Benefits of Temporary Car Insurance

Short term insurance is fast, convenient and simple to buy. All our policies are underwritten by AVIVA on a comprehensive basis, include Business Use cover and can start within 15 minutes of making a booking.

We offer a range of optional extras such as comprehensive European cover, additional drivers and daily breakdown.

Our policies are standalone, so if you do have a claim there will be no impact on the No Claims Discount (NCD) on any annual policy. What’s more, all our policies come with free Legal Expenses cover, to protect your interests in the event of a non-fault incident.

Furthermore, we update the Motor Insurance Database (MID) every day, just after midnight so you’re unlikely to be stopped by the police on suspicion of driving without insurance.

Uses of Dayinsure

Dayinsure is a great option when annual insurance doesn’t give you the flexibility you need, such as:

1. Borrowing a car

2. Adding a temporary additional driver to your car

3. Making a Business trip

4. Any other situation where you need an odd day’s insurance, such as:

Who is Eligible?

We can cover most drivers aged between 19 and 75 (subject to vehicle and underwriting criteria) and we are able to insure the majority of UK registered vehicles.

As well as UK licences, we can cover customers who hold a full EU, EEA, Australian, New Zealand, South African or Swiss driving licence and have done so for at least 6 months (reduced to 3 months, if aged over 25).

So if you’re planning on coming to the UK, or expecting visitors, Dayinsure could be a great option: rather than hire a car for the trip, it might be easier (and cheaper!) to borrow cars throughout the duration of the visit and buy our insurance online as and when needed.
