How to Renew Your Car Insurance Policy

January 27, 2012

When it is time to renew your car insurance policy, you have a few choices. Most car insurance policies come up for renewal every 6 months, sometimes 12. With so much of today’s business being done online, such a thing as online renewal for car insurance policies exists. It is a good idea to contact your car insurance agent to verify this. You can also inquire about automatic renewal of your policy. Whichever way you choose to go about renewing your policy, the process is fairly straightforward. 

Call Your Agent… 

If you have a car insurance agent, give them a call. If you don’t have an individual whom you work with, there is without a doubt a contact number for your insurance company. They will be able to answer any questions you have about your policy renewal and other car insurance information you need. Perhaps you are already signed up for automatic renewal, but you just don’t know about it. Your agent will help you find out. 

…Or Check Online 

You may be able to gain the information you need online. If you are enrolled in either automatic online bill pay or you have an online account with your insurer, visit the FAQ section once you have logged in. There you might find the answers to your questions about policy renewal. Chances are there is something. If not, perhaps contacting an agent over the phone would be easiest.

Many insurance companies offer online renewal for their current customers. This might be as simple as a few online steps. You will have to re-verify your personal information and let them know if any changes to your policy need to be made. Other than that, the process will save you a lot of time and hassle. 

Automatic Renewal 

You may be enrolled in automatic renewal for your policy when the time comes and not even know it! If you know this to be the case, don’t worryyour policy will be renewed automatically. If you aren’t sure, contact an agent of the insurance company, and they can fill you in. 

Renewing a car insurance policy might as easy as doing nothing, or you may have to make a phone call or follow a short process online. Either way, it can be done quickly because the insurance company wants to keep your business.
