Why choose Veygo for your daily car insurance?

When you need to insure your car for a day you want a service that is quick and reliable. After entering a few details, we’ll provide you with a quote and once purchased, you’re covered instantly. This means you can be on the road within minutes, with the peace of mind that being insured brings.

What's covered with a Veygo daily car insurance policy?

We offer two types of vehicle cover:

  • Cover for a car owner on their own vehicle.

  • Cover for you to share the car of a family member or friend.

A one-day car insurance policy is for 24 hours. However, you are able to cover your vehicle for up to 60 days if needed.

Our cover is fully comprehensive. This is the maximum level you can get and will give you the peace of mind that you’re covered for damage to your car and to the cars of other people involved in an incident, as well as any injuries to the people involved.
