Once You cancel your trial, You will immediately lose access to the relevant applications.

Once an Application is available to You through Your account, You should check the Application as soon as reasonably possible to ensure that it downloads and performs as stated, and you should contact the developer concerning any defects or performance issues in the apps, as described in the Google Play help center. You may return Applications that you purchased if the Service does not perform as stated with respect to that purchased Application, and Google will provide at its option either a replacement Application or a refund of the purchase price. If Google elects to issue you a refund, the refund of your purchase price shall be your sole remedy. Google reserves the right to issue refunds or credits at its sole discretion. If Google issues a refund or credit, it is under no obligation to issue the same or similar refund in the future.
