Keeping my insurance after selling my car

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on December 23, 2020

I'm going to sell my current car. I don’t plan on buying a new one for a few months. Do I need to keep my insurance?

To make sure you are able to keep your continuous-insurance discount for when you purchase a new vehicle, you’ll want to either keep your current policy active or purchase a non-owner policy for the length of time you are without a vehicle. Otherwise, once you go over 31 days without insurance, you will lose all discounts for having prior insurance.

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👍
