What Is the GEICO Insurance Refund Policy Like?

GEICO doesn’t have an explicit refund policy. The only information users get is that they can receive a prorated refund for unused services if they cancel their insurance policy in the middle of the billing period.

You’ll be eligible for the refund if you have already paid for the full insurance, and you don’t have any debt towards the company. 

GEICO usually sends the refund check by mail, and sometimes sends the money directly to users’ bank accounts. The policyholders can also be offered a “giveback credit,” which is a discount on the following auto-renewal price of the policy. One example is a 15% credit during the COVID-19 pandemic to all existing and new clients with GEICO insurance policy for their RV, auto, and motorcycle.

How Long Will It Take to Receive GEICO Refunds?

The waiting period between requesting a GEICO refund and receiving it will depend on your payment method on the last insurance bill:

  • Debit or credit card—If you paid your GEICO insurance policy with your debit or credit card, you’ll receive the money five to seven days after canceling the policy and requesting a refund
  • Electronic check or Electronic Funds Transfer—If you paid with one of these two methods, you can expect your refund 12 to 15 days after canceling the policy
  • Paper check—Users who paid the last bill with a paper check will wait the longest for the refund because they will receive their money in the form of a paper check as well. GEICO will need around 15 days to process the refund. The check will be delivered to you a week after that

How to Check the Status of My GEICO Refund Request

The only way to check if GEICO has refunded you for the unused portion of the insurance is to call their customer support and ask them. Keep in mind that it may take up to two weeks for the refund check to arrive. If GEICO still hasn’t refunded your insurance after a month, call the customer service reps by dialing (800) 841-1587 and talk it over with them.

Potential Issues With GEICO Policy Refund

The main problem regarding the GEICO refund policy would be the lack of information and transparency on their website. 

Another serious issue is that a lot of former GEICO users complain that:

  • They never received a refund
  • The refund took too long to arrive
  • They had an unpleasant experience talking to the company’s customer support each time they wanted to ask about the refund
