If you wish to buy car insurance, you must apply first. Usually, insurance companies provide preprinted or electronic forms for this purpose. Depending on the company, different formalities apply.
After you have submitted your application, the insurer must decide whether or not to accept you as a customer within 14 days. If they do not contact you within this period, you are free of commitments and may withdraw your application.
Tip: Answer all the questions in the application form truthfully (compulsory declaration). If you do not, the insurer can deny claims in case of damage or reclaim benefits already paid.
