- insurance against burglary and robbery of goods that are located in the place of habitation;

8. What does the term deductible or participation in damage mean and is there a way to avoid it?
The term deductible refers to the participation of the insured in the amount of money paid to compensate for the damage. For example, if a Casco Insurance is purchased with a deductible of €200, and the damage amounts to €300, the insured shall be paid only €100 from the insurance company because his participation (deductible) is €200. In some cases the deductible can be purchased by paying an additional premium. In some types of insurance the client can choose the amount of the deductible which affects accordingly the amount of the premium.
