Insurance in Switzerland Everything you need to know about insurance
Third-party liability insurance is generally required before you are able to rent a property. Household contents insurance is highly recommended. Swiss residents normally have both.
Health insurance is a legal requirement. It is important to know that your mandatory health insurance can only be changed once per year. To switch policies you must cancel your existing policy by the last day in November.
Other typical insurance policies are car insurance, breakdown coverage, travel insurance, bicycle insurance, pet insurance, and domestic staff insurance.
