Is it possible to buy car insurance for a day? Absolutely. In fact you can now apply for cover for a car or light van for anything from 24 hours up to four weeks in daily increments, quickly and easily online, 24 hours a day and, of course, seven days a week. This flexibility is all part of the advantages the Internet has brought us, in contrast to the old days when buying a policy for anything less than a year was long winded, expensive and, frequently, simply impossible.

You start by applying for a quote, which anyone between the ages of 18 and 75 and holding a full UK or EU driving licence can do. The system looks at the vehicle you want to insure (which can belong to you or someone else, it doesn't matter which) plus your own details and driving record and if they match the required criteria (the vast majority do) You would be offered at least one quotation right away. If this was acceptable you could have a policy in force within minutes. Not only that but your policy documents would be accessible online so you could download them straight away and print them out on a local printer if you wished to.

This means that if you needed to borrow and drive someone else's vehicle, or drive one that you had just bought from a dealer, private seller or auction, then provided you had access to the Internet you could be covered within minutes for fully comprehensively or third party risks, and be able to drive the vehicle without fear of losing your licence for driving without insurance. You could even name a number of other drivers on the same policy if you wished to.

One day car insurance has made motoring much more flexible and less stressful for hundreds of thousands of UK motorists. Get a quote now.
