Is weekly insurance for me?

Insurance is available to  learner drivers from 17-45 and full licence holders from 19-65, although those under 21 must have held their licence for a year (full policy rules). The vehicle doesn’t need to have an existing insurance policy to be able to use Cuvva. A weekly policy would provide you with full coverage, as well as flexibility on a chosen vehicle.

Why buy weekly car insurance?

Given the legal requirements of Continuous Insurance Enforcement rules, a weekly Cuvva policy can provide cover for that awkward period of time between your annual policy ending and selling your car, or immediately after purchasing a car. A week’s worth of cover may not make sense if you’re not going to drive every day but if the car doesn’t have another policy, a week’s cover will provide you with a valid policy for the whole time the car is in your possession. Alternatively, you would need a Statutory Off Road Notice from the DVLA. The best way to calculate the best option is to look at the cost of an hour and then work out how many times you’re going to drive – this can then be compared to the cost of a week’s cover. The only quirk you may want to consider is that our underwriter increases the premiums during risky periods (rush hour and weekend evenings) – this can increase the cost of policies purchased at these times by up to 20%.

Buying / Selling your car 

If you are selling your car, getting a week’s cover to tide you over can be cheaper. Renewing an annual insurance policy may have cancellation fees that are more than the cost of a short-term policy!


Just need to borrow a car to pop to the shops? An hour could be perfect.


Making a few journeys? Probably best to have cover for the day.


Need the flexibility to hop in the car throughout the week?


Borrowing a car for a longer period of time? Our 28 day policies could be perfect.

Weekly car insurance

Buying a week-long policy could be the cheapest option if you’re planning to drive a lot. If you only plan to borrow a car for a couple days or a few hours each day, you might want to look into buying a policy with a shorter duration.

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).

What our customers love


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.
