We have made a few product announcements recently, from no longer needing an underlying policy for our temporary car insurance product to the launch of our new subscription product. It's been a busy few months! However, we're pleased to say that we have some more good news! We have made some big improvements to our temporary car insurance product.

Here's an update of all the improvements we've made live this week:

Lowered the age requirement

The minimum age limit has dropped from 21 years old to 19. The only requirement is that if you are under 21, you will need to of held your licence for at least one year with no at-fault claims.

Learner drivers

If you have a provisional licence and are between the ages of 17-45 then you can now get car insurance for learner drivers. Of course, you'll still need a full licence holder in the car with you.

Wait a second? That means that I can learn to drive at 17 with Cuvva and then I'm banned for two years until I get to 19?! Sadly, yes. 😢

Larger range of vehicles

You can now get insured on more awesome cars! The maximum vehicle value has increased from £35,000 to £40,000 and the maximum insurance group has increased to 50. Which means for some people, we will now be able to insure them on Tesla's! (finally!)

Hourly pricing has decreased

For some policies, the price has reduced by a significant amount.

Increase in policy length

You can now get even longer Cuvva policies. From 1 hour all the way up to 4 weeks days. Great if you are borrowing a car for a long stretch.

That's all of the updates for this week! If you have any questions or comments regarding any of these updates, let us know in our via the in-app chat.

Update: This post previously said that if you're under the age of 21 but bought an hourly policy whilst learning, the usual age restrictions wouldn't apply and you'd be able to get insured with Cuvva once you'd passed your test. Unfortunately, this was incorrect, so we've removed it from the post.
