How can I find my car insurance policy?

My sister wants me to add her to my car insurance policy since she drives my car. She said she found my car insurance information in my car but has since lost it. This is the first time I've had my own policy, so I'm not really sure what to do. How can I find my insurance policy?

Car insurance is complicated for many first-timers, so being unsure of what to do next is commonplace. However, finding your policy information is easier than you might think.
If you remember the name of the car insurance company you’re with, contact them via phone or online to find out your insurance details. Most insurance companies have apps or online services that allow you to access your policy documents.
You can also check your email. Because most companies have adapted paperless documents, companies will typically email you any important documents or policy information. Things you can search are:
  • Policy details
  • ID card
  • Car insurance
  • Car insurance policy
  • Proof of insurance
If that doesn’t work, check your bank or card statements. How you normally pay for your insurance should show your insurance company’s name. From there, you can follow the steps above.
Since adding a driver to your insurance can impact your rates, consider shopping around for a new policy. Rates vary and you can often find a better price for both you and your sister with another company.
An easy way to explore your options is with Jerry. Jerry is a licensed car insurance broker and app that compares quotes from top insurance providers in just seconds, making the shopping process as easy as possible.
