Get off to a good start and get great cover with a car insurance from If.
A third-party car insurance is a statutory requirement when you own a car in Denmark. A third-party insurance covers the damage you and your car might cause to other people, their belongings or their vehicles. However, this type of insurance does not cover injury to yourself or damage to your car.
If you want to cover your own car against theft or damage you need a more extensive car insurance: we offer four types of car insurance in addition to our Third-party Insurance (Ansvar): Third party, fire & theft (Delkasko), Comprehensive (Kasko), Comprehensive Plus (Comprehensive Plus) and Car/Leasing Super (the most comprehensive).
Insurance Company of the Year
For the second time in succession the Danish automobile dealers’ association Autobranchen Danmark declared If Insurance Company of the Year 2016.
You get roadside assistance on the go with a comprehensive motor insurance.
With a comprehensive motor insurance you are offered a courtesy car while your own car is being repaired.

What happens after I sell my car?
When you sell your used car in Denmark, the new owner usually has 21 days to re-register the car. When the car is re-registered, the Danish Customs and Tax Administration (SKAT) and the Danish motor-registration system DMR will let us know, and we will terminate your car insurance as from the re-registration date.
We will transfer any credit you may have with us to your NemKonto (‘Easy Account’).
