There might be several reasons why you want to cancel the old car insurance that you have on your vehicle(s), for example, because you found a better or much cheaper insurance company. One thing is for sure if you call to cancel they will ask you to send an official insurance cancellation letter. Therefore, it's best to send out a formal written letter or email, like our sample letter, that you need to cancel your car insurance.

How do I write a letter to cancel my car insurance?

When canceling an order from a company, the customer needs to provide written confirmation of the change, to avoid any legal issues with the other party. To cancel car insurance, you should prepare a formal letter or email, that includes the following:

  • Policy Information:
    • Policyholder’s name (must be written by the policyholder);
    • Policy number;
    • Vehicle information (Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) of the vehicle(s) on the policy);
  • Your registered address, to send your refund or future documents;
  • Date you want the policy to end / when you need the cancellation to be processed;
  • Date of the cancellation request;
  • Your signature (add a handwritten signature in the email or the letter. If you send an email, you can add a PDF of the letter with your signature, if you don't know how to add your signature in the email.).It is best to do everything right so that your cancellation is processed immediately. Be polite and neutral. Consider the law, and check if, for example, an 8 day, or 30 day notice period is applicable.

This sample letter comes in Microsoft Office format and is ready to be tailored to your personal needs. You can add text, modify the content or remove content that is not applicable, and change the look and formatting. In fact, anything you are able to do with one of your own documents, you can do with this one as well. This letter template is specifically designed to be flexible so that it can be adjusted to your needs and preferences.
