Your questions answered

We know this page is packed full of information, but just in case you have any other questions, we have answered the most commonly asked ones here…

  • opener

    Who can buy Car Sharing Insurance?

    This insurance is intended for people who would like to borrow a colleague, friend or family member’s car. Both the owner of the car and the person borrowing the car can buy this insurance, but you will need the driver’s details and driving licence number to complete the purchase.

  • opener

    How old do you need to be to use Veygo Car Sharing Insurance?

    We cover drivers with full licences from 17 years and up, however, for more powerful or expensive cars we may restrict cover based on age.

  • opener

    How long can I buy this insurance for?

    We offer cover from one hour right up to 30 days, so that you can buy the insurance for the period you need it instead of having to buy more than you want. You can always extend your cover or buy more to top it up if you find you need more!

  • opener

    Is there an excess?

    Yes, there is a compulsory excess of £750 on the policy, and additional excesses for windscreen damage (£25) or replacement (£95).

    It is important that you take pictures of the vehicle before and after it is shared. If there is a claim and you are unable to provide us with pictures we will charge an additional compulsory excess of £250.

  • opener

    Can the owner be paid for the use of their vehicle?

    No, Car Sharing Insurance has been designed to enable affordable car sharing between colleagues, family and friends. If the owner is paid an amount which exceeds the cost of any fuel used, wear and tear to the vehicle, or any parking fines payable, this will invalidate the insurance.

  • opener

    Does the owner need to have insurance before lending their car?

    Yes, Car Sharing Insurance is additional cover – the vehicle must have alternative insurance in place for the duration of the rental. There must be alternative insurance in place for the duration of the Car Sharing insurance policy. This insurance cannot be used with vehicles insured on trade or fleet insurance policies.

  • opener

    Can the owner buy this cover for themselves?

    No, this cover is exclusively for people who do not own the vehicle. However, the owner can buy the cover for the driver, as long as they have the driver’s permission and personal details.

  • opener

    Can the policyholder drive any car?

    This insurance does not include ‘Driving Other Cars’, therefore the driver is only insured on this policy to drive the vehicle that appears on the Certificate of Motor Insurance. You can have multiple Car Sharing Insurance policies for the same time period if you would like to be able to drive many cars at once.

    For more powerful or expensive cars we may restrict cover based on age, so you may be able to drive some cars and not others.

  • opener

    Is the policyholder insured to drive abroad?

    No, this policy only covers you in the UK territorial limits.

  • opener

    Can the policyholder build their own No Claims Bonus?

    Yes. After 30 days of driving claim free with Car Sharing Insurance, we’ll automatically apply a discount to any future Car Sharing policies you purchase for yourself.

    In addition, if you drive claim free for 30 or more days over 12 months, you will earn a one year introductory No Claims Bonus for use with Admiral, Bell, Diamond and Elephant policies” *Eligibility criteria applies

  • opener

    As the policyholder, can I use this insurance to drive someone else’s car and still have full insurance on my own car?

    Yes, this insurance will not invalidate your full insurance on your own car. However, if you make a claim on either policy, you will be required to disclose this when purchasing any future insurance policies.

    If you are the owner and someone borrows your car and makes a subsequent claim, this will not impact your driving history or require any further disclosures when you next purchase insurance.

  • opener

    Will it affect the owner’s No Claims Bonus if a claim is made?

    No, any claims made won’t affect the car owner’s No Claims Bonus. As such, they don’t need to declare it to their insurers.

  • opener

    Can the car owner and the Car Sharing Insurance policyholder drive the vehicle during the period of temporary insurance?

    Yes, this product is great for sharing driving on long journeys as the car owner will still be covered by their own annual insurance policy.

  • opener

    Can I add other drivers on to my policy?

    No, you cannot add drivers on to the policy while it is running. If you would like someone else to use your car, you can take out a separate policy to allow them to use it.

  • opener

    Can the cover be renewed or extended?

    Yes, Car Sharing Insurance can be bought as many times as you like – and you can easily extend active policies by logging in to your Customer Account.

  • opener

    Can the cover be cancelled?

    The policyholder can cancel their cover through their Customer Account or by e-mailing car-sharing@veygo.com with their policy number.

    If the cover has not started yet, you will receive a full refund. However, due to the short-term nature of the insurance, we do not provide a refund for policies that are cancelled after the policy has started.

  • opener

    Can any remaining days cover be transferred onto another vehicle?

    No, the insurance is directly linked to the vehicle and cannot be modified. If you are unsure how long you need to buy insurance for, you can purchase a few days or hours and then purchase more later.

  • opener

    How soon after getting the cover can the car be used?

    If you request instant cover, the policy will begin as soon as payment is accepted.

  • opener

    Is breakdown cover provided with the policy?

    Breakdown cover is not provided with this policy. The owner of the car may have existing breakdown cover that may extend to a Car Sharing Insurance policyholder.
