Temporary car insurance

Temporary car insurance offers easy and flexible short term insurance for a wide range of needs. Whether you own a car and need some insurance, want to share a car with a friend or relative, or want to borrow a car, temporary car insurance is an easy and flexible way to get short term cover for a wide range of needs.

Temporary cover gives you the flexibility to pay only for the time you need – whether that’s one hour, one day insurance, or one month insurance. If you’ve only paid for a short time and need more time, that’s no problem – your details are saved and getting more cover takes a few taps. Temporary car insurance can be taken out alongside an annual policy, and the vehicle owner’s No Claim Discount won’t be affected if you need to make a claim.

Temporary car insurance can be the perfect way to share a car with a friend, or to borrow a car to get some life done. They won’t need to pay to add you to their existing policy, and in the (unfortunate) event that you need to claim, their No Claim Discount won’t be affected.

How much does temporary car insurance cost?

With cover starting from as little as an hour, you can buy only the cover that you need. And if your plans change, get more cover in a few taps. Easy.
