What conditions apply?
Below you can see the insurance terms.
How do I get an insurance?
You don't have to do anything at all! The insurance is activated automatically when your Housecar booking starts.
The insurance is a so-called mandatory group insurance, which means that it is included when renting via Housecar. The insurance is valid for the entire rental period with Housecar.
What does the insurance cover?
The insurance covers damage, loss or theft that occurs within the EEA and the United Kingdom
Can I ignore having a car insurance now?
No, Omocom's insurance solution requires the vehicle to be covered by basic traffic insurance.
Why do I need basic traffic insurance?
Omocom's insurance solution covers where the basic traffic insurance does not cover, for example in the event of theft or damage that occurs when the vehicle has been rented out to a second or third party.
If a damage or theft can be compensated by the ordinary traffic insurance, Omocom reimburses costs for, for example, deductibles paid to ordinary insurance companies.
Contact Omocom's claims team if it feels tricky, they are happy to help and explain in a way that everyone should understand.
Examples of damages that are compensated:
- Traffic accident that causes damage to the vehicle
- Intentional damage - someone throws a stone at the vehicle
- Theft - An unknown person steals and drives away with the vehicle
- A dent in the vehicle caused by accidentally backing into an object
- Stone shot on the windshield
Examples of damages that are not compensated:
- Minor scratches or normal wear and tear that does not affect the usability of the vehicle
- Wear, rust, corrosion or something else that is due to lack of maintenance of the vehicle
What is Omocom?
Omocom is an insurance intermediary that tailors and distributes the insurance. A traditional insurance company, in this case Dina Försäkringar AB, takes the risk. Omocom has a circular thinking, which means that they want to promote the use of existing vehicles, things and homes by adapting insurance for it. So that more people dare to rent out!
Omocom has its own claims settlement team that handles claims reports quickly and trouble-free.
If you have a general question about the insurance or need to report a damage, it is the Omocom team you contact.
Compensation can be made through repairs, compensation by a corresponding property or paid in cash.
Payout is made with Omocom's payment partner Trustly - you usually have your money within a few minutes of payout initiation!
