Temporary Car Insurance for 3 days

Three day car insurance is probably the most popular of all the short term car insurance choices, for a number of reasons. Firstly people going away for a weekend often like to have three days cover so that they have the option of using the car on the Friday or the Monday as well; and a lot of people who buy cars take out three days cover initially because this is how long it usually takes for them to get the vehicle home, find time to get on the Internet, and choose the best annual policy at the lowest price that they can find. Whatever your reason for buying three day car insurance, however, the process is still the same.

It doesn't matter whether the car you want to insure for three days belongs to you or not, provided that it is not a hired car. Armed with the registration details of the car and your driving licence details you go online and fill in a short and easy form, and within a very short time indeed, provided that you meet the age and driving experience qualifications and the car that you wish to drive is acceptable, you are presented with a firm quotation. Accept the quote, pull out your credit card or debit card and pay online, and you can be insured for three days from that moment onwards.

It is not sufficient to be insured; you have to be able to prove it too. To make this is as easy as possible you are sent an e-mail which contains all the relevant information and a copy of the insurance certificate, which, provided that you are the proud owner of a home printer, you can make a copy of before you drive the vehicle. If it is at all possible it is advisable to do this, although it is not strictly a legal necessity. It is always possible however that the best laid plans go wrong and you could either be involved in an accident or asked to present your documents to a police officer for any reason, and since it takes several days for the police database to upload all your insurance details it would be useful to have something to show just in case a problem crops up.
