Fully comprehensive cover – In addition to partially comprehensive cover, comprehensive cover insures you in the event of collision damage to your own vehicle for which you are to blame.

We need you to provide us with some details on the new vehicle and will then issue the proof of insurance immediately. You or your mechanic can then submit the new registration.

Insurance premiums are dependent on claims histories. If a claim is filed during the observation period, then the premium will go up in the following calendar year. The increase only affects the business line affected by the claim, however*. The bonus level will be incremented by four levels for each insured event occurring during the observation period and leading to compensation being paid or reserves being formed.
If you opt for supplementary «bonus protection insurance» then the first claim per year and per business line will have no negative effect on your premium, i.e. the premium won’t go up. By the way, a claim in the case of partially comprehensive cover that costs no more than CHF 400.00 will have no bearing on the bonus protection insurance, and the same applies if glass or hail damage is repaired by our partner businesses.
* A business line corresponds to an area of insurance cover such as liability, partially comprehensive cover, fully comprehensive cover or parking damage.
