How To Cancel An Insurance Policy

Oh no! It looks like you want to cancel your GEICO policy. We're certainly sad to see you go, but we're here to make that process easy for you.

If you want to cancel your policy,

  1. Call (800) 841-1587 to speak with a friendly, licensed agent.
  2. If prompted to speak to the Interactive Voice Response (IVR), say "cancel insurance policy" and then "auto."
  3. You may be asked to say your policy number, so have that ready.

Before you cancel your policy, there are a few things you should consider to be sure it's the best next step.

You should consider keeping your GEICO policy if:

Things have changed in your life, like...

  • You've moved, even to another state.

Your policy can simply go with you. We offer insurance in all 50 states and in DC. Get a quick quote online for the state you are moving to. Log in to your account, go to the menu, and select My Policy Details to start a new quote.

  • You had a change in marital status.

Just add or remove your spouse or partner. By doing either, you could qualify for additional discounts. If you're getting married and they own their own vehicle, you could see big savings with our Multi-Vehicle Discount. You can conveniently make changes online or in GEICO Mobile.

You won't be driving temporarily, because...

  • You've sold your vehicle, it was totaled, or it's inoperable.

If you're going to be without a vehicle for 30 days or less, your GEICO policy could cover you while driving a rental. You'll get to keep your tenure, discounts, and benefits through to your next car. Otherwise, Non-Owner Insurance can provide you with coverage for damage to another car when you borrow or rent a vehicle.

  • You are putting your car in storage for more than 30 days.

We offer reduced rate insurance for stored vehicles in case of theft or other damage. Call us at (800) 841-1587 to learn more.

You want to save money or simplify your insurance, because...

  • You want other types of policies with one company.

You can easily get a quote for homeowners, renters, and many other types of insurance through the GEICO Insurance Agency. By combining all of your coverages, you may even get a Multi-Policy Discount on your car insurance!

  • You can't afford car insurance.

It's possible to pay less for your auto insurance by adding discounts to your policy or adjusting your coverage. You can also log in to your account online, go to the menu, and select Discounts & Special Offers to see what additional savings you qualify for. You can also go to My Policy Details to edit your coverage.

  • You found a cheaper rate somewhere else.

A lower rate could mean a compromise in the quality of your coverage. Once you've made sure you're getting the maximum discounts with GEICO, be sure you're comparing it to an identical policy from another company—one that has the same coverage, deductibles, and benefits that you have now.

Do any of these seven reasons apply to you? Just call (800) 841-1587 so we can help manage your policy to fit your needs.

We look forward to helping you.
