Premiums in liability car insurance to rise 35-40 percent

Slovak drivers will face another major increase of prices of liability car insurance next year, writes Hospodárske noviny economic daily.

Insurance companies are considering a 35-40 percent increase for 2004, arguing that the current insurance price is too low and results in a loss for them.

Apart from covering damages, companies also have bear the deficit that they inherited from the former monopoly insurer.

On November 1, a revision of the law on obligatory car liability insurance became effective. The law cancels the state regulation of premiums and thus liberalises the market.

The revision also includes a directive of the European Union, setting the exact period of time during which insurance companies are obliged to pay damages to clients.
