Car insurance renewal – when is the best time to renew car insurance?

According to Martin Lewis, the cheapest car insurance quotes can be found around 20 to 26 days before your renewal date. After that, the cost becomes more expensive the closer you get to your renewal.

Your current insurer will write to you in advance of your renewal date with details of your new annual or monthly premium, but don’t expect it to be cheaper than other providers. You may find cheaper over 50 car insurance by switching to a new insurer, which is why comparing quotes to find the best deal can be so important

To help you remember your car insurance renewal date and compare quotes at the cheapest time, just add your name, email address and date of renewal to our car insurance renewal reminder. We will then email you a reminder with a link to the car insurance comparison service one month before to make sure you have plenty of time to compare car insurance quotes and find the best deal.
