What are the uses of two-week car insurance?

Two-week car insurance policies are ideal for a wide range of situations such as:


Car sharing

Whether you’re taking a road trip with a friend and want to share the driving responsibilities, or borrowing someone’s car for an extended break, a 2-week insurance policy is perfect for ensuring you have just the right amount of cover you need.

Moving house

Moving house can be a lengthy process, sometimes needing a number of trips back and forth together with visits to public recycling facilities. Take the pressure off you and your family by getting a 2-week insurance policy that will let you go at your own pace and move all of your belongings stress-free.

Helping friends and family

Sometimes a vehicle’s owner will be unable to drive for whatever reason – maybe they’re unwell or injured. In these situations, getting a 2-week insurance policy will allow you to step in and help out by driving their car for them, letting them get back on their way in an instant.


Sometimes the unexpected happens, and we need to step into the driver’s seat of a vehicle. A 2-week car insurance policy is perfect for situations such as this, giving you the cover you need for the time it takes to get everything sorted.

How much is two-week car insurance?

As with all types of insurance, the cost of the premium will depend on a number of different factors. The main things that influence the price of a short term car insurance policy are:

  • Your age – younger drivers tend to be considered higher risk by insurance providers meaning the cost of a short term insurance policy will be higher.
  • How long you’ve held your licence – drivers who’ve only passed their test recently are likely to need to pay more for insurance as they’re less experienced.
  • The vehicle you want to drive – cars with bigger engines and higher market values are more expensive to insure.
  • The length of the policy – the longer you need your policy to last, the more expensive it will be. Temporary car insurance is still a much more cost-effective way of getting cover, though, if you don’t need to drive a vehicle year-round.

Other factors that are likely to influence the cost of your insurance quotes are added extras, whether you choose to protect your no claims discount and your driving history.
