Short Term Car Insurance

Secure a short term car insurance deal today

Not everyone requires a car insurance policy which lasts for a standard 12 months. What would happen if you are forced to temporarily borrow a friend's car while your own is being repaired in a garage for instance?

You can get insurance from these companies through MoneySuperMarket, but this doesn’t include every single insurer on the market.

How our site works

Some drivers may need more flexibility than others. In which case, MoneySuperMarket has provided a list below of some short term car insurance providers.

We want to show you as many insurers as possible, so that you can choose what suits you best.  But, we can’t promise to show you every single insurer, because some insurers don’t want to be included on comparison websites.

We think a good short term car insurance policy should cover you straight away. We also think a good insurer should cover you if you've got penalty points, and you should be able to add drivers to your policy.  We prioritise the companies that include these things in their standard policy, so they appear higher in our list.  The insurers who only offer some of these things in their standard policy appear lower down in the list.

This policy generally meets the needs of someone wishing to insure their car temporarily
