    Default How often can you change car insurance?

    Is there any penalty to changing insurers quickly?

    I moved to Dial Direct last year October and I want to move because their app sucks. It doesn't activate when it is supposed to activate, and that means it doesn't track my trips, meaning I don't get my cashback.

    I think you can change as much as you want, as long as you don't a break (as in skip months with no insurance)

    I've heard somewhere that it can knock on your risk profile.

    I stand corrected.
    Soooo, where do you see yourself in five years?

    You can change every month as long as you comply with the required notice.

    Not sure of any potential impact on premiums though.

    I used to change once a year, for many years. Saved quite a few rand. Nowadays I just don't have the time to call around for quotes anymore, it's also now been the first time in my life that I have gotten increases to my premium. Paying for my laziness basically.
