Short Term Van Insurance Features

Whether you’re moving house, picking up a large piece of furniture or working for a business using a friend’s van, taking out your own short term insurance policy is often the cheapest way. Taking out temporary insurance means you are legally insured by your own insurance policy to drive the vehicle at a cost which is usually less than hiring your own van. Temporary van insurance is available for 1-28 days, so whether you need weekly cover or a daily policy, it’s often the cheapest way to drive a van.
If you’ve just bought yourself a new van our temporary insurance policies have you covered for driving your new van home or testing driving a potential new vehicle.

How does Daily Insurance Cover work?

Short Term Van Insurance works by giving you, the driver, your very own insurance policy (short term) on the named van with the owner’s permission. As you’re not 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 policy, not the existing owner’s policy, keeping the van owner’s no claims incident free.
