What are the terms and conditions of my POV insurance in Germany?
Follow the link to check the terms and conditions of your insurance policy: GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS (AKB Volkswohl Bund).
Why are you still debiting my account even though I have cancelled my policy?
You have to send your de-registration form/certificate, shipping papers or your junking papers to firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to: +49 (221) 92548866. Once we have received this information, we will cancel your contract to the corresponding date. Please, prove or send us your actual address and your (German) bank details so we can refund any overpayment. Additionally, please contact your bank and cancel your Recurring Payment Order/ Standing Payment Order to the insurance company (Volkswohl-Bund).
How can I cancel my policy?
In order to cancel your policy, you must provide us with a written request of cancellation before November 30th in order NOT to renew your policy automatically on January 1st. If you ship, sell or junk your vehicle, please provide us with a copy of the de-registration form/certificate from Vehicle Registration (USAREUR, BFG) and we will be able to terminate your policy.
What should I do if I deploy and my vehicle goes into military storage/temporary withdrawal?
If you deploy and your vehicle goes into government storage/temporary withdrawal, you must provide us with a copy of your storage form/temporary withdrawal form. With this form, we will be able to suspend your policy for up to one year. However, please be aware NOT ALL Financing Companies (lien holders) will allow to suspend your policy while your car is in storage/temporary withdrawal. We recommend you to check that out.
Does my insurance cover me while my car/motorcycle is being shipped?
NO, your insurance only covers your vehicle while it is registered in Germany. As soon as you ship your vehicle, this insurance is void. When you ship your vehicle, you must get it covered with MARINE INSURANCE. Get yourself a marine insurance rate here!

If you are registering with BFG or German Registry, you will need a valid international driver’s license. Please be aware that the insurance rate is calculated according to the age of the youngest driver.
