Sample request letter for cancellation of auto car insurance with UK insurer

Updated on July 3, 2011

 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.

If you are interested in finding more samples of insurance-related example letters, visit the Credit Letters website and see the insurance category. Tips on effective letter writing are available here.

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.

Yours Sincerely,


Your Name

Policy Number: 0000000
Vehicle Registration Number: HKK 222KL

      No if you have insurance cagreove that meets your home state's requirements, it won't cost you any more to take the trip for insurance. If you have an accident in another state, your insurance will automatically adjust for another state's higher limits or for no-fault cagreove. For good cagreove, though, you should carry at least 100/300/50 limits. Ask your agent about this.Even if your company doesn't usually write in all states, you're still covered. Just be sure to have the insurance ID card with you at all times, and be sure the license for anyone who might drive is current. Also, be sure your policy is paid up for at least the length of the trip.We did the same thing in the summer of 1988 a 31-day, 7000-mile trip out west, including several states where our regular company doesn't normally write insurance, and had no problems at all.Enjoy!

      You have to have your insurance and dooctr change your address in their records. I got my own insurance and live on my own. The insurance has my new address but the dooctr didnt. So I had to make sure both were changed.

      Sure, pay for the visit out of pocket, intesad of using insurance. The policyholder (your father) will get an explanation of benefits, showing the doctor charge. If you're NOT a dependent of your father, you should have your OWN coverage. As long as he's covering you and both of you are agreeing that you are his dependent (otherwise, you wouldn't be using HIS insurance!), he's entitled to this info.
