Super friendly English speaking customer service, a rarity in Germany, and really good for expats who are still learning the language. Customer service was responsive throughout the whole period and made the processing, although a bit long, a very pleasant experience. Also probably the easiest insurance company I’ve ever had to deal with.

Answers to burning questions

Am I covered if I lose someone's key?

Put simply: yes.
If you lose a key that is not yours (but was entrusted to you) or if it is stolen, you are covered by your liability insurance. This applies to all keys, such as apartment keys, office keys or keys of a clubhouse.


What's a third party?

Third parties are people who are not insured in your contract and make claims for damages against you or a co-insured person. So the private liability insurance covers everyday risks in your private life, which could cause damage to third parties, their stuff or finances.


Am I covered if my dog causes any damage?

In general, dogs are not covered by your private liability insurance. You would need an own insurance (pet owner's liability insurance for dogs). However, if you have just gotten a dog, new risks are initially covered by the insurance, so that you won't be without any coverage for the time being. As soon as we ask or are informed about this, you will need to retroactively get a pet owner's liability insurance for your dog.

Yes, we are serious. We have founded Coya because we ourselves were fed up with complicated language, intransparent contracts and paperwork. You can really get covered with us in just a few minutes, view your documents online 24/7 and cancel at any time. Convince yourself!
