MyWay is exactly what I need, since I no longer drive my car very often. I only pay for what I drive and am still protected at all times.
Insurance that is perfectly suited to my needs: driving infrequently, while still benefiting from first-class service.
I like the per-kilometer billing: thanks to the autoSense app I always have an overview of my costs.
You can drive as much as you want without limits, but will only pay for a maximum of 1,000 kilometers per month.
Easy, in-app assistance without needing to search for documents.
You can call Zurich roadside assistance directly in the app with the SOS button.
The app enables you to quickly find help in your area.
Connected to your car via app.
Additional benefits alongside insurance: Fill up your tank without going to the cash register, pay for parking via app and much more.
Do you drive less than 9,000 km per year? Then MyWay is probably the most cost-effective car insurance for you; you pay per kilometer but are still protected around the clock.
With our premium calculator, you can determine your costs and decide whether MyWay is right for you. You can take out cover directly online.
By paying per-kilometer for your insurance with MyWay. You receive the same round-the-clock insurance coverage that you would with classic car insurance.
Each month you pay a basic fee and for each kilometer you drive. As a rule, if you drive less than 9,000 km a year, you will benefit from MyWay.
Our premium calculator lets you determine your costs and take out coverage directly online.
After taking out MyWay cover, we will send you an adapter and a registration code for the autoSense app. You download the app and connect it to the adapter. You then install this in your car under your steering wheel using the ODB-II connection. The adapter will then measure each kilometer you drive and transmit this information to Zurich. You can view your kilometers at any time in the app.
The topic of data privacy is very important to us. Alongside the basic information provided to us (information regarding the policyholder and vehicle, adapter status), Zurich is only informed about the number of kilometers you have driven, whether the adapter is connected to your car, and if Zurich services are activated within the app. This is so that we can produce an individually calculated bill that is precise down to the last kilometer. Data on any other driving behavior, routes driven or other vehicle use is not transmitted.
With MyWay, there are no unexpected costs. In addition to the usual basic fee, you only pay for a maximum of 1,000 kilometers per month. The 1,000 kilometer limit acts like a price cap. If you drive more than 1,000 kilometers in a month, the additional kilometers are free for you. This way, it's easy to calculate your costs, even if you drive your car during your vacation or more frequently than usual.
As a rule, MyWay benefits those who drive less than 9,000 km per year.
The best thing to do is use our premium calculator to determine your costs and whether MyWay or traditional car insurance will be your most cost-effective option. If you choose MyWay, you can take out your policy directly online.

As soon as you have taken out MyWay cover, we will send you an adapter, which you then install in your car underneath the steering wheel. This adapter measures the kilometers you drive and transmits this information to Zurich and via app to you. Measuring the kilometers you have driven is necessary as this is the only way we can know how many kilometers to bill for.
As a rule, all cars produced after 2001 are compatible with the adapter. During the process of taking out your MyWay insurance, we will check the compatibility with your car again.
Unfortunately, this is not possible. However, you do have the option of taking out MyWay cover for each vehicle. The less you drive, the lower your insurance premiums. So, MyWay can also be beneficial for two vehicles.
The best way to work out the cost is to use our premium calculator. If you then decide on MyWay, you can take out your policy directly online.
No. MyWay is only available to private persons.
You will receive your invoice at the beginning of each month. This will contain the kilometers driven in the previous month. This means, for example, that your March invoice will contain the kilometers that you have driven in February.

You can activate eBill payments easily via your bank's e-banking platform.
Methods of payment for your invoice:
Your invoice will be issued as a QR invoice. Accordingly, you may pay via QR code or online transfer. We recommend that you activate eBill as the payment method for your invoices. This way, your invoices will automatically be sent to your e-banking account and you can approve the payment there.
autoSense AG is our partner company and is responsible for the technical functionality of the adapter. Should you have any problems with the adapter, please contact autoSense customer services directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
On the English website of our partner company autoSense you can select your vehicle model and you will then see a photo, which will show you how to install the adapter.
As a rule, the connection is max. 60 cm away from the steering wheel.
Should you require further assistance, please contact autoSense customer services directly: email@example.com
When the LED is illuminated, the device is connected to the circuit.
If, however, the LED light is flashing, then the adapter is not connected to the vehicle. In this case, the adapter must just be dis- and reconnected. If you still have problems after following these steps, please contact the autoSense customer service: firstname.lastname@example.org
If the adapter is correctly connected, the LED on the adapter will light up red. When the engine is turned on, the light changes color slightly to orange-red.
After your car has gone unused for 2 weeks, the adapter will draw minimal power (max. 1mA daily) from the battery. This energy consumption from the adapter will never fully drain your car battery. If the battery is low, the adapter will automatically switch off.
If your vehicle is left unused for more than 4 weeks, we suggest taking more proactive measures and moving your vehicle to a secure, dry space. This will prevent your battery from being drained.
A trickle charger is generally recommended for longer periods without use to prevent the battery from draining completely. A trickle charger keeps the battery 100% charged with a constant current flow.
You can cancel your MyWay policy with 14 days notice. You may only remove the adapter after your policy has been canceled.
