- Buy a short-term insurance policy
This is ideal if you’re house-sitting for the car’s owners, or staying with them temporarily. Cover usually lasts between one and 28 days, but some insurance providers will cover you for up to three months.
Please note that you can’t currently compare short-term car insurance with Compare the Market.
- Check you’re not already insured
Some fully comprehensive policies allow you to drive cars you don’t own. So if you have an insurance policy already, ask your insurance provider if you’re covered to drive other people’s cars.
