Why Use Short Term Car Insurance?

May 29, 2008
Finding cover for a short period of time can be a daunting task. Often someone that are looking to borrow a car from a friend are worried about doing so without arranging adequate insurance. Arranging insurance over a short period of time can be frustrating if you need to negotiate with your existing insurance provider and change a policy that you already have.

It is possible to arrange an independent short term cover deal for periods between a single day and 28 days. If you find yourself trying to add a new driver on a existing policy it can be very time consuming and as a result many independent providers have stepped in to help people in this predicament. Short term cover is often offered on the internet with policies that can be printed out immediately. This can be a great advantage for people that need coverage in a hurry and do not want to wait around for a policy document to be posted. Short term car insurance can provide the answer to many vehicle problems.

Short term car insurance can be a great benefit in a wide range of different scenarios. This type of arrangement can help if you are looking to borrow a vehicle in a wide range of different situations.

You may be looking to transport someone that is not well to and from hospital or to transport furniture to and from a house or even if you are moving home. It is also a great option for people that want to test drive a new vehicle before they buy. This means that even if you are selling a vehicle privately you can arrange an independent insurance deal that will protect your long term deal in the event of an accident by the person that is test driving the vehicle.

The short term deals can be sourced and arranged quickly on the internet so that you can have an arrangement in place in minutes. This can be a great way of ensuring peace of mind quickly once you have decided to lend your vehicle to your children or any relatives. After all it is vital that you have an arrangement in place as it is illegal to drive a car in the UK without insurance and most individual deals do not allow other people to drive the vehicle.

The length of deals available can differ greatly. They typically last between 1 day and 28 days with the longer period of time working out cheaper on average. In most cases these shorter term deals cost considerably more per day than a long term car insurance deal. But the benefits of this are that you are not tied into a long term deal and as a result it can offer real savings for people that use their vehicles sparingly.

The short deals are popular with students that use a vehicle when they return for the holiday periods. And also for people that want to borrow a van from a friend for a booze cruise. In business they are often utilised for situations when a vehicle needs to be borrowed for someone to attend a meeting somewhere that is a long distance from the place where the business is located. It is also a great option for people that want to borrow a vehicle to go on a holiday or a short break. There are thousands of different providers in the UK and a quick internet search for short term car insurance should put you in a position to find a reputable provider.
