How short-term car insurance works

Do you need to borrow someone else's vehicle, or add a friend to your car insurance for a day or two?

A separate short-term car insurance policy allows you to cover additional drivers on your vehicle, without putting the no-claims bonus on your main car insurance at risk. Cover is instant and available from 1 to 28 days.

  • immediate drive-away insurance if you've just bought a car
  • unaccompanied vehicle demonstrations or use of courtesy cars
  • any insurance period from 1 to 28 days
