    Common questions about car insurance

    The easiest way to do it is with our cancellation letter template. You must cancel your car insurance in writing and send the letter by registered post, ensuring it reaches the insurance company by the required deadline. The notice periods range from 24 hours to 3 months, depending on the insurer.

    Every year, there are countless incidents involving damage to parked cars. Insurance for damage while parked covers damage to your parked car that is caused by another vehicle, for example.

    • To be on the safe side, report the damage to the police.
    • Depending on the extent of the damage, the police will produce a report for the insurance company.
    • Take photos of the damage and send them to the insurance company in support of your claim.
    • The easiest way to make a claim is to do it online, and you can submit your photos at the same time.
    • Don’t arrange any repair work until you have received confirmation from the insurer that your insurance will cover the cost.

    It is important to file your claim properly. Here are the steps to follow:

    • Keep calm
    • Document the damage using photos or, in the case of accident, using the European accident report
    • Report the claim
    • Forward payment request documents such as invoices and receipts to the insurance company

    Whatever damage occurs, always notify your insurer as soon as possible.

    If you occasionally drive someone else’s vehicle, it’s worth taking out cover for driving other cars. This is a personal liability insurance add-on. If you have an accident in someone else's car, different types of insurance may be involved. It depends whether any third parties – i.e. other vehicles or people – were damaged or injured in the accident. The first step is to check the cover provided by the driver's own car insurance, as this is the insurance that usually pays out the quickest. The next step is to examine whether there would be any payout from other policies held by the driver, such as accident insurance or personal liability insurance.

    There are various ways to insure against breakdown. The cost of a breakdown is covered either by a mobility or roadside assistance add-on to your car insurance or by a separate breakdown policy.
