If you want to cancel your car insurance policy, you can do so by contacting your insurer or agent. Depending on the company, you may be able to cancel your policy by calling them or through their website. Some insurers may require you to sign a cancellation form or send a written notification.
It’s important to note that drivers must carry a minimum amount of auto liability coverage in nearly every state. Therefore, ensure that you have coverage with another company before you cancel your existing policy.
If you’re wondering whether you can cancel car insurance at any time, the answer is yes. Policyholders can cancel their auto insurance policy at any time, for any reason. Even if your policy only started a few days ago, you may cancel it. Generally, insurers will refund you the money for the unused portion of your policy, assuming you paid in advance.
Here are some valid reasons for cancelling your auto insurance policy:
- You no longer drive
- You’re switching insurance companies
- You’re covered under someone else’s policy
- You’re moving out of the country
If you’re moving to another state, you won’t have to change insurers unless your insurance company doesn’t offer coverage in that state. There’s no need to cancel your car insurance after selling a car if you’re driving a different vehicle. Just let your insurer know about the change in vehicles so they can update your policy.
