Car insurance for one day has been
available for several years now, and short term insurance like this is
a tried and tested product with hundreds of thousands of regular users.
Prices are very reasonable, buying a policy is extremely quick and easy, and since it is done
online you can set one up at any time of day or night you wish, from
the comfort of your own home. Policies can be purchased for any
daily period between a single one and a maximum of 28; and although
there are certain conditions (for instance you must be over 19, with
a reasonable car and a fairly decent driving record) the vast
majority of British motorists will not have any problem with the
short proposal form.
What can you insure?
You can insure a car which belongs to you, but
which you have perhaps kept off the road for a while; or you can
cover one that you have borrowed from a friend, neighbour, relative
etc. Alternatively you can lend your own car to someone else who
can insure it in a similar way. Provided that the car you wish to cover is registered in the
UK, is unmodified and is not a personal import it is likely to be on
the insurers' database, which means that it can probably be covered.
Does it take long?
The simple proposal form only
takes a matter of a minute or so for getting a quotation; and then
provided that you have the registration details of the car you want to
cover it is only another couple of minutes before you can pay for the
policy online and download your documents.
You have the choice of either
arranging cover to start at some time in the near future, or
immediately. This means that you can have your insurance arranged in
good time if you are going to need it soon, but in an emergency it
can be arranged extremely quickly.
Is it expensive?
Obviously on a
cost-per-day basis a full year's policy usually works out
cheaper but short term cover can still be surprisingly
economical and premiums are generally far lower than they were
before specialised companies came into the market. Plus: it only
takes a very short time to get a quote so why not see for
Is it safe?
All insurance companies
operating in the UK have to be authorised and regulated by the
Financial Conduct Authority which of course gives access to the

Scheme in the unlikely case of an insurer becoming
How are documents
You are sent a link to your
documents a moment or two after you have bought your policy. You can download
these and print them on your home printer if you wish, but this is not a
legal requirement. However, bearing in mind that the details of the
insurance cover will probably not be on the database, that police forces
check up on from time to time, for several days it is very advisable
that when you are buying any insurance, including short-term insurance,
you carry the cover note with you for the first few days just in case
you need to present it.
Car insurance for one day can be a very
useful product indeed, so you may wish to bookmark this site - you
never know when you may need it in the future!
