The People Behind Short Term Insurance

Car insurance has never been a flexible industry, and as drivers, we were frustrated at the lack of options when needing to borrow a car – so we decided to change things.

We created a new way of doing things to help drivers get simple, straightforward short term insurance in an instant.

When you might need us

In those everyday moments when all you need is a few hours or days insurance – Need to borrow a car or van for a day or two? Want to test drive a new vehicle before buying? Learning to drive and want some extra practice? At these times and so many more, Tempcover is here to help.

Just enter a few details about the driver and vehicle

Tempcover was built on the idea that insurance could be different and could fit around you and your needs.

We try to remove the frustration of traditional insurance and develop quicker, easier and more innovative ways to get you covered and back on the road.

Affordable cover, unbelievably fast

Our story

In 2006, Tempcover CEO Alan Inskip had a lightbulb moment – an insurance provider that can offer truly flexible cover for the time drivers actually need. No long term commitment, no auto-renewals, just the cover they want for the amount of time they need. The next day, Tempcover was born.
