TGIF! Escape the rat race with weekend car insurance

Here’s how weekend car insurance works:

Step one
Talk your best mate into lending you their car. Reassure them that their no claims bonus is safe because you’re getting your own car insurance for the weekend 🙏.
Step two
Download the Cuvva app and enter the car’s registration plate. It only takes a few minutes to sort everything and cover starts instantly. It’s the ultimate in spontaneous weekend-ing.
Step three
Hit the road and let the weekend antics begin. If Monday looms way too quickly (usually does), easily extend your policy on the Cuvva app so the good times can continue.

How much does a weekend’s insurance cost?

It varies by driver and car, but to give you an idea: the average 20-24 year old driving a Citroen C1 pays £36.10 for 3 days of car insurance with Cuvva (Based on Cuvva’s average price as of August 2022).

The expert's view

Adam Kent, Cuvva's Senior Underwriting Lead and Insurance Expert, said: ‘Weekend car insurance can be great for a UK getaway or road trip - but getting into an accident can be particularly stressful when you’re away from home. If the worst happens, take photos of the damage to your car or to any other cars, record the names and contact details of anyone involved (plus any witnesses) and take note of exactly where you are. If police are called, get the names and numbers of any officers at the scene, as well as the incident reference number. Call your insurer as soon as it’s safe to do so - they will be able to support you and move the vehicle to a safe place.’
