eric has a 21-day cooling-off period where you can cancel your cover for a full refund – unless you’ve claimed within this time.

How to switch car insurance providers

Switching car insurance providers is more straightforward than you might think; there are only two ‘steps’ to it! Before you do switch, you should make sure it’s the right decision for you, and a great way to do this is by comparing your policy against a range of others out on the market.

To switch car insurance providers, you need to:

  • Cancel your current policy. A good time to do so is when your new payment cycle or annual renewal is coming up, so you can use up the cover you’ve paid for. Of course, you can cancel your policy at any time you wish. You can even set a specific date for your policy to cease and receive a refund of the portion of any premium you have paid for (after the cancellation date less any non-refundable taxes and charges).
  • Find a new policy – and sign up for it! It really is this easy. Choose a new car insurance policy and set the start date as the same day your old policy expires, to make sure you’re continuously covered.
