Two day car insurance to suit your weekend plans

If you’re planning a weekend away or just need to borrow a car for one or two days at the end of the week, weekend car insurance could be the best way to ensure you’re properly covered.

Only paying for the couple of days insurance you actually need means you’re not forking out for expensive and unnecessary yearly cover.

It also stops you having to spend time and money adjusting any existing policies.

Weekends are great opportunity to run errands or spend time with the family and if you’re using a car you’re not already insured to drive, you’ll want cover that’s fast and flexible to suit whatever you’ve got planned.

Tempcover provide quotes for short term car cover for the duration you want (from 1 hour up to 28 days) and allows you to pick when you want the policy to begin, down to the minute.

A 2 day car insurance policy will give you complete peace of mind when driving a car that’s not your own as well as saving you time and money.

When do I need weekend car insurance?

Borrowing a friend’s car for a weekend

Using a friend’s car is a much cheaper alternative to hiring, but borrowing from a friend or family member does mean you are responsible for arranging your own insurance.

With a temporary policy, you can get cover for the weekend without their annual insurance being affected. This could not only save them time but also a lot of money.

A weekend car insurance policy is a separate, standalone policy that has no impact on any existing cover. This also means that any No Claims Discount they have earned will also be protected while you’re using the vehicle.

Naturally, when driving a friend’s car, you’ll want to make sure nothing happens to it. While driving carefully should prevent any accidents, you can never predict what other road users may do.

If the worst should happen, an annual insurance policy that lets you drive other cars is unlikely to give you the comprehensive protection that comes with 2 day car insurance cover.

Having weekend car insurance gives you complete peace of mind while using your friend’s vehicle. You won’t have to worry about falling out with your friend if something goes wrong, because everyone is protected.

Having a weekend away

The weekend is all about getting away from it all and hitting the open road. A 2 day car insurance policy is ideal if you’re going for a short break away and want to share the driving with a friend or family member.

Whether you’re driving a friend’s car, or a friend is driving yours, getting weekend car insurance is the best way to take the stress out of driving.

When you know you’re covered, you can focus on the fun stuff!

Getting car repairs on the weekend

Getting your car fixed is a chore no one enjoys doing, especially if it ends up taking longer than you expect.

If you find yourself without a car because it’s being repaired, a great way to stay on the road is to get 2 day car insurance, so you can drive your partner’s or family member’s car while you wait.

You can arrange weekend car insurance any time of day. It’s quick and easy to get, and you can even pick when you want your cover to begin, down to the minute. This means that even while your cars in the shop, you can carry on as normal.

Driving away a new car

One of the best things a driver can do at the weekend is pick up a new car. You’ll want to get straight on the road and try out your new motor, but if the car isn’t properly insured, you shouldn’t be driving anywhere.

If you’re waiting for an annual policy to start or just want to take your time selecting the right cover for you, why not get 2 day car insurance so you can enjoy your new car straight away – or get it home at least? The weekend car insurance policies available from our panel of insurers can act as your handy drive away insurance.

With the security of knowing you’re covered while your annual insurance is being sorted, you can spend the weekend driving around care free!

How to extend your 48 hour car insurance

Unfortunately, the weekends don’t last longer, but you can get cover that does.

You can get up to 28 days cover with a temporary car insurance policy, and no matter how long you need it for, you get the same comprehensive protection.

Can I insure my car for more or less than a weekend?

Yes. For when you only need to pop from A to B and back, many insurers provide temporary one day car insurance. If even that sounds like more than you need, there’s hourly car insurance to consider too.

The maximum our panel of insurers can arrange in a single, temporary agreement is 28 days cover. So you’d need to take out two month long agreements, one after the other.
