Automatically renew insurance with Progressive?

The following is an exported forum post from our discontinued forum. If you would like to reply to this old forum post, please post a comment below.

I’m 17 years old and just started driving a few months ago. I bought my car insurance thru Progressive.  I bought it for 6 months and the 6 months are going to end soon.  Will they renew it for me automatically? Or do they need to get my approval to do it?

I don’t want them to not renew it and then be stuck without auto insurance for a few days while they wait for payment to clear, etc.. what should i do?

Answer 1

Unless you gave them the go ahead to take it directly out of your bank account, they won’t renew it for you automatically.  If you want to continue with them, call them up to notify them, and send them payment atleast a couple of weeks in advance.

If you want to switch insurance companies, on the other hand, you should do it quicker (start looking now).  Use the form at the top of the site if you would like to compare quotes from other companies.

Also, you might want to look at this article for ways you (as a young driver) can save on insurance – auto insurance for young drivers

Hope this helps.

  1. Trying to find out from someone if they know if your payment to progressive is going to be late, how long do you have to pay it before your insurance gets cancelled? My first 6 months is almost done and monthly bill is due on June 5th. If you can’t pay on that day do they cancel your policy the very next day?

    • Missing a payment will cancel your auto insurance. It can easily be reinstated, but most states will automatically flag you for not having insurance and you’ll owe a large bill. Don’t ever let it lapse.
