Day car insurance
Day car insurance is a convenient option for temporary cover to drive a car. This type of insurance allows you to drive your own car, a friend’s car, or even take a test drive with the owner’s permission. It provides the cover you need without having to commit to a long-term policy.
Same day insurance
Sometimes known as “Same day insurance”, it can be for as little as an hour and up to 28 days. You can get a car insurance quote and be covered in just an hour for as many hours or days that you need (up to 28 days). If you’re not sure how much you need, you can choose the minimum amount and use the app a second time if you need more later.

Car insurance lapses
Day car insurance can help if your annual car insurance has ended. You can take out daily insurance to cover your driving whilst you shop around for the best deal on your annual car insurance. You may also want to use daily car insurance instead of buying an annual policy. If you are not driving regularly and want to save money on your car insurance then day car cover could be best for you. Take only the cover that you need for the hours or days that you want.

Day car insurance FAQs
What is day car insurance?
This is a type of temporary car insurance cover that provides coverage for a specific number of days or hours. This type of insurance is often used by people who need to borrow a car for a short period of time, or want to share the driving on a long trip, or who want to insure a car they’ve bought to get it home.
How does day car insurance differ from annual car insurance?
The main difference between short term car insurance and annual car insurance is the duration of the coverage. Day car insurance provides cover for a specific number of days, while annual car insurance provides ongoing cover for a year. Daily car insurance is also often more flexible and customisable, allowing the policyholder to choose the specific number of days they need coverage for and extend the cover when they want.
