Jun 1, 2017. Posted in Services

Storms accompanied by hail – of the kind that occurred on 31 May 2017 in Thun – can cause considerable damage to vehicles. On this occasion, Generali responded immediately by offering those of its customers whose vehicles were affected a fast and simple solution: a drive-in in Gwatt where those insured with Generali could have the damage to their vehicles assessed and could get advice on the repairs required.

  • Following the severe storm that took place in Thun, Generali has opened a drive-in to provide a fast service for hail-damaged vehicles.
  • The drive-in in Gwatt is open daily from 19 to 23 June 2017.
  • Assessing the damage takes less than half an hour. Those affected receive a repair recommendation or compensation offer.
  • The experts dealing with them always select the best, most environmentally friendly and cost-effective way of remedying the damage.


Generali promises that each of its insurance customers will be notified of the cost of the damage to their vehicle before leaving the drive-in.  Customers can of course also opt to have the cost of the damage paid out. In this case they will receive a compensation offer, and the payment instructions will be issued immediately at the drive-in.
