Short term car insurance for students

Exclusively for university and boarding school students aged 18-27, we offer fully comprehensive cover for 7, 14, 21 or 28 days when they're behind the wheel. Plus there's no risk to the car owner's No Claims Discount!
It can be expensive, not to mention a hassle, adding a named driver for just a few weeks, and many insurers won't allow you to add a young named driver. Save yourself valuable time and money as there's no need to sit for ages on the phone to your insurance company - our Student Car Insurance is easily set up online in minutes!

Frequently asked questions

How will this affect my policy? Is it dual insurance?arrow
It won’t affect the main insurance at all! It's a temporary policy that only covers the policyholder (the student). Here is the technical bit… Dual Insurance occurs when, in the case of insurance against loss or damage, the same items are insured against a certain risk under more than one insurance policy. Cover is only provided under the Marmalade Student Car Insurance Scheme for drivers who hold a full UK licence and are not named in the main insurance policy covering the vehicle and therefore it does not cover the same risk as the main policy.
Can my child get temporary insurance on their own car?arrow
No, not with this policy. The policy is designed to sit alongside an existing motor policy of a car owned by someone else. If they have their own car, take a look at our Black Box Insurance, an annual policy which is designed for young drivers with their own car.
Is this type of cover valid on all cars?arrow
We'll cover them to drive most family 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 restrictions?arrow
Our Student Car Insurance is available for full licence holders between 18-27 years.
