5 Great Reasons to Use Temporary Car Insurance in 2021

Want more flexibility with your car insurance? Here are 5 great reasons to use temporary cover in 2021!

1. It could be better for the environment

By selling your car and choosing to only take out temporary insurance on friend or family member’s cars, you’ll be having a positive impact on the environment. Using your car less will reduce your carbon emissions, helping to slow global warming! However, if you want to leave your car off the road for any length of time without insuring it and without facing penalty fines or even prosecution, you need to make sure you take out a Statutory Off Road Notification (SORN).

2. Temporary insurance provides comprehensive cover

One all-important benefit of temporary insurance is that it provides comprehensive cover so if you were to have an accident, you’re covered. And, if you do end up having an accident in another driver’s car, their no-claims bonus won’t be affected. We even cover for theft or loss of keys, and windscreen damage too! Although your no claims bonus won’t be affected, your premiums could be impacted.

3. Do life on your own terms

Rather than having to rely on public transport (where you may struggle to socially distance), and be limited by the need to stick to a bus, train or tube timetable which aren’t always reliable, temporary insurance allows you to do life on your own terms.

Temporary car insurance is a flexible option to get you on the move right away. After all, buying a car isn’t always an option financially. And this is a great way of being able to take to the roads occasionally, just when you need to. Like when you want to head out on spontaneous, last-minute adventures with mates.

4. You can drive someone else’s car (or they can drive yours)

Speaking of last-minute adventures with mates, one great thing about temporary cover is that it allows you to drive someone else’s car (or lets them drive yours). So, if your motor isn’t quite right for that week-long road trip across the country and you want to borrow a mate’s 4×4, you can. Or if you want to help someone out on that long road trip, you can even share the driving between you.
