    Gross negligence

    If you drive negligently in road traffic and thereby cause an accident, the insurance company is entitled to reduce the claims payments. By expanding your insurance to cover gross negligence, we will refrain from recourse or a reduction in benefits for damage caused by gross negligence (this does not apply if you are under the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication).

    Glass breakage in headlights

    Your insurance will cover damaged or broken headlights, tail lights, indicators, bulbs and LEDs.

    Value supplement

    In the event of a total loss or theft, the current value plus a supplement will be compensated.

    Our roadside service is there to help you if you have a vehicle breakdown, lose your keys or run out of petrol anywhere in Europe.

    Personal accident insurance

    This extends coverage to the vehicle occupants in the event of consequential damage after an accident.

    CO2 option

    Do your bit for the environment by offsetting your CO2 emissions. If you choose this option, every kilometre you drive will support a “south pole” project we have selected. One of the aims of this socio-economic project is to tackle unnecessary CO2 emissions.
