Home Car Insurance Closing Reflection Period

What is the cooling off period when taking out a car insurance policy?

You are looking for a suitable car insurance, but there are many providers on the market, making it difficult for you to make a good choice. On our website you will find a careful selection of the insurance companies we do business with. We have made this selection based on the premium, but also on the quality of the conditions, experiences and how a company acts when a claim is made. When comparing insurances, we look at your personal situation and specific wishes.

Are you not satisfied with the coverage or do you want to take out the insurance elsewhere? No problem! You can cancel without giving reasons within 14 days after receiving the policy. This is a legal reflection period that also applies to taking out car insurance.

When does the cooling-off period start?

The 14 day cooling off period on your car insurance starts when you receive the policy. The policy may be sent to you by e-mail and by post. If you first receive the policy by e-mail, the cooling-off period will start from that moment.

If you make use of the 14-day cooling-off period, you should bear in mind that there was never any cover on the car insurance. This also means that you have to take out a new car insurance policy, at least a third-party insurance, to meet your insurance obligations. In this way, you can avoid a fine from the RDW, due to the fact that the vehicle is uninsured in your name.

How can the car insurance be cancelled?

You can notify us of the cancellation of the insurance in several ways. You can cancel the insurance via the website or you can contact us by email or telephone. We can be reached by phone from Monday to Friday between 08:00 and 18:00 on telephone number: 088-6883710.

After cancelling the car insurance within the cooling-off period, you will receive a confirmation of the cancellation from us. This confirmation clearly states that there was no coverage on the car insurance during this period and that damages incurred during this period will not be reimbursed by the insurer.

You can cancel your old car insurance directly online via our free cancellation service.
