What are my options if my previous insurer cancelled my policy?

It depends on why your policy was cancelled. Being cancelled by your previous insurer may impact your rates and/or eligibility with certain providers.

If you were cancelled for reasons such as fraud, misrepresentation, DUI, or a major/criminal conviction, your best bet is a call to your local broker. They can usually provide solutions for those scenarios.
