How does Daily Insurance Cover work?

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