How do you get car insurance if it’s cancelled?

I accidentally let my car insurance policy lapse while I was travelling over the summer, but I need my insurance in order to drive! How can I get my car insurance back if it’s been cancelled?

Answer
I’m sorry that that happened! To see if your policy can be reinstated, start by reaching out to your provider.
Some insurers will reinstate a cancelled policy in certain circumstances. However, if yours was cancelled for non-payment, you’ll need to pay all outstanding fees before your policy is reinstated, so you’ll need to keep this in mind.
If your provider does not allow you to reinstate your policy, you’ll need to go shopping for a new one. It’s important to keep in mind that your premium may increase as a result of your lapsed policy, so you’ll want to make sure you get the best deal on the coverage you need.
To do this easily, check out the Jerry app. We’ll get you customized quotes from top-of-the-line providers, so that all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you. And once you pick one, we’ll even help you switch over!
Best of luck with getting your car properly insured again!
