Top 10 Reasons To Use Temporary Insurance

Whether driving cars or vans, or even just learning to drive for the first time, There will be times where temporary insurance could be perfect for what you need.

Here’s our top 10 reasons to take out short term insurance from just 1 hour up to 28 days


Borrowing a car: If you only need a vehicle for a short period, such as a weekend trip or a one-time event, temporary insurance allows you to cover the specific duration you require


Buying a new car: Drive it home with GoShorty with insurance from an hour upwards, leaving you time to sort your annual policy out once you’re home in your new wheels.


Moving house: When borrowing a friend’s or family member’s car/van for a house move, temporary insurance ensures you have correct cover during your use.


Test drives: If you’re considering purchasing a new car and want to take it for a test drive, temporary insurance can provide cover for the duration of the test period.


Additional drivers: When you have occasional guest drivers, like friends or family members, temporary insurance allows you to extend coverage to them without affecting your regular policy or no claims discount.


Road trips with friends: If you’re visiting a new location and plan to use a friend’s or family member’s car temporarily, a short-term insurance policy can provide coverage during your stay.


Emergency situations: In cases where you need to drive a vehicle in an emergency and you’re not covered by your regular insurance, a temporary policy can offer immediate cover.


Avoiding lapses in cover: If you’re between standard insurance policies and want to ensure continuous coverage, temporary insurance can bridge the gap and protect you during the interim period.


Car broken down or in for repairs: Use a short term policy to borrow someone else’s car whilst yours is getting fixed, with prices from as little as £20 as day.


Learning to drive: take out insurance for just the time you are practicing in your car or someone else’s car, or even for your driving test too.
