“Suspending your car insurance will essentially put your policy on pause until you’re ready to resume coverage. While pausing your policy might sound like a good idea if you’re trying to save money, there are some things you should know.
Some companies might not let you suspend coverage, or they might only allow it under special circumstances. Check with your insurance company to see if they’ll allow suspension for your situation.
