Canceling auto insurance without license plates

My insurance company informed me that I need to turn in my license plates in order to cancel my auto insurance. My car is currently on its way back to th US. Is there away around turning in my plates?

Re: Canceling auto insurance without license plates

You mean you sent it the States with Swiss plates still on? I reckon the only way you can cancel is to get those plates and hand them back to the local Swiss traffic office, only them will the grey card be marked cancelled...

Re: Canceling auto insurance without license plates

Is it possible to do it by mail? If I do nothing about it what could happen?

Yes, you can do it by mail.

If you do nothing, you keep paying the insurance.
