Temporary Car Insurance - Quick Quotes In Seconds
Need to insure a car temporarily? No matter how long you want to insure it for (anywhere between one, and 84 days), you could be compaing quotes within a few seconds!
If you know the registration number that's great; if not, the type and model of the car will do. You won't even need your driving licence details to get a quote (although you will need them to buy a policy) and you can get immediate, online quotes from up to five different insurers.
When you've found the policy you like, just answer a few more simple questions and you're done. Pay online and that's it, you're insured. No need to talk to anyone!
How long will it take to get my policy?
You will be sent a link to your policy online, from where you can print it out if you wish. There's no obligation to do this but it may be best to at least carry a phone with the link to the policy, just in case you need to prove you're insured, for a few days. The MID (the Motor Insurers' Database that the police use) is provided with the policy details by the next working day but sometimes it isn't updated immediately.

What can I use the car for?
The cover is comprehensive and covers you within the UK for the usual social, domestic and pleasure purposes, and commuting to and from your normal workplace, or place of business. It cannot be used for anything you get paid for, such as delivering goods or providing a 'taxi' service (although accepting a contribution towards petrol costs is OK); for this you need a specialist hire and reward policy.
