Can I change my policy start date?

In some cases, it is possible to change the start date of your policy.

I haven't bought my insurance policy yet

You can choose the start date of your policy when you get a quote. Even for as soon as the current day!

Unfortunately you won't be able to change the start date of a saved quote. If your quote has the wrong start date, please get a new quote here and select the correct start date.

Please note: Your policy can only start after you have passed the ID check.

I already have my insurance policy

Unfortunately we can't change the start date of a policy once it's already been set up.

Some customers may buy temporary cover if they need insurance before their policy start date. We don't offer this at Marshmallow, but there are other insurers on the market who do!

The other option would be to cancel your policy with us and get a new quote with the correct start date.

If you bought your policy less than 14 days ago, you can cancel your policy for free! Otherwise, there will be a £50 cancellation fee.

Please note: The start date can have a big impact on the price of your insurance. The price of your new policy may be different to the price of your current policy.
