There is good news for drivers in Bavaria. Because on New Year's Eve, not only do the annual figures change, but also the regional classes into which the German Insurance Association (GDV) divides the claims balances of the approximately 400 registration districts in Germany. Motorists in Aschaffenburg, Passau, Rosenheim and Regensburg will have cheaper motor liability insurance in the future, but GDV will give motorists in Hof, Roth and Lindau a higher rating from 2018.

Where do road users cause a particularly large number of claims that are expensive for insurers, and where do they only rarely crash?? This is what the GDV determines every year. There are a few surprises in store for 2018 – both nice and not so nice. In Bavaria, for example, more than 1.9 million drivers can look forward to more favorable conditions for their car insurance, because in Aschaffenburg, Passau, Dachau, Rosenheim and in the districts of Bayreuth and Regensburg, they will be placed in a lower regional class. But for just under 400.000 vehicle owners in six registration districts the decision of the GDV is less pleasing: They are classified in the coming year in higher regional classes.
