Can I buy one month van insurance?

Yes, with a temporary insurance policy you’re able to get one month van insurance quickly and easily.

While it shouldn’t be an alternative to annual insurance, there are many everyday situations that may require you to borrow or drive a van temporarily.

If you’re one of the many drivers who want to use a van temporarily then a one month policy could be the ideal way to save time and money on insurance.

Buying one month van insurance is a cost-effective way to get cover for the duration you want without having to worry about adjusting existing policies (if you’re borrowing a van) or paying for a whole years’ worth of cover if you’re only using the van for short period of time.

Not only can you buy a monthly policy but with temporary insurance, you can get insurance for a duration that suits you.

A whole month is a long time and you might find that it’s longer than you need cover for. If that’s the case then don’t worry because while you can get a one month policy, you can also find shorter durations to fit your specific needs.

From just one day, up to one month, you can find a policy that suits you and means you don’t have to pay for cover you don’t need.

How can I buy temporary van insurance?

Buying temporary van insurance has never been easier or quicker. You can buy a policy online at any time, 24/7 and it takes just a few minutes.

You can also find out more information on temporary van insurance by checking out our range of handy guides.

When you buy a policy, you’ll need to answer a few basic questions about you and the van you want to drive.

You’ll need to enter your name, date of birth, occupation, address, and driving history to give the insurer an idea the type of driver you are and where you’ll be using the vehicle.

If you’re borrowing a van or using a vehicle you’re not familiar with be sure that you know the body type of the van and it’s UK registration number before getting a quote because you won’t be able to get one without it.

If you want to add an additional driver to the policy, you’ll need to know their details before you start your quote.

Once you’ve entered your information and selected the duration and start time you want, you’ll be presented with a range of quotes to compare.

From there you simply select the policy that suits you, add any additional extras, like gadget cover or UK breakdown and misfuelling cover to the policy and enter your payment details.

The whole process is simple and straightforward and takes around 5 minutes.

What am I covered to do?

One month van insurance is ideal for a range of jobs and situations, so whether you’re driving a van for work or borrowing one while yours is in for repairs, temporary cover will insure you to do pretty much everything.

Everyday journeys like going to the shops or driving your kids to school are known in the insurance world as social, domestic and pleasure use. These are considered standard journeys and are covered by all insurers.

Most insurers we work with will also cover you for journeys relating to your trade or business. This can include commuting, transporting large items for your work or generally getting around while on the clock.

That being said, because we work with a panel of insurers who each have their own acceptance criteria, there are some things you won’t be insured to do with a temporary van insurance policy.

You won’t be able to use the van to transport people or goods for hire or reward which generally refers to taxi’s, couriers, hauliers, or furniture removers. Your insurance policy won’t be valid if you are moving people or goods for a fee.

You will also not be able to transport hazardous materials or drive in what the insurer describes as hazardous locations.

If you are unsure about any of the restrictions be sure to check your insurance policy wording document which you’ll receive once you’ve purchased the policy.
