Veygo’s really useful when I’m home from university to use my mum’s car. I take it out for a few days, or even for a few hours to run errands.

It’s an easy process to get insurance for as many days as I needed. Great value for a second driver on holiday.

Frequently asked questions

  • opener

    What is Temporary Car Insurance?

    We offer two types of temporary cover: cover for your own car and cover to share a friend or family’s car. If you’re sharing a car, the car needs to have an annual insurance policy in place already.
    You can buy anything from 1 hour up to 30 days. You may need to be added onto a family member’s policy for an airport run, or you may need to cover your new car before getting annual insurance; these are just a couple of ways you could use Veygo.

  • opener

    I want to share the driving, but isn’t this dual insurance?

    No. Dual insurance is when the same person has two active insurance policies on the same vehicle. As long as you’re not named on the car owner’s insurance, or any other insurance covering the car you want to learn in, you will not affect the existing cover and it won’t be dual insurance.

  • opener

    I want to share the driving, but will it affect the car owner’s no claims bonus if I claim?

    No. Our temp cover provides you with your own separate insurance for the car. Any claims you make won’t affect the car owner’s no claims bonus, so they don’t need to declare it on their insurance.

  • opener

    How much is the excess?

    The accidental damage excess on most temporary cover insurance is set at £750 and some customers can choose a lower excess of £250, depending on you and/or your car’s details. The excess for a windscreen claim can be found in your insurance policy schedule, within your account.

  • opener

    Are there any restrictions?

    In short, yes. Here's our basic age criteria...

    • We cover drivers with full GB licences from the age of 17
    • If you're 17 -21 and looking for cover on your own car, you need to have held your licence for at least 6 months
    • There's no minimum licence duration if you are borrowing a friend or family's car
    • ...For cars... we can't cover cars which are over 30 years old - sorry!

    As well as these basic age requirements, we have underwriting criteria, which is made up of lots of different factors. It's this criteria that works out your price and if you're eligible for cover when you quote.

  • opener

    How does the no claims discount work?

    As soon as you’ve driven 30 days claim free in a 12 month period with our temporary cover (excluding learner driver) to reward you for your driving, you’ll automatically receive a discount inbuilt to your Veygo quotes. This is just for temp insurance and can’t be transferred to an annual insurance policy.

  • opener

    How do I extend my insurance policy?

    Although we don’t currently offer insurance policy extensions, you can quickly take out more insurance online. We save your details to make the process even easier the second time around – just make sure you log in first!

  • opener

    Can I cancel my policy?

    Yes. You can cancel your insurance policy via your account. Just go to "Purchases", select the insurance policy you wish to cancel and hit End Policy. If your insurance policy is 30 days or less, there won’t be any refund due. For full terms and conditions, check out our Policy Book for the type of cover you have (temporary car insurance or car sharing insurance.)

    Follow our step by step article on how to cancel your insurance policy.

  • opener

    Why have I been declined cover?

    Thanks for taking the time to run through all of the questions, we needed all the info to price up your insurance. If you were declined cover, on this occasion all the info put together means we can’t offer you insurance at the moment. We’d love to be more specific but sadly we can’t on this one. It’s not one particular reason, so the team won’t know or be able to tell you more than this either. We know it’s frustrating, but hopefully we can help you in the future.

  • opener

    Does temporary car insurance show up on ASKMID?

    Yes it shows up on askMID. But it can take up to a week for the cover to show on the Motor Insurance Database.

    There should already be an annual insurance policy on the car if it’s a learner driver policy or if you’re sharing a friend or family member’s car. This is a policy and if there isn’t an annual policy in place, your cover won’t be valid. Please get in touch at contact@veygo.com to cancel.

  • opener

    Can I use Veygo to drive abroad?

    No, our insurance is only valid in England, Scotland and Wales.

  • opener

    How can I contact Veygo?

    We’re an online only business so we don’t have a number for you to call, but if you'd prefer to speak to us over the phone, drop us an email or send us a message and we’ll aim to get back to you within 15 minutes, during our opening hours.

    You can also contact us via Facebook Messenger or tweet us @VeygoUK.

    Find out how to contact us.

  • opener

    Can I get one day car insurance?

    Yes. You can get one day insurance with our temp cover. It’s completely flexible from 1 hour up to 30 days.

  • opener

    Can I get hourly car insurance?

    You can get short-term insurance for as little as one hour. So if you just need to dash out for something quick, we’ve got you covered.

  • opener

    Are there any limitations to when I can buy?

    We have a block on hourly insurance between 10pm and 5am. Basically, if you need cover to start or end between 10pm and 5am the duration of your policy has got to be at least 24 hours. But if your insurance is 24 hours or more then there is no curfew.

  • opener

    How much does temporary car insurance cost?

    It depends on a number of things but you can check our estimated prices higher up on this page. Get a quote here.

  • opener

    Is short-term insurance tax deductible?

    Our temp insurance is for personal use not for business use. If you’re driving for business-related purposes you may be able to claim back your insurance premium. Business-related purposes may include using your car to pick up or deliver business supplies or driving to visit clients. Simply commuting to and from work, however, does not count as a business-related purpose.

  • opener

    Can you get temporary insurance for 17 year olds?

    You can! If you’re insuring your own car, you’ll need to have held a license for a minimum of 6 months. But if you’re borrowing someone else's car, we’ll cover you from the day you pass your test!

  • opener

    Can someone drive my car if they are not on my insurance?

    Most UK insurance policies only cover the people named on the insurance to drive the car that they’re insuring. If someone wants to borrow your car, you can either add them as a named driver or take out temp insurance.
