When should I take out temporary car insurance?

The very flexible nature of temporary car insurance – you can determine the policy length and the number of drivers – means that it can be used for a wide variety of situations. Reasons that you might want to take out a temporary insurance policy include:

  • If you are a parent and your children are home for a visit/the holidays
  • If you are taken unwell and are thus unable to drive yourself around
