Short Term Car Insurance
Short term (temporary) car insurance, once a very difficult and expensive policy to buy is now a well established and popular product, which is extremely flexible and which can be bought online within a matter of minutes, making it ideal for either emergency use or for borrowing, or lending, a car. You can insure a vehicle whether you own it or not, provided of course you have the consent of the owner, or someone else can arrange a policy to drive a car that you own. There are two basic types of policy available; one provides cover for any period between a single day and four weeks, and the other runs on a rolling month to month basis from one month up to 8 months maximum. With this type of policy you do not have to choose how long to keep it for at the outset, but you are given the opportunity to cancel it each month without penalties.
In both cases fully comprehensive or third party only cover is available, as well as European cover within the EEC, and breakdown cover. The policies can be purchased online and can either come into effect immediately, or at a time and date within the near future. This means that you can arrange insurance for a vehicle, whether you own it or not, for either yourself to drive or another person, within a matter of moments.
If you opt for the 1 to 28 day cover you are given an e-mailed link from which you can download all your policy documents, so that if you wish to do so you can print them out on the spot. This will provide you of evidence of cover should you need to produce it. With the rolling, month-to-month policy the policy documents are posted out to you in the usual way.
Short term car insurance is available, therefore, for anywhere between one single day and eight months for the majority of UK motorists.
