What is Impounded Vehicle insurance?

Impounded vehicle insurance provides the coverage necessary to release a vehicle from the impound.

If you wish to retrieve your car from the impound, you must demonstrate that the vehicle has been insured for a minimum of 30 days. With impounded car insurance, you swiftly and effortlessly obtain the required 30 days' coverage.

The cost of having your vehicle impounded can be substantial, and the longer it remains in impound, the more expensive it becomes.

Through our insurance for impounded cars, you can acquire the necessary policy in just 90 seconds, with your insurance documents promptly emailed to you – saving you both time and money.

It is imperative to ensure you possess the correct insurance, as most standard policies do not cover the release of an impounded vehicle. Selecting an inappropriate policy can result in additional expenses, underscoring the importance of making the right choice.


Benefits of our Impounded Vehicle insurance


Our standard temporary insurance policies do not encompass the release of impounded vehicles, given their 28-day duration. Our specialised 30-day impound insurance provides you with the necessary coverage to resume driving.


Failure to reclaim your vehicle or present the correct documents within 14 days may result in its disposal. In these time-sensitive situations, opting for specialised temporary insurance for impounded vehicles is the optimal method to regain possession of your car.


The sooner you secure insurance for your impounded car, the lower your storage fees will be. Our process is uncomplicated and direct, with quotes available in just 90 seconds – aiding you in saving both time and money.


Unsure about the next steps for your recovered vehicle? With our impounded car insurance policies lasting for 30 days, you have the flexibility to decide its fate – whether that involves selling it, declaring it SORN, or returning it to the road.
