Weekends are usually time to get some jobs done. Moving some bits from house to house, planning a weekend trip away from home, or even giving someone a lift. Our short-term car insurance is perfect for ensuring you have the correct cover.
Car insurance comes at a hefty price, so how can you save yourself the costs (and the time) if you only want weekend car insurance? Luckily, GoShorty has you covered with a variety of temporary insurance options.
Temporary car insurance is an efficient and affordable way to get cover so that you can drive another person’s car much more flexibly. By taking out short-term car insurance for the weekend, you can protect the vehicle’s owner’s no claims discount and preserve your other insurance policies.
You can get insurance cover for as little as one hour, a couple of days, up to an entire month. Temporary car insurance allows you to only pay for the cover you need. Most policies under temporary car insurance include a fully comprehensive cover.
Once you have permission from the vehicle owner you want to use, you can easily and quickly apply for and arrange a policy. It can also start immediately once you’ve bought it.
Short-term car insurance works the same as any other policy, and you will have the same level of coverage for a shorter period. A temporary insurance policy is separate from your standard or an annual insurance policy, which will not affect your no-claims discount and bonus.
What you get:
You can get temporary cover for a few hours or weeks; the choice is all yours. This coverage is more affordable and efficient than an annual car insurance policy.
You will be covered for repairs, fire damage, medical expenses, damage, theft, and damages done to another person, their property, or their car.
You can take out a policy easily and quickly without needing to answer lengthy questions or go through a long process like you would for standard insurance. Temporary car insurance cost is lower and comes into effect immediately.
If you have a second car that only comes out of the garage on special occasions, getting a three-day insurance policy whenever you feel like taking it for a spin is a great idea.
Not everyone is eligible for temporary cover. Drivers must meet specific requirements depending on whether you’re driving your car or a family member’s car. Let’s take a look:
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.
