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.

The best way to make the negotiation process move smoothly is to document your property damage and medical expenses as much as possible. The more evidence you have, the better your chances are of having your claim settled. Generally, bodily injury claims are more complicated to settle than property damage claims.
You should also remember that insurance companies don’t always operate with your best interests in mind. So, don’t feel obligated to accept the first settlement offer that they make, especially if you know that you’re entitled to more.
If negotiations are unsuccessful, you can consider hiring an attorney to help you through the process. But if you think the insurer is acting in bad faith, then you should report them to your state’s regulator.
