Sample request letter for cancellation of auto car insurance with UK insurer
This sample cancellation request letter for motor car insurance is for a situation where the writer has had his vehicle on Statutory off Road Notification (SORN) for over a year and forgot to cancel the insurance. A lot of people fall into this type of situation because most insurance companies require that you pay your insurance premiums on direct debit.
In general, cancellation request letters are very easy to write. They can be a single paragraph just saying please cancel the service and giving a date when the cancellation is effective. Remember that if you are on a contract you may have to pay cancellation fees. There may be circumstances where fees may be waived and if that applies to your situation, you could ask for the fee to be waived.

Dear Sir or Madam,
RE: Cancellation of Motor Insurance Policy Number: 000000000
I called your customer support and cancellations office sometime last year in about September to cancel insurance for my car but the assistant I spoke to said I would be charged a cancellation fee unless I produced a copy of the Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN). Since I had misplaced the SORN, I could not find it at the time. I have now managed to locate it and I have included a copy with this letter.
Could you please close the account and waive whatever charges are associated with cancelling an account as I have not been using the facility since last year, January 2097. I would also appreciate it if you could consider refunding some of the money. I had completely forgotten about the payments because it was on direct debit.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
