Emergency car insurance

Make sure you’re covered for any last-minute issues with the great value emergency car insurance we offer at Dayinsure. Short term temporary car insurance can be a real lifesaver when you need fast and convenient cover for those unexpected moments in life.

It could be that your car won’t start, and you need to borrow your partner’s vehicle to get to work for an important meeting, or that you’re visiting friends, but the designated driver has fallen ill so you need to get behind the wheel. Whatever the situation, the temp car insurance for emergencies we provide offers the perfect solution.

Car Insurance for Emergencies

All our car insurance policies are underwritten by Aviva, the largest insurer in the UK. If you require car insurance for emergencies, then the fact that you can get your insurance certificate in about two minutes by applying online and it will start within 15 minutes of making a booking is ideal.

There are various situations when you may require emergency car insurance:

  • Your car won’t start so you need cover to drive a friend or family member’s vehicle
  • Somebody else’s car won’t start
  • A relative needs to borrow your car
  • To give a learner driver a quick lesson
  • The driver is ill or unable to drive back so you need insuring for an hour or two
  • Rushing to the hospital but your car is blocked in, so you require cover for the car that’s easiest to get out

Plenty of other reasons for requiring emergency car insurance exist as well. It doesn’t have to be just for a car either, we provide temporary van and motorhome insurance for use in emergencies. Business use , free legal expenses cover and no impact on your No Claims Discount (NCD) on annual policies if you have a claim are included.

Please note: Legal Expenses Cover is not included on Learner Policies.

The emergency car insurance is flexible to cover anywhere from one to 30 days for drivers aged 18 to 75. If it’s learner driver emergency insurance, then this is available for 17 to 75-year-olds for periods of two hours to five months.
