What is temporary car insurance?

Whenever you need to use a car that you're not already insured to drive, short-term cover is the flexible and affordable option for you. Temporary car insurance is a time-limited cover that's ideal for when you need to borrow a car at short notice.


How does temporary car insurance work?

Unlike your standard annual policy, temporary car insurance gives you the same level of comprehensive insurance but for a duration that is best for you.

It works in the same way that your usual insurance does except there are no long term contracts. Once the policy duration you choose is over, it will not automatically renew, the policy will simply expire.

You will receive a reminder when your cover is about to end so you can quickly and easily purchase more short-term insurance if you want to.

Can I get temporary car insurance cover?

You will be able to get a temporary car insurance policy, provided that you meet this criteria:

  • You are the holder of a UK or EU driving licence

  • You are aged between 18 and 78 years old

  • You have held your licence for at least 6 months (12 months for EU licenses)

  • Your car is valued between £1,500 and £65,000

You may still be covered even if you have penalty points – although time limits and certain restrictions do apply.*

How much does temporary car insurance cost?

Cover starts from as little as £8.99 for 1 hour. While prices will vary depending on the driver, you'll be able to find great value quotes that range from hours up to 28 days. You will only pay for what you need.
