Q) I want to change insurance companies but my renewal date has already passed, can I still change?

A) Yes you can.  There are no rules that state you have to wait for your renewal date to change insurance companies. Check with your insurance company to see what (if any) the cancellation fee will be. Do not let a cancellation fee deter you from shopping around. The savings you may get from a lower rate with another insurance company may far outweigh this fee. Wondering if you could be paying a lower car insurance rate, shop your rate online, it’s fast, easy and it’s free.
