How to Add a Car to a GEICO Insurance Policy

Adding a car to a GEICO insurance policy can be done quickly.

Adding an additional car to a GEICO insurance policy is a simple task that can be completed either over the phone or online. Before doing so, determine how much coverage you need, if you can afford the increase in your monthly payments and what your new deductibles will be. Even though adding another car to your GEICO policy is simple, it may not be best for your situation. If you know that the person driving the car is unreliable or drives in a dangerous manner, you may not want to add the individual to your insurance.

By Phone

Step 1

Call GEICO's Auto Insurance Sales, Service and Claims department at 800-861-8380. Follow all telephone prompts to speak with a customer service representative. If you have a local GEICO insurance representative, you can contact that person instead. Once you've reached a customer service representative, you will need to provide your insurance policy number.

Step 2

Inquire about adding another vehicle to your insurance policy. You will need to know the vehicle identification number, the make and model, the license plate number, how the vehicle is going to be used, who is going to be driving it, who it was financed through and the registration number.

Step 3

Agree to the amount of insurance you would like on the car. There are various coverage types that you can add to your policy. The GEICO representative will explain the minimum amount of insurance your state requires for each vehicle.

Step 4

Confirm the change in your policy. The added car should be insured within 24 hours.
