One-month car insurance FAQs

Still have questions about one-month car insurance? We’ve compiled the answers to some frequently asked questions below.

What level of cover do I get with 1-month car insurance?

Like all our short-term policies, our one-month car insurance gives you comprehensive cover.

This means that you will have cover for damage to other people’s property or person and cover for damage to your vehicle caused by fire or theft.

Our policies also cover you against several other risks, including accidental damage and new vehicle replacement. You can find out more about what’s covered in your insurance product information document.

What is the excess on one-month car insurance?

How much excess you pay will depend on details about you, such as your age, where you live, as well as details about the car you’re insuring.

You’ll be able to check and confirm you’re happy with your excess before buying your monthly car insurance policy. Once you’ve paid, you’ll be able to check the excess at any time on your insurance certificate.

Are there any restrictions on 1-month car insurance?

Yes, there are restrictions on our temporary car insurance policies.

  • If you’re making a loss or damage claim, the most we’ll pay you is the market value of the vehicle at the time of your claim
  • If the cost of damage or repair exceeds more than 60% of your vehicle’s UK list price at the time when you purchased it, we can offer you a new vehicle replacement
  • If you don’t want us to replace the vehicle, the most we’ll pay is its market value at the time of loss or damage.

Take a look at the insurance product information document for full details on cover restrictions on our monthly car insurance.

Will one-month car insurance affect my annual policy?

No, getting monthly car insurance won’t affect your annual policy. Dayinsure temporary cover is completely separate from any existing insurance you have on your car. That being said, you won’t be able to use both policies if you want to make a claim.

Will I be able to extend my one-month car insurance policy

Unfortunately, if you’ve bought a one-month policy then you will have reached the maximum time allowed for a temporary Dayinsure policy.

However, if you still need temporary car cover, you can simply apply for a new policy.

What is the cancellation policy on 1-month car insurance?

We understand that plans change, which is why you can cancel your monthly car insurance policy at any time. You’ll have two ways of doing this:

  1. Sign in to your Dayinsure account, click on the cancel button for the relevant policy, and follow the on-screen instructions
  2. Find your insurance confirmation email, click on the document link, click on the cancel button, and follow the on-screen instructions.

Find out more about our cancellation and refund policy in our terms of business document.

How quickly can I get one-month car insurance?

You can get cover very quickly. Your 1-month car insurance policy can start in as little as 15 minutes. The insurance certificate will be ready for you to download as soon as you pay for the policy.

Does monthly car insurance cover travel to Europe?

Yes! You can use our 1-month car insurance for journeys to countries in the EU and EEA, as well as Switzerland – as long as the car is in the UK at the start and end of your policy.

Our temporary insurance policies include third-party European cover as standard. But you can also upgrade this to comprehensive European cover when you’re completing your application.

Note that European cover isn’t always the only thing you need to drive in the EU.

Can I get one-month car insurance for a hired or rented vehicle?

No, you can’t. We don’t provide short-term insurance for rented cars or vans. But we can provide you with one-month insurance for a rented motorhome through our temporary motorhome insurance.

What details do I need to provide for a monthly car insurance quote?

Getting a quote is quick and simple. You just need to provide a few details about yourself and the car you want to insure, including:

  • Your name and date of birth
  • Your occupation
  • Your contact details
  • Your GB licence number
  • The car registration.
