Frequently asked questions
Is it possible to expand the list of insurance risks?

Yes, please contact our experts who will help you choose the necessary extension of coverage to other risks or territories.

How is the sum insured determined when concluding an insurance contract?

The sum insured may be determined

  • in the full amount of the actual value, in which case the sum insured is equal to the actual value of a unit of rolling stock
  • in part of the full value, with the insurance indemnity being paid in proportion to the ratio of the sum insured to the actual value of the rolling stock
How is the payment calculated in case of partial damage and loss of a railway vehicle?

The amount of payment is calculated as follows: in case of partial damage - in the amount not exceeding the cost of restoration repairs, in case of total loss - within the sum insured less depreciation for the period of validity of the insurance contract, deductible and the actual market value of the remains of the damaged railway vehicle. The actual market value of the remains is determined based on the results of online auctions or on the results of an expert evaluation.

Are railway transport means with mechanical damage and/or corrosion accepted for insurance?

Yes, they shall be accepted, but only if such damage/corrosion is recorded in the Insured's application. Claims for damage to such parts and components shall be accepted by the Insurer provided that such mechanical damage/corrosion has been repaired by the Insured at his/her own expense prior to the occurrence of an event having signs of an insured event, as evidenced by supporting documents.
