How does Daily Insurance Cover work?

1 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 as a 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 car policy, not the existing owner’s policy, keeping the car owner no claims incident free.
