Is trailer insurance compulsory?

It is not compulsory to insure a trailer. A trailer is already insured on the car insurance of the towing vehicle. When you cause damage with your trailer, it is covered by the Civil Liability cover of your car insurance. This coverage is valid as long as you drive with your trailer, but also if it breaks loose. However, there is also a special trailer insurance. This insures the trailer against damage caused by fire, natural forces, vandalism and theft. Even if your trailer is damaged by your own hand, this is insured.
