What happens if I pay for my insurance policy after the due date?
Each insurance company has their own policy when it comes to overdue or late payments. Some will charge you a late fee and others may go ahead and cancel your policy immediately if a payment is not made by the due date. Others may give you a short grace period such as a week or a month, before they cancel your policy.
If you cannot make a payment on time, please contact us before the due date in order for us to try to get you an extension on your payments.Back to TopHow can I pay for my insurance?
Paying for your insurance is easy and can be done the following ways:
Over the phone: All you have to do is call the phone number listed on your policy information and you’ll be able to make a payment. Payments can be made using a credit card, a debit card, a pre-paid card and even by wiring funds through Western Union.
Over the Internet: Most major insurance companies offer a way to make a payment over the Internet. Just access your insurance carrier’s website, which is listed on your policy, and pay your insurance carrier directly.
By Mail: Send your check or money order to the address listed on your policy.Back to TopDo insurance companies self-regulate?Yes, insurance is subject to State regulation. This means they monitor companies for fair pricing of insurance, protecting insurance company solvency, preventing unfair practices by insurance companies, and ensuring availability of insurance coverage. All states have the power to approve insurance rates; to periodically conduct financial examinations of insurers; to license companies, agents, and brokers; and to monitor and regulate claims handling. This also means insurance companies are required to respect the fees they charge their customers.Back to TopWill my insurance get cancelled if I am in an accident?Generally, your insurance carrier will not cancel your policy because you were in an accident. When you file a claim, the carrier will carefully review your policy and your driving history to make sure your policy is still appropriate. If it will be affected, you will receive a notice detailing the changes, approximately 30 days before the new policy takes effect.Back to TopDo all companies offer the same coverage and discounts?No, not all companies are able to offer the same coverage and discounts. At Fastrak Insurance Solutions we carefully research and partner with carriers that can provide our customers with the best coverage options and rates available. Because of our relationships, we are often able to offer lower premiums and better discounts that may not be available through other companies or by purchasing directly from the carrier. And, because our agents are professionally licensed and trained, they know what information to include in policies so customers have the exact coverage they need, and don’t overspend getting something they could really do without.Back to TopHow do I determine what type of coverage I need?
Insurance policies vary greatly depending on a customer’s needs and budget. Our professionally trained agents can help you make sure you’re covered for an amount equal to the total value of your assets so you’re covered in the event of an incident, but you’re not overpaying for something you may not need.

- How much are you willing to spend? If you have plenty of savings and are willing to take the risk that you may have higher out-of-pocket expenses after an incident, you could choose an insurance premium with a higher deductible and a lower monthly payment. If you have limited resources and don’t want to run the risk of paying much out-of-pocket after an incident, you could choose a policy with a lower deductible and slightly higher monthly premiums. Also, be aware of your policy limits. If you choose low limits, you may end up paying out-of-pocket for the difference between what your policy covers and the actual damage.
