The UK is facing unprecedented times thanks to the outbreak of COVID-19. Staying isolated and working from home has become the norm for some people, but if you still have to travel by car, for work or otherwise, you may find it handy to temporarily insure a vehicle on a short term policy. Whether you’re an emergency services worker or a key worker during this difficult period, there may be occasions when you only need a car or van insurance for a short period of time. For instance if you’re a critical care nurse whose usual means of travelling to work have been affected by the UK lockdown, you can be insured on a vehicle for just a day, or the next few months, through short term insurance, ensuring your travel plans are less disrupted. So, what is short term insurance? Short term cover includes; the benefits of an annual policy, legal protection up to £100,000 included and a claims hotline open 24/7. Sterling’s temporary car and van insurance offers the same protection and level of cover of an annual policy, and it’s brilliant value for money. And what’s more, Sterling have recently launched the Short Term App, to ensure buying short term insurance is as quick and effortless as possible. You could be buying a new car, borrowing a friend’s car, sharing the driving or learning to drive. Whatever your reason, you can find temporary car insurance to fit your needs at an affordable price, for all insurance groups and drivers aged 17 or over, and continue building your No Claims Discount, which is handy for your future insurance premiums.
