GP - Gravel Protection - All cars

Includes damage to windscreen, headlights and the car when gravel or rocks get thrown on the vehicle by another car. Due to the recent volcanic eruptions in Iceland the risk of damage to the paint and windows of our cars has increased. No other insurance covers these damages and insurance companies refuse to cover them. Even though all safety rules are followed damage can happen when, for example, wind starts blowing more than was forecasted thus moving the sand/ash and damaging the car.

1.500 ISK
