Car or van insurance for between one day and 28 days
Short term vehicle insurance is now readily available in the UK, including very short period cover from as little as one single day.
Most conventional insurance policies will cover your car for a full year, but there are occasions when you will need temporary cover for a week, a month, or perhaps only a few days. For example: brief, three day insurance policies are very popular in the motor trade when dealers need temporary motor cover for a car or a van that they have just bought from an auction or private seller, and very short period insurance for as little as a single day is popular amongst people who need to cover a car that they have just bought, or who have borrowed a motor, or lent one to a friend, for a few hours.
Whatever the need, cover is available on a temp basis under this type of coverage for a wide range of vehicles for anything between one and twenty eight days. Fully comprehensive short-term motoring coverage is available in the UK and many companies throw in basic third-party cover throughout other countries in the EEC too, which can be upgraded to fully comprehensive for a small extra fee.
A full UK or European driving licence is normally essential, and often a licence for other countries outside Europe is acceptable, such as Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, The Falklands or Gibraltar.
An imperfect driving record with a few penalty points is usually okay and many popular, modern cars can be covered. The joy of most temporary car policies is that they can be bought and paid for online with immediate cover, and policy documents can usually be downloaded and printed out on your home printer which means that you can legally drive the vehicle immediately.
