A typical car insurance policy lasts for 12 months. That's great if you use your car frequently, but not so great if you're an infrequent user or only have access to a particular car for a short period of time. In this scenario you might only require insurance for one day, a couple of days or a couple of weeks.
That's where temporary car insurance comes in; enabling you to insure a car for the exact duration you require, from a minimum of one day to a maximum of 28 days, it could save you a small fortune when compared to the cost of taking out an annual policy.
When you buy temporary car insurance from One Call Insurance, you'll have access to a whole host of features and benefits, these include:
As standard we provide fully comprehensive temporary car insurance. This ensures you're covered should you be involved in an at-fault accident, fire or theft and not simply in instances where a third-party is at fault.
We offer temporary car insurance with instant cover (subject to a 15 minute delay). It's great if time is against you, we'll even email you confirmation of your cover so you're good to go.
Alternatively, you can select a specific start time.
You can buy temporary car insurance for the exact number of days that you require it, whether that be just a single day, a whole weekend or even a couple of weeks. However, the period of cover must be for a minimum duration of one day and cannot exceed 28 days.
Furthermore, if you initially buy temporary car insurance for a week, you'll have the flexibility that allows you to quickly and easy extend it by a day, a few days or even a week if needed.
Insuring your car on a temporary policy won't put your hard earned No Claims Discount (NCD) at risk. You also won't have the hassle of obtaining proof of NCD from a previous insurer as it simply isn't required.
Our temporary car insurance comes with optional breakdown membership. After all, can you imagine anything worse than being stranded at the roadside without an obvious means of recovery?
When buying temporary car insurance, you'll have the option to extend your cover for use in Europe. It's great if you're off for a weekend in Paris or you're embarking on a multi-stop European road-trip.
If you need to insure a car, but only plan on driving it occasionally or have access to it for just a couple of days, temporary car insurance could save you a small fortune as you won't be paying for days on cover that you don't need. Specifically, temporary car insurance might be suitable if:
In order for us to provide you with a quote for temporary car insurance you must meet the following criteria:
UK law dictates that a motor vehicle must either be insured or SORN. So, for example, if you have temporarily insured a car, upon the expiration of the insurance policy you must either extend it, take out a new policy or SORN your car (effectively declaring it off road). There is no grace period or in-between. If you fail to meet this legal obligation, you could be handed a fine of up to £1,000.
