did I need five day's car insurance? Whilst I was
saving for some essential repairs I was without my
car. But, as a working mother it was essential I had
a vehicle. Just getting my little girl to and from
childcare and commuting to the office 5-days a week
was impossible without my own transport. Luckily a
good friend was going on holiday and offered to let
me borrow his car for the week.
Luckily I knew I was able to get cover online and
was really impressed by the options available to me.
I could choose temporary daily cover, weekly,
weekend or monthly cover and I could arrange it all
The first thing I did was check my suitability for
the insurance using the details on the website:
I am over 21-years old – check
I hold a full UK driving license – check
I live in a non-high risk postcode – check
I decided I would look at getting a quote for 5-days
as this would meet my family and commuting needs.
And so I went to the correct page on the website and
clicked on the button to get my quote.
Applying for temporary car insurance was so easy to
The form asked me for the registration number of the
car I wanted to insure and automatically listed the
make and model of the car for me to confirm. It then
asked some simple questions like my name, date of
birth, address and contact details including my
email address and mobile phone number. There was
also an option to select a 2nd driver to be included
on the policy.
After submitting these details the website generated
a range of quotes. The price for 1-day (with or
without breakdown), 5-days and 7-days were all shown
on the same page to enable me to make a clear
comparison between them and make the choice that was
best for me.
Step 1 of the purchase involved me selecting the
start date and time for the insurance and the number
of days I wanted the cover to last (anything from 1
to 28 days).
The expiry date was automatically shown based on the
details I had entered and it showed the total amount
that would need to be paid. Imagine how pleased I
was when I discovered that this price also included
breakdown cover and for an additional fee I would
have been able to include fully comprehensive
European cover too.
The final step before payment required me to confirm
the details that I had entered previously. It also
asked me to provide my driving licence number.
I was able to pay by debit card (other options were
available) and received my insurance certificate via
email really quickly after the payment was accepted.
There is no doubt in my mind that temporary car
insurance is a necessity for every driver at one
time or another and I really can’t express how
grateful I was to have the opportunity to purchase
exactly what I needed - car insurance cover for just
five days - and so easily.
