There are many circumstances where obtaining temporary car insurance is useful:

  • If you have purchased a new car or a car at auction and you need instant cover to drive it away then a temporary car insurance policy could help you.
  • Many parents wish to insure their children for a short period of time whilst they are home from university or have just learnt to drive. Because insurance for young drivers can be expensive, this could be the cheaper option you are looking for.
  • If you need to rent a larger vehicle than the one you own to pick something up. (E.g. furniture, baggage or even people!)
    If you wish to use another car for a business trip or a holiday.

If you are involved in a road accident and have a standard yearly insurance policy, it is likely that your premiums will sky rocket. However, with temporary car insurance policies your no claims bonus is not affected.


So maybe you have borrowed a friend's car or are using a hire car for a week - temporary car insurance is typically available from 1 day to 28 days and provides flexibility without a 12 month term car insurance contract. Some of the benefits of temporary car insurance include:

  • No long-term commitment - Cover from 1 to 28 Days
  • Pay By Debit/Credit Card
  • Quick and simple to set up

So, if you need to set off soon, you can get the cover you need quickly and easily with temporary car insurance cover.
