It depends on the coverage provider. If you cancel an auto policy with partial coverage or temporary insurance through a dealer, you may receive a refund. If you cancel an auto policy with temporary coverage or temporary insurance through a dealer, you may receive a refund for any additional months of coverage you've already paid for. If you temporarily remove coverage from your car insurance policy, your insurer may apply a credit to your account instead, if applicable.

Do you get your money back when you cancel Gap insurance? The answer to that may be music for your ears. You may be eligible for a refund, depending on the terms of the contract. If you just bought your car a few months ago, you'll most likely receive a refund. Most dealers require that the premium for temporary leasing or loan protection be paid at closing.

And that premium can extend for several years. Gap insurance can be canceled at any time, and some drivers can receive a refund if they never used their coverage. Canceling your Gap insurance policy from an auto insurance company is a fairly simple process.

To cancel Gap insurance for a leased vehicle, you may also need to prove that you have a new Gap insurance policy, depending on the details of your contract. If you owe even more for a loan or lease than your vehicle is worth, it may not be a good idea to cancel your mortgage coverage insurance. Unlike auto liability insurance, which is a legal requirement for driving in most states, Gap insurance isn't required when you rent or finance a vehicle. You don't need to buy insurance against additional expenses from your dealer; you usually have time to add coverage against additional expenses to the new vehicle immediately after purchase.

If you cancel your GAP policy early, you'll receive a GAP insurance refund that will reimburse you for part of your unused premiums. You can remove a GAP policy from your auto loan, although you'll need to be careful to make sure you're protected during the transition.
