Cancel Your AXA Policy the Easy Way

There are several reasons why you might need to cancel your AXA car insurance policy. For example, you've decided that your AXA car insurance policy doesn't cut it anymore and are looking to change insurers, or maybe you're getting rid of your car and don't need insurance for it anymore.

Whatever your reason, the process should be straightforward. We walk you through what you have to do to cancel your AXA car insurance policy, including the different charges and costs involved, and how DoNotPay can help make the process much easier and faster.

What Are AXA Cancellation Policies?

AXA has comprehensive and straightforward cancellation policies.

Cancellations Within the 14-Day Cooling Period

By law, every car insurance policy comes with a cooling-off period. The cooling-off period is either 14 days from the renewal date or 14 days from when you get your policy documents in the post.

If you change your mind shortly after buying your AXA car insurance policy, you have two options to cancel your policy within 14 days of the start date:

You can cancel the policy back to the start date.This is your statutory right to cancel, and AXA will return your payment in full. In effect, this will mean that AXA did not cover your car.
Alternatively, AXA can cover you for up to 14 days.If you cancel within the 14 days, you will only need to pay for the time you have been covered and a £25 administration fee. You will not be charged a cancellation fee, and AXA will refund any money above the amount of the days you have had covered. It's what's known as a pro-rata refund and considers the time you've been covered.

Cancellations After 14 Days of Cover

If you cancel an AXA policy more than 14 days from the start date, you will need to pay a £52.50 cancellation fee on top of the time AXA has covered you. They will return payment for cover after the cancellation date (a pro-rata refund), minus the cancellation fee. AXA will pay any refund to the card or bank account you used when you took out your insurance within 10 working days of cancellation.

Customers who pay by monthly instalments may not be entitled to a refund and may instead be required to pay an extra premium to include the time they have been covered and the £52.50 cancellation fee.

Cancelling Your AXA Car Insurance Policy After Making a Claim

Like most car insurance companies, AXA won't give you any refund on your car insurance if you've made a claim. If there's an eligible claim on the policy, you'll need to pay the full premium for the year. This includes fault claims, split liability claims, and any open and unresolved claims. However, windscreen repairs and replacements would not count towards a claim.

If you are paying by instalments and you incur eligible claims, you will either have to continue with the instalment payments until the premium is paid in full, or AXA may, at their discretion, deduct the outstanding instalments due from any claim payment made.
