All you need is your name, UK address & UK driving licence, date of birth, occupation and the registration number of the car you want to drive.
Decide the duration you need, when you’d like the policy to start and if you want any add-ons.
To buy your policy you’ll need your payment details and you could be on the road in minutes.
Temporary car insurance allows you to get short-term cover, without needing to affect your annual policy. Whether you just need cover for an hour to test drive a vehicle you are thinking of buying, or you need longer cover to bridge the gap between policies, temporary car cover can help.
What’s more, it’s quick to set up, reasonably priced and if there’s an accident your No Claims Discount won’t be affected.
It’s simple and will only take a few minutes to arrange UK temporary car insurance. Cover can start in as little as 15 minutes – easy!
Did you know? It is a common belief that all annual insurance policies cover you to drive other cars. This is not always true and if you do have cover it will almost certainly be on a third-party-only basis. Take out a Dayinsure policy and you will be covered comprehensively. Any claims will not affect the car owner’s No Claims Bonus.
Did you know? A common misunderstanding is that annual insurance policies that cover commuting allow business trips to any location – they don’t! Commuting use only covers journeys to or from your regular place of work – so this could exclude cover if you visit a client, attend a training course or help out at a local branch. Our temp car cover provides full business use (but not the carrying of goods or passengers for hire or reward).
Temporary car insurance is fast, convenient and simple to buy
Our temp cover policies are underwritten by Aviva, our key partner, or other insurers on a comprehensive basis. They include business-use cover and can start within 15 minutes of making a booking whether you want cover for an hour, a day, a week or a month.
On all our temp car insurance policies, we offer a range of optional extras such as comprehensive European cover and daily breakdown cover.
Our policies are standalone, so making a claim doesn’t affect your No Claims Discount (NCD) on any annual policy.
Furthermore, we guarantee to update the Motor Insurance Database (MID) every 7 days and in some cases more often. We always recommend having your certificate of insurance on you during your period of cover.
Our temp car insurance can cover most drivers aged 18–75 (subject to vehicle and underwriting criteria). We can also cover learner drivers, with our temporary learner driver insurance. From 24-hour insurance to one-day car insurance to weekly insurance, we can insure most UK-registered vehicles.
Please note: Our temp car insurance is not available for impounded vehicles.
We also offer temporary van insurance for those who need it.
