We are a classic Czech brand with a 188-year history.
We share the peerless know-how of Generali, one of the world’s largest insurance groups.
We are at the forefront of high-tech use.
We have been named Insurance Company of the Year four times in a row in the prestigious Fincentrum Bank of the Year competition.
In 1909, we introduced the insurance of self-propelled machines (cars), and subsequently saw it flourish in the 1930s.
These days, we are a modern composite insurer and the market’s number-one.
Our most successful life insurance lines, such as our 2014 newcomer Můj život (My Life), offer cover for all common life and personal accident risks and enable the whole family to be protected by a single contract.
We respond to our clients’ needs by revamping services and rolling out new products. We are the largest non-life insurer, with business insurance a particular speciality.
The best-known and largest claim was when the unfinished National Theatre burned to the ground in 1881.
We paid out 297,869 Guldens for the reconstruction of the theatre, and in doing so gained considerable prestige in the eyes of the Czech nation.
Our property insurance comes with comprehensive cover, including a personal loss adjuster and prompt claim settlement.
Česká pojišťovna has repeatedly risen to the occasion in its response to the disastrous floods that hit the Czech Republic in 1997, 2002 and 2013. Hundreds of our employees dealt with tens of thousands of claims – far more than any other domestic insurance company – on the ground.
Following the floods in 2013, we settled more than 60% of clients’ claims within a month.
In the wake of a summer hailstorm and gales, again in 2013, 80% of the more than 11,000 clients affected had had their claims fully processed before the month was out.
The company’s first headquarters in Prague’s Spálená Street, designed by the architect Osvald Polívka, offered clients a luxurious backdrop of Art-Nouveau offices and boardrooms.
The new branches we are opening boast a design for the 21st century and modern-day service.
Our approximately 3,900 employees and 5,600 sales representatives at more than 4,500 points of sale all aspire to deliver maximum customer satisfaction.
Integrated into the structures of the Generali Group, we share the know-how of one of the world’s largest insurance groups.
As early as the 1980s, we at Česká pojišťovna started to build a Commodore PC 20 network of personal computers, with more than 100 deployed by November 1987
We streamline communications and speed up processes, especially when it comes to claim settlements.
We blaze a trail in the introduction of state-of-the-art technology – in 2011, we became the first insurer on the Czech market to roll out a smartphone app, Pojišťovna (Insurance Company), which is most commonly used for motor insurance. This application, used by more than 120,000 clients, offers unique OCR technology, allowing letters and numbers to be read from photographed documents.
Our Horská služba (Mountain Ranger) app is a great help for anyone visiting the Czech Mountains.
We were a friend in need as far back as the 19th century, when we supported the orphans of firefighters who had tragically died in action.
The Česká pojišťovna Foundation has long backed activities and projects closely linked to the operations of Česká pojišťovna.
We contribute to the training of guide and assisted-therapy dogs for children and young people with visual impairments or suffering from combined or other disabilities.
We are dedicated to the prevention of road accidents and child injuries.
Under the Gentleman of the Road project, we reward members of the public who have selflessly assisted others in serious traffic accidents.
