Temporary car insurance exclusively for students living away from home, sharing a friend’s or family member’s car in an affordable way!
If you’re a university or boarding school student aged between 18-27, it may cheaper to be insured on a parent’s car rather than buying and insuring your own. Our temporary insurance is a handy solution for students looking to get behind the wheel and save money.
Weekly student car insurance is a handy short-term insurance option. Choose from one to six weeks cover at a time and get insured on a parent’s or friend’s car for the holidays!
Only pay for the miles you’re driving
The price you pay for short term car insurance will vary based on a number of factors, such as your postcode, the car you are driving, your occupation and your driving history. The best way to find out how much it would cost you is to get a quote – it only takes a few minutes and, if the price is right, you could be covered straight away with our student car insurance.
If you’re looking for more flexibility to use the same car as and when you need to, Pay As You Go Insurance is a flexible alternative, where you pay for the miles you drive, rather than set a fixed term. You can top up as and when you need to, and when you no longer need cover, you’ll receive a refund for any unused miles since your last top-up. As with any insurance cover, you would need to get a quote for a personalised price.
If you want temporary car insurance for 17 year olds on a car you plan to use every now and then (rather than just the once), our Pay As You Go policy allows you to pay just for the miles you drive.
If you’re learning to drive and would rather have monthly insurance to cover you until you pass your test, our a href="https://www.wearemarmalade.co.uk/learner-driver-insurance">learner driver insurance might be a better option for you - with cover available from thirty days to eight months. For drivers aged 18 or over, with a full licence, student driver is a weekly car insurance policy for 18 to 27 year olds.
Temporary insurance on a car you borrow can help you get out on the road as and when you need to. If you're only going to be driving little and often, temporary insurance can be a cheaper way to get cover, as the up-front cost is likely to be less than paying up front for an annual young driver insurance policy.
Just because you’re getting cover for less than a year, it doesn’t mean you’re getting less cover. All Marmalade policies are comprehensive, meaning that if something were to happen to the car while you are driving, any damage is covered.
It’s a win/win for parents, as you don’t need to worry about having to run a taxi service. Simply hand over the keys, and with no risk to your own no claims discount, you can put your feet up and relax.
With pay as you go insurance you can get the best of both annual and temporary insurance cover. You get the flexibility of temporary insurance, but, if it runs for a year and you don’t make a claim you earn no claims discount, the same as you get from an annual policy.
