Why you’d need one day car insurance

Why pay for insurance you don’t need? For those odd days when you need to borrow a car, use Cuvva. Our one day car insurance is a fast, flexible way to get covered for all those one-offs – when you need car insurance for a day, but you don’t want to go through the hassle of getting added as a named driver.

Signing up takes minutes. Buying a policy takes seconds.

Our one day car insurance policies are fully comprehensive, so you’re in safe hands. And it’s completely separate from the owner’s car insurance policy. So if you do need to make a claim, their no-claims bonus won’t be affected.

Moving house

It’s not uncommon to borrow a friend’s car when you’re moving house. It is, however, very difficult to predict how many trips back and forth this will require – it normally takes far longer than expected! A daily policy means your don’t have to remember to buy a policy every time you get back in the car. If you’re doing serveral journeys, it’ll likely be cheaper too!

Running Errands

There are some errands which become significantly easier with the use of a car. From doing a big supermarket shop, to picking up heavy or over-sized furniture, to visiting a relative who’s practically inaccessible by public transport, it’s very easy to come up with a long list! By buying one day car insurance, you can do things at leisure, with fully comprehensive insurance cover throughout.

Going on holiday in the UK

If you’re going on holiday in the UK and driving, getting a daily policy from Cuvva can be a cheap way to do this. However, if you’re driving to Europe, we would recommend you do not use Cuvva as we only offer the most basic of 3rd party cover whilst you are abroad and you will not be able to buy any further policies once you leave the UK. If you need European cover, you should be able to find other specialist brokers who will be able to offer more suitable products.

Buying a new car

If you’re buying a car and want to drive it away, you’ll need to have insurance. So, getting Cuvva setup on your phone in advance will allow you to quickly buy cover and drive away. You can then sort out your annual insurance once you’re home.

One day car insurance

If you plan to use a car on and off throughout the day, buying a daily policy will give you the most flexibility, with less time constraints than hourly policies.  A couple of hourly policies may well work out cheaper than a daily policy if you have a clear idea of journey times.

Who we cover

Insurance is available to learner drivers between 17-45 and full licence holders between 19-65 (although if you’re aged between 19 and 21, you must have held your licence for at least a year and have no at-fault claims).  It is available on vehicles with and without another insurance policy on the car (full policy rules).

Only pay for what you need

To get the most value out of your car insurance, make sure you’re only paying for the time you need to drive. It’s unlikely you’ll be driving for more than a few hours in a day. If this is true for you, it might be worth buying an hourly car insurance policy. If you’re only going to be driving a car for a couple of hours, it could help you save money. 

What our customers love

Luke

What a fantastic app and company to use. Cuvva have made something that used to use up a fair amount of time and effort into something so simple! Once set up on the app it actually takes 30 seconds to be insured!

Easy to use and gives peace of mind. My husband could borrow my friend’s car for a couple of hours work – no hassle whatsoever.

The whole concept behind Cuvva changes the rules on car insurance and creates a genuinely useful and innovative way to think about driving. I would recommend the app without any hesitation.
