How it works

Do you need a van for a holiday, to help you move to a new place, or for some other temporary reason? If you are considering borrowing someone else’s van for a short period, consider what would happen if you were to get into an accident. Would your regular vehicle insurance cover you? Even if you are covered you risk losing your no-claims bonus. If you only need to drive a van for a limited period of time, then there is no need to have a permanent van insurance policy if you need a van for just 1 week, 2 or 3 weeks, or a month, 2 months, 3 months, 6 months or even more.

By purchasing a short term or temporary van insurance policy, you can use this cover without making any claims on your main vehicle insurance. You can pay for temporary van insurance for a specific term usually between 1 and 28 days, or you can pay as you go, with cover from one month to eight months and you can have the choice of third party or comprehensive insurance too.

Short term and temporary van insurance can apply to any van that the policy owner drives. The cover can also extend to other drivers of the van so long as the driver has a valid driving licence. The policy can also cover your own van that you temporarily lend to somebody else.

While it is possible to make changes to your regular vehicle insurance policy to provide for temporary van cover, this can often be a long and painstaking process. Short term and temporary van insurance companies specialise in providing a quick and no hassle solution.
