Can I cancel a newly purchased car insurance policy and get a refund?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Savannah on February 24, 2021

I just got car insurance, but after talking to my parents, I realized it's probably not the policy I want. But I already paid for six months. Would I get a refund if I canceled it? I only bought it nine days ago!

Yes, typically when you cancel your current insurance, you will get a prorated refund, which means that any unused money will be returned to you. For example, if you paid $600 for six months but you only stayed with the insurer for one month, your refund would be $500.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
