    Car Insurance - Moving home

    Car Insurance - Moving home 20th Apr 17 at 8:10 PM
    I paid my annual car insurance in 1 go back in February, however now in a few weeks I'll be moving about 80 miles away to a new job.

    Now I know the usual thing would be to inform my insurers (and the DVLA) about my change of address, however I do not yet have a firm address.

    I plan to be staying with friends in the area temporarily while I sort out my own accommodation. But what are the rules on updating address changes when the change is to a temporary address (while I plan temporary to be no more than a few weeks but could extend into a month or two depending how the search goes!)

    Many thanks for all and any help!

    Discuss the issue with your insurer, and make sure they confirm any decision with you in writing.
