insurance for 1 day? Standard van cover in the U.K. makes it
difficult to loan out vehicles to friends and family members, or to
borrow one when you need it. In the event of an accident, if the
present driver isnít listed on the insurance, then the vehicle will
not be covered. The person driving can lose their licence, as well.
Itís absolutely insane. You canít borrow cars or loan out cars
without exposing everyone to an unacceptable level of risk. Visiting
family members are out of luck. You canít help out your friend whose
banger is in the repair shop. Perhaps worst of all, your uncle, the
white van man, canít loan you his very useful motor vehicle for
picking up the fridge that youíve acquired through Ebay.
You can buy a temporary insurance policy online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. It will only take you a few minutes to apply, and you'll be emailed the confirmation as soon as youíre done. The policy can last for as little as one day, or up to 28 days. Drivers from 18 years old to 75 are eligible to apply, and so are drivers with E.U. licences. Some of the policies will even provide travel in Eorope and roadside assistance in the event of a breakdown , and more than one driver can be covered by the policy. The van must be borrowed, not hired, and it must not be more than 3.5 tonnes in weight. The driver or drivers on the policy need not have perfect driving records - but it helps, as with all insurance policies.
