  • Death of policyholder

    If there is now a new vehicle owner, the policy needs to be re-keyed as new business.

    If there isn't a new vehicle owner, the policy is fine to continue however the policy MUST be transferred into the name of the executors; the named drivers can continue to drive the vehicle.

    If an additional premium appears when transferring the policy into the name of the executors please contact us on 0330 024 6884.

    Please refer all other queries either by telephone or email.

    Please note that NCD Proof can only be provided for cancelled / lapsed policies. 

    Please email us at brokerhelp.ins@axa-insurance.co.uk including the following information:

    • Brokerage Name
    • Customer's Full Name
    • Customer's Address
    • Policy Number
    • Vehicle Registration

    If you are not / were not the holding broker for the policy when it was in force, please confirm within the email that you have been granted permission from the customer or holding broker to obtain proof.  If you have not been granted permission to request this information, unfortunately we will not be able to action your request.

  • Green Card enquiries

    A Green Card is an internationally recognized document that serves solely as evidence that the holder has the minimum cover required by law in the visiting country (for example, Third Party Liability cover).

    It provides NO Insurance cover in itself and the policyholder must ensure that they have their Certificate of Insurance with them when travelling abroad.

    Please check that a green card is required for travel prior to submitting a request.  You can view which countries require a green card within the FAQ below “Which countries require a green card?”

    Please email us at brokerhelp.ins@axa-insurance.co.uk including the following information:

    • Brokerage Name
    • Customer's Full Name
    • Customer's Address
    • Policy Number
    • Vehicle Registration
    • Post to broker / Post to client
    • Start date of green card
    • End date of green card
    • Please list ALL countries that are being travelled to
    • Please name all drivers, including temporary drivers that will be using the vehicle abroad.  All drivers MUST be named on the policy.

    Drivers that will be using the vehicle whilst in a foreign country must include any temporary drivers named on the policy.  Please also provide the names of all the temporary drivers included on the policy.

    It is not always necessary to travel with a green card providing the insured takes their Certificate of Insurance. The table below covers off the main countries travelled to and shows whether or not a Green Card is compulsory. If the country is not listed, we are unable to provide cover, even for an additional premium, as they fall outside the Green Card system:

     Green cards are NOT required for travel in: Green cards are compulsory in:
     Andorra  Albania 
     Belgium  Belarus
     Bulgaria  Bosnia and Herzegovina
     Croatia  Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM)
     Cyprus  Islamic Republic of Iran
     Czech Republic Denmark  Israel
     Estonia  Moldova

    Under the policy wording the insured may drive abroad for up to 93 days in any one period of insurance without giving us prior notice.

    No additional premium is charged for this, although the period is limited to 93 days per annual policy cover and the client file or the brokers records must be noted of any trips we are informed of.

    If you have a request to extend the 93 day limit please refer to AXA and contact us on 0330 024 6884.
