Temporary car insurance is a growing market in the UK where drivers can often get much cheaper and more efficient deals than paying for an annual policy.
The needs of motorists are becoming more flexible and there are now a range of short term products that cater for those situations where a standard policy is not suitable.
For instance, students that live at home during the summer months but are away in the city during the academic term may only use a vehicle for a few weeks at a time. In this scenario, temp cover could be the perfect way to ensure they are covered while driving for the few weeks they need.
For those who already have an annual policy for their main vehicle, but need to drive a friend’s van or car for a short time may also benefit from a short term quote. Taking out a separate policy will often also protect your existing no-claims discount you may have built up should anything unforeseen happen while borrowing another motor.
