Buying short term car insurance - it's fast and simple

Visiting my parents in the north of England by train rather than driving due to the long distance, I needed to find a way of insuring my father's car to be able to get out and about to visit old friends and other family members. I would only be staying with them for six days, but obviously wanted to be driving the car legally.

In the past, obtaining car insurance for a very short period of time was difficult and often really expensive. My experience had been that it was through long and complicated telephone calls and often resulting in not being helped because so few companies offered the facility.

I'd heard though that it was now available online, so after arriving, I had a look and was really pleased to find out that not only was it possible to get insurance for a few days, it was a really simple process.

I got an instant quote within a couple of minutes for the car - a Honda Civic - and was able to start driving immediately.

If needed, I would have been able to insure myself for anything from 1-28 days and I even found out that I could insure someone else on my own car if needed in the future.

I had a general look at the different possibilities for temporary insurance and it is now a really flexible way of driving a car. Quotes are provided for just about any situation and I thought I would definitely remember to tell my friends who have children away at university and need to borrow their car whilst back at home.

Although I needed the car for social events, it was useful to know that if I ever needed temporary insurance for another car to get me to work and back, this was also something covered.

Making payment was straight forward - I used my credit card so I knew I was instantly covered.

I took the insurance cover out when I arrived at my parents house. I hadn't realised that I could have arranged the cover anything up to 30 days in advance. This is a real plus for anyone who wants to feel very organised and as I'm that kind of person, I will definitely be doing this next time I visit them.

Being able to get temporary car insurance now online is a huge leap forward in insurance products and one which will help so many people in so many different situations. I will definitely look to doing this again in the future, as I think it's much better than hiring a car and far easier.
