These are the perfect solution to get motoring. Often, short stay drivers in the UK are looking to drive vehicles which don't belong to them. A good example of this would be someone in the UK, visiting relatives or friends, and hoping to use their vehicle to get around. It's fine to do this, but the problem comes when trying to get insurance. There are very few UK insurers who will be happy to add an International, non-resident driver onto a domestic policy. Those who are prepared to do so normally make it an uneconomical option. A short term insurance policy offers the following benefits:
Get a quote in under a minute
Cover available instantly - downloadable documents
Comprehensive UK cover available
Third Party EU cover included
Drivers aged 18 - 75 are welcome to apply
The vast majority of popular cars are covered
Immediate cover available in an emergency
Take over driving at short notice
Buy online instantly - no need for long phone calls
So, these policies cover most eventualities, are available very quickly indeed, and are designed to get you on the road with the minimum of time and fuss.
One major benefit is that driver's choosing these policies only pay for the time they want to drive. Policies are available from 1 to 28 days, so if it is planned to only drive for 1 or 2 days, then that's all you pay for. The policies are very cost-effective, especially compared with other options.
