While it’s true, the best time to switch car insurance is just before your old policy is due to expire, that’s not going to stop you buying a new car or moving interstate. It’s certainly not going to stop your teenager suddenly being old enough to start driving.
You don’t have to wait
There are plenty of times during the year when a customer can take a closer look at their car insurance protection, and switch to cover that’s better for their changing circumstances.
Assess what you need
Customers often consider whether they are taking more business trips and spending more time on the road, or whether they having a new job means that their car is garaged pretty much from Monday to Friday. Teenagers getting their L's can also be a factor to consider, as a customer may need to add additional driver to their policy.
Choose the right cover

Thinking about making the switch? These are some important things to consider.
If your current policy is due to expire, simply contact your current insurer before renewal time and notify them of your intention to cancel your policy.
You may be able to still cancel your policy, check with your current policy provider about what’s required and if you can cancel your policy.
Avoid a coverage gap
When you make the switch, be careful to coordinate the dates between cancelling your old policy and activating the new one to avoid any gaps in coverage.
