When is the right time to change your car insurance?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Savannah on December 27, 2020

My current car insurance is pretty expensive and I'm thinking of switching to a different carrier. When's the best time to switch?

The good news is you can change your car insurance at any time; there isn’t a right or wrong time to switch. If you are switching mid-term before your renewal, you can typically get a refund from your old insurance company for any unused premium.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
