Many people often require van insurance on a temporary basis. There are providers that sell daily van insurance to customers on a one-off basis. Typically, these policies are bought by customers who will only require cover on a very short term basis, as it is usually more cost effective to purchase more long term policies rather than extending daily cover in most circumstances.

There are a number of circumstances in which a daily van insurance policy may be required. For example:

  • Your current van may be undergoing repairs, requiring you to rent a replacement for the day
  • You may have purchased a new van and need to drive it away the same day
  • You may need a friend to drive your van or you may need to drive a friend's van temporarily
  • You may be moving home or transporting goods, requiring the short term use of a van

Regardless of the reason, it should be remembered that it is a legal requirement for drivers to have insurance whilst they are on the road. Daily van insurance or short term cover could be a preferable alternative to taking out a longer policy in many instances.


Daily van insurance could benefit you if you are using the van to travel in and around the country for a short period of time. Many companies will not allow you to travel overseas with a daily van insurance policy.


The premiums that you pay will depend upon certain conditions:

  • Your age
  • You driving history (convictions and points on license.)
  • Whether you will be using the van for personal or commercial purposes
  • The type of cover you chose


Daily van insurance quotes are likely to vary depending on which insurance company you take out a policy with. Researching and comparing van insurance quotes online can usually help to save you some money and find the best deals.
