General terms of purchase

Here you can read about the terms and conditions currently in force when you purchase insurance at IDA Forsikring.

Right to cancel an insurance (private insurance)

You are entitled to cancel your purchase of a private insurance. The right of withdrawal depends on three situations:

  1. You have talked to one of our insurance advisers when you purchased your insurance.
  2. You have not spoken to an insurance adviser, but used our online insurance calculator when you purchased your insurance.
  3. Your insurance has been changed and you are therefore entitled to change your mind.

You may read more about the right to cancel in section §34i and 34e of the Insurance Contracts Act.

Cancellation/cooling off period

You always have 14 days to cancel your insurance and the start of the deadline depends on how the agreement has been concluded, please see item 1-3 previously mentioned above. Have you talked to one of our insurance advisors when you purchased the insurance, the deadline starts at the end of the following situations:

  1. From the day you have been notified that you have purchased the insurance.
  2. Or from the day you received a clear written notification of your right to cancel.

For distance selling (that is, you took out the insurance online), the cooling off period starts at the end of the following scenario:

  1. From the day you have been notified that you have purchased the insurance.
  2. When you have received the information we are required to provide by law either by mail or letter.

The deadline for coverage changes follows the rules described above. You should be aware that changes are only in the form of an extension of the cover that can be cancelled.

The 14-day cancellation period is calculated as follows: If your insurance comes into effect on Monday the 1st and you have received the information on Wednesday the 3rd, your cancellation period extends to Wednesday, 17th. If the cancellation period expires on a public holiday, Saturday, constitution, Christmas eve or New Year's Eve, the deadline expires on the following day.

Particularly regarding Fire Insurance

We would like to bring to you attention that for fire insurance for your villa, holiday home or property, the right to cancellation is limited by § 60 of the Financial Business Act, so that cancellation is conditional on you documenting within the 14-day period that the building fire insurance has been taken out in another company with retroactive effect.

How to deal with insurance purchase regret

Before the cancellation period expires, please let us know that you have regretted your purchase. You can notify us either by post mail or mail. You may need to prove that you have sent the message before the deadline expires, we therefore suggest that you can send a recommended letter and save the receipt.

 For cancellation during the cooling off period, please send a letter to:
