Why choose Temporary Car Insurance?

Temporary Car Cover is available for up to 28 days as opposed to a normal insurance policy, which runs for a full year and is available as Fully Comprehensive or Third Party Fire and Theft. Because you don’t pay for more insurance than you need, short term insurance is ideal for:

  • Borrowing a vehicle for moving house
  • If your car is in the garage and someone has lent you a spare vehicle
  • Sharing the driving with a companion on a long trip
  • A visiting relative or friend intending to borrow your car
  • Insuring a new car so you can drive it home from the dealer straight away
  • Some customers also take out short term car insurance to cover a son or daughter who is back home from University for the holidays and wants to borrow the family car

The other option would be to add a named driver to your current policy, but this might work out as an expensive option that could also potentially endanger your current no-claims discount should an accident occur and a claim made.

The minimum age for some temporary car insurance policies is 21, although we may be able to offer policies from the age of 18. If you have a poor claims history, motoring convictions or points on your licence, it may be more difficult to find cover as insurance companies will view you as a bigger risk, but 1st Choice Insurance will do the utmost to find the right policy for you.
