    Default Changing insurance

    I've decided I want to change my insurer from pacey to MM but my insurance with pacey doesn't expire until the end of the year. I'm returning to work from maternity next month & would like to use MMs contracts when I renew them all but I know I'm only covered by pacey if I'm using their contracts so I was just going to get insurance from MM starting September & let my other one expire. I know I'm paying out for insurance earlier than I need to but I would rather just start everything fresh when I return to work. Does it matter if they over lap?

    Thanks

    When I left MM for Pacey I got a rebate - might be worth asking

    It's essential that you have continuous cover in order to operate legally. That said, I would avoid having an overlap for too long where you are covered by 2 policies. Insurance companies are notorious for wanting someone else to pay. This happened when a friend of mine had his camera stolen on holiday. The holiday insurance company told him to claim through his home contents insurer, and guess what they told to do....?

    Most regular insurance policies will refund you pro-rata for unused time if you cancel the policy, after deducting a cancellation/admin fee first.
