What is temporary van insurance?

pink zig zag line

Temporary van insurance protects drivers against repair costs in the event of an accident when driving a van. 

It works in the same way as a long-term policy – only for a shorter period, allowing you to choose as and when you need to be insured.

Because it’s temporary, drivers don’t have to spend a significant lump sum on an annual policy. Whether you need an hour, one day or monthly, you can choose what works best for you.
