Odd, as insurance doesn't expire here, nor can it be cancelled, if the car is registered.

Tom
It wasn't me, maybe more to it.. But something 'invalidated' the insurance making it null - void - expired whatever.. (maybe they forgot to pay)
Whatever it was triggered a quick response from the cops.

Re: Cancelling car insurance - when can I do this?

Some people mentioning the got reimbursed for the time not used post cancellation. Sounds like this might vary with insurer as my insurance company has a clause saying that no reimbursement will be done. You pay e.g. yearly and if you cancel mid the residual does not get reimbursed. Recommend to double check your contract terms.

Indeed, sounds like BS to me.

AXA reimbourses, as does Generali (based on personal experience).

Re: Cancelling car insurance - when can I do this?

This was the information I got when calling winterthur. My contract terms are all in French so I have to rely on info from the clerks. I hope that you are right then, maybe should give them another call to confirm as I will cancel shortly.

Why do you have your insurance documents in French when you do not understand French?
Either learn French ASAP or get them in a language you understand, like Englich https://www.axa.ch/en/privatkunden/a...sicherung.html
Click on "Blend in Details" at "Insurance Overview" then scroll all the way down to get the terms and conditions.

The answer to your problem lies in the answer of the following question: How did you cancel the insurance?

Winterthur does it no problem, as I cancel several policies each year with them.

Ordinary cancellation can't happen mid-year, AFAIK you don't get reimbursed in this kind of case. You need reason for immediate termination, e.g. you're selling or trashing your car.
