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