Car insurance

Geographical scope of car insurance


Swiss car insurance provides cover in the following geographical areas:

  • Switzerland
  • Principality of Liechtenstein
  • European countries listed on the "Green Card" (international insurance card for motor vehicles)
  • Countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea
  • Mediterranean island states

Coverage for sea journeys will continue as long as the places of departure and destination are situated within these areas.

If the vehicle owner moves to a country other than Switzerland or the Principality of Liechtenstein, the insurance contract will expire by the end of the insurance year at the latest. However, the vehicle owner may arrange an earlier end of contract with the company. The earliest possible date for this is usually when the number plates are deposited at the Road Traffic Office.
