Frequently asked questions

Why should I look for new quotes ahead of my renewal?

Competitive prices on car insurance are typically offered three weeks before your current policy’s end date. By setting up automated quotes once, we can look for cheaper quotes every year.

Lots of research shows that consumers are being penalised for loyalty when it comes to renewal, rather than switching to find a better deal. Most drivers underestimate how much they could save by switching – in fact, it could be hundreds of pounds.

Will you renew my car insurance automatically?

No, we’ll never automatically renew your policy – and it’s up to you to decide when to switch your provider.

What do you base the renewal quote on?

The price we give you is an estimated quote, based on the details you’ve supplied previously. So make sure you give us accurate information when you set up your reminder.

It will be an estimated price from some of our insurance providers based on the details – including your claims history, if applicable, – you previously told us about when you completed a car insurance quote. Your No Claim Discount, and the number of years each driver has held a licence or been resident in the UK for, will also be updated – to save you having to do it yourself.

Can I turn the auto quote service off?

Yes, you can turn it off any time you want. Just change the settings in your Compare the Market account.

When will you notify me about my car insurance renewal?

 If your account preferences are set to receive a renewal quote for car insurance, we’ll email you at least 21 days before your car insurance policy start date. Please note this is included as standard as part of the service we provide and if you’ve opted out of marketing communications you will still receive our renewal email 21 days before your policy start date.  If you would prefer not to receive a renewal quote you can change your settings at any time to turn off this feature either in your account or by following the links in any future emails.

Does the service cost anything?

No, it’s free, as with all our other products we help you compare. We’re here to help keep life simple…
