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.

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.

In most states, The General will charge a cancellation fee of 10% of the premiums that remain unpaid for the policy period.

Your written notice of cancellation to The General should include your:
Name, address and phone number
Social Security number
Date of birth
Driver’s license number
Preferred date for policy cancellation
It’s good to regularly shop around for lower cost auto insurance coverage. Rates change over time, and the company that was the cheapest for you yesterday may not be the cheapest today. With The General’s cancellation fee, however, you need to make sure you don’t lose more in fees by switching policies than you’ll gain through lower premiums. Timing your policy cancellation is important, and it may be worth waiting until the end of your policy period to do so.
Be sure to have your new policy in place when you cancel your old one. It’s against the law to drive without car insurance for any period of time.
