University students can save on car insurance

Given the already considerable costs associated with higher education, burdening oneself with costly car insurance is an unwelcome prospect for any student driver. Mitigate the financial impact of driving during your university tenure or when returning home for holidays by opting for temporary student car insurance, which allows you to pay only for the necessary coverage.


Exclusive temporary car insurance for students

Our exclusive temporary car insurance designed for students, whether aged 18-21 or mature students, ensures affordability. This policy is tailored specifically for university students. To obtain a quote for temporary student car insurance, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a university or mature student with a valid university email address.
  • Be at home from university and intending to drive a parent or other relative's car.

If these conditions do not apply to you or if you are seeking car insurance for international students, we may still be able to provide coverage through our standard car scheme or expat cover. For students learning to drive, we offer flexible learner driver insurance for any private lessons you may need with friends or family while at home from university.
