We can help:
Did you know? It is a common belief that all annual insurance policies cover you to drive other cars. This is not always true. 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).
