What our customers say


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.

Drive away insurance: the details

How drive away insurance works

Drive away insurance is a stand-alone, short-term car insurance policy that covers you to drive a new car home. It means you can keep yourself insured - which, legally, you have to be, all the time - without having to somehow figure out a full car insurance policy for a vehicle you've only just bought.

With Cuvva, you can get insured for just an hour. So why pay for what you don't need?

Age requirements

To use Cuvva, you have to be over 19 and under 65. And if you're under 21, you need to have held your licence for at least a year.

Sometimes, different vehicles will have different age restrictions. To double-check, try getting a quote in the app.

The excess

We figure out your excess using lots of different bits of information, like:

  • Your age. Younger drivers tend to have a higher excess than older, more experienced drivers.
  • The vehicle you're driving. Faster, more expensive cars tend to come with a higher excess.
  • Your location when you start the policy. If you're based in an area where there are lots of incidents, your excess will go up a little.

We don't offer voluntary excess, and you can't adjust the compulsory excess. But it's always shown clearly in the app before you buy a policy.
