When is the right time to change your car insurance?

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.
