We guarantee to update the Motor Insurance Database (MID) every 7 days and in some cases more often but we always recommend always having a copy of your insurance certificate with you during the period of cover. You can drive the vehicle legally between the dates and times shown on the insurance certificate issued to you.
The amount of excess varies – but will be confirmed before you buy your insurance. The amount will also be shown on the insurance certificate once you’ve bought insurance. There isn’t a separate excess for glass claims. The ‘excess’ is the first part of any claim you have to pay. Excess protection is available to add on to your policy.
All policies provide Comprehensive cover.
If you’ve changed any of your personal details you may not be eligible to extend your current policy, we suggest you re-apply for a new quotation.
Please note: If a new quotation is not available it means that you may no longer meet the acceptance criteria for a Dayinsure short term insurance policy.
The refund will be returned to the customer’s account used to pay for the cover.
As multiple transactions will have been made due to you extending the duration of your policy, these refunds may appear on your bank statement/account as more than one transaction.
Provided there have been no claims or incidents likely to give rise to a claim you’ll be entitled to a refund of unused premium.
As you have now amended your policy, you’ll only be able to see the current live certificate and schedule
In your document list held in your Dayinsure ‘My Account’, you’ll be able to view an amended certificate and schedule with the existing start date of your policy but your amended end date of the policy.
