Why insure your electric car with If?

  • Insurance designed for electric cars

    Our insurance covers traction batteries and a glass roof just like any other car parts. Our Casco insurance also covers charging cables. In cases of loss or damage, their damage will be covered by the insurance as usual. Your home charging station is included in our extensive home insurance.

  • If is at your service even when electricity runs out

    You can access our on-call advice 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, both in Finland and abroad. We give advice in cases of loss or damage or if you suspect something is wrong with your electric car. Our Casco insurance also covers towing to the nearest charging point.

  • Adjust your premium by choosing a suitable deductible for your Full Casco insurance

    With If's Full Casco insurance, you can influence your insurance premium by adjusting your deductible. The higher the deductible, the lower the cost of the insurance. We recommend a deductible of 500 euros for If’s Full Casco insurance.

    Please note that the deductible you select applies only to collision cover. For other car insurance covers, the deductible is usually only 200 euros. In addition, towing and windscreen repair are possible without a deductible when you use If’s towing and repair service partners.

    When you insure your car with Full Casco in addition to motor third party liability insurance, you receive a separate bonus for your casco insurance. The starting bonus for new Full Casco policies at If is always 80%, even if you have a history of insurance claims in your previous insurance company.

    In practice, this means that you get a 80% discount on the most valuable part of Full Casco, the collision cover.
