A refund value of the reaming insurance amount is calculated by “subtracting the elapsed days from the total policy term (in days) and then dividing the result by the total policy term. The result is then multiplied by the insurance premium less administrative fees (a maximum of SAR 25)
(365 − elapsed days) /365 × insurance premium less administrative fees (a maximum of SAR 25) = return premium”
The refund amount payable for the uncovered period is deposited to your bank account from the insurance company in Saudi Arabia.
