Crack in windscreen in drivers view. Repairable?

My car got struck my a sizeable piece of gravel on the motorway a couple of weeks ago and windscreen now has a 2 inch crack in the drivers field of view. My instinct is to change the windscreen, and with that in mind I have a date with a garage in a couple of weeks time. I have a CHF 1000 glass excess on my car insurance. Is it technically repairable? Any ideas on the likely cost difference?

Thanks,

Andy

at AMAG it cost 1000 CHF to replace the windshield, insurance paid this.

Check with Carglass what they would charge?

Cracks can't be repaired, only chips. And in your field of vision the limit is something like 10mm, so no on both counts.
