Taken Out a Policy Too Early

I've got my renewal date wrong and taken out another car insurance policy too early what can I do?

Unfortunately it is illegal to have 2 policies for the same vehicle in your name at any one time. Most car insurance policies come with a cooling off period. This is a set period of time when you can cancel the policy without being charged a cancellation fee (although some brokers may charge a fee within this period). Check the policy details on the new policy to see if you are still within that period. If you are outside of the cooling off period you will need to cancel one of them. You should check with the individual insurers what cancellation fees apply and choose which policy you wish to cancel.
