What is Temporary Cover?

Temporary cover car insurance, or short-term car insurance, is a type of policy that provides coverage for a limited period, typically ranging from one day to several weeks.

It’s designed to offer temporary protection if you don't need year-long insurance coverage. Maybe you’re just borrowing a friend's car, or renting a vehicle, or driving a newly purchased car before arranging an annual policy?

Rather than forking out for a long-term policy and being left with cover you don’t need, temporary cover is better suited to protect you only when you need it. You also don't need to own the vehicle in order to get temporary cover.

Temporary cover is not only easy to arrange, but it’s also convenient and highly flexible, allowing you to get out on the road with minimal fuss and hassle. All you need to do to arrange your temporary cover is get in touch with us, provide us with some information, and then let us compare some options on your behalf before presenting you with our best value, tailored quotes.
