What happens to the insurance policy if the main policyholder has died?

The policy can continue for up to thirty days from the date you notify us of the bereavement. This will help give you time to decide what you want to do with the vehicle. Maybe you want to sell it or transfer it into someone else’s name. After the thirty days, the policy will automatically be cancelled and cover will no longer be in place for the vehicle. However, if you prefer we can cancel the policy immediately.

If the policy is to be transferred into the name of a named driver, the original policy will be cancelled and a new one will be set up.
