Temporary Van Insurance

If you are driving van, even occasionally or for a short period, you will need appropriate Van Insurance. Even if you hold a UK Car Insurance policy, Vans are a different class of a vehicle, which means they require specific insurance. If you are a van owner, or regular driver, then you will want annual Van Insurance – but for short term van insurance, a more flexible Temporary Van Insurance policy will probably work better for you – and could well save you money.

How does Short-Term or Temporary Insurance work?

Temporary Insurance is a flexible way for drivers to be insured to drive vehicles for short periods of time. Temporary Car Insurance is also available, and offers many of the same advantages as a Short-Term Van Insurance policy.

With Temporary Van Insurance, you specify the length of time that you need to be covered to drive the vehicle. Unlike a standard annual policy, you can be covered for as little as 1 hour with some providers and our partners, tempcover, will cover you from 1 hour to 28 days.*

Short-term or Temporary Insurance is a separate insurance policy to the one held by the vehicle’s owner. This means that, for example, if you are borrowing a van and something does happen that means you need to make an insurance claim, the owner’s policy and their No Claims Discount will not be affected.

As with all vehicle insurance, you will find different levels of cover – Third Party, Third Party Fire and Theft, and Comprehensive. Comprehensive cover comes as standard with leading providers and makes sense – especially if you are borrowing a vehicle that you couldn’t afford to replace.

When to choose Temporary Van Insurance?

We don’t all need to drive a van all the time, but there is no doubt that, now and then, a van is just what you need to get things moving. Often, situations come along where a van will make life easier and being able to get instant insurance cover for flexible periods of time only helps get the job done.

  • Moving House – If you can borrow a van, and are happy for a bit of heavy lifting, this can be a much cheaper way to move you things
  • Transporting Something Big – Whether you have just bought a sofa or need to take some old furniture to a mate, borrow a van and get insurance to cover you for a few hours or a few days.
  • Test Drives – If you are looking at buying a van from a private seller, you are going to want to give it a test drive. Whereas a dealership will be able to insure you, a private seller wont. So get instant cover for an hour and take to the road.
