Car insurance

Car insurance in Switzerland consists of four main elements.

liability insurance

Liability insuranceThe liability insurance covers damages caused to third parties. Usually, car insurances in Switzerland do not have a deductible for drivers over 25 years of age. A bonus/malus system allows driving behaviour to have a direct influence on the annual premium. Without a loss, a person over 29 is at the lowest bonus level. Another important factor for the annual premium in Switzerland is nationality. Certain nations can pay up to 50% more for the exact same car insurance.

collision damage waiver

The partial coverage insurance covers damages for which you usually have little influence. This includes damage caused by natural forces (hail, storm, etc.), animal damage, stone chips in windows and headlights or vandalism. Some insurance companies also offer a free breakdown service throughout Europe in combination with partial cover. The deductible is generally CHF 0.

fully comprehensive insurance

The fully comprehensive insurance covers damage to your own car after an accident. As in liability insurance, a bonus/malus system allows driving behaviour to influence the insurance premium. In most cases, the deductible is CHF 1,000 and has a significant influence on the annual premium.

parking damage insurance

The parking damage insurance covers damage to the packaged car from unknown third parties. These can be dents and intentional scratching. The annual premium is influenced by the vehicle value and the chosen deductible. It is advisable to set the deductible at CHF 0 or to reduce the deductible for fully comprehensive cover to CHF 500.

at Autoimport Switzerland FAQ

In Switzerland it is compulsory to take out liability insurance. No vehicle can be registered without appropriate proof.

A changeover sign refers to the constellation of two vehicles with the same control sign. The sign can be used on both cars as desired. More than two vehicles cannot be registered with the same licence plate.

A certificate of insurance is sent electronically by the insurance company to the Road Traffic Office in your canton of residence after conclusion of the contract and is valid for 30 days.

You can cancel car insurance under the following conditions:

  • Premium increase: within 30 days of announcement
  • Change of car: If you buy a new car, you can change your insurance without a deadline. The already paid annual premium will be refunded to you.
  • Claim: If you are not satisfied after a claim that was covered by the insurance, you can cancel within 14 days

The usual duration of the contract is 3 to 5 years. However, you can have an “annual right of termination” built in as clauses upon request. This allows you to cancel your car insurance every year.
