How to change the vehicle on your car insurance policy

Decided to switch things up and get a new car? Find how how to update your car insurance information online.

Getting a new car is always an exciting time. Whether your previous car was on its last legs or you just decided it’s time for an upgrade, we hope you love your new motor! However, it’s important to remember to tell your insurance provider when you buy a new vehicle. Not only is this required by law, it also helps to ensure you’re covered – if you don’t let your insurer know, you risk invalidating your policy.

The last thing you want/need after getting a new car is to spend hours waiting on the phone to update your insurance policy. That’s why we’ve made it quick and easy to update your AXA car insurance through your online account. Not only does this save you time, you’ll also avoid the £25 admin fee you’d normally be charged when making this change over the phone.

Our step-by-step guide

  1. Log in to your AXA account, choose the policy you want to update and select 'Make a change'.
  2. Choose 'Change car' and set the date when you'd like the change to start from.
  3. Enter the new car details and select 'Get a quote for my changes'.
  4. Follow the steps on each screen - we'll let you know of any price diference before you decide.
  5. Confirm your payment details and select 'Continue' to make your change. Once you see the confirmation screen you're done.

There are plenty of other changes you can make to your car policy from your online account. Take a look at some of them on our ‘Making changes to my policy online’ page.
