Can you buy car insurance for one day?
What is this one day car insurance I keep hearing about?
One day car insurance policy is exactly what you expect it to be: policy that involves covering a vehicle for a single day without necessarily breaking the bank. While annual insurance policies are the most popular types of policy, there are many reasons why you might need a one-day car insurance quote. Take, for instance, your car breaks down, and you need to borrow a friend’s car while your car is in the garage or you are looking to invest in a new vehicle, and want to take your potential new vehicle for a test drive. You’ll need a short term cover possibly a one-day insurance policy to do so.
One day car insurance policy
is easy to acquire and can be quickly arranged to start from the
moment you bought it. You’ll need a few key bits of information at
hand and certain requirements you should have met to speed up the
process they include:
Of course, there is always
another option to add a friend or a family member to your existing
car insurance policy if necessary. However, this might not be the
cheapest way to arrange the cover you need and could put at risk
your no-claims bonus if whoever borrows your car has an accident
driving it. Moreover, if something happened to your vehicle while
someone else was driving it and you needed to make a claim that
would probably mean an increase in the following year’s premium
whereas claiming on a separate day insurance policy wouldn’t affect
your personal car cover in such a way.
Always drink in moderation.
