To buy your policy you’ll need your driving licence number and payment details (debit, credit card or PayPal).
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 NCD (No Claims Discount).
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 insurance policies provide full business use (but not the carrying of goods or passengers for hire or reward).
All our temp cover policies are underwritten by Aviva 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, additional drivers and daily breakdown cover.
Our policies are standalone, so making a claim doesn’t affect your 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 an incident that is not your fault.
Furthermore, we update the Motor Insurance Database (MID) 4 times a day, so you’re unlikely to be stopped on suspicion of driving uninsured.
Our temp car insurance can cover most drivers aged 18–75 (subject to vehicle and underwriting criteria). We can also able to cover learner drivers, with our learner driver insurance. From one-day to one-month car insurance, we can insure most UK-registered vehicles.
Please note: Our temp car insurance is not available for impounded vehicles.
As well as UK licences, we can cover drivers who hold a full EU, EEA, Australian, New Zealand, South African or Swiss driving licence and have done so for at least six months (reduced to three months if aged over 25).
So, if you’re planning to come to the UK or are expecting visitors who may want to borrow your car, temp car insurance in the UK from 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 cover yourself with our one-day to one-month car insurance services.
