There may be times when you need to borrow a friend or relative’s car for just a few days or equally, they may need to borrow yours.
Maybe you would like to test drive a car, or perhaps you need more space to transport people or belongings. Often it makes more sense (and certainly costs a great deal less) to borrow a car from a friend, relative or colleague.
We have arranged short term car insurance for over one million customers to provide complete peace of mind and safeguard their no claims bonus. Temporary car insurance is available for any roadworthy vehicle, worth more than £800. Our comprehensive one day car insurance cover can also be extended to a full month if required.
Whether it’s for an emergency or a planned cross-country road trip, never pay full price for a standard full length policy if you only need temporary car insurance for a day, a week, or a month. Daily or weekly car insurance allows infrequent drivers the freedom to drive only when you need to.

Taking temporary cover has benefits other than saving you money, it can also help protect your No Claims Bonus. Adding someone else to your existing personal cover may jeopardise your no-claims bonus should there be an accident, and any claims made could increase the following year’s premium.
Temporary car insurance policies are separate to any other existing car insurance policies, so any accidents or claims made won’t affect your personal car cover if you weren’t the one driving.
Best of all, you can get immediate cover from the moment you've bought your temporary car insurance policy. It only takes a few minutes to get a quote!
You've got Car Insurance, why not Home, or Commercial Insurance for your business, and consider our Optional Extras, Breakdown Cover, Gap Cover and many more, to make sure you're well protected and to give you peace of mind today.
