Most Helpful Review

By Jacquelyne Hoy
My insurance premium was increased by $200 monthly. Contacted Geigo to inform them that we could not afford the increase as only my spouse is working. The first agent I spoke to said that my payment would revert back to what it was but never did. The second agent I spoke to told me the only way to reduce the premium is to decrease my coverage which I did, but the premium never decreased. I called and spoke to a 3rd agent after they deducted the first installment which put a big dent in our household budget. The 3rd agent told me that although I rejected the uninsured motor coverage last time, I was charged again for it this time because, I needed to elect to reject it again when they renewed my insurance and if the agents I spoke to earlier had done a little digging, they could have resolved the issue successfully. I signed the required document online to reject the uninsured auto insurance and was supposed to be reimbursed $200 for the payment they debited from my account. Yet, Geigo has scheduled to deduct the high premium from my account for the October payment. I tried to postponed the payment to have time to get the matter resolved but I could not as Geico is now saying that I owe them $200, I have been a customer of Geico for over 20 years, the last thing I expected is to get more stress and anxiety from the company during such a difficult period for our family.

mister
the worst company ever, they insure you for 6 months at a time then when its time to "renew" they start increasing your rates with no explanation, they give you a speech about if anything happens you want to be covered right" lol they are thief's , not worth it, I suggest any other company besides geico!! raise your rate with no reason then they read some lame excuses LOL what a joke!!

A Geico insured motorist hit my parked car. Of course they are 100% responsible for repairing. The adjuster (Brandon Seiber) skinnied down the estimate for repair such that my car was not fixed properly AND it cost me money with the body shop. The body shop said Geico is the only insurance company this happens with and they do it to their own insured. If you have Geico, you might want to think about truly how well covered you are.
