What is temporary van insurance and why might I need it?

Temporary cover is a short term, comprehensive insurance policy to protect you and your van for between 1 and 28 days.
  • Unlike a conventional 12 month policy, short term and temporary van insurance policies allow you to get comprehensive cover to drive a van, just for the period you need
  • If driving a van is something you do rarely, it’s a great way to get comprehensive insurance protection at a price relative to the amount you are driving

There are times when you may want to consider taking out a temporary van insurance policy:

  • For employees - if driving a van for work related purposes is a rare occurrence, a temporary van insurance policy can be a quick way to get covered when you need it most, often for much less than the cost of a full 12 month policy
  • When moving - moving into a new home, or even just doing some serious spring cleaning, can take a long time if you have a lot of items to transport. A van can speed this up, but you’ll need insurance in order to drive on UK roads
  • When working - if a van is your backup vehicle, to be used when the need arises, a short-term van insurance policy could offer the right protection, just when you need it
