glass break w.o. small glass comp - what does it mean?

Hi there,

Unfortunately, while parking today I broke my rear window.

In the insurance I have this point "glass break w.o. small glass comp".

What does it mean exactly?

Thank
Pawel

Re: glass break w.o. small glass comp - what does it mean?

Hi there, let me elaborate a bit more on what I wrote above.


Unfortunately, while parking today I broke my rear window in my car.

I only have basic insurance with Liability, Theft, Fire, Nautral Hazard and Glass break w.o. small glass comp. Does it mean that I am covered and I can the insurance will cover it?

Thanks
Pawel

"w.o. small glass" - that reads to me that parts with glass like mirrors, headlights, blinkers aren't covered

Yes the damage to your rear glass should be covered.

The fact that glass damage is covered by Teilkasko is actually the main reason for me to have it as I make most km on the motorway, where a small stong from the car in front of you can be strong enough to damamge the front glass. With my previous car I had 3 or 4 broken front glasses.

Mhh, you may have a point there. Guess I should have written "unless you made it break".
