Daily car insurance is often the cheapest way of getting cover when buying a car.

When you buy a car, especially from a car supermarket or at a car auction; you will need to prove you have car insurance in order to drive the car away. Short term car insurance is the perfect policy for this.

Car dealers and sellers like to do deals quickly; if you have the cash, high discounts can be achieved for swift ‘buy it now’ deals. Standing on the car dealer’s forecourt looking for the best value and affordable car insurance policy is not practical. If you take out a one day car insurance policy you can instantly drive away then sort out your 12 month car insurance policy from the comfort of your own home, giving you the time to search for the best deal and compare different insurance policies.

How does Daily Insurance Cover work?

One Day Car Insurance works by giving you, the driver, your very own car insurance policy (short term) on the named car. It runs entirely separately to any other insurance policy you have on your old car. This means that you can run the short term policy while you find an annual policy, or perhaps even while you sell your previous car.
