How do I stop my car insurance renewal?

I got a renewal notice for my car insurance and it went up $50! I don't want to renew it at that rate. How do I stop my car insurance renewal?

Answer
Receiving a renewal bill with an increase in your premium is a shocking occurrence. Unfortunately, an increase in rates to your car insurance at renewal is very common.
Car insurance companies frequently change rates and your rate depends on a variety of factors. If you got into an accident, filed a claim, or received a ticket during this policy term, this could have caused a rate increase.
Since you don’t want to renew your policy at your current rate, you need to find a new car insurance company. The easiest way to do this is to request car insurance quotes online or use Jerry.
The Jerry app can provide you with competitive quotes in under a minute and even cancels your old policy for you. Once you gather quotes and find a new policy, you can call and let your current insurance company know that you don’t want to renew your policy.
Since you’re in your renewal period, you shouldn’t have to pay any cancellation fees. Align your new policy to start when your current policy cancels, so you don’t have a lapse of insurance, and you’re ready to get behind the wheel safely!
