Two Week Car Insurance Frequently Asked Questions

When is temporary insurance not suitable?

Temporary insurance is always the best option. If you’re planning to drive long term, you could find that annual cover is more affordable option.

We’d also recommend looking for alternative insurance if you’re planning to use a hire or rented vehicle or use your vehicle as a taxi or delivery driver as we are unable to provide insurance for these purposes.

There are certain drivers that are unlikely to find temporary car insurance. These include drivers who have:

  • Had their full UK licence less than 6 months
  • Have over 7 driving licence penalty points in the last 3 years
  • Have been disqualified from driving in the past 2 years
  • Have pending criminal convictions

We are also unable to provide cover for drivers looking to insure cars worth less than £1,500 or more than £65,000.
