After a claim

You can cancel your insurance and change to another insurance company if you have a claim on your vehicle. However, you should make sure that the cancellation must be made within 14 days after the insurance company has been notified of the facts - this is the case, among others, when you have been credited with the payment of the corresponding amount.

After a premium increase

You can cancel your insurance and change to another insurance if your existing insurance changes the terms and conditions or the premiums. Your insurance company must inform you in advance of what changes will be made and how long you have until the notice period expires. The changes are deemed to be accepted if you do not cancel your insurance in time.

In the event of a change of vehicle or change of owner

You can cancel your insurance and change to another insurance if you change your vehicle or change of owner. If you subsequently buy a new vehicle, you will need to find new insurance.
