If you want to cancel your Alaska car insurance policy, check your policy language for the proper procedure for doing so. Failure to follow these instructions to the letter may mean that you will continue to be charged for the policy.
The timing of when to cancel the policy is also important. It’s very important to make sure that there is no lapse in coverage, even for a short time. If you are switching from one insurance company to another, arrange for coverage from the new insurance company first and get confirmation the coverage is in place before you contact your former insurer.
You will likely need to notify your former car insurance company in writing that you wish to cancel your coverage. Send the insurer a letter that includes all the information the company will need to make this change, including your full name and address, and your policy number. If you are canceling the policy before its renewal date and you have paid your premiums in advance, you may be entitled to a refund.
To confirm that your Alaska car insurance policy has been cancelled, make a note on your calendar to check with the insurance company a couple of weeks after you have mailed the letter. You don’t want to be paying double premiums because the car insurance company didn’t receive or process your notice of cancellation promptly.
