What car insurance covers
The car insurance comes in three different levels of protection. Choose full coverage, partial coverage, or traffic insurance.
Traffic insurance is legally required in order to drive in Sweden. It protects the driver, any passengers, and people outside the car in the event of an accident. The insurance applies regardless of who causes the accident.
- 01Compensation for personal injuries in the event of a traffic accident
- 02Protects the driver and any passengers
- 03Protects people outside the car
- 04Compensation for legal fees
- 05Deductible: 1 500 SEK
Traffic insurance is legally required in order to drive in Sweden. It covers damage caused by you as a driver to someone else’s property.
- 01Compensation for damage to someone else’s car
- 02Compensation for damage to someone else’s other property
- 03Deductible: 1 500 SEK
Includes protection in the event of theft or burglary, compensating you if you need to replace a stolen automobile or repair one that is recovered. The size of the deductible depends on whether your car was locked at the time of the theft. Loose car parts and wheels must be kept locked in the car. Crisis counseling is included in the case of mental illness as a direct consequence of theft or burglary. Theft of cell phones kept in the car is not covered but can be covered by your home insurance.
- 01Covers theft and burglary from, and of, your car
- 02Covers theft from your car when traveling
- 03Lock the car to minimize the deductible
The fire coverage covers damages if your car catches fire. You will receive compensation for damage caused to the car in the event of a fire. If your car is completely destroyed in a fire, we can provide you with a new car of equal value. Events that could have been prevented or avoided through proper maintenance — such as fires caused by short-circuiting — are not covered.
- 01Covers fire damage to the car
- 02Damage caused due to fire, lightning or explosion
- 03Deductible: 2 000 SEK
Partial coverage covers chips, as well as replacement of a cracked or shattered windscreen, side window or rear window. Full coverage also covers damaged car lights, glass roofs and similar glass surfaces in the event of a traffic accident.
- 01Compensation for windscreen, side window and rear window replacement
- 02Covers glass that has been cracked or shattered
- 03The deductible varies depending on the damage
Provides you with access to emergency roadside assistance. You are compensated for costs related to assistance in the event of a traffic accident or breakdown. Jump-start assistance, transportation to your home and additional costs for hotel stays are also included.
- 01Towing and roadside assistance in Sweden
- 02Traffic accident or breakdown
- 03Flat tire
- 04Jump-start assistance, transportation
- 05Additional costs for hotel stays
- 06Deductible: 1 750 SEK
Provides protection for the engine, battery and car functions against sudden damage, for both electric and internal combustion cars. An authorized workshop must investigate the problem to determine if the protection applies. The insurance is valid until the car is 8 years old or has a mileage of 100,000 km.

- 02Covers serious problems with the engine, gearbox, et cetera
- 03Valid for 8 years, or up to 100 000 km

Get help with legal fees for certain disputes that have to do with your car and your car ownership. Legal protection does not apply to disputes or claims that have to do with renting. Drunk driving, speeding, driving at a red light, illegal driving or where a more severe penalty than a fine is included in the penalty scale is not covered.
- 01Compensation for disputes involving your car
- 02Compensation for legal fees
- 03Deductible: 20% (at least 2 000 SEK)

Covers damage to the chassis in the event of a traffic accident, or external events such as vandalization or if a tree falls on the car. Full coverage is mainly suited for cars older than 3 years that do not have a vehicle damage guarantee (vagnskadegaranti).

- 02Covers traffic accidents, vandalization, and other external events
- 03Suited for cars older than 3 years
- 04Deductible: 5 000 SEK

Frequently asked questions
A used car that is less than three years old is already covered by the vehicle damage warranty, so in that case you only need partial coverage. For cars between 3 and 10 years, full coverage is always recommended. Traffic insurance is mandatory by law and is included in all coverage options.
But this is not an exact science — in many cases, there are other factors that need to be taken into consideration as well. Confused? Just talk to us and we’ll help you sort it out.
Basic guidelines for choosing coverage:
Partial coverage: New car, 0—3 years old
Full coverage: 3+ year old car
Traffic insurance only: 10+ year old car with a value below 25,000 SEK
You can switch between traffic insurance, partial and full coverage anytime in the Hedvig app. It’s just as easy to cancel your insurance. Hedvig has no lock-in period.
Switching to Hedvig is quick and easy. Here’s how:
Take a price quote and and sign up for our car insurance.
Authorize us to cancel your previous policy, using BankID via a link.
We’ll contact your previous insurer and cancel the policy for you.
Done! Your new Hedvig insurance will automatically come into effect on the day that your previous one expires.
(Please note: if your previous insurance policy expires within one week, you’ll need to contact your insurer yourself to cancel it.)
Most other insurance companies have lock-in periods. But we make it as easy as possible for you. We’ll activate your new car insurance only when the old one is terminated. If you have gotten rid of your old car and are insuring a new one, you have no lock-in period with your old insurance company.
Whether it’s parking damage or an engine failure in the middle of the highway, you can expect fast help from Hedvig. You can choose where you want to have your car repaired. We take care of the contact with the workshop, and you get more time for other things. We offer easy claims reporting in the Hedvig app, and smooth payouts for common problems.
Hedvig offers the same low prices whether you take out a single insurance policy or several. And we always give you full flexibility to change, pause or cancel your insurance at any time.
No. At Hedvig, we don’t want to make it harder to use your insurance just because you are under 25 years old, so the deductible remains the same regardless of your age.
