Third Party Liability Insurance coverage
The Third Party Liability insurance covers liability for damage caused when using the vehicle in traffic and where liability according to law and legal practice can be imposed upon the insured or any person using the vehicle with his permission. It is valid in all European countries except former Soviet Union. It is also valid in Israel, Morocco, Tunisia and Turkey. When visiting former Soviet Union a special insurance must be signed at the border. Regarding validity in former Yugoslavia we kindly ask you to contact the factory.
The insurance company will cover the legal expenses of the insured if legal proceedings have been instituted against him due to an injury or damage covered by the insurance. However, only reasonable expenses, justified by the company's interest in the proceedings, will be compensated. No money will be paid in respect of fines or for legal expenses in connection with any action against the insured.
Insurance Against Material Damage to Own Vehicle
The validity of this insurance covers the same countries as indicated for the Third Party Liability Insurance. It is also valid during transportation between and within these countries and covers:
• Damage to the vehicle.
• Damage to accessories and tools included in the price of the vehicle as well as any other equipment which can be considered normal for vehicles of the same kind and manufacture as the one insured, on the understanding that the property in question was always attached to or normally kept in the vehicle.
• Damage to dismounted parts of the vehicle and dismantled equipment provided they were stored with normal care and attention. This relates solely to property designated for use in and on the vehicle. The insurance does not cover trailers coupled to the vehicle.
Personal Accident Insurance
This coverage is provided at no additional premium costs. This personal accident insurance covers the driver and every authorized passenger. The amount insured is doubled if there is more than one person in the car when the accident occurs. In this case, such an amount will be shared by the passengers in the car. The insurance applies to accidents directly connected with the steering, use operation, loading and unloading and parking of the car. The insurance covers any injuries which the insured or passengers in the vehicle suffer involuntarily and resulting from sudden external force being applied to his body.
