You might fancy getting away for the weekend but need to borrow a friend or relatives car. With annual car insurance, you would need to go through the hassle of changing the policy, which might incur charges. With our short term insurance, you can buy separate insurance for the vehicle, and it won't affect your annual car insurance policy.
When you get your online quote, simply tell us how many days you would like the cover for (up to 28). You can also specify when you would like the temporary cover to start, so you can buy in advance. You could even add more than one driver if you plan on sharing the driving.
Maybe you're borrowing a friends new car for a day. We can provide 1 day insurance or 1 month insurance, or anywhere in between!
Temporary car insurance could be just what you need if you plan on driving a different car for a short time. We don't just provide temporary car insurance though, we can also provide temporary van insurance and temporary motorhome insurance. Fancy a week away in a motorhome? Our insurance could be cheaper than your motorhome rental company, and we have optional European and Breakdown options as well.
If you're planning on driving during a holiday, or you want to share the driving with a partner whilst your away, our temporary car insurance lets you do just that.
You might also need to borrow a car for other reasons, you may need a car with a tow bar, or an estate to carry more luggage, that's when temporary car insurance comes into its own
Just bought a new or used car? Our temporary car insurance lets you get the car home whilst you organise more permanent insurance. You may not have annual insurance already and wish to take a private car for sale on a test drive, or you might just want to try out a friend's or family member's car to see if you like it.
Maybe your kids are home from University for the weekend, or want to drive to a gig or festival. Annual insurance or adding them to your policy can be expensive, and could risk you losing your No Claims Discount. The alternative is to purchase temporary car insurance only when they need to drive. That way they get to use your car, and you know your No Claims Bonus is safe!
There are hundreds of reasons you might need to drive a van, from moving home to picking furniture up from a lucky eBay purchase! Rather than hiring a van for the day, you could borrow a friends van but get temporary can insurance in your own name. That way your friend won't be liable if you have an accident.
