If I cancel my renters insurance policy early, am I entitled to a refund?
Do you get a refund if you cancel renters insurance? Once I get married, I'm going to give up my apartment and cancel my renters insurance. Will I get a refund for unused coverage?
Congrats on your engagement!
To answer your question, yes. If you have paid for your renters insurance but cancel before the term is up, the insurance company will typically refund you any unused premium.
There are some companies that have cancellation fees. But even if you are subject to a penalty for canceling, in the long run, it may still be better to cancel. Speak with your insurance agent for details specific to your plan.

Why did my car insurance rate change after I submitted a claim for flood damage?
Why did my car insurance suddenly go up? My car was deemed a total loss after a flood in my area. I've decided to get a new vehicle and I'm looking to get coverage again. When I called my insurance company, they quoted me $400 a month when I was previously paying $200. Other carriers are quoting me around the same price. Why did the rate increase?
