How to Switch Your Car Insurance to MAPFRE

Although having a valid car insurance policy is required by law, there are no rules to say that you must stay with the same insurance provider forever. If you are looking to switch over to MAPFRE Insurance, the process is simple! And while you make that switch, It’s vital to organize the transition properly so your vehicle remains covered throughout the process.

At MAPFRE, we offer car insurance tailored to your needs. Once you have decided to switch your car insurance policy over to MAPFRE, the first thing you should do is look at the cancellation requirements of your existing policy.

Some insurers require you to pay administration or cancellation fees when you cancel your policy before the end of its full term. You also need to understand the way in which your current insurer calculates refunds since some companies ask you to make payment for the month that has already started while others refund customers on a day-to-day basis.

If so, you can go ahead and arrange for your MAPFRE insurance to start straight away and then contact your existing company to cancel your policy as of the date your coverage with MAPFRE begins. This will ensure you remain covered at all times while finalizing the switch.
