Comprehensive Collision Insurance
More About Comprehensive Collision Insurance
- When you purchase Comprehensive Collision Insurance, you can choose the amount of the deductible, which is the amount you pay if you suffer damage. We then pay the difference between the deductible and the total damage. The amount of the deductible affects the premium, so that the higher the deductible, the lower the premium. It is most common for our customers to choose a deductible in the range of ISK 90,000 - 140,000.
- We also offer a partial Comprehensive Collision Insurance, which is a good option for tractors and other vehicles that are rarely used in urban areas.
- The Comprehensive Collision Insurance is valid in Iceland and when travelling within the European Economic Area and Switzerland for up to 92 days from the date of departure. If the trip lasts longer than 92 days, the period of validity can be extended for a fee.
