What is Temporary Car Insurance?
Temporary car insurance is simply coverage of one’s motor vehicle for 1-28 days depending on the coverage. Temporary car insurance is perfect for those who may not own a car and may need to borrow a friend’s car for the weekend or may need to borrow a car in the case of an emergency. offers daily insurance for as low as £20 for one day use to as high as a couple hundred pounds for a full month. This is all dependent on your driving history and your age.

It's generally a cheaper and more flexible option than buying a new policy, or amending an existing one. It's ideal for learner drivers, especially if they can't afford their own car or can't get regular driving lessons. Being able to take out insurance as and when you need it could be cheaper in the short-term rather than than taking out a full length policy at full price.

Temporary car insurance can be useful during an emergency where you need one day car insurance or making sure you're able to get around while your car is getting repaired.

When purchasing temporary car insurance, the most important thing is to make sure that your driving history is good. A poor driving history (i.e. more then one accident) can cause your quote to skyrocket and may put you out of the market to buy temporary car insurance.
