If you are specifically looking for a short term car insurance option, rather than an annual one, then is not a bad place to head. Essentially, it explains some of the details that you might need to know about one day insurance options – if you are new to it – and can provide a quotation for you, should you want one. However, if you have already looked into short term driving policies and even bought them before, then the site is not of much use. As a simple portal for a quotation it is okay, but doesn’t exactly add much to your knowledge base.

If you're over 50+ check out, they have special offers for motoists in the 50+ age range.

So, is really best viewed as a site that is set up for newcomers to short term insurance. The front page does contain some good information. For example, there is some description of the limitations of one day policies. It is informative in this area. It states that you need to be 19 or over to take out such a policy, that they are only offered to cover modern vehicles and that the policies can be extended up to a maximum of 28 days. Nevertheless, it then goes on to describe some elements which are a bit generic to purchasing any sort of insurance. For example’s front page states that applications for short term cover can be made at any time of the day or night. Although, this is undoubtedly true, most insurers offer this sort of service via their own websites. It is hardly valuable information.

Having said that, the site offers some excellent sub-sections which deal with more specific sorts of questions that relate to short term insurance. There is, by way of an example, a thorough section on test drive insurance. With a simple click you can find out all you need to know about driving a car on the road that you are considering purchasing. This includes what to do if you are test driving from a car dealership or from a private seller. There is also a useful section for drivers under the age of 21, who can sometimes find normal insurance quotations hard to obtain. It is also worth noting that is not just for car drivers, but also offers helpful advice for bikers who want short term insurance. As some bikers only ride their motorbikes in the summer months, this section can be especially worth reading.

In summary, the site is helpful but only if you are a relative novice when it comes to one day insurance.
