vehicle insurance terms
Often confused to see the term vehicle insurance? Don't worry, Friends of Insurance are ready to help with terms that are often used in Vehicle Insurance.
You may have heard this term many times, but do you really know the meaning behind it? Policy and insurance policy have almost the same meaning, an insurance policy is an agreement or agreement between the policyholder and the insurance company to perform obligations such as loss or damage protection that has been agreed by both parties.
A word you will also hear often is premium. In short, the premium is the value or nominal payment agreed by the policyholder with the insurance company. The amount of premium to be paid will also be listed on your vehicle insurance policy.
Simply put, the price of coverage is the purchase price of a motor vehicle when you make an insurance policy. This purchase price will be listed in the policy and will later become the maximum limit of the liability value of the insurance company if you make a claim at any time.
Total Loss Only or TLO
Well, this one term is very closely related to car insurance. Total Loss Only or TLO is one of the most common types of vehicle insurance in Indonesia. If you choose Total Loss Only motor vehicle insurance, it means that in the event of a loss or damage the insurance will provide repair or replacement costs of only 75%.
Just like the term TLO, all risk is also related to the type of insurance you can choose for your vehicle. The difference between the two is that all risk insurance will accept all claims for loss or damage to a motorbike or car up to 100%.
Deductible or Own Risk
Deductible, own risk, or own risk have the same meaning, namely the value that becomes your burden for each damage or loss that occurs. This burden or value is usually calculated from the amount of compensation to be paid. As a policyholder you must really pay attention to these details in the insurance policy purchased.
TJH III or Third Party Legal Liability
In simple terms, TJH III talks about the liability guarantee that will be given by the insurance party to a third party if the insured vehicle suffers a loss or damage. You can ask the insurance party for points regarding Third Party Legal Liability when making a policy.
At least you need to understand the terms mentioned above, besides that, pay attention to the points that talk about losses caused by natural disasters, riots or acts of terrorism. Don't forget to read the motor vehicle insurance policy in full and in detail so that you know exactly what protection you have.

Does Car Insurance Cover Landslides?
Aside from the danger of flooding, heavy rainfall can also lead to mudflow, basically creating a river of mud; and landslides, which are caused by the movement of the destabilized land—due either to gradual erosion or an accumulation of water.
