How to Cancel Audible Free Trial or Regular Membership 2019
Many users tend to cancel audible membership just before their free trial gets over.
The reason is simple. They just wanted to give Audible a try and see if it is something of their interest. And that is totally fine. If you are not prepared to continue with the membership, you can easily cancel it whenever you want.
You can come back again at any time and restart your membership. There is no restriction.
Even if you are a regular Gold or Platinum member, the process to cancel Audible membership is the same as that of canceling Audible free trial.
But, keep in mind that if you cancel your Audible membership, any unused Audible Credits associated with your account will be terminated.
So, it would be best to try and use all of your credits before you make the final decision to end your membership. Remember, any audiobooks you purchase (even during your free trial) are yours to keep forever, even if you are no longer a member. So, be sure to use those credits.
Please Note that you can cancel Audible membership only through Audible’s official website and not through the Audible App.
Moreover, the steps to cancel Audible membership on mobile is slightly different from that on a desktop. Both of them are explained below.
TWO IMPORTANT UPDATES (December, 2019)
Update 1 : Currently, Amazon is offering Audible membership at just $6.95/month instead of $14.95/month to new Audible members on first 3 months. This is a limited-time offer. Here’s the link to this offer page.
Update 2: Amazon is also offering 3 Free Audiobooks to new Audible members (Those who haven’t taken the free trial before) during the free trial.

How to Cancel Audible Membership on iPhone or Android
Though the steps for canceling Audible membership on mobile are almost the same as that on a desktop, there is one problem. In most cases, you won’t see the ‘Cancel Membership’ option in the mobile site when you visit the Membership details page in your Audible account.
You can check it yourself. Log in to your Audible account using your mobile browser.
Here’s the home page as seen from Chrome on Android.
Click on the Menu button on the upper left corner. From the Menu choose ‘My Account’, and then click on ‘View Membership Details’.
Unlike, desktop site, you will not see the ‘Cancel Membership’ option on the Membership details page.
So, what to do now?
Well, there’s nothing to worry, you just have to take one extra step after you log in to your account using a mobile browser. Just go to the bottom of the page, and find the option for ’Full Site’ and click on it.
Once you click it, you will be redirected to the desktop version of the site.
You can now see the menu bar on top, same as that of the desktop site.
