Monthly Car Insurance for Students

When you absolutely need to get hold of a car, borrowing one from your friend or family seems like the easiest option, especially if you can’t afford your own. Once you’ve convinced them to let you behind the wheel, it's important to sort out your insurance.
Your first port of call may be to get added onto the car owner's policy - but wait, there’s an easier (and often, cheaper) option! If you're only planning on using the car for a short period of time, being added as a named driver onto an existing policy can mean you'll be wasting a lot of cash - luckily, we've got a cheaper alternative!

At Marmalade we have a few different insurance options convenient for students!

If you’re looking for flexible cover to get you behind the wheel of a parent’s car when you’re home for the holidays throughout the year - check out our Pay as You Go Insurance. Simply put - it does what it says on the tin, you may for the miles you use and can keep the policy active for a whole year, so you know you’re covered every time you need to drive mum or dad’s car.

If you’re looking for insurance cover for a week or two at a time (up to 28 days) then our weekly student car insurance is for you. It’s a short-term policy that’ll cover you for a few weeks at a time to drive a parent’s or friend’s car.

Monthly student insurance - how does it help?

If like many students, you’re on a tight budget, owning a car is often out of the question. Nonetheless, there are times where a car comes in handy which is why short-term insurance is useful in the holidays. It’s cheaper and more convenient than the alternative yet still gives you the same cover as normal, fully comprehensive policy - it’s just used on a parent’s car instead!
Many parent’s also favour temporary cover as an alternative to adding their son or daughter onto their own policies. It can often be much cheaper getting them student insurance cover with Marmalade.

What is Monthly Car Insurance?
It’s a temporary car insurance policy designed for students who need a more flexible insurance option over a standard annual policy. At Marmalade we have two different options to choose from when it comes to getting insurance by the month - either our Pay as You Go Insurance, which let’s you pay for the miles you use, or student car insurance which lets you get cover from 1 to 6 weeks at a time. Both of these options are handy for students looking to borrow a parent’s car for the holidays!
