How do I change my French insurance contract?

Did you know that in France it’s now easy to cancel or change your insurance contract?

That’s right: if you are unhappy with your insurance provider or want to shop around for a better deal before renewing, you are able to do so. What’s more, we can help you to do this… we’ll take away the pain or uncertainty and look after all the paperwork for you.

Previously many people had not considered changing their provider during mid-contract. However, a change was made to French law in 2016 to enable insurers to provide a more flexible service to the consumer, allowing those with home or car insurance to cancel a policy if it has been in place for more than one year. It’s the responsibility of all insurers to inform you of your rights including cancelling mid-contract.

There are different ways in which you can cancel a contract, but the 2016 legislation (called the “Loi Hamon”) is the most straight forward. Of course, if you move house or sell your car, then you are automatically able to cancel an existing contract.
What do you do? Simply contact us and we will explain the terms and conditions and arrange for the new contract to be signed. Don’t worry about needing to translate the forms or policies; we are a 100% British owned agency using friendly, bi-lingual English speaking staff. So you can be confident that we will look after you, completing the necessary paperwork that is required.

After a period of 31 days from mandating the new insurer, the changeover will take place. Voila! Your new insurance contract will be completed. Contact us today if you would like us to help you secure a better deal.
