In Switzerland, vehicle liability insurance is compulsory for all vehicle keepers. To register a vehicle in Switzerland you need a vehicle insurance certificate from a Swiss insurance company. Vehicle liability insurance covers damage you cause with your vehicle to vehicles belonging to third parties, to other people or to their property. For all-round protection it is worth taking out a partially or fully comprehensive policy to provide additional cover. This also applies to motorcyclists.
