To cancel Allstate insurance, the policyholder must contact their agent directly or call customer service at 1 (877) 810-2920. Your agent may ask you to submit a written request for cancellation. You will need to provide basic information about yourself, your Allstate policy number, and the date you would like your policy to end. Allstate may also ask for the details of your new car insurance policy to verify you won’t be driving without insurance.

Progressive Insurance Cancellation Fees
Customers report a range of experiences with Progressive’s cancellation fees. Some were charged 10% of their outstanding premium, while others paid a flat rate of $50 to $65. Many say they paid no fees at all.
The amount you have to pay to cancel Progressive insurance coverage depends on a few factors, like state laws where you live, how far into the policy term you are, and how often you pay your premium. Check your Progressive policy or speak with customer service to confirm what fees (if any) you’ll have to pay before you cancel.
How to Decide When to Cancel a Progressive Insurance Policy
It’s a good idea to shop around for car insurance and compare quotes from different companies. But make sure you don’t lose more in fees by switching policies mid-term than you gain in lower premiums.
It’s usually easiest to wait until the end of your policy period to switch insurers—just make sure you have a new policy in place before you cancel with Progressive. Driving without insurance can have serious consequences, and a lapse in coverage of any length can make future rates more expensive.

How To Cancel Your Geico Policy
There are a few easy steps to cancel your Geico insurance policy by phone. First, get your Geico policy number ready. Next, call Geico at 1-800-841-1587. When you are prompted by the interactive voice response system, say “cancel insurance policy” and then “auto,” if you’re canceling your car insurance policy. Finally, you will be connected to a customer service agent, who will walk you through the cancellation process.
Before the cancellation is complete, you must pay off any remaining balance on your account. If you’ve already paid your entire premium for the policy period in full, Geico will refund the unused portion.
Things To Consider Before You Cancel Your Geico Policy
Keep in mind that you do not have to cancel your policy just because you’re going through some life changes. For example, if you’ve moved or replaced your current vehicle, Geico can simply update the mailing address or vehicle information on your policy. Geico also allows military members to suspend their policy temporarily if their vehicle will be left unused and in storage for more than 30 days.
On the other hand, if you wish to cancel because you’re switching to another auto insurance carrier, be sure to obtain a new policy before canceling your current one. This helps to prevent a lapse in coverage, which could potentially lead to higher premiums down the road.
