Before collecting your new car

Make sure you are registered for MyAviva and have the capability to make the change online. Registration is a quick and easy process. All you need is your email address and your policy number.

Call the garage to get your new car registration and confirm the time you will collect your car.

Then proceed with the following steps to transfer your insurance policy to the new car. Remember you can schedule the transfer to the exact date and time up to 5 days before you collect the car.

How to transfer your insurance using MyAviva Car

Step 1: Log in to your car policy here.

Step 2: Select your policy from the dashboard and the option ‘Insure yourself on a different car’ and enter your new car registration.

Step 3: If you have bought a brand new car the online system may be unable to pull your car details automatically. You can still make this change online* but you will need to input the car details manually; make, model, year and engine size.

*If it is a non-Irish registered car please bear in mind that you will need to ring our call centre Monday – Friday 9am - 6pm on 1890 33 55 77 in order to complete your change.

Step 4: Continue through to ‘Confirmation’ stage which will confirm that your new Insurance certificate, disc and policy documents will be forwarded to you in 3-5 working days. Receipt will be emailed to you if there is an email address on the policy.

If you are trading in your old car, make sure to remove your insurance disc from your old car when you pick up your new car from the garage.

 You can transfer your insurance to... Online Contact Centre*

A new or used car with foreign registration Cross Tick

*For changes made to your car policy for an Irish registered car in the Contact Centre a €25 administration fee may apply.

We wish you safe and happy motoring with your new wheels!

If you are buying or selling a car it is important to ensure that it is registered to its new owner as soon as possible. You can find more information on how to transfer ownership here.
