When you buy your first temporary car insurance policy, we’ll ask you to take a picture of your vehicle. 🚗
You won’t have to do it every time you buy a policy.
Why we ask you to take a vehicle photo
We ask to see a photo of the vehicle so we can see what condition it’s in. That way, if you need to make a claim on your insurance, we can compare the condition of the vehicle at the time to the condition it’s in after the incident.
The photo has to be “live”
When you take your vehicle photo, it has to be “live”. That means it has to be taken at the time. You can’t upload an old photo of the vehicle.
That means, to buy a temporary car insurance policy, you’ll need to give the app access to your camera.
It also means you need to be with the vehicle when you buy the policy. There’s no way around this. If you can’t take a picture of the vehicle when we ask you to, you won’t be able to buy a policy.
How to take your vehicle photo
To take a photo of your vehicle, you need to:
1. Download Cuvva

Once you’ve signed up, you can type in your car’s registration number and get a quote.
3. Choose your policy
Choose from as little as one hour, all the way up to 28 days.
4. Take your photo
Now you’ll see a screen like this:
Tap the yellow banner at the top of the screen or the green button in the bottom-right corner to take the photo. That will take you to this screen:
The photo needs to show the whole front of the car, including the registration plate.
Once you’ve taken the picture, you’ll need to confirm that the photo is clear and includes the registration plate:
When you’ve done that, you’ll go back to the screen with the yellow banner. If the photo was successful, it’ll be replaced by a green banner:
And that’s it. You can then go ahead and buy your policy. 🚀
