(ii) Your Right to Cancel

You are entitled to cancel this policy by notifying us in writing or by telephone on 0345 519 4969.

(1) the date you receive this policy; or

(2) the start of your period of insurance

whichever is the later. Where your policy has been purchased over the internet, receipt of the documentation will be deemed to have taken place when it has been received by you at your nominated email address.

If this policy is cancelled before the start of your period of insurance a full refund of any premium paid will be made, otherwise any return of premium due to you will be calculated at a proportional daily rate depending on how long the policy has been in force unless you have made a claim in which case the full premium is due.

(c) Our Right to Cancel

We are entitled to cancel this policy, if there is a valid reason to do so, including for example:

(i) any failure by you to pay the premium; or

(ii) a change in risk occurring which means we can no longer provide you with insurance cover; or

(iii) non-cooperation or failure to supply any information or documentation we request, such as details following an accident;

by giving you seven (7) days’ notice in writing. Any return of premium due to you will be calculated at a proportional daily rate depending on how long the policy has been in force unless you have made a claim in which case the full premium is due.
