I have a three-month family vacation coming up and I won't be using my car at all. Is it possible to pause my car insurance for the three months?

“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.
Keep in mind that while your policy is suspended, you can’t legally drive your vehicle.
Instead of completely suspending your insurance, you may want to keep your comprehensive car insurance. This will protect your vehicle from perils like fire, theft, vandalism, or natural disasters while it’s in storage while allowing you to save some money.”
