Does someone need to borrow your vehicle?

If a friend or family member would like temporary car insurance to drive your vehicle, we’ll comprehensively insure them on a policy in their name. That way, your no claim discount will be protected.

Will you be borrowing someone else’s vehicle?

You can get a short-term insurance policy that won’t affect the vehicle owner’s annual insurance policy. Having a separate policy also makes things easy because:

  • Your name doesn’t need to be added to the vehicle owner’s annual insurance policy as a named driver.
  • You won’t need to change the vehicle on your annual insurance policy to the one you’ll be borrowing. (If you did have to, then your own vehicle would be uninsured and in breach of the new Continuous Insurance Enforcement laws.)

Do you need insurance for just one day?

We know that people sometimes need car insurance for a day. That’s why we’ve made it easy to get last minute cover when you need it. Lots of our customers get day insurance to:

  • Share the driving with a friend on a long journey
  • Borrow a friend or relative’s car for the day
  • Insure a friend or relative to borrow a vehicle rather than hiring one
  • Test drive a new vehicle
  • Cover someone to test drive a vehicle
