Want to rent out your car?

• Let friends or family members borrow your car

• They’ll get their own insurance policy, so your no claims discount won’t be affected if they need to make a claim

How long can I borrow a car for?
Once you've found someone who is happy to lend you their car, you can use Cuvva to buy a standalone policy to drive it for as little as 1 hour, to as long as 28 days (although there are sometimes limits depending on the specific car or driver).
