Important

If you are driving with the Uber App, you need a supplementary cover for commercial people transport because the private car insurance does not cover claims that occur while you are using the Uber App.

PAY WHEN YOU DRIVE

Pay the supplementary coverage for commercial people transport only for the actual mileage you drive with the Uber App (invoiced monthly). Choose the option Private and Uber trips in the premium calculator.

Reduced deductible

After three years of accident-free driving  your deductible will be  reduced by CHF 500, and by another CHF 500 after a full six years of accident-free driving.

Back on the road in no time
