Exactly what you’re looking to do will determine the best way to contact Geico. For instance, to file a claim, you can online, over the phone, or through the Geico mobile app. However, to cancel your policy with Geico, you will most likely need to call 1 (800) 207-7847.
Geico does not have an official time limit for filing a claim. The reason is that Geico cannot deny a claim based on late notice. To deny your claim, Geico would have to prove the delay was unexcused or unreasonable, or that waiting compromised the insurance company’s ability to investigate the claim and make reasonable settlements.… read full answer
Your policy probably includes language about reporting an accident “promptly” or “as soon as practicable.” But reporting an accident is different than filing a claim. After reporting, you’ll have some time to file the official claim.
Still, it’s best to work quickly so everyone remembers the details of an accident, the evidence is still intact, and your claim is less likely to be challenged. After you file a claim, Geico will collect documentation and evidence needed to resolve your claim. The timeline will vary based on the details of your accident.
State laws also protect your right to file lawsuits for a period of one to six years, depending on where you live.
No, you cannot cancel your Geico insurance policy online because Geico requires all policies to be canceled over the phone (by calling at 1-800-841-1587). Geico insurance policies can be canceled at any time, with no cancellation fee.
To cancel your Geico policy, prepare the necessary details including your name, address, Social Security number, policy number, and driver’s license number. You may be asked to provide your new policy information if you are switching insurers.
2. Determine When Your Policy Should End
If you are switching insurers, it is best to have a small overlap between your old policy and your new one to avoid having a lapse in coverage. If you are selling your car, make sure your policy does not end before your car is sold.
3. Contact Your Insurer
The easiest way to contact Geico is to call them at 1-800-841-1587 and cancel your policy with a representative over the phone.
4. Confirm Cancellation
You should receive confirmation of your policy being canceled by mail or email. If you do not receive confirmation by the date agreed upon for the policy to end, contact Geico to verify cancellation.
Geico roadside assistance costs about $14 per vehicle per year, though exact prices may vary depending on the state and the covered vehicles. Geico roadside assistance is an optional endorsement that customers can add to their car insurance policy and use when they need emergency towing, fuel delivery, and more.
Geico roadside assistance is meant to help drivers in need of immediate rescue, but it usually does not pay for the underlying problem, such as engine repairs or a battery that needs replacing. Additionally, the exact number of incidents covered by a Geico roadside assistance plan will vary by state and policy.
Purchasing roadside assistance from your car insurance company is usually less expensive than a motor club membership from a company such as AAA. However, it might not provide as much coverage. For more information about choosing between roadside assistance options, check out WalletHub’s guide to the best roadside assistance.
