How does Daily Insurance Cover work?

Short Term 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.
