Short Term Insurance Cover

There are times when you need to have a car for a short period of time, for example, students coming home from university for the holidays, borrowing a car from a friend or maybe overseas visitors. These are just a few of the times when a short-term policy may be of better use to somebody.

Recently, some car insurance providers have made short-term policies available and they are a good idea for somebody who is going to be driving a car on a temporary basis. The main plus point of these policies is; if a driver was added on to somebody's policy and they had an accident the policy holder would lose their no-claims discount. So this way it is piece of mind for the vehicle owner and the driver.

To find cheap car insurance in the past has been hard but with so many various policies out there, it is becoming easier. These kind of policies would also be extremely useful if you are; test-driving a car or maybe borrowing a friends van if you are moving house, short term policies can be the answer for people looking to avoid placing themselves on somebody else's policy.

With new measures set out by the police in conjunction with the insurers, there really is no hiding place from insuring your car. This is one of the reasons why the insurance companies have made these short-term policies available.
