Temporary Motor Insurance

Campton Insurance Brokers (UK) Ltd would normally advise the owner of a vehicle to take out an annual insurance policy and add any other drivers to that policy. However there are circumstances when you may want to arrange Temporary Insurance on a vehicle you do not own or to preserve your own NCB (see below for other reasons). We can offer the following 2 options;

* Please note that you are arranging the insurance direct with our temporary insurance partners and payment will be collected by them should you wish to proceed with the cover. Please also note that excesses are generally higher than under our standard annual policies.

Reasons why you may want temporary cover;

Temporary additional cars/vans

Situations may arise where you need to drive an additional vehicle for a short period of time. This could be due to your main vehicle getting repaired or the need to borrow a van when moving home. Whatever it be, tempcover.com is the ideal solution, with cover from 1-28 days available.

Temporary additional drivers

The need for additional drivers to drive your vehicle can often occur. It could be that you have an overseas visitor wishing to drive your vehicle, or your vehicle is to be driven by someone else on a long journey. No matter the circumstance we can provide cover.

To protect a no-claims bonus

A major concern for any driver is their no claims bonus, especially when they are lending their vehicle to another person. Through taking out short term car & van insurance with tempcover.com, you need not worry as you can use the vehicle without risking any existing NCD.

To obtain tax

Policyholders of tempcover.com are allowed to use their certificate of insurance to tax their vehicle. A number of other leading short term insurance providers DO NOT give consent for this. (Subject to DVLA/PostOffice acceptance)

For Immediate drive away cover

When you buy a car or van you can benefit from short term car and van insurance. Once cover has been taken out it allows for the vehicle to be driven away immediately. You also benefit from having the additional time to search the market for the most competitive annual policy.

Vehicle demonstration

The need to test drive a vehicle prior to purchase is common place. Tempcover.com allows for the prospective buyer to take out insurance that covers them for vehicle demonstration, whether it is for a new or second hand vehicle.
