As a student, you may not need to drive all year round. That’s why at Dayinsure we offer short-term student car insurance for those who only require cover for a short period anywhere between one and 30 days. It’s fast and easy to buy, can be a more cost-effective choice in certain situations and you can be covered within 15 minutes of making a booking.
Benefits of Student Temporary Car Insurance
Whether you need cover during term time or the holidays, our student car insurance provides a quick and convenient solution. All our policies are underwritten by Aviva, the UK’s largest insurer, on a comprehensive basis. Plus, our policies are all standalone, which means that if you do make a claim there will be no effect on your annual policy’s No Claims Discount (NCD).
Free legal expenses cover is included with all our policies to protect your interests and costs, which can be an especially high priority for student drivers on a budget. A variety of optional extras, such as additional drivers, European and breakdown cover, can be added if required, too – all without affecting your no claims bonuses on other policy’s.
