Business use insurance

At Dayinsure, business use car insurance is included in all our policies.

There’s a common belief that annual insurance policies cover the use of your vehicle for business trips – but many don’t! Make sure you have the right insurance cover for your needs.

You might need business car insurance if you are:

  • driving to a conference
  • visiting another branch by car
  • splitting the driving with colleagues on a business trip.

How much is short-term day insurance?

Our short-term car insurance starts from just £19/day or £58/week. As with our business car insurance policies, the price of day insurance depends on the car you wish to insure and the driver on the policy. It’s important to remember that the cost of one day car insurance in the UK will be more than what a single day on an annual policy would cost.
