Car insurance

Glass breakage

Glass breakage claims are covered through partial casco insurance (comprehensive). This includes damaged

  • windscreens,
  • side windows,
  • rear windows,
  • sun roofs,
  • as well as – with some insurers and sometimes for an additional premium – damage to headlights and small parts such as indicators made of glass or materials serving as a glass substitute.

Some companies impose a deductible of CHF 200 for the replacement of windows. This does not apply if the windows are repaired instead of replaced.
