Airtel Payments Bank has announced that it will offer comprehensive car insurance in association with Bharti AXA General Insurance. The Smart Drive Private Car Insurance offers financial protection against damage to the vehicle due to accident, theft, and natural and man-made disasters. It also compensates for injury or damages to another person or property caused due to a car accident.
The insurance comes with a personal accident cover for the policyholder. In the event of an accident leading to permanent disablement or loss of life, this ensures financial protection for the family.
