Daily car insurance is a great way to get insurance cover on a car for a short period of time. Whether that is your own vehicle you don’t use often, your partner’s car or a family member’s car. You may need one day car insurance so you can drive another’s car in a variety of circumstances such as moving house or on a road trip where there’s only one car but multiple drivers.
One day car insurance allows a car to be shared without the need for adding someone to an annual policy, which can be very costly. If you only need to borrow a car or share a car ride for a couple of days, daily insurance is the obvious answer. Plus, taking out a daily insurance policy means the car owners’ no claims discount will be protected in the case of an accident.
With GoShorty, you can get someone insured for as little as 1 hour with our hourly car insurance or up to a full 24 hours with our one day car insurance. This makes insurance incredibly affordable as you only pay for the time you need to be covered.
When you fill in our one day insurance quote form, you’ll be given the best quote available, and you’ll be insured to drive in a matter of minutes. Start saving money on your car insurance now.
The cost of a daily car insurance policy is specific to the person being insured. Insurers take into account certain criteria to devise the price they quote you for a policy. The cost of a daily policy varies from person to person depending on age, location, driving history and the car you are covering.
However it is certain that taking out daily insurance to use a car infrequently will save you plenty of money compared to using or being added to an annual policy. The average cost of daily car insurance for just one day is £20.44, though this will be different to what you specifically will be quoted after filling out the application form.
One day car insurance works by providing you with fully comprehensive cover for the 24 hour period you specify in the insurance application process.
The temporary policy is separate to whatever annual policy also runs on the vehicle you are insuring. This means using a daily policy if you are borrowing a car, protects the car owners no claims discount on their own insurance.
To take out a daily car insurance policy you will need to have permission from the car owner if you are borrowing a vehicle and to go through our quoting process. The quote form is quick and easy and can be completed with a quote returned to you in under two minutes.

Not sure whether daily insurance cover is right for you? You’ll find that daily insurance cover is perfect for anyone who just needs to be insured on a car for very short trips. Insurance for a day is ideal for:
Car Sharing: Especially if you’re going on a long journey and want to share the driving load with a friend or family member.
Learner Driver Practise: Getting in the extra hours outside a lesson without breaking the bank can be crucial to a speedy pass. You will require temporary learner insurance for this, not a regular car insurance policy – unless you are the one supervising the practice.
Test Driving Multiple Cars: When you’re buying a car second hand and having private test drives, it’s a great way to get behind the wheel without the risk of not being covered. Hourly car insurance could also be great for this.
Emergencies: Need to be somewhere quickly, but you’re not insured on someone’s car? Daily insurance could be just the ticket.
Borrowing a Car: Need to run one short errand? Daily insurance is ideal for short term use. Rather than adding someone to an annual policy (costly!!), add an additional driver by getting them a temporary policy and be on your way!
You’ll need a valid UK driving licence, the vehicle owner’s permission, and a few other things to qualify for daily insurance cover. We’ve broken it down here:
MID: Please note that all our Short Term Insurance policies are submitted to the Motor Insurance Database (MID) at midnight every day. We recommend always having a copy of your Insurance Certificate with you during the period of cover.

You cannot drive a car anywhere without insurance. If you need to drive a car to an MOT appointment that you don’t annually insure, taking out a temporary day insurance policy to get it there and back is a great solution. Driving to a booked MOT appointment with temporary insurance is possible. However, driving without a valid MOT may impact your temporary insurance cover so it is best to check the details of your chosen policy before driving without an MOT.
You can take out daily car insurance on cars up to a maximum value of £65,000. The car must not have undergone any modifications and not be used for commercial use. You can also get daily insurance for vans. Cars and vans are the two vehicle types we can offer daily insurance cover for.
