Why Tempcover?

Why Tempcover?

Reason no 1

We compare quotes from insurers

We’ve picked a panel of some of the best short term car insurers in the UK. We’ve chosen them carefully – not only on price but on the cover and service they offer. We regularly check their prices against the market to make sure they are competitive.

Reason no 2

We’ve insured over two million people

We have been helping people get temporary insurance for the past 10 years and with well over two million customers, we are the largest provider of temporary motor insurance in the UK.

Reason no 3

Online policy within 5 minutes

Save time and money! We compare prices so you don’t have to search the internet looking for the right deal. Just pick the best insurer quote and receive your policy in less than 5 minutes.

Reason no 4

Instant online cover

With our cover, you can get immediate temporary car insurance, anytime, anywhere. You can get a policy 24/7 online so anytime you need cover, it’s there ready to go. Cover lasts anywhere between 1 hour and 28 days (up to 90 days with our learner driver policy). Whatever the type of policy, you’ll receive your documents instantly so you can print your documents immediately from your computer.

Reason no 5

Protected no claims

Lending your vehicle to someone else or having guests use your house can mean you’re at risk of losing any no claims bonus if they have an accident while using your property. You can avoid this by taking out a temporary insurance policy with Tempcover. Your no claims will remain unaffected should anything happen to the policyholder while they’re in your car or home.

Reason no 6

Flexible, tailored packages

We offer ready-made bundles of packages to suit your needs and budget. Look out for our range of affordable extras such as breakdown cover and excess protection on most of our temporary motor insurance policies. Or if you prefer, you can just select the individual options you’d like to add to your policy, it’s up to you.
