Short term insurance for a car or van

Short term cover, in simple terms, is a vehicle insurance policy that can be bought for a limited number of days – which in our case is 1 day up to 28 days.

Our temporary insurance gives you fully comprehensive, affordable cover for your car or motorhome. We can offer temporary insurance for drivers aged between 17 and 75 (car), 25-80 (motorhome) and for most vehicles over the value of £500.

Providing that you have a provisional licence or have held a full UK driver’s licence for over 6 months or instead have held an EU licence for at least 12 months, we can help you today.

Cover is arranged instantly for anybody wishing to buy online.
