How does 1 – 28 Day Car Insurance Cover work?

1 – 28 Day Car Insurance works by giving you, the driver, your very own car insurance policy (short term) on the named car with the owner’s permission. As you’re not a named driver on the existing insurance policy, in the unfortunate situation that you need to make a claim, the claim will be on your short term policy, not the existing car owner’s policy, keeping the car owner no claims incident free.
