Are you a student looking for short term or temporary car insurance? Short term insurance can be ideal if you need to cover a car you are borrowing when away studying or going home for just a few days. Here are a few circumstances when temporary car insurance comes into its own:

  • Your car is off the road and uninsured but you are back for the holidays and want to use it while you are home.
  • Family or friends who own a car are letting you borrow it for a short period. Borrowing may well be a lot cheaper than hiring - but don't jeopardize their car or their insurance policy - using your own short term car insurance policy will keep the owner's no claims bonus safe.
  • You are lending your car out to friends or family. Protect your no claims bonus - especially as they may be driving on unfamiliar roads and in a vehicle they are not used to. Taking out a short term car insurance policy means you are covered.

Have a look at our specialist article if you are considering short term insurance to cover a visitor to the UK.

Different companies are more suitable in different circumstances, therefore it's a good idea to try a few before deciding which one is for you. Prices can vary noticeably according to your individual circumstances too.
