On insurance policies here, you can have optional windscreen cover too, but because of the excess, if you don't have it you lose money still. But a high excess still means lower premiums, so it's offset in other areas. I really do not like the idea of having to pay extra for choice of repairer, but the insurer I'd prefer to use for my Saab's (Shannons here in Oz) won't insure me because my car hasn't had full-comp insurance for almost a year now. sigh. At $300+ for rego, the same for full-comp, and again for compulsory 3rd-party, I decided to not renew the full-comp last year. It's a really merry-go-round to get the right insurance options with the right sort of discounts.
