If you’re a young driver or are looking to insure someone who is, then temporary car insurance for under 21s provides a great solution. For a variety of reasons, not all young drivers will need to be behind the wheel of a car every day of the year, so it may save you money to only get temporary car insurance for young drivers when needed rather than taking out an annual policy.
At Dayinsure, we offer everything from day car insurance for under 21s to 28 days’ insurance. All policies are underwritten by the UK’s largest insurer, Aviva, on a comprehensive basis and create a quick and easy way to get covered, so you can have peace of mind that your short term cover is just as reliable and secure.
Uses of temporary car insurance for under 21
There can be many reasons why you may require temporary car insurance for young drivers, such as:
- Test driving your potential first car.
- Practise driving in a borrowed car.
- Adding an additional driver to a policy, if the main driver is ill for example.
- Borrowing a bigger vehicle to head out on a road trip with your friends.
- Taking your belongings back to, or from, university in your friend or parent’s car.
- When there’s a small gap between one insurance policy ending and another starting.
- Making a business trip or driving to an interview.
Most young drivers aged between 18 and 21 can be covered, though it will be subject to vehicle and underwriting criteria.
If you only have a provisional licence and want to learn to drive in your own or a friend or family member’s car, learner driver car insurance is available for those aged 17 and upwards, on a more flexible basis from short periods of two hours up to five months.
