How does base insurance work?
If the car accident happens through no fault of yours, the repair will be by the person at fault. If the fault is yours or mutual, you will not have to bear full liability. We limit drivers’ liability for the damage to the car:
1. Damage to the car is less than 70,000 RUB: Depending on the scale of accident, you compensate the damage by yourself, but no more than 50,000 RUB.
2. Damage to the car is more than 70,000 RUB: You pay 50,000 RUB + 25% of the amount exceeding 70,000 RUB.
How does CASCO option work?
It is turned on additionally. If it happens that you are at fault of a road traffic accident but you didn’t violate any more YouDrive rules, then the maximum amount of your liability is 15,000 RUB. If you are not at fault of the accident, you will not have to pay anything. To turn the CASCO on, press the shield on the top left corner of the screen.
