Good to know if you’re the car owner

If you want to help out someone who is coming home for the holidays, by giving them driving freedom in your car, you may not know where to start or know if it’s even possible. Before you pick up the phone to your current insurer, it’s worth knowing that adding a named driver for a short period of time onto your own insurance policy can be expensive, and may incur an admin fee to add and then remove the driver when they head back to University. There’s also the worry that, if they have an accident, you may lose your No Claims Discount.

Marmalade’s Student Driver Insurance cover, allows you to cover a university or boarding school student onto your car in an affordable, hassle-free way. Cover is available from 7-28 days, the perfect amount of time for students visiting home. There’s no setup fee, and, because it sits alongside the main insurance, there is no risk to your well-earned No Claims Discount! The good news is that you won’t need to sit on the phone for ages to your insurance company, as our Student Driver Insurance is easy to set up online in minutes.

Frequently asked questions

Can I get temporary insurance on my own car?

No, not with this policy. The policy is designed to sit alongside an existing motor policy of a car owned by someone else. If you have your own car, take a look at our Black Box Insurance, an annual policy which is designed to cover you to drive your own car.

I haven’t started university yet; can I still arrange cover?

Don’t worry if you’ve not started university just yet, we can still help! We’ll just need to see a copy of your offer letter and we'll get you on the road.

Is this type of cover valid on all car groups?

We'll cover cars as long as they're up to insurance group 32 and have a current market value up to £30,000.

Are there any age limits?

Our Student Driver Insurance is available for full licence holders between 18-27 years.
