Ask James Martin, there are many way ranging from around 20 seconds to a minute and edible or not. Where you live, what language you speak, what kind of omelette, what's going in or not. So I would say a couple of hundred or more. An omelette is like cooking a steak, a good chefs nightmare as it requires constant attention and on a busy service, is a right pain...

To put this to bed, I went through some paperwork for clients. In general a simple call to the assureur does the job. Here is another common way to ask "une attestation de l'assureur (relevé de situation bonus-malus)" comes to exactly the same thing.

Here is a typical letter should you wish to send one rather than call. And yes, you could just as easily put relevé d'information in place and to be fair, probably written more so in that way. My point was only that you can ask for the proof in a few ways and not as determined by geegee by only asking for a "releve"

So now the OP knows precisely what to do !

geegee, if you have lived here for sometime, it is too simple to say "If I want a loaf of bread, or a beer I ask for them,. Well next time sit in a bar and listen to the ways a beer is asked for, listen in a boulangerie and see how many ways bread is asked for.

An attestation de bonus malus is no less a way to ask for a releve, DN, it is no different, you would receive exactly the same thing. FGS I must have asked for the releve and /or attestaion too many times to even know how many and whatever of the two I said, the same thing was known to the assureurs. Why in hells name wouldn't it be! Quite unbelievable !

The releve d'information is a bit more than just bonus/malus. Its contents are controlled by law.

There is a requirement on an insurance company to provide you with this document if you request it, they must supply it within 15 days. It is a simple request it can be by phone or letter it does not have to be by A/R letter.

It contains, the dates of your insurance, the named drivers, the details of the vehicle/s covered, the claims history, the determination of fault concerning claims, and the bonus/malus which is the actual NCD. It normally covers at least 2years and up to 5.

To get an accurate quote from a new insurer you will need all of these details. Under the law Hamon, the new insurer can have the old insurer send it direct to them. So it can be you do not need to ask for it yourself.

Possibly but if I wanted a loaf of bread I would ask for a loaf of bread, if I wanted a beer I would ask for a beer, and when an insurance company asks me for a releve d'information from my old insurer that's what I ask them for.

No one said you were wrong but you quite firmly said " No you  must ask for a releve d'information" as if there is no other way to ask for proof of no claims. Do you know how many ways you can ask for a loaf of bread, for a drink in a  bar and all would be fine and understood, do you see my point? I rang up and and would ask for an attestation, it is one and the same thing fgs. Weird you say? I really do not think so, this is France.....

You just said "releve d'information not just proof of bonus" which surely you realise is exactly the same thing ?

Weird, every insurance company I have dealt with in France has always asked for a releve d'information, my daughters are now changing their insurances and have been asked for a releve d'information, I am now changing mine and although I am fully aware bonus is bonus be it English or French I have also been asked to provide a releve d'information not just proof of bonus, maybe there are other ways to ask but I am only passing on my experience which may or may not be the experience of others.
