Scope of insurance are different
The HUK Coburg, for example, is very generous and offers protection all optional equipment. With Sparkassen DirectVersicherung, on the other hand, customers only get reimbursement of EUR 1,000 after theft or a self-inflicted accident in the comprehensive insurance area - this applies to the so-called basic car tariff.

The premium surcharge is usually not expensive. Nobody has to fear that. This is definitely still cheaper than paying for the accessories out of your own pocket after an accident.
