Week car insurance FAQs

Can I insure my car from one week to the next?

Yes. You can insure your car (or someone else’s) to drive for a week and then tap the app for a second policy should you need more cover. If you’re not sure exactly how long you want there is no need to commit right away! Select the minimum time you need to get started and return to the app later, up to a total of 28 days.

Can I insure my car for weekends?

Yes. You can insure your car for the weekends that you want to use it. Simply download the Zixty app, register your details and the car registration and select the weekend start and end date and time. Should you want to insure your car for more than one weekend, your details will be saved in the app so you can set up cover as and when you need it.

Can I leave my car uninsured for a week?

No. It is illegal to leave your car uninsured for a week without declaring it as SORN. This applies to anywhere that you park it, whether that is on the road, in a driveway or in your garage. Temporary car insurance can be a good option to provide cover for your car if you find that you may be uninsured for a week or just a few weeks. If your car is kept off the road for longer than temporary insurance can provide cover, you will need to declare it as SORN. Zixty provides insurance for up to 28 days.
