Insurance premiums are calculated for the year. If you cancel your policy refunds are usually issued retroactively. So if you cancel your insurance 6 months into your policy, you wil be refunded for the remaining 6 months. It is usually calculated to a daily value, so you will get a refund for the remaining days left in the year.

However, it is up to the insurance compant on what their refund policy is. Some companies will have a cancelation policy of 1 months cost of insurance if you cancel your policy. Most companies however have no fee.

What happens is that you get a new insurance policy, possibly with another insurer. Any unearned premium will be returned to you by your insurer.

The premium is calculated on the basis of many factors. The insurance company will calculate the premium and inform you before you buy the policy.
