Temporary Car Insurance

Why to buy temporary car insurance:
  • You are watching someone else car while they are away on vacation.
  • You purchased a new car and haven’t sorted out insurance yet and wish to drive it home.
  • A friend or family member is temporarily driving your car
  • Vacation driving

If you are lending or borrowing cars from friends or renting cars, you may already know about temporary auto insurance plans. Short term policies are similar to standard car insurance policies that renew annually. Here is a list of short term car insurance features.

When your car gets damaged by a man-made incident or natural calamity, you will be covered for the repairs. This includes everything from an accident, vandalism, falling trees, or fire.

Theft includes if your car gets stolen while rented or borrowed.

Short term policies automatically usually provide you coverage while you are travelling abroad.

Temporary car insurance can be through a local insurance agent or online. You could also ask your car dealer if you are trying to drive a new car. Usually, they have automatic temporary day insurance once you purchase a car which you can choose to convert for a long term policy. The only drawback is that you will not have the power to choose the type of plan and the coverage you want, although this may still depend on the type of company you choose.
