Consumers hardly pay more for their car insurance if they include marten damage, including consequential damage. On average, long-term marten damage insurance only costs a four percent surcharge compared to the basic premium.1) The protection makes sense, because more than 200,000 cases of marten damage to vehicles are reported each year in Germany.2)
In the event of damage, the comprehensive insurance will cover the replacement of cables, hoses or chewed rubber in the event of a sable bite. However, consumers should make sure that consequential damages are also insured. Only then will the insurance also cover damage that occurs, for example, to the engine as a result of a marten bite. Especially with electric cars, marten bites can even lead to a total loss.
“Engine damage quickly costs several thousand euros”says Michael Roloff, General Manager of Motor Vehicle Insurance at CHECK24. “Consumers should therefore make sure that they also insure indirect damage caused by a marten bite in their car insurance. It only costs a little more. In some rates, indirect damage is even insured for free. “.
