are also among the most affordable ones available in the market today.
PhonePe says that the users can also get hassle-free renewals, cashless repair services at an extensive countrywide network of garages and instant claim settlement within 20 mins.
Gunjan Ghai, VP & Head of Insurance at PhonePe said, “We are delighted to launch Car and Bike insurance products for our users. This is in line with our goal to be a one-stop destination for all insurance needs of our customers, We believe there is tremendous headroom for growth in the motor insurance segment as two-wheelers account for 70% of the vehicles in the country and a bulk of these are uninsured. With our reach and customer-first approach, we are offering a simple, quick and convenient way to buy motor insurance while also enabling smooth renewals. We remain deeply committed to making insurance affordable and accessible for our over 230 million users and will be launching many new products in the near future.”
Sourabh Chatterjee, President & Head – IT, Web Sales & Travel at Bajaj Allianz General Insurance said, “Motor insurance is necessary and provides protection during accidents. Still, we have many vehicles across India, both two-wheelers and four-wheelers, which are either not insured or are underinsured. At Bajaj Allianz General Insurance, our endeavour has always been to offer insurance products in the market that are simple, easy to understand, purchase and claim for our customers. Our partnership with digital platform providers are another small but giant step in that direction and hence we are very excited with this launch. We will be coming up with more new and innovative products on this platform in the future.”
